DrLeadFoot's Achievements

  1. Chasing a rough idle so I got my injectors flowed and cleaned. They are flowing great and I threw in some new filter baskets while I had them out. Didn't solve the problem. Next up is cleaning the ICV & throttle bodies. Installed some 2006 M6 heated front seats. Need to wire up the new-to-me heated seat buttons and then I'm golden! The M3 will see some winter duty while the wagon is under the knife 💯😲
  2. Eventuri intake installed. Left the fog light ducting out as I don't have an M5 bumper yet. Been driving this a ton! Some fun goodies should be arriving in the next month. Stay tuned!! 🤪
  3. Had BMW Milwaukee North Body Shop install and paint new oem BMW rear glass and rear hatch. Also, added a carbon fiber spoiler. Popped on some Pilot Sport 4S but ordered 255 rears instead of 275. Well, popped a rear tire on Mother's day with the family so I fortunately got to get the 275 rears mounted! The Mobile Tire Pit Crew is the JAM! They come to your house and mount and balance on their truck. Worth every penny! Wagon is running great! Pumping gas weekly, topping off oil biweekly and smiling daily 😄
  4. 145amp truck alternator going in! 2 weeks ago I finally popped in the Drives Shaft Shop Level 5 700hp Axles. They are not direct bolt in for this '89 325is. Had to remove the ABS ring and grind down a manufacturing "bump" on the inside of the hub for them to fit. This involves mounting, removing the axle and grinding 10-ish times to get the clearance right. The output shafts are SUPER beefy. Out of a 930 Porsche I think? Cut off some more fenders to try and stop the tires rubbing. I think it worked 💪
  5. Mike replaced the front main seal, pressurised PS line, reservoir mounts and new side markers. New Pilot Sport 4S tires on all corners!
  6. Stock shock mounts installed!
  7. Maintenance!!!!! Slow leak in the coolant reservoir, front diff whining on decel, clunk in front suspension all addressed along with some other items! Grabbed a used diff and Mike added new input and output seals. New o-rings on the trans cooler. New serpentine belt. New locking/hazard button. New swaybar links. "New" suede steering wheel with white label airbag. New Phillips 4300k xenon blubs.
  8. Got an engine light for a cylinder 6 misfire. Popped in some new plugs and swapped the cylinder 5 & 6 coils. Fault transfered to cylinder #5 so I swapped that coil with a good used one. Back on the road! Have a slight coolant leak I'll be hunting down but everything else is great!
  9. Thanks! I think just keep it clean and keep the drain holes clear. We'll see how long it lasts!
  10. Got the wagon back from Mike's place. He did a ton of work. A lot of new suspension arms with monoballs added where I could. Also some e60 M5 bits! New battery, clutch slave cylinder, antenna, washer fluid funnel, fog light and properly coded in the abs module. I drove up to St. Paul to trade my tailgate +cash for a rust free 525i tailgate with the same color. Mike fixed some of the wiring that was breaking apart. A new roundel for the tailgate and a Dinan strut bar top off this round! Feels like a whole new car! Loving it! Just have a exhaust leak from a hole in the new headers and an O2 sensor fault. Almost getting to mechanical perfection!
  11. Evolve Medusa headers installed! Mike and I had to drop the engine to get the stock manifolds out and the new headers in. Rawspeed welded up a new Y-pipe and 2 high flow cats to bring the new into the rest of the custom exhaust. Was running 1 high flow cat but that was choking the system at the old Y pipe. It is a whole new car! Really feeling the added POWA!
  12. They were just too loud. I'm going to stock shock mounts as well. Thing sounds like it is rattling loose when it is super cold out.
  13. M3 time!! New cross drilled and slotted CSL front rotors, crossed drilled and slotted rear rotors, new front PFC pads, pulled poly RTABS and replaced with OEM BMW, alignment, avant radio installed and driver's side ignitor.
  14. Had Mike pop in new front oem wheel bearings. We removed the oem grease and packed them with Redline's CV grease to help avoid premature wear. Replaced the leaking power steering pump as well.
  15. Trans started slipping so got it replaced with a 94k mile trans out of a 325xi. Got the starter rebuilt, new trans filter/gasket. Tensioner & idler pullies replaced. New oil filter housing gasket and hood latches. Mike also made the rust dissappear by the rear wheel arches. Not bad for a napa rattle can! Now we just need some snow! All work done at 212k miles.
