I washed my car today and painted the top grille (where the nozzle for wiper spray is) with the same colour as my body.. Looks much better..

Took off both intake tubes(brand new, no cracks), ICV, and DISA. Re-cleaned and inspected everything. Reassembled meticulously and also used RTV to seal up the DISA. Reason being is I was still getting a p0171 code. Hopefully its gonna be fine now cause I gotta get state inspected really soon.

Smile

Went cruising with my son to look for a new car.
I noticed some new Bimmers have the LED's in front & rear turn signals. I decided to copycat this idea to my 330I, making it unique!
Chekout my new Mod... Looks cool at night time, making others jealous!! The last picture is before the Mod.

fabricated my own LED license plate lights, since my light bulb sockets were corroded to non-existance... and it all looks OEM from the outside..

Picked up my Mtech II kit from the painter Friday night, installed it Friday night. Washed the car, then buffed out some scratches I put in it when I was installing it. Debating whether or not to put the splitters on (they are painted and fitted, but I'm not sure if I want to put them on). Looks great, should have pics up tonight!

You're get it, make sure the tooth is in the throttle body indent, tighten it good but not too hard so that it forces itself off.

Thanks man I appreciate it.
