Hello Colorado, Goodbye 2020

Still have my '09 e92.

107,570 miles. Only drove it about 300 miles this year with Covid...

Still pulls hard.

In the 11 years since I bought it new from (now gone) Murray Motors in Denver:

Oil changes every 4k or so (sometimes more frequent)
HPFP @5k - warranty
Used Brembo BBK @ ~10k
Numerous brake fluid flush/bleed/replacements
New spark plugs every 10k or so

40k miles
Battery replacement
02 sensors replacement
1 walnut blast @ ~ 42k (oil catch install at that time too --> really helps, checked @85k, need to check again)

Between 50k and 60k miles
Fuel Injectors
VC (cracked) and gasket replaced
Alternator replacement (twice, but because original replacement also went bad )
Oil filter housing gasket replacement (same time as alternator, 'cause the alternator is a PIA, and helps to remove oil filter housing)
Trans & front/rear diff and TC fluid replacement (need to do again)
Right front half-shaft (CV joint) replacement

80k miles
Water Pump & thermostat replacement

Car has been trouble free since the water pump.

To do:
Front hub replacement
Possible left front half shaft replacement
Diff & Transmission fluid replacement
Possible walnut blast

Still like this car and enjoy working on it, even though engine bay makes if feel like you are working on a 10# of s#!t in a 5# bag.
