    I have working knowledge of the whole coding process with NCS etc. That said, if anyone near chicago wants any settings changed feel free to hit me up. I've done the front control arms and vanos, but I wouldn't say I'm particularly good at it

    Hopefully, if I can convince myself that a random orbital is a worthwhile investment, I'll be a detailing expert by the end of the summer!

    I'm fairly new to the E46 but have plenty of experience with BMWs. I have no issues diving into a cooling system rebuild or brakes I'll even do a clutch. VANOS systems are something I haven't gotten into yet but I'm not afraid to. In fact, its one thing that I want to do. I would say I'm about a medium experienced mechanic with the want and capacity to learn.

    Sounds like we've got a good list of capable people on the forum. Awesome.

    Like most I'd be comfortable working under the hood and replacing suspension parts. I have no experience with reprogramming or exhausts. Exhausts is something I'd like to learn.

    I've DIY'd nearly all mods on my car, including paint prep and spraying primer (I left the actual color spraying to the pro). I learned a lot about paint and would feel comfortable doing chip touch ups and prepping another car for paint. And I can spray bomb anything, wheels, trim, ect.

    I also love detailing my car, and have tried a variety of products (nearly anything you buy at the local automotive store). Eagle one wash, and quick detailer are the great. Meguiars clay bar is awesome. And anything Zaino (with hand polishing, and available online only) is amazing. Still trying products, but that's what I've got so far.

    Please visit my build page here, on CarDomain.

    Wow, lots of skill in the family!

    I feel confident about looking into any DIY that comes my way, but here's what I've done so far:
    • basic maintenance (oil, filters, bulbs, wipers, wheel swap/rotation)
    • brake pads, rotors, sensors (not so good with bleeding yet . . . )
    • CDV delete
    • "plug-&-play" mods/retrofits: HomeLink, OEM Bluetooth, DIY aux-in & aux power

    I consider myself considerably competent with computer hardware & software; I plan to translate that into DIY ECU diagnostics & coding.

    I'm a little shy with anything engine internals & suspension-related (i.e. VANOS, DISA, LCAB, etc.) but hope to change that!

    Unless you are doing the pipe bending and self fitting, exhaust is simple. The guys who do custom work with bending and welding have mad skills. I've seen a good exhaust man 'eyeball' an entire dual exhaust system on a pick-up before. That was cool.
