Decoupling tool is only needed if you install used injectors or remove your existing injectors and need to reinstall them.

New injectors have fresh seals and caps. So basically when you remove the tight cap you have a minute or two to quickly get the new injector in and seated before the seal starts to expand and thus seal.

IF you try and reuse the old seals they'll have expanded already and wont seal properly, hence you should use a special tool to install new seals

Ive noticed a correlation between aftermarket tails and water in the battery area. Correlation doesnt equal causality though

Frustrated with the BMW coils, I built a circuit to run the Audi R8 red top ignition coils. Very rewarding when she fired up.

Picked up a set of M3 mirrors last week from a member.

Only problem was the covers were white and my car is moonstone silver. So I decided to go full black line by getting the covers painted black and then hydro-dipped with a great carbon fibre pattern.

Happy with the results and looking forward to installing the mirrors this weekend.

Drove to 1 hour to flow design to see if they could help me design a front lip that fits an e90. Fingers crossed that they can make one without breaking the bank.

A few days ago I noticed some problem with wheel vibrations. At first I wanted to fix it by myself but today I decided to use some help of Tech Drive car service near me in Auckland, NZ. They used Hunter Road Force Balancer to balance the wheels, it took only an hour to spin the tyre on the rim to the correct spot.

Prep, prep and even more prep before I top coat the roof, rear quarters and boot of the e36, the undercoat is now so smooth you can see a reflection in it
