todays red car update:

removed the front grills, kidneys, lower air vent and the rings around the headlights - prepped, primed and later in day painted flat black - everything looks great and matches

striped and cleaned right strut carrier and repainted - re-installed the right strut, removed lower control arm (waiting on new one)

installed 65mm studs front and 75mm studs in the rear

and cleaned and prepped the right underside of the car from the engine bay back to the gastank - and applied POR, then later in day applied undercoating

I am still waiting on the rear rotors, front control arms, FCABs, tie-rods - can't get anything completed...ugh








damn the brakes are small - i am used the the 380mm and 355mm (front and rear of both E46s)

E30 iX parts - I have learned to just suck it up and buy only from BMW directly...I have received SO MANY parts from vendors that are not for the iX as advertised and as communicated. The iX just has too many specific parts and I think these vendors are relying on computers when they say, "yup, it fits"

I would have the front overhaul done today - but the Goodridge stainless lines are too short, the tie-rods are RWD E30, the sway bar links (that I installed but wondered why the weird angle) are wrong...

So, the car is stuck in the garage, waiting for rear rotors, tie-rods, fr sway links, fr brake lines

Oh yea, I also found that the inner axle shaft boot on the left front is torn - I am glad I found that before it ruined the axle

more to say - sorry to rant....
