      So are you saying they charge more than the dealership? Or just saying they want the vehicle to be in mint condition? I'm good with Mint condition because its the other halfs vehicle and you know I hear about anything that is off or wrong! I don't enjoy feeling ripped off though.

      Simple example of an oil change. Normally I do all changes on our vehicles but anymore the dealer charges about $90 a change. I can't even order an oil change kit off ECS for less than $105 + Shipping. Now that the dealer is 10 min away its basically a no brainer to drop it with them.

      I did call and talk to Mike and he seemed pretty knowledgeable right off the bat and talked me through their process over at Bimmer Rescue. Probably call back tomorrow and line something up for the following week with them and see how it goes. Never used an indy shop before. See if they can also fix the terrible balance job on a new set of tires the dealership put on.

      I just mean that I used to send clients etc to them who didn't know about cars. They would go over the car and find every single possible thing wrong and put it on an invoice. They weren't telling them that none of it was mandatory or a threat to the vehicle's safety/longevity etc. But for a regular person, they might assume all that stuff needs to be done. I even tried to tell the owner not to do that to people I sent over but he continued so I stopped sending them. Patrick is a great guy and they have a great new shop. I refer people in the know to them but not people who are uninformed. But since my buddy Clay started working with Thayer, I have been sending people there because it seems like the labor charge is lower. I have never verified that though. I use Import Autohaus personally simply because it's close for me and they know me so they never try to take advantage. In fact, most bills come in slightly under quote. If Thayer/Bimmer Rescue/Delta V were closer, they would be my go to. I used Import to do all the X5 work, Delta V did cam seals and timing belt on the R and Thayer built the diff in my M7 as well as the BBK install on my old LSx 427 E39 touring. I have a 4 post lift and do a lot of my own work but ever since my son was born, I let shops do the stuff I just don't feel like messing with

      Just make sure you prep the console well. Wash it really good and wipe down with some alcohol etc. The SEM stuff says it has plastic adhesion promoter built in but I still sprayed some first.

      Thanks....I ordered the adhesion promoter as well. I also plan on cleaning with Dawn and then wiping down with 3M Plastic Prep

      No problem. I just realized I've just passed the 5 year anniversary of having the R 2nd longest I've ever owned a car.

      Wow... really? I'm on my eighth in 35 years of driving, but the first three were Chevy, and lasted about a year to a year and a half each. Had the Toyota for 10+. Damn - did I just count 35 years?!?

      If it were me with an '04 auto VR that still pulls family duty, I'd do a hybrid wheel, FMIC, 3" down pipe, 3" exhaust, tune removing torque limiting, then solid delrin subframe mounts front and rear, refresh all bushings with poly in the front LCA position, sways, and coilover sleeves over the 4C shocks (though if this doesn't work out I will dump 4C). I'd also refresh all fluids including ATF.

      In fact that is the basic plan for my '05 which is intended to be a fun family driver. I have not kept track lately but up to about 2-3 years ago no one had experienced AW55 failure due to removal of torque limiting, and most people say it transforms the car. Same comments regarding sway bars, though I can only go by comments as mine wait in the garage. YMMV. I'd like to fully sound insulate mine too, but I'm backed up enough as it is right now so who knows if I will ever get to it (or the hybrid wheel for that matter). Not after any specific power goal personally, just looking for the low hanging fruit without killing reliability.



      On my prior R (2007 S60R automatic) I had full poly LCA's, poly subframe inserts, TME springs with height sensors set to read right in the middle of the range at the new ride height, then SUM calibration with rear weighed down 1/2" lower (this took the edge off the harshness). Had a 3" downpipe but never got around tuning it before selling it. I liked the firmer TME's, but they were still too soft IMO hence my desire for coilover sleeves, so I can pick specific rates and play around with it. And based on how the subframe bushing inserts felt and improved things, I decided to go with delrin this time around, I just have to find some time to install the spare subframe I installed them in.

      No problem, but keep in mind much of that stuff I haven't actually done yet, just my plans. Don't follow the blind man...

      I actually forgot to mention one thing, I'd also look into a DIY 'shift kit' for the AW55; I'm not aware it ever being done on an R but I've seen guys with other cars replace the accumulator springs with an aluminum sleeve. This should quicken the shift and reduce the apply time of the clutch packs in the trans, should reduce heat & wear. I wish I tried this on the 5HP I rebuilt in my 7, but just the rebuild took long enough.

      Understood. Interesting on the trans.

      I'm not sure I want to go poly or delrin on the bushings. In the past I have regretted that on other cars. But I know the R is a different animal altogether in regards to suspension.

