    Replaced the windshield on my 2011 X3 with Safelite. They charged $495 as compared to $1,500 at the dealer. I'm very happy with the results. Safelite installed a Pilkington.

    I only have one complaint: the driver's seat got some black stuff on it during the install. It was easy to clean, but I didn't notice until I sat on it.

    My ZHP had not been running poorly nor suffering power loss. Occasionally on cold mornings when allowed to idle for more than 5 minutes an error message would pop up (this happened twice over 18 months). I'd clear it and it would be months before it happened again. This got me to thinking about new intake boots and with thinking about replacing the intake boots, it logically led to rebuilding the DISA (125,400 miles) at the same time.

    Today I did repeated acceleration pulls getting onto the local interstate and was surprised how smooth the engine transitioned across the rpm ranges. What I thought was smooth before has been replaced with a turbine kind of smooth with the new DISA and boots. The idle is a wee bit smoother, too.
    Did your DISA hold a vacuum before the rebuild? I ask because I replaced my DISA o-ring with the GAS product, but have never changed any of the internals. It seems to hold a vacuum well and Iím not hearing a rattle, but it is the original as far as I know, so sometimes I wonderÖ

    I installed a 13th Gen TCU module into my ZHP this afternoon. The 13th Gen TCU module is the latest Gen TCU module you can install into an E46. Even though I am using BlueBus and using hands free communication thru BlueBus, if I ever decide to change out my head unit for an Avin head unit like what Botond has in his ZHP, I will end up losing BlueBus altogether as it is not compatible with the Avin head unit and I will have to reconnect the TCU module and I would rather use the most current TCU module since it will support Bluetooth hands free communication whereas the 6th Gen TCU module my ZHP was equipped with from the factory will not. It is nice to have options...

    Test drove an E90 M3. Took it to a shop for a PPI. Took it back to the shop that fix a deer impact because they did a crappy job the first time around and they committed to making it right whether the current owner or I bring it in. Will be negotiating tonight.

    I cannot answer your question regarding DISA and vacuum holding aspect. No vacuum testing, only an assumption it would be a good idea to replace intake boot components and rebuild the DISA at the same time.

    Hey family, I haven't been checking in here for quite some time. I see a lot of great posts.
    Few days ago I had a pleasure of meeting in person one member and exploring his amazing BMW shop. I am talking about George at Hill Performance Bimmers. What a place! The amount of cool projects, M3 swapped wagons and sheer amout of great job that George is doing is simply astonishing! I spent few hours in this place and it was amazing experience. Sorry George for destructing you from work-)) It was a pleasure of meeting you and spend time at your place.
    Below is some pictures of cool bimmers. Please ignore that huge bus from Stuttgart.
