Not sure if they changed kits since I got mine like 2 years ago. All I know is it came with everything every single bulb in my interior was changed.

Edit: just looked into the panel and I must say it looks great. Maybe sometime in the future.

I get one of these at HD when I go. I live near a Harbor Freight now though, so I'll have to try them out!

Ha I just bought front and rear differential bushings, a pair of rtabs, and 4 window regulator clips just in case. I love oembimmerparts low low low prices and $8 shipping, but I had to separate them to get the deal.

I called the drivers Insurance Company (Safeway) to start the repair process in my bumper scrape yesterday. Afterward, I inspected my vacuum hose connected to the Air Valve, it disintegrated in my hand. It has been replaced and I ended up pulling the air filter housing and engine covers to make sure the vacuum pipe was undamaged. I will admit that I'm a little intimidated to look under the intake manifold.

* What did you do to/for your E46 today? *

Ski pass/ door delete to allow more bass through...it works pretty good and I can keep my seats up and locked in place.

I can only imagine how much harder my sub would hit if my seats went down. Ski pass delete is alright though.

Yeah it's just a single JL 10w3v3 in a slot ported box I built. Sounds good with the Harman Kardons. I'm thinking about building a box to incorporate the ski pass hole. I saw one on a thread here built with an 8" that was pretty sweet.

The looks are great I wonder about the sound. I've got a 12" Sundown D4 running 1/0 gauge. Lots of power. Wish I had more space to let air flow.

Scraped the old gasket from the DISA and put in a new one. Cleared the DISA signal implausible code. Lets see if it comes back.

Also received the rear wheel bearing, snap ring and axle nut from BMAparts.
Hopefully my mechanic can do the rear bearing tomorrow.

When people say leave 8 hours to do it, they mean it. I took stuff off for an hour and didn't get close. Can't even see or get to it without tearing apart half the engine. Ridiculous.

I can pull the rear suspension or put in an engine in half the time it takes to do this damn CCV.

I did it on a friend's and it took me the full 8. It was an hour alone just trying to connect the forward hose through the intake manifold to the separator. I'm glad my car doesn't have one.
