My Ride: is slow
I just did my Idle control valve. It was very difficult but now you can barely hear the engine at idle. So worth my cut up hands.

My Ride: BMW 330ci convertibl
Added LED tail lights

Got these from Bimmian, smoke/ clear, after trying others. Must be sure to get the ones for convertible! Last ones had a gap, even though they said they would fit, different seller.
