Put the track wheels on, took out all the excess weight I can legally take out and gave it a quick wash.

All in all, it was about 1.5 hours, but if you ask my parents, it was "all damn day."

Got up at 7:30, washed it and cleaned it out, and headed a couple hours north to meet up with the Allegheny Chapter BMWCCA for the annual Fall Leaves luncheon.

I drove it with the motor sitting on the subframe since UPS said my motor mounts came in and they never showed up.

i took mine to get a new cat and resonator delete done at a local exhast shop.

Also played with the wiring on my subwoofers and got my trunk cleaned up and re-stored my gun case nicely in the trunk.

Remembered I really should cancel the insurance on a car whose registration has expired. I never did take it through emissions.

I drove it 45 miles with the wife and 2 kids to get my drivers license renewed. Then went shopping for different stuff all day and drove it home. I did pour a 3000 mile injector cleaner into the tank though. And I picked up my 'winter' oil while shopping, I will probably change that tomorrow.

I drove it...something feels off. Confused
I had that happen once. Turned out my zipper was down! :oops:

But seriously, I've had that feeling and it is always right. You will find it in a day or so, hope it's minor.

Replace the driver's side B pillar cover with the good one out of the euro I just picked up.

Pulled the front cloth manual seats out of the euro donor, hoping to get them cleaned up and put in my son's ex-car tomorrow.

Replaced my drivers seatbelt receptacle and replaced my spark plugs from Denso garbage the PO had in there and put the Bosch OE plugs back in. Great difference!

My 535is had Densos in it, too! They were spec'd for a Corolla.

It's something in the front steering components. New ones will be in soon. :evil:

I am about to finish replacing the center link and idler arm on BB Shiftless . I had a few adventures with 22yr old parts, but the tie rod ends, etc are fine for now. I need to get the car re-inspected ASAP. I have no qualms about going back under later on. Beating on E-28s is a lot easier than other cars.

Nothing. Got the relay issues sorted the other night and then dropped it off at its secure, undisclosed location. I was tempted to clean it, but I wasted enough time on the car and it wasn't really even dirty, just a bit dusty, so I left it.

Packed it full of small and delicate item during a move into my new house.
Damn I miss having that company mini van sometimes.
