The other night I looked up a DIY and realized that it was pretty simple so I pulled it and lubed it last night.

Couple squirts of Kroil and its good to go for a while.

I will probably order a new one soon but this will hold me over for a little while.
Love Kroil. 👍

It has been pouring rain and foggy constantly here in Georgia so I decided that it was time to do the "Lego Mod." I started by pulling my light switch out.

I took the switch apart and found the piece that I needed to replicate.

Couldn't find any Legos but I do have some nylon laying around. Nylon stock is quickly becoming my favorite thing to work with. Did some measuring, cutting, and filing until I had something that looked familiar...

The only thing left to do was to cut the stops off the button. My Klein flushcutters made quick work of that.

I put everything back together and as you can see from the video it clicks perfectly.

Buttoned it back up, started the car and pressed the button. This is a good sign.

And of course some shots of the fogs on and off.

I have some LED bulbs and a sticker for the button that I hope matches the front fog switch on the way. Now I am ready to scare tailgaters, and of course be seen in the rain and fog...

Klii Motorworks. @kliimw on insta.

I played around with the lighting a little more this weekend. I added LED license plate lights, and LED bulbs in the rear fogs.

Just in time too, it was dark on my drive in this morning. I am not doing well with the time change.

Maybe. I bought bulbs to try but they wouldn't light up so I found these assemblies.

I hadn't really looked that closely to be honest.

they work.

I assumed they were factory.

somebody that knew something owned my car prior, as the headlight washers were already disabled.

for sure though need to do that gauge cluster.

The license plate bulbs transitioned from halogen to LED at some point. My 07 has halogen, 11 has LED. Probably an LCI vs. pre-LCI thing.

I was a little worried about my car catching this Corona business so I modified my intake.

Untitled by Nick Wood, on Flickr

But in all seriousness, I got a euro airbox for the wagon and put it in last night.

Of course I cleaned it and treated the whole box with Solution Finish, and coated it with Gyeon Trim.

Sweet thread, man! (ineedabubble from GJ) I am seriously considering going down this route if I can't find an E90 M3 DCT in my price range in the next few months.

Super boring update. The filter that came with my eurobox was nasty so I picked up a new one.

I may be done with the car for a little while. I don't really have many more mods planned and with all this Covid stuff I'm trying to not spend a lot.

I put 12mm on the rear for looks. 15mm looks better but there was a little rubbing on big bumps.
