Used sylvania’s headlight restore kit. Hardest part was applying the clear coat. This is my second attempt, still not perfect but much better then before.

Stock is where it's at. I went to a major car show in Amsterdam recently and the best cars in my mind were the 100% stock ones.

The little mods I had over the years made the car look special, going back to complete original after 10y makes it look special all over again.... And again these car are becoming a bit of a classics.

Amsterdam for a car show seem long way from Canada, wow!

Replaced the battery...again. Changed two years ago, went cheap with 80Ah acid lead. Wanted Lithium but Antigravity local reseller wanted 18.900kr (1760USD today) which passed the limit even for my M3. So here we are with another 26Kg AGM.

Happily noticed a clean and dry battery box. While the drain hose was smashed. Ah well, shouldn't be needed with the AGM.

I happened to be in The Netherlands at the time (on vacation) and I always check for auto events before hand and try to take them in.

Hahaha, would have been just that in my case if it wouldn't for my helpful and significantly stronger son, damm that battery is heavy in the wrong lift angle!
