    Rick, if you are doing it, I am bringing my NB up to your house and doing it right next to yours. I have been looking into this swap for a while and I have funds waiting to go.

    Yup. Car rolled 92xxx miles. I want to stay ahead of the maintenance because my wife drives it mostly.

    I bought a new set of torx bits. I replaced the idler pulley, serpentine belt last spring, but didn't know about the AC pulley until I got the belt off. Someone else had pulled the belt before. The torx bolt on the hydraulic tensioner was pretty chewed. I have a replacement for that too.

    Haven't updated this in forever! Been really busy lately. Graduated college, started my career, and moved out of on my own. Life got in the way of things.

    Over the summer, I had to get new front tires on the car. Discount Tire scratched the hell out of my BBS's. I have a picture somewhere, but can't seem to find them. Had a phone break and lost some pictures so it may be lost. Anyways, I have a really good friend that works there, but he wasn't able to work on my car, and it got damaged. He felt terrible, but I knew he would make it right. So they sent the wheel off for repair and if it didn't look right, they were going to order me a new one. Well, it came back totally the wrong color and the paint was garbage. Dirt in the paint with a ton of orange peel. It was bad! Only picture I can find of it at the moment:

    The driver side front is was way too silver and not enough nickel/charcoal or Diamond Black as BBS calls it. You can even see it with the Killboy watermark in the way!

    Ended up getting a new wheel and it was definitely shinier and nicer than the 3 wheels that have probably 120,000 miles on them, but its WAY closer than before. I'm happy with it. The average person would never see it, but I do.

    I've had RCR tail lights sitting in the garage for years now. I bought them from a member on here, but the trunk lights were too dirty for my liking and so I cracked them open to clean them. I noticed that the reflective surface had been worn out and it wasn't too my liking. So I got a set of trunk lights and swapped the lenses over.

    At the same time I put on some fresh new BMW roundels since the front and rear decided to fail at the same time! Here is a nice before/after on the rear.





    MUCH BETTER! The car also got a wash, clay, and wax between those photos! Wish I would have done that when I got these years ago! It makes the car look so much newer.

    Congrats!!!
    I've got a lot less horsepower - luckily they are Japanese horses - usually in better shape and more motivated.

    No better feeling than paying something off, especially a huge credit card debt, car or house!
