Differential oil change. Got messy and freezing cold, but got it done.

installed the HID kit, 55w 8000K. A little bit turquoise/blue but not so much colour it looks like form over function. Well worth the money, the standard Hella lights were WEAK, even with high-output bulbs. Now I can see all the road markings properly and I don't get blinded for half a second every time someone drives towards me because my pupils aren't so dilated from staring into near-total darkness. Brilliant. Night driving is gonna be much more fun from now on!

When the wallet recovers I'm probably gonna change the actual headlamp units for Depos and get some Angels on there as well.

Welded the rearmost exhaust hanger back to the body. Adjusted the stromung some more to get me by until I can afford to have a new pipe bent up for it and a resonator installed.

The aluminum stock I ordered arrived today, so tomorrow I will make it into spacers and then install said spacers friday

fixed the header... and made and installed the spacers, took the car to the carwash

I think its Stainless Steel. Not sure though.

Gave my Ti and the mini a good detail. Cleaned the interior and did some exhaust clean up. But since I just started to snow a little bit I have a feeling its going to get salty again

Bought some tires for the Mini for next track season. And looking at some Tis just for sh!ts and giggles on craigslist.

Flew to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania from Dallas, Texas just before Christmas to buy a Morea Grun Metallic 98 ti I found on autotrader. Drove it back home. Love the car; had a great time on the trip back; saw the beautiful Midwest. Joined the forum when I got back. Installed a set of oem floormats from Tischer. Parts are on the way from Pelican parts replace all driveline fluids, water pump, thermostat, power steering reservoir, and do a tune up. I've had a 97 Z3 2.8 for three years, and I've come to understand that with BMW's an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Bringing my baby today to get its thermostat replaced. She shivers . Oh and what's the average cost on parts (including coolant, housing, & factory thermostat)? Right now i'm looking at $113 CDN.

Scrapped the ice off the Ti! Where is a good place to get the hood and hatch shocks/struts? I found a bunch of Ebay but none as cheap as $17!
