    Whoa, nice update! Lots of good work being done here, and congrats on the new acquisition.

    What is the consensus regarding replacing fuel hoses/lines that connect with the fuel tank? Is that something you'll do "while you're in there" since you have the fuel tank out?

    Damn, lots of nice parts - I can imagine the car being worth its price for the supercharger and strut brace alone!

    Thanks! I've had the gas tank in and out of several E46s and while it won't hurt to replace them I never have.

    Thanks! Yeah, the parts on the car are worth more than it for sure.


    I got the strut brace off and just did a light cleaning/polish to bring back some shine to it.

    I know absolutely nothing about audio but this is currently installed. AUX does not work so I haven't tested it.

    My suspicion of loose spark plugs appears to have been right so far as when I took them out only a couple required the use of a ratchet. I didn't have new ones so I put the old ones back and properly torqued them. No more noise thus far.

    I had an extra new coolant cap in my mini parts department so I replaced that as well.
