Today I hit 62,000 which means it was time for a 2,500 mile check up/oil change after rod bearing replacement. Everything looked good. Thanks to Malek@MRF for great service as always. Obligatory photos to follow.

Cleaned up my trunk a little concerning air lines and stuff. This is by no means the finished product...I plan on mounting the management system underneath the floor and adding another compressor to the opposite side of where the one is now. This should clean up the lines and give me a bit more space back.

I drove it for the first time in weeks on a long road trip. This car is good!

If this car isn't a future classic I don't know what is

Every time you open up an engine, regardless how clean and careful the shop is, you risk contaminants getting in, such as key and wrapper (too soon?). Doing an oil change shortly after will help flush out any contaminate and assembly oil out.

ASFAIK you have the only Frozen White car here in locally.

I know of a frozen black, grey and blue which are owned by friends and there's a frozen silver one on sale again

Can't wait to see a Frozen Red in person

On one of the rare days I was driving the Tahoe, I had an e92 M behind me in W-S, NC. I only have seen one or two a year.

after taking care of the issues, shouldn't you drive it more instead of storing it away?


i just spent $2000 in the past 2 weeks for maintenance
did the throttle actuator replacement with a friend
... but immediately afterwards, the ac compressor crapped out
had a shop take care of the ac compressor and the receiver drier filter thing

shop showed me the receiver drier ... it was looking pretty filthy
all clogged up so it causes back pressure on the ac compressor
that's what i was told
