Very nice, nut the seats in the bags in the sun? Explain that please. Is that so the seats absorb the leather treatment?

Oh drove a F30 335i Estoril yesterday, wow are they a big car. I used to daily and E30 so it was monstrous.

This is how you apply the Leatherique conditioner and cleaner. It is a 2 stage process where you put the first product on and then bake it, typically with the car in the sun with the windows up for several hours. Then you use the second product to clean of the first.

Been hard at work getting it to my standards.

Installed remanufactured driveshaft with CSB from Driveshaft Specialist of Texas...very happy with their product and service. Also installed new OEM exhaust hangers, you know "while I have the exhaust down."


Received the incorrect thinner non-M guibo from ECSTuning in their kit. Just a watch-out for those that order the kit. If you get SGF GAB01-017, it's the incorrect part. Contacted ECS about the mistake and they sent me the correct and thicker flex disc. All is well.



Installed new shifter bushings - shifts feel fantastic with the new ZHP knob. Old parts out:


De-modded: removed the aftermarket shift and parking brake boots - back to OEM :-)


Vanos rebuild with Beisan seals and bearing. Also replaced valve cover gasket.



Speakers buzzing like crazy so out they went


Replaced with Tymphany NE65W-04 2"



Fixed/Reinforced doors





New Michelin Pilot Sports arrive Monday Almost done with basic maintenance!

Thanks guys. Feels really good getting the car dialed in.

In doing the VANOS last weekend, discovered that a URO fan was used The fan looked brand new but it has to go. New OEM fan/clutch ready to go in:
