I want to change my transfer case fluid this year, I chagned both differential fluids last year.

At the track, I launch at about 2-2.4k rpms and get about 1.75-1.85 60s and the car seems to run like a champ still, cross my fingers.
Sounds like you've got some nice mods on your xi... I stopped by VAC a few weeks ago to check out their shop, very nice place.

I was contemplating doing the diff's and transfer case flushes myself, but I don't have a pump so I just let Rahal do them today. I'm glad I did too as my front differential pinion seal was leaking pretty bad so they replaced it and the connector.

Let me know if/when you do the carbon cleaning as I would like to do this as well.

No problem, I enjoy tackling diy jobs but work keeps me so damn busy I hope I dont tackle something that will end up being a bigger hassle than I originally thought. I come from working on Japanese cars so we'll see how this translates to German auto.

And ya, Vac is definitely in a dump of an area but they for sure have the hardware to do some major modifications in house.

If anyone is in need of Pre-LCI side skirts let me know. I still have my oem skirts and need them out of the garage. Individual can have them, they are jet black.

They have a minor scuff that can hardly be seen when on the car and they could use a good buff to bringback to life.

Shoot me a pm if interested.

Lucky man, you live close to Pittsburgh Raceway. I caught the drag strip bug last year and living in the South Hills is a hell of a drive out 22 to get there.

Congrats on the purchase.

Just had a wheel repaired/refinished. All Pro wheel repair - Bridgeville/South Hills area. Great match, good guy. He travels to the local dealerships M-F, but fixes wheels on the weekend at Bower Hill FVD. His cell (412) 583-7298

Second time I had him repair wheels, in case anyone is looking

Yea thats the joy of leasing...new one every 3 years. I'll have my current one a bit longer since the F30 xdrive did not go into production until this month. They let me extend the lease until my new one comes back from Germany after I take delivery.
