    Its more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow.

    Not that the E46 M3 is slow by any means, but you get what Im saying.

    Took the car back to Discount Tire due to getting vibrations after having the tires rotated and balanced. Apparently, balanced does not mean what I thought it meant as one of the tires was a 1/4 of an ounce off. Drove it today to work and did not have any issues.

    Ordered new idler/tension pulleys today. My current ones are less than a year old buuuuuut a teeny coolant leak had been assaulting them for months. Fixed the leak and just decided to replace the pulleys. Thankfully, all of the other pulleys checked out ok.

    Pulled the old idler and tensioner pulleys. Removed the gaskets, cleaned em out, and repacked them. Not a permanent fix but it should tide me over until Monday when the new parts get here.

    Dropped my 135m rims off to get straightened, powder coated, and to have a new set of Michelin AS/3+ tires mounted. I am going with a powder coat color that is as close to the original BMW silver of the E46 era as possible. I had the same place refurbish the 19" 225m rims for my X1 in a gloss black powder coat a few weeks ago and the came out great. Will post pictures when I pick them up next week.
