Let's face it; we're mainly here for maintenance montages.

Just replaced the suspension on one side, now here's the other side...pop!
Hours of cleaning the engine bay with a toothbrush? Here's the before and after.
Just rebuilt an engine at great expense and it failed on the first drive...45mins later and it's entirely rebuilt again!

Nice video as usual. Just makes me more excited to get my suspension refreshed finally. Trying to get all my subframe bushings done before being able to move forward on my E82.

Congrats to Sreten, just saw this on my YouTube feed yesterday. What a cool piece.

I have a B7 too, if by chance you see this Sreten how is that lower temp N62 thermostat holding up for you? I'm interested in doing the same mod to mine but I've read horror stories about the one that seems to be for sale everywhere made by Hamburg Technic.

The result is unreal. I realized at some point that my eyes were telling me I was looking through a tinted glass pane rather than a reflection. Amazing. And surely wicked expensive.

F*ck, washing cars is tedious! The result is unreal, sure, but then what? Just stand and look at it in a clean room in case it gets dust on it? Heaven forbid mildly acidic rain should fall on it, never mind bird sh1t, leaves, brake dust, grit,......... Hard pass!

To each, their own. Next!

Haha, yeah I was wondering how much the bag of stuff would retail for, even.

I wouldn't thank them for it though; I just want to use my car without worrying about normal wear and tear (and dirt). So long as the paint is protecting the metal, I'm happy.

I think he mentioned he's gonna sell this to fund the E92 project, so keeping it clean will be someone else's problem. Can't wait for him to get back to the E92
