Oddly enough I really like this. It's a nice change of pace to see someone do something unique.

Thanks, really digging it. I?ve seen several splatter jobs but most simply flick the paint causing lots of little specs everywhere. I wanted more of a drip effect.

Did a transmission drain, new filter / seal and gaskets, and fill. And did a drain and fill on my transfer case.

I can't remember the thread, but who ever came up with a seal puller using the plastic plumbing was great. Pulled the filter seal right out. Had to rig up a 24mm socket with a 17mm socket inside to make an impromptu seal driver to get the new one back in place.

And a 14mm by 30mm long section of allen key with a ratcheting 14mm wrench works perfect to get to the fill plug on the transfer case.

First time doing a drain/filter/fill on your transmission? Mileage? Notice any improvement after the change?

Just went out and reset the transmission and transfer case wear sensors with my Schawben tool.

I'm at 162K miles and NEVER have had this drain/fill done. I want to do it but I am afraid of ruining my transmission.

I would first plug up some type of diagnostic system and check to see if the wear sensor for the transmission fluid is faulted.

ordered new angel eyes, new carbon fiber b/w Rundels and black 335I badge. Also got the full set of BMW shadow line trim around the windows. All this plus turbo install. This weekend is going to kick my ass. But so worth it.

While thinking of PSS10 coils, I decided to keep the FSD's for now and added Eibach pro kit lowering springs (front only). I included after and before pictures. Really enjoy look and ride so far and no rubbing with the 275/245 Michelin tires!

I had a cup of coffee and drove mine into downtown Seattle prior to the 7am rush hour. I averaged 26.8mpg on the trip. Uneventful, going with some N54 buddies to Twin Peaks this evening to talk cars over a drink or two.

Very nice! Do you mind if I ask where you got your brakes from, those are the BMW Performance ones right?

Thank you, and yes, those are the performance ones I got from Tisher. Had them for 6 years I think and flawless and holding up great. I might be crazy but I like the look of these better than the newer "rounded" generation performance brakes, minus the discs being larger which I like, obviously.

Well, skipped the wax today.

Instead replaced the seal on the panoramic sunroof. Had a slight issue on the first couple of teaching cycles before everything started sliding like they should.

Upgraded the transmission tune and flashed the European 330 GM firmware. Very nice improvement.

Installed 55w ballasts in the adaptive HID's and swapping in new H7's for my "get outa my way" flashers.

And just finished putting a new seal for the glass in the rear hatch.

New front struts
Drain and fill front and rear differentials
Drain and fill transfer case, reset adaptations and reset fluid wear indicators
Drain, replace filter, filter seal and pan seal. Fill and reset fluid wear indicators
Replace panoramic sunroof seal
Replace rear glass hatch seal


I think that is just damn near everything I wanted to get done this week.



Now to clean it back up and ready to go again.
