Pouring seafoam in the secondary air pump hose to clear the carbon and hopefully take away my rough idle.

It's impossible for me to level them without cutting into the highbeam bowl so I sold them at a good price to a forum member.

Still having some problems making minor adjustments, but just put an m3 hood on. Also just recently painted the headlight trim and slightly tinted and dimmed my AE's.

Gave her a bath, changed the oil and transmission fluid and fixed my front bumper that was falling off. Stupid snow mounds in the road from the plows pulled it out of place when nemo came through.

I think Mike went for them due to weight reasons? (not sure how much they weigh but I think 119s are heavy)

lol... you would notice that, kind of hard not to with that daylight passing through though. It must have happened this morning, as the car sits just a bit lower now.

The ride is a bit more comfy, I still haven't decided whether the trade will be permanent.

Plus its a 323i. I feel the car is a bit more peppy now...could be placebo, but I doubt it.

Honestly, I just want to be like Dmax.
