    The little V8 that could: 530i Daily Log

    Do you have a air powered brake bleeder? Somebody broke my Motive power bleeder and debating if I wanna fix it or upgrade to something that hooks up to compressed air.

    The little V8 that could: 530i Daily Log

    So this didn't end up making it to the wedding either! I ended up replacing the whole dip stick with a used one and changed the oil, and replaced the belt deflection pulley. Fired her up for a test drive around the block and the brakes felt soft. Started the process of bleeding the brakes. Rear passenger was fine, but no fluid from the rear driver. Took the caliper off to swap with a spare thinking it was seized and noticed no fluid coming out of the rubber line. Nothing changed with the new caliper either and now I couldn't get fluid from the RR side either. Fronts bleed out basically what was in the caliper themselves. So now I have a completely disfunctional brake system as I ripped the parking brakes out think that those were hanging up but in reality the soft lines were swollen. Possibly a crushed line too? I'm assuming the worst at this point that it will need all new lines and I'll replace the master cylinder as a precaution. I have SS braided lines to replace stock soft sections already and still need to source 540i rear calipers brackets if I don't find the pair I should have in my stash 😡

    It's like the Same but Different: My 528e build

    Over due non-update from over a month ago. I attempted pulling the injectors but was reminded that the engine harness was in poor condition and ended up breaking a coolant sensor. It was wired without a oem plug and the connections broke off the sensor itself 😔 The car is buried in storage now.

    Which M3 is Best M3?

    US M5’s are meh but a proper euro is the tits. How many E60 M5’s are gonna make it to 2-300k though? I’d argue the maintenance costs aren’t that different over the lifetime of the car. I’d still vote e39 as the overall best too though.
  6. @patsbimmer1 all the info seems to be from your for sale post lol

    Or plan on buying used hardware on eBay when a few break. We got all the originals zinc coated when we built @BMWben‘s wheels. A few bolts ended up needing replacement, nuts wouldn’t thread etc. for not much more we could’ve just replaced everything with all new.

    Chrome imitation powder coat doesn’t last more than a year either and plan on just buying new hardware.

    Bummer but at least it wasn’t the whole front clip! Also glad you got to drive this some before the end of the season.
