      So as you know, the car wouldn't start after I re-did the wiring.

      I was pretty sure it was the cps so I ordered a new one and installed it today with high hopes. Needless to say I was let down. After that disappointment I thought the only other logical thing to do was to see if the fuel pump even worked. Hot wired the fuel pump and it started right up. Now I knew it was the relay so I ran to autozone and grabbed a temporary relay. Installed it and she ran perfect.

      At that point it was to test out this new air suspension and drive the crap out of it. And that I did.

      Took a couple photos along the way with plenty more to come.

              Wooooo updates!

              So I finished my spring semester and it feels really good to be home for summer. Had a couple chill days and caught up with some friends but tonight I got to spend a little time the bimmer.

              First thing first was to look at all my new parts.



              Last time I was home the temp gauge decided to stop working which is a problem considering I don't have the fan working yet (that will be solved monday). Anyways, after looking around online I figured it was the ground wire in the gauge cluster and surprisingly it actually was.



              Speaking of new parts, I've had my m3 harness cover sitting in the box brand new for a while so I figured it was time to put it on. Had to do the usual trimming and then a little more since I raised the engine up a little. Eventually got it right and it was the usual PITA but it looks nice so it was worth it.



              And last, I mocked up the is front lip. I thought it would be a great idea to buy a late model front valence from an mtech car because who doesn't want mteck parts right? Well apparently it's different than a normal front valence so the lip doesn't just simply click in. At that point I decided to call it a night and I shall tackle that tomorrow.



              Starting to get crunch time on finishing (ha finishing...) the car. It has to be done/aka presentable and driveable by thursday for the treck down to Georgia for sowo.

                        Well, I finished the car in time for sowo exactly 5 hours before we had to leave. I was pretty nervous driving down without having any time to break her on but she ran fine and I made it there and back without any problems.

                        I had to wet sand and buff the hood, finish my trunk set up, paint the fog light delete covers and brake ducts, install rear window lock strip, and get my fan working. I ordered the sensor that goes on the radiator for the fan over a week before I left and for some reason it never came in so I had to wire a manual switch for the fan. No big deal but it was quite frustrating when parts are over 5 days late.

                        Don't really have any "build" pictures but here is the finished product for now.

                              Sorry for the lack of updates. I honestly haven't done anything else to the car I've just been driving around and enjoying it. I've also been working on something really big that I will give you guys an update about later this week.

                              In the meantime, here is another pic.

                                yes the breater hose connection near the throttle body is the biggest PITA!
