Re: Learned something new (to me) about our subframes

Foam can be drilled through. However it's been advised not to do foam before any weld work (if required).

Re: BMW upset with E46 M3 enthusiasts

I drove an E36 M3. And to make matters worse...an automatic E36 M3. Didn't feel much different than my non-M at the time. But yeah, the S50/S52 motors are nowhere near as exhilarating as the S54.

Re: Money saved doing your own work, but to what extent?

You can always resell your tools and recoup some of the cost. You can't resell the labor you paid for. :D

Re: Turn Signal fell out

Happened to me a few years back. Just replace the corner light. You have an 02 M3 which I'm assuming is screw-in tab like mine.

Re: Review of B spec tune + E85 (335 whp and 265 wheel torque - dyno charts included)

So not being savvy with E85, I decided to do a little more research on it. Are you all experiencing a decrease in fuel economy running on E85?

Re: I guess its my turn: crappy Blackstone

Many factors contribute to bearing wear and their longevity. Climate, driving style/habits, type of oil, etc. 100,000 miles is a good rule of thumb based on the massive amount of oil analysis data...

Re: Feeler - O-ring packs for coolant hoses

Cool idea. I thought of doing something similar awhile back when I was replacing cooling system components but never got around to it. I'd be potentially interested.

Re: New bringatrailer e46 m3 article

Great comment from the comments section of the article. I was never old enough to own an E46 new but I enjoy hearing stories about what those moments were like.

Re: infamous 3rd gear grind

Just for clarification because I'm not as active on the forum as I once was, but are transmissions of concern now? Last I recall, if properly maintained, the Getrag 420g transmissions in these cars...
