  1. I have seen this car posted for sale multiple times over the last 10 years starting out looking mint with 70k on it. The previous owner seems to have let it go mechanically/cosmetically. It was for sale 3 weeks ago for $1700, not running, in oconomowoc I believe. It has been cleaned up a lot for this current ad
  2. I wish you great success in your transition to fatherhood. If things go sideways you can always go out for milk.
  3. You did a really nice job with this car and i’m glad you got out and enjoyed it while you owned it. See you over on siennachat forums. My username there is “goldfishcrackercarpetstain99”
  4. https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/d/delafield-2003-mini-cooper-project-car/7384702080.html not a runner: Could be a nightmare of a project or it could be a chance to do the “while you’re in there” stuff and come out the other side with a reasonably reliable car.
  5. Very much appreciate the invitation👍👍 Sounds amazing! I have 3 soccer games that day so I will need to do some coordinating in order for it to work.
  6. Saw @damnboy037 near hwy100 and grange yesterday making me want an M2 even more. Slightly bothered that you didn't notice me in the gray minivan 😶 /s
  7. Very nicely done! Im in for the detailing party
  8. Also check the lobes for wear. They can be purchased new
  9. I definitely know what its like to have this little guy on red when its 90 out 😄
  10. I know I say this a lot, but we have a really great group and I always look forward to the picnic. I have made a lot of really great friends through this hobby. I was most inspired by the blue e92 335i automatic, open diff, with brakes, suspension (stock sways), and “FBO” mods which according to the owner, has 7000 track miles and ran a personal best 2:37 at RA.
  11. Auto to Manual coding in NCSExpert: All credit to 50sKid on youtube for the information. He had some trial and error in his video but I consolidated the correct required steps for future reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiBr1h9j0bU NCS Expert 1) File>Load Profile>Expert mode (or Factory Coding, depends on which version of NCSExpert you have) 2) Go to “F1 VIN/ZCS FA”>”F3 ZCS/FA f.ECU” (reads vehicle order from module) 3) Select E46 Chassis 4) Select AKMB 5) Select “F2 Enter FA”, ignore incorrect VIN, click OK 6) Remove $205 (automatic transmission control module) from vehicle order by selecting it from the list and hitting the delete key. 7) Hit “OK” to exit 8) Click “F6 Back” 9) Click “F4 Process ECU” 10) Select AKMB, click “OK” 11) Click “F2 Change Job” 12) Select “FA_Write” , click “OK” 13) Click “F3 Execute Job” watch for it to show “job ended” under AKMB Now write the updated vehicle order to the ALSZ module: 14) Click “F1 Change ECU” 15) Select ALSZ 16) Verify that JOBNAME = FA_Write, if not, select “F2 Change Job” to “FA_WRITE” 17) Click “F3 Execute Job” Exit NCS Expert 18) Open NCS Expert to check that $205 is gone from the vehicle order (steps 1-5) 19) Click “F6 Back” 20) Click “F3 Process Car” 21) Click “F1 Code Car” (these steps reset everything to default, this will not undo the $205 being removed from vehicle order) 22) If trans icon is flashing, unplug transmission control module. 23) Unplug blue connectors near DME (GM Module) Run INPA Clear error memory Clear adaptations You will know you are successful when the gear indicator on the instrument cluster is no longer illuminated (will not show a gear icon, will not show "P, R, N, D, or S", nothing) and the car can start with the clutch switch/clutch pressed
  12. Very disappointed in your intestinal fortitude
  13. We dont need to be that early, I have VTEC. See you at Qdoba at 9:00a
  14. Breakfast burritos are still only served at the Tosa Qdoba. Well worth the detour if you are in need of sustinance.
  15. You are doing it right
  16. Absolutely do it! They are cool people and it will give you insight as to why they can charge what they charge. FWIW, the rarer stuff is in an offsite storage warehouse.
  17. Which trans oil did you use? I tried Redline MTL, Redline D4 ATF, Pentosin MTF-2 (supposedly OE spec fluid), and Bimmerworld’s recommendation Redline MT-LV. MT-LV was the best experience followed by Pentosin MTF-2 as a close 2nd. Life gets better after removing the CDV Sell me your F30
  18. Curiously, thats just how trucks are from the factory. Helps show what’s original and what’s not????

    All kidding aside, I have a long list of cars that I want, but what you want and what you need are two different things. There are a few non-car-related goals i’m aiming for that influenced my decision to sell and once the dust settles i’ll see where i’m at and what makes sense at that point.

    Forgot to update this thread. Decided to store some drugs purchased from a very seedy location in new berlin under the valve cover since the crankcase vapors are supposed to throw off drug-sniffing Kaisers. I think one of the meth crystals bent a valve stem because cylinder 6 now has low compression. I didnt want to mess with it and figured id screw someone over while I could. LOL new owner
  21. Disagree. I recently installed Morimoto 6000K headlight bulbs. It’s more of a street racing/roll racing car than something you would want to push too hard on a racetrack
  22. Hint: You will find the next 3 baggies when you pull the valve cover 👍🏼👍🏼
