    I have to admit, this trip really endured me to this car. Makes me want to fix it up, give it some style.

    New front brakes and rotors for the 'bär. Brakes are a breeze on these cars.

    No more shudder under braking now.

    Also changed the air filter and rotated the tires.

    Oil filter housing gasket. Goddamn. Not sure the new one sealed right. What a stupid design.

    'k, think it sealed right, just needs a few heat cycles to fill out the channels. I never knew the metal undertray was shiny silver, so much damn oil caked on. I think it's alright for my wife's upcoming road trip.

    Schwarzbär

    96k on the clock. Time for spark plugs. Records don't indicate they were changed, and are recommended at 100k. Prayed to Cthulhu that they weren't seized or broke off upon removal. They did not, but were pretty stout to remove.


    Revmove cabin filter box at firewall ( to access the last two cylinders)




    Remove engine covers.


    Pop out the coils one at a time. Soooo much easier than in an e36.


    Yup. Original factory plugs. Not too bad.


    NGK Iridiums. Gapped to spec.


    Checked wells for oil and debris. I have a VC gasket on desk just in case.




    Time to finish up. This all has to go back in. Blu looks on approvingly.


    Washed the cabin filter box.

    Finished up by washing car, it's filthy.
