    By the way, 195/60R14 tires anyone? Almost brand new!
    what brand/model of tire?

      Same, I have coolant refresh parts, interior peices, and my wheels. It's ridiculous.

            Yep and a long drive, but what else should German's think when we have shows like ugly fat little spoiled girl, and all the reality/lazy programming we have

            I wonder what a refreshed G260 with new(ish) clutch/pressure plate/starter, shaved m20 flywheel, white325is trans brace, 10 degree twist dssr, 2 325i drivelines and a S3.73 diff is worth?
            I bet you could trade it for a certain blue 318

                Dinan 8 Automatic just got some brand new Dinan Wheels and tires.

                Threw a pretty stock, but very clean 850i into the mix for some contrast. They JUST don't make them like they used to, do they?

Stock though. My 260 has about 500k on it with no rebuild and is noisy as fuck in every gear but still shifts very nice and takes the abuse i give it like a champ.
                    My thoughts exactly, but I would just buy all new detents so I wouldn't have that issue. And, yes, we all know how you drive ;)

                      Alpinas will wait till around March - I have snow tires on since I go to Stevens almost every weekend. I think she's ok with it for now. She didn't like it when I had the diff (3.73S) on the living room floor. Had to move it to her parents' garage.

                      The tires are all season Landsail LS688 rated 86H (Chinese brand). I got 'em for bottlecaps right after I bought the car and drove less than 500 miles on them. The only reason I got these tires were the price - got 'em for $200 with mount/balance. Selling for $120 OBO.

                        Aaand I finally installed the fog lights. Thanks to Paolo (he got me the installation hardware) bolting them on wasn't an issue. Took a while to find the switch harness under the dash. I had to take off the foam thing, silver box (Bosch) and orange box (Siemens, I think it's airbag controller) and then it was pretty clear.

                        The passenger side fog light doesn't light up even though there is voltage on the plug. Going to buy a new bulb and see if it helps.

                          Yep sounds like a bulb

                          Silver box is ABS and you are correct on the airbag
