    From what I can looked up, yes. I suspect all three rims can take a beating at Laguna Seca. They are invincible but I wouldn't except damage with normal Gran Turismo lines

    This car is not a peach. It is a precision instrument, and will be used as such.

    ## The Power steering spill problem
    This was a problem with during my E46 days. During heavy cornering at track days, the power steering ventilation port in the cap would spill fluid everywhere. On the M54 in my old E46, this would just mean all over the stock intake cover. Easy peasy. In our cars, this meant the whole passenger side was covered in fluid. What a mess to clean up! I still haven't fully cleaned up everything yet..

    How do we prevent spilling?
    1. Bimmerworld PS Reservoir $164.99 (out of stock)
    2. 3D Design PS Attachment $395!!!!
    3. Kaiv's awesome cheap method with BMW Motorcycle Brake cylinder $40


    Being the 'thrifty' person I am, I went with the cheap kaiv method. Thank you for sharing this awesome workaround!

    Parts List
    • BMW F650GS Rear Brake master cylinder | Part # 34 21 7 706 055
    • 5/32" 90 Degree connector
    • 5/32" Vacuum tube
    • M6 10mm bolt








    The end result is a nice clean setup. Since the PS is designed to vent, I'm thinking about drilling a hole in the cap to allow for that.


    Hopefully, this solves the issue!

    Damn that's a great workaround. You could certainly drill a hole in the cap to be safe, but it may be alright as-is with that volume of air being able to compress.

    I'd drill it though. Not like it's gonna slosh out of the remote reservoir.

    Edit: found some hella cheap universal options on the bay

    I'm thinking I'll pick one up, drill a hole in the top, and shove some foam in it to dampen any spray

    Yea its a good idea! It's kind of nice to have the BMW one for around $35 and isn't really much compared to the other options. You most likely can utilize the 10mm bolt near the shock tower by the air filter as your holding area on E46s. I believe that bolt is for the SMG reservoir.

    someone did that here :
