Very nice guy, he promptly answered all my questions. We had chance to talk about his cars (e46 touring, M3, ZHP, among others).

    In summary: I'm very happy with this visit. Many thanks, George !

    I appreciate the kind words Fredo, thanks for giving me the opportunity.

    Oli, yes. What you are looking at there is the spark plug and injector well for cyl #1 & #2. The small circle is the top of the injector and the large 'T' is the hold down bracket. The electrical connection is hard to see off to the side at the 7-8 o'clock location.

    So far, no walnut blast. George, do you have comments about the intake manifold ?

    Washed the car and adjusted the equalizer settings. I followed a guideline from the F30 forum, very happy with the results. Next on my list, update the NAV maps to 2019.

    This Memorial Day weekend sets 2 years of F30 ownership. The odometer passed 86k miles today, that's almost 10k miles after my purchase. I can see a suspension refresh in the near future. Besides that, the car runs great.
