    Had my indy shop code the battery in the DME (free).

    4 years and 18K miles later (its my daily to work unless it snows) it was time for new tires.

    Got staggered Michelin Pilot Sport 4S (all season) tires on a recommendation from a big chain guy ($1100).

    Will be installed and aligned this coming Monday.

    It's already cold here so I will switch to my winter set up right away.

    Got me one of these.

    Thought my car had had a new VANOS redesign.

    Must wait for the new bolts?

    72K miles, did oil and filter.

    Gonna need to change my plugs (overdue since 60K miles).
    And to change air and cabin filter when weather improves.

    74K miles, changed plugs. Had a scare, it ran on 5 cylinders when I started it, something was wrong.
    Took it apart, reseated all coils and plugs, and we had a smooth 6 cylinders engine sound in the garage.
    The exhaust sounded good with 5 cylinders, though, I won't lie.

    Was going to add a note that with the strut bar in the first pick above going STRAIGHT ABOVE the 5th cylinder from the front, it was not possible to get the plug straight on. I tried to remove the Torx bolt on top of the strut mount with one of those "universal" female thingy and that failed miserably. Just bought a female set (gonna need it to the OFHG).

    So, I had to add a swivel point at the right height, was a little touch and go for a minute, you know, when you don't have the exact tool for the job.

    Anyways, in case someone does plugs on the E93 chassis, with the extra frame support/stabilization (no roof), that tension bar is IN THE WAY. Not good on this engineering, BMW!

    all E9x cars have those braces. they are a real PITA, indeed - the worst part being that the other end is bolted at the firewall, under the massive cowl, so you need to remove the cabin filter, cowl, etc to get to it. i have koni yellows on my E91 and in order to adjust the dampers, i have to unbolt the outer brace bolt, lift it up, and juuuust squeeze the adjuster in there.

    the socket set you need is called "e torx" and most bolts are either E10 or E12 on the E9x.
