    Weight reduction ftw! What's up with that two cardboard list on the car? Oh and are you going to dye the headliner black?

    Roadkill!!! T-bone made me do it, but Freiberger and Finnegan are on to something, it makes remembering what you gotta do and what you've done so much easier!

    The headliner is already black, the flash just washed out the colour a bit.

    So I called BMW Canada today about the recall on my car, they say since it's originally a US vehicle it's not in their system and they don't deal with US spec vehicles so I have to talk to BMW North America (BMW NA is only for the US, doesn't actually mean North America). I talk to BMW NA and the car is in their system and I'm covered for the recall but I won't get notifications regarding any possible future recalls.

    This is absolutely stupid.

    I think I have a problem...

    I keep ordering parts, they never seem to end. Went and picked up another batch of parts today, mainly bushing and maintenance parts. I decided that I would replace the rear control arm bearings and pretty much all the bushings in the car, except for the diff bushings since they're known to last a long time even with high levels of power and you have to replace the diff cover to change 2 out of 3 of the bushings. Everything is being replaced by OEM rubber bushings except for the subframe bushing, which I've opted to go with a solid aluminum set, and the rear trailing arm bushings, which will be replaced by an OEM sealed spherical bearing along with a special housing. With the latest M3/M4 having its rear subframe directly bolted into the chassis, a lot of E46 and E9x owners have tried solid subframe bushings and have found no increase in NVH with stock diff bushings, and as an added bonus the solid bushings I chose have a greater contact area to help distribute the load from the subframe onto the truck floor, which is know to crack and rip. I also finally got some proper t-bolt clamps so hopefully I won't blow any more charge pipes

    Is that Superblue? Where the hell did you find it in North America?

    It's ATE Typ200, same exact stuff as superblue but without the blue dye. I actually regret ever using the Superblue in the first place, it dyed my whole braking system blue and now when I flush it the fluid still looks green after I've flushed over 3L through the system.

    Oh. I guess I'll see if the same happened to me shortly.

    Maybe Superblue isn't suppose to stay in for very long.

    I'll be flushing my system again in the next few days, I'll see how bad it is now that it's been a year since I flushed it out but I've heard it permanent and it happen as soon as you use it.

    I actually suck when it comes to patience and as a result I broke the front windshield, ended up with some dents in some areas and burnt my pinky really badly.
