Thanks again though!

Edit: I'm planning to run 225/45/R18 snow tires all around.

Edit #2: Nvm, running 235/40/R18 - less mph change and HOLY f... Hella expensive. What are you running Parker?!
I am currently using 235/40R18. So you need to run 225/45 or 235/45. The 40s will be too small for your car.

I was trying to change my oil filter housing gasket this weekend, but one of the bolts is slightly stripped. I failed hardcore and became frustrated with it. It wasnt supposed to be that hard!!!!


Are any of you any good with this? or have any good shops to go to.

You're absolutely right, I'm sorry.

Will probably get some type of Blizzak 225/45/R18 all around for my snow setup. Which Blizzak is the best do you think?

Also, got my production number - it has begun!

I got it all done today while at work...day went by sooo slow. so I got my master mechanic buddy to help me( gave him $100) get the stripped nut off. he had mad skills. busted all of it it out in 40 minutes, take off, replace gasket. put back together. totally blew my mind. He did it differently then you DIY yourself on this forum too.

I believe so Nate. WS are more hard core snows, but will be wobbly on the freeway and such. LM are performance but have less snow traction.

Ah, alright that makes sense. So which is better than if you drive a lot of city and some highway?

If you're putting them on a BMW, I'd say LMs. I've never had a problem getting around with them (last 4 winters...)

Sounds good, I was leaning towards the LMs as well. Yes, they'll be going on a BMW.

Alright, will probably get Blizzak LMs 225/45/R18s all around then. Thanks for the help Parker and Nate.

Been slowly picking up some stuff for the F30, lol.

I have an aftermarket charge pipe...with diverter valves. Like the engineers intended.

Only they're aluminum vs plastic. Like Forge intended.
