The Monday after the drive, the Samsco hoses arrived. I hope that these will help keep the car running cool for years to come.
Saturday 9/1/2012 I was finally was able to install one of the major parts on the M3. My fiancÚs father works for a Porsche/Subaru shop so I was able to get access to a lift so I could install the steering rack. I combined it with two oil changes as well. Might as well make the most of having a lift right. Wife drove the 1M to the shop on a nice Saturday AM drive there.
