    The Rack Doctor. He included inner and outer tie rods all for $239 or so shipped. I just sent back my core just to get the lifetime warranty (and it was a leaking rack so no value).

    Shipped my headers out to get coated last week. I can't wait!

    Mounted my winter storage wheels/tires. Now I don’t have to keep rolling the car back and forth to prevent flat spots.

    Got the 2003 E39 530i (130k miles) back together & started! I think my problem began as a leaky power steering system that caused the serpentine belt to slip/shred, resulting in the water pump/power steering pump/alternator to stop turning, and the radiator tank connection at the upper hose burst.

    I'm probably forgetting something, but over the past few weekends ended up replacing the following. Most parts were purchased from FCP Euro in four shipments - no crushed, damaged or loose parts or boxes, and quick free delivery in 2-4 days to VA:

    radiator, expansion tank, temp & level sensor/sender
    coolant & heater hoses & pipes
    water pump & thermostat
    power steering reservoir & hoses
    valve cover & intake gaskets
    oil filter housing gasket
    Vanos oil line
    fuel injector & air distribution piece O-rings
    vacuum plugs
    CCV valve & hoses
    belts, pulleys & tensioners
    spark plugs
    SAP vacuum lines
    fuel lines
    intake boots & F-pipe
    oil change & brake fluid flush
    air & microfilters

    I ended up with two leftover U-shaped metal clips. I believe they may go on the passenger's side of the valve cover to hold the SAP system vacuum line & cylindrical connectors in place, but don't remember exactly! Realoem says there are three of them. Does anyone have a photo or description of where they reside? I started another thread on this in the Maintenance section, but this thread seems to get more views: http://www.zhpmafia.com/forums/showthread.php?22718

    The holders are #10 in this diagram:





    EDIT: Thanks to Vas, I found them - on the fuel rail to hold the oxygen sensor connectors in place. They are oriented vertically in small cutouts.

    I heard about this thing that you drive onto, and it helps to evenly distribute the weight of the car onto the tire to prevent flat spots. Not sure what it is called or even what it looks like haha

    Tire Cradles or Flatstoppers are two options.

    I’m in Vermont, and I’ve always just inflated my tires to max pressure and rolled the car a bit every week or so without any issues.
