I'd like to hardwire my Passport but the non-technical person in me is terrified of pulling panels and plugging wires!

Bedded my new pads a second time, installed a CG Lock, and gave her a quick bath and a quart of oil in preparation for her first day at the track on Tuesday!

The 660 was great, not a single sign of fade or boiling, pedal felt great the entire day.

From what I saw, a full flush required 2 bottles, with a bit left over that could be enough for clutch, but I have DCT so not sure.

Dinan makes their own machined aluminum center caps for these wheels - nice piece, with a unique retention system using an O-ring. Standard center caps will not work with this wheel.



Recess is 2mm deep with very thin wall for centering BMW cap.

Thanks ive read this and that on 600 vs 660. 600 has a higher wet boiling point and 660 has a higher dry boiling point so who knows whats better? Ha. Yeah the castrol ill store and eventually get a second bottle for the next flush. Found a local motorcycle shop that has motul for $20 so will go with those for now. Good to know pedal feel was consistent = did not boil. Mine (brake and clutch pedal) unfortunately with the stock brake fluid has become mushy and needs to be replaced this week. Thanks for the input. How was the track? This car is awesome.
