This is what I did yesterday

I got caught out in the storm today in Philly. Tried to enjoy the car before the weather came to no avail. It was bone dry when I left out at 10am and the snow wasn't supposed to arrive 'til 3pm. WRONG!!!!! My wife texts me at noon to say it started already. Ok I said. Then I'm watching the Eagles game at the gym in "white out" conditions and I'm like "oh shit." 2 hours later and 3 or 4 spin outs into oncoming traffic as well as getting stuck at least 3 times, I finally got home!! Scariest driving conditions I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. I have one very small scratch on the rear bumper as a result that can be detailed out. Thank god. Let's just say I saw the late John Candy in that Devil suit from Plains Trains and Automobiles sitting next to me many times this afternoon. It was not pleasant. Lesson learned.

This is definitely a mod I want to do soon. How long did it take for you to install the braces?

ill modify this to "what did you do to your M today"?

changed the oil tonight after work. not bad, the drain plugs being a hex was a little strange. first car that ive owned that had two oil reservoirs to drain.

now she is almost ready to roll for the track in a couple weeks! spark plugs on Thursday, but not going to try to tackle that job myself because of the difficulty with cylinder 8..

Changed my wheels to the winter setup. Changed the oil with Pennzoil Ultra 5w-40 Euro and added 540 ml of Liqui Moly Cetatec. Good timing as the temps are hovering below zero here in CO these days. Send an oil sample of the used TWS to blackstone for analysis.

The M3 is a blast to drive in the snow!

This is an easy install. I had never done it before so I took my time and it still only took 30 minutes, maybe less. It is very straight forward and Dinan provides detailed instructions.

Drove to Nancy France and had eclairs, to Saarbrucken Germany for gluhwein and headed to Nuremburg for the Christmas market next weekend. Great fun!

Thought I would share a little taste of Bavaria. I'm deployed in Stuttgart ( I know, tuff deployment) but my M3 is back State side cozy in my garage. My 2013 rental 320id isn't bad though. lol! Hit up the BMW museum and paid a little visit to where I picked up my M3 in 2008.

I had a local shop, Lab22, make some changes to aid in the Prius-level of noise that our cars make from the factory, haha. I was able to snag this footage of the muffler box as it was modified and installed on my E92 yesterday.

I know I should be ashamed because I should have just gone for broke @ 200mph but I'm a big puss!

I'm driving through Death Valley on Friday on my way to the track so I'll have another chance

I ordered the BMW electronic steering wheel. I am going to see if a local auto upholstery guy can do the m stitching on it prior to install. I will post photos if it happens. Merry Christmas to me!

I've never really done a top end run. Fastest I've seen is 140.6 at the track so far. Lap after lap.
