    What's even worse: Stevie D's numbers are notoriously conservative...

    Hey, do non-BMWs count? Somewhere between the start of this @#$! thread and this point, I worked my fingers to the bone on my rally car and punted a few Subies around Eastern Washington...

    Forgot to mention.
    Fixed the ABS/DSC/Run flat indicator on our MINI.
    Total parts cost, $60.00 for an ABS sensor and once again our MINI doesn't care that the box doesn't say MINI on it. :)
    Also had my front wheels of the ti balanced. No more shaking steering wheel. :)

    Changed an instrument cluster bulb in my E30. Well, actually both of them.
    What a PITFA job for a lousy bulb.
    Guess doing it in 95 degree weather doesn't help things.

    Just an oil change, using lubro moly. Cleaned the interior. Inspected the brakes, air filters,etc. looks good for another 6500mi.

    Finally admitted that I would NEVER GET AROUND to changing the oil and filter, the gearbox oil, the differential oil, the brake fluid, the coolant, the fuel and air filters, and adjusting the valves: You know, Service II.

    So I paid Carl Nelson to do it!

    Replaced the driver side cabin air filter housing. The mounting bracket for the under-hood alarm had broken so when the hood closed, the alarm switch was not pressed all the way down and so the alarm would, in a short time, go off.
    From now on, I think I'll close the hood more gently and check the switch every time I open the hood to make sure it's not frozen.

    Dry-washed the car. Clayed the trunk. Hit one of the dull places with Meguiar's 105. God Bless Father Meguiar.

    Just gutted my interior on my 89 325i and detailed the outside. I gutted the interior because I am changing the color to black and have leather seats.

    I washed the Z4 M Roadster on Monday evening and then spent all day Tuesday claying, machine polishing, and machine waxing the car. First detail since I bought the car four weeks ago. Next time I'm not going to do that when the thermometer reads 90 degrees!

    Jeez, that Z4 cleaned up beautifully. It even looks like it has a hard top!
