Update 05/31/2018

Tires were getting worn out in the front due to heavy negative camber so I switched the old Continental Extreme Contacts and wrapped them with some Michelin Pilot Sport 4s. What A Difference! Not as easy to throw the back end out as it was with the Continentals.

I was recommended to go to Dynasty Auto here in Orlando. Bill, the tech, who took care of the alignment was great. He asked me good questions and cared about my preferences in regards to set up.

Update* 06/01/2018

This actually happened a couple weeks ago but just now got around to posting it.

I noticed the front left rotor was hard to rotate when I was changing out my end link so I decided to clean out the pins and lube everything up with Syl-Glyde Brake Lube and I also noticed that there was major rust on the piston.

That ultimately didn't work so I decided to buy a rebuilt caliper from Centric for $139 minus the $75 core charge since I didn't want to spend the $300 on a BMW caliper. I eventually want to upgrade the brakes anyway so I figured I give it a shot for now. So far I have not had any complaints about it and it works.

I ended up walking into my garage to a big puddle of washer fluid...My windshield washer pump was leaking from the pump so I ended up replacing it with a Continental VDO washer pump for $35 and an OEM grommet for $5. Easy Fix thanks to this forum!

Don't ever buy this washer pump from URO Parts as it is crap. I ended up returning it and buying the VDO from Pelican Parts.

I also had a chance to replace my old reflectors since one of them was cracked and I just didn't like them. I bought these from Turner and they turned out pretty nice. **Pictures to come on the finished product**

Update 08/30/2018

New Floor Mats make all the difference.

The old one just for reference. It was horrible driving with the mat rising up to the pedals.
