    Theyíre awful...my flexible extension isnít magnetic so I kept dropping sockets in the engine bay when tightening/loosening those band clamps. I ended up JB Welded an extra 6mm (or whatever size it is) socket to a flex extension, and now itís a dedicated tool.

    Finally hit a milestone, 100K miles, but it comes with a little story in my project thread.

    There are still vacuum leaks, which I know is going to be the CCV, which leads me to my next conundrum. Do I want to swap over the SULEV M56 Valve Cover and eliminate the CCV, or just replace it? I honestly don't know how much longer this engine will be in the car (pricing out M54B30s and S54s), probably only 1-2 years more.

    Brakes are still atrocious, front struts are basically dead, and the engine mounts are shot. On the bright side, I already have the 330i calipers and carriers sitting, just waiting for rotors and pads. Gotta replace the mechanical fan with an electric fan too...
    You took your intake boots off to get the disa off?!

    Started pricing together my long term S54 project. My wallet is cowering in fear in the corner.

    I've somehow angled mine so that I don't even need to remove the DISA to access them. Never lost a socket for it though...
