Well I have done quite a bit of maintenance on the 330 the past few months. I hope this car lasts

Engine oil changes every ~5000 miles
Front and Rear Diff oil change
Transfer case oil change
Coolant flush
Power Steering oil change
Trans fluid change
Fuel injector clean
New Spark Plugs
New engine air filter
New micro Filter
GM top end clean
4 wheel alignment (Way off, stupid Utah roads)
Tire rotations (side to side) every 5000 miles
Carbon filter removal

And after all of that being nice-ness, it decided to blow a coil cylinder 3

All it needs now is a really good detail from my good buddy Pat

Just hit 56,000 miles too

I was highly upset at the coil though. Check engine light came on during the drive home from Bear Lake. Almost didnt make it up Parleys. Dang thing would run fine, then like poop. Cleared the light runs fine for another 50 miles. Finally narrowed it down after swapping coils up one cylinder.

Wait, so BMW of PG is wrapping items in CF now? Who does that work?

I don't mind that Melbourne Red car, not a fan of the splitters up front though.

I really want that guys Space Gray on Fox E90 M3...but I'm not giving up the coupe any time soon.

Started getting my garage ready for paint. Has been mudded and taped for 18 years now...and needed some touching up. Next weekend...sand it down, clean real well, prep, and spray!

Maybe the floor next... Any suggestions for someone who does that stuff?

...and here I thought you wanted to sell me a car! Where's your dedication?! Just kidding, I'm in no hurry. Take your time and get better from whatever it is that happened.
