The driveshaft U Joints are the prob. In 1st or 2nd anytime the front shaft quickly spins at a diff rate than the rear shaft. For example starting off after stopped. Driving in 1st then suddenly letting off the gas. Itís not random so You can tell itís not the dust shield cowbell. Iím actually replacing a front bearing very soon too

Swapped yet another set of OEM kidney grilss This time, they have black slats and chrome surrounds (OEM M3 type) whereas I had just swapped in the all chrome non-M version. I am definitely liking these better.

Looks so good. Is that an AJM Motorsports front lip?

12517847971 is the revised connector with pigtails with crimp fittings. I didn't even know about it, but a fellow E9Xer I met at the track informed me when my car went into limp mode for a coolant temp sensor code.

Have a code for the Idle Control Valve, car runs fine other than the first km on fuel up, and even then it's only when I'm stopping does the RPM go up and down slightly.

Going to do 50% on all side windows and 40% on rear. Just want it for heat rejection as I like the look of the car. Personally choice. Plus, I hope to avoid tickets!!!

What are you guys going with for tint %?

I'd go with a slightly lighter tint. Especially if you're driving through towns that have their own PD. RCMP is pretty lenient but to an extent.
