    wow, over 2 years since my last update! that is nuts. hope yall are doing well. nice to see the boards are still kicking!

    so, the car has been a nightmare over the past couple months. First, i was on a long country drive and my radiator blew somehow. which is crazy cause it was less than 15k miles old. but i was running high RPM's for a good stretch and i guess some clips on the coolant reservoir snapped and blew a hole in the radiator. at least that's what the shop told me. so between a new radiator, a system flush, i also added a brake flush that was overdue and an AC recharge since we are entering summer...nice little $1500 bill. and i've had to replace the thermostat twice under warranty cause they kept getting stuck closed and the car was overheating. fortunately that was only $100 or so for the initial part.

    then the car kept overheating! so i took it back to the shop, figuring it was thermostat related. they asked if my water pump was original, i said no it's an upgraded Stewart piece that should be a lifetime part. so they flushed the cooling system 5 times and let it run for a few hours, and miraculously the overheating just stopped, and hasn't been an issue since (fingers crossed).

    next up, i started noticing significant oil loss and leakage. turns out the valve cover was pretty badly warped. so a new VC +VCG and associated labor was another $1k or so.

    got the car back yesterday from the VC repairs, desperately hoping the car stays trouble free for the forseeable future. i'm also hoping the new valve cover and gasket will help with the standard common oil consumption i was having before all these other issues came up.

    besides all that, not really any new fun/mod updates. oh i got all weather floormats lol. and i bought a new C pillar cause it is peeling, but haven't installed yet. and i finally sold my M3 side mirrors that i kept from my old coupe. i was gonna get them resprayed oxford and do the sedan baseplate mod, but priorities shifted. current mileage is approx 183,5xx.
