    I made a deal on nearly mint black sports seats to replace my ripped up comfort seats!

    I cleaned a double handful of tree seeds and small leaves out of the drain pockets at the rear corners of the engine bay.

    I took it to the tire store to get the slow leak in the right front taken care of.

    New set of Michelin PS 2 ZP from Costco. Drives like a new car.

    Well, for YESTERDAY, I broke the glovebox latch. Thing's missing a screw and that probably contributed to the problem.

    TODAY, I yanked the latch out of the parts car and tossed it into the tool box for when I get a chance to swap it out.

    TODAY, I may also fill it with the first new fuel it's seen since about November. :D

    Wasn't today (coupla days ago) but...

    - Oil service
    - Tire rotation
    - New bulb in right-side brake light
    - New bulbs in instrument cluster where mileage and temperature are
    - Also - got me a hands-free bluetooth-enabled device - love it. Completely distraction-free calls!!

    Couple of weeks ago, took "her" to the body shop to repair some annoying dings.

    Near Future - a complete detail (once the stupid yellow pollen is done falling!) and new mats... :D:cool:

    In the past couple of days I got the M3 ready for the driving season.

    Heres the list

    Changed brake/clutch fluid, ATE Type 200
    Changed coolant, BMW coolant w/ water wetter (I don't know if it works, but it is PINK!!!)
    Replaced thermostat
    Replaced fan clutch (was running warm at idle, haven't driven it yet, did it just last night)
    Cleaned, clay barred, waxed the heck out of it, Zymol.
    Two new taillight gaskets, no leaking but had them off for the waxing so replaced.
    Two new exhaust hangers old ones were cracked and thread bare (only five years and 8k on them) :(

    Tomorrow the M3 gets to go to the Carlisle Import show! I am very excited. :D:D

    (If we can keep this going I will post often! :D)

    man, i was planning on going to this. I have never been before but it looks like it is in open fields. Will all the rain the past few days effect it?

    What did i do to my BMW?????

    Today and every day I wipe the fine dust that is in the air here in Florida with a California duster. I guess i could call it a Florida duster.
    I used a swiffer duster to wipe the the brake dust from my wheels.
    This Sunday like every Sunday I will check and adjust the air pressure in my tires.
    At 82 I now leave all mechanical work for the younger and more qualified.
    During the 1970s we did all of our own work on the 2002s. But that was then and this is now.

    Some years it is great and some it it good, I always have a good time. They always run it rain or shine. Tomorrow is suppose to be sunny!!! yea. The driving lanes are paved, only where you park is grass, should be okay. Just make sure you have your 275s on so you don't sink in!! :p

    What I did for my car today

    Satch: I only use that certain product when the car gets really dirty. I do not use dulling soap and water. No washing. No drying. Just 30 min and I am done.

    At the risk of encouraging you. . .

    Okay, I'll bite: What is that magic elixir again? And where can you buy it in very small quantities?

    If you say Amway, I'm outta here. . . .

    I adjusted my driver/passenger door. It used to be somewhat hard to open... I'd always get the little tap on the window because girls would think the door is locked. Not anymore though, after doing the adjustment, the handle opens like butter :)

    Also ordered my valve cover gasket set, I've been leaking a tiny bit of oil lately.

    To the 330i (Dinan3):
    Changed rear diff fluid (Redline), and added a neo magnet drain plug from BavAuto.
    Then I replaced the Eagle Eyes LED taillight(left) for a bad bank of turn signal LEDs.
    Then, I cleaned off some bird poop. :mad:

    Dusting this one off. Gave my '01 325i a bath today. Up until last winter it never saw salt. I've had to drive it more this winter due to our other vehicles taking turns going out of service. So. broke out the pressure washer, sprayed it down, wash with a mitt then hit the undercarriage with a rotating attachment. Rust is not an option. I bought this baby new back in February '01, 14 years ago, and want it around another 14 years - or more. :)
