Actually the trick is to first take the dome light cover off, then take the map light surrounds off, the tabs will be exposed, you then take a paper clip and pull the tabs towards you. Came off in 30 seconds!

Took it in to diagnose fan cycling and high fan speed during 8 degree weather, power cuts, not coming up to normal oil temp, etc. Expecting water pump replacement

Installed front M3 LCA. Due to winter ride height max camber from LCA and TC Kline camber plates is -2.75. Wonder how much of a drop yields -3.0 neg camber? I also removed the fold-down rear seats and cargo security screen; saved 77 pounds.

I believe it! that security screen housing must weigh 35lbs alone. It's an incredible anchor.

Had to pop the plastic casing off of the rear side of the center console so I could fish my aux-port wire back through the hole because the entire plastic input piece fell in.

Pulled the trigger on a set of 437M wheels. Unfortunately, the stock 255/35s rub in the front, so I'll be getting 235s. The rear 275s seem fine for now.

Got a puncture on the motorway



Found the object



But it wasn't until i went to the tyre shop and discovered just what it was!



Can only assume that the front tyre flicked it up and then my rear tyre went straight over it.
