    2011 n55 with 98k miles and waiting for some kind of catastrophic failure lol

    Custom e30 tune by Twisted tuning. The car has been beaten on for most of it's life. It's seen a few hpde events and I take 5-10 4th gear pulls daily.

    Common failure items I've replaced so far:

    Oil gaskets
    Serpentine belt
    Water pump
    Coils/plugs
    Coolant expansion tank
    Oil cap
    Frozen tie rod
    Power steering rack (inner seal had been leaking since 60k)
    Transmission

    2011 e92 335i, 88k, I bought the car at 86k a few months back. Everything is clean, no oil seepage anywhere. I don't drive much during the week due to close distance work, and roughly 50-100 miles every weekend average. Currently tuned MHD stage 2 and xHP Flashtool stage 3 for trans.

    So far I did serpentine belt and pulleys, also spark plugs and coil packs (before tune). No misfire but was sort of rough idle at cold start before spark plugs and coil packs. Next up: Cleaning the vanos solenoids and transmission service DIY.

    Adding the pic...recently swapped the M Sport front and rear bumpers aka Chinese fitment. Front bumper was PITA. Came out ok, can't complain (too much). Fairly happy with the outcome.
