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
just getting tired of fixing it, but really wanna keep this car, will drive in the weekend instead of DD

anyways, very enjoy this headlight upgrade, worth the time and money I spend on it.

PS: I got two OEM headlights housing for sale, they were replaced and removed from this E90.

Drove down to test drive this RS4 since it's relatively local, different animal altogether - this one was a dog, wasn't looked after at all. the power on the RS4 is instant and the exhaust note is spectacular, handling isn't as good as the M3 but it's better than I thought it would be.

I just got a set and was dedicating this weekend to figuring out springs and spacers. Thank you for sharing this! I was recommended 20mm spacers for the rear and nothing up front. Can you guys comment on how flush you are all around and any rubbing?

Changed the oil (thank you QuickJack) and then was about to change the diff oil too (following 1300 miles of break in - got a new diff in March) when I realized I do not, in fact, have a 14mm allen socket. Doh!
No local auto store had one either so it'll have to wait until Amazon Prime comes through.

Some people run 15mm all around for the "square" setup. I would say the most common thing people do, myself included, is 15mm in the front and 12mm in the rear - that's with the ZCP 359m wheels. No issues, no rubbing, nice and flush, very aggressive.

Tucked it into a new shed, parked next to an E46 M3, covered it and put it on trickle charge.

Played golf yesterday, sun was out so I dropped the top on the way back - best way to experience the exhaust note by far, throwing it around some wooded country roads in 3rd and 4th, it's epic.

+1, took mine for a cruise topless. Top down, stereo off, and listen to the sweet tune of the engine. Let the E93 bashing begin! LOL........

Lol they don't know what they're missing, the handling is still extremely good with the same precise steering, the only difference is the exhaust note is ten times better. You gotta love the 'slab' look of the car with the top down 🤤

Amazon Prime FTW this morning. 14mm hex arrived and I got the diff done in an hour. All maintenance now up to date for a while.

Then had a nice test drive in the beautiful weather with windows and moonroof wide open. Ahhh....

PSA for the rest of the forum reading this: If you decide to DIY with many of the M3 fluids that use hex bit sockets, remember to 1) buy quality hex bit sockets as the size precision will matter and 2) when you go to break the hex bolts loose, get a strong wrench position with the bit socket firmly flat and flush into the hex bolt and apply immediate torque, i.e., don't ease into it.

Aluminum is soft and it is easy to strip the bolts if you don't apply good technique.