      In searching my parts cabinet, I found new OE rear bushings and front Powerflex purple bushings along with new OE ball joints for the front control arms. So I should probably save money and go buy a press for the garage instead of paying a shop or buying new complete arms.

      It also looks like the rear lower arms don't wear and instead there is a toe link with two bushings. I assume that's the one to replace. What about the upper arm with the bump stop?

      You can do the front LCA bushings with a vise. I actually just clamped the center pin of the front bushing with the vise & turned the LCA until the pin tore out. If your bushings don't come with the metal sleeve you can scrape with a chisel then wire brush, or if they have sleeves just collapse them with a chisel and remove.

      ball joints are in the knuckles and come out/go back in pretty easy with an air hammer.

      While youre in there I'd recommend checking your tie rods and end links.

      Thanks for the tips. Don't have an air hammer but should. I'll take a trip to Northern this weekend and might get a press anyway. Always wanted one. Did tie rods and end links not too long ago.

      My front arm power flex bushings are just the bushings. Do I remove the front mount pin from the stock bushing and re-use it? If so, I may just get a complete bushing instead. I don't see the rear toe link with the two bushings on FCP so perhaps they just sell the bushings individually and you re-use the short aluminum housing? Also, when I replace the rear 4c's, is it wise to also replace the upper mounts? In photos, I can't see any rubber so seems silly to replace if just aluminum. But I would imagine there is a rubber mount and if so, I would absolutely replace while doing the shocks. I am basically looking to replace all the main wearable bushings/ball joints etc front and rear and want to order all parts tomorrow.

      There are rubber spring seats, strut top bearings up there. I knew the spring seats were toast on my car, and I just went ahead and ordered the bearings too.

      Based on how long cars live with you this may not matter but FCP has a lifetime warranty, on everything.. I like to go with OE suppliers from them, and they package kits too. Heres one, I'm not recommonding ( nor not not recommending...) this one, just fyi and to link you to the site:

      https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/vol...FUM2gQodsZYPoA

      Btw, they have complete bushings, but reusing the pin and sleeve with what you have isn't a big deal if you will have a press, but of course your call.

      Yeah, I order most of my parts from them since I have had so many BMW's. I did the entire front strut assembly and am ready to tackle the rear so I want to make sure I do all the "while in there" stuff.

      Sorry, I'm a dufus, I read right over you stating your doing the rear.

      There is a spring seat that my OCD would force me to change if I was doing a refresh but I dont believe its problematic like the fronts (since the fronts hold the upper shock mount, the rears dont).

      Other than changing springs and tweaking the height sensors (by bending the rods) I haven't yet had the pleasure of redoing anything in the rear suspension, hopefully someone who has will chime in.

      Hadn't read about bending the rods. Wish I wasn't blocked from this site at work. Too hard to research on the phone and I spend most of home time doing other stuff. Just happens to be raining today.. so much to learn now that I've decided to finally go a little nuts on the VR..

      The other auto projects that I work on. Wifeymobile is the 03 X5 4.6is and my usual DD is the 70k mile 95 Nissan D21 but I have an internal oil problem and it's been parked on my lift for a few months while I try and source parts for an engine rebuild. I have done an 87 Nissan pathfinder front end conversion, Bilstein HD shocks, light bar and modified to fit Toyota specific aftermarket wheels.

      To be clear I only bent the rods so that the sensors would be in the middle of the range at the final ride height, determined using VIDA& a chinese knockoff DICE unit.

      You certainly have a knack for flipping cars. I thought I've had a lot; I'm 41 and have only had ~20, 22 counting the cars I bought Mrs 377Z, though when I add them up I seem to leave some out and past a certain point I'm not sure of the sequence as many tenures with me overlap.

      Since I cold turkeyed bimmerforums I lost track of your escapades too, last I remember you had a Toyota 4X and the green 510.

      PS I too hate searching on a phone, perhaps you could tether in via a tablet, at least over lunch or something. So much easier on a tablet.

      Seems like the Elevate springs are pretty good for lowering the car a tad and not being harsh. Anyone with experience who can confirm?

      That's a good looking Nissan (for a Nissan)! Didn't know there was a mod to do that face change. I guess if adam_nonnis can combine an R and an XC, Nissan pathfinders and pickups can be combined too. I've a bit of a hankering for a clean 'Yota like I had back in the day.

      I gotta go back and look at your list. 86?
      Super looking. Really gorgeous. When you're in D.C. (If ever), let's meet up.

      Bought a 20 ton press and cleaned the garage. Ready to tackle the front control arms.

      Haha

      I've been looking at Elevate tuning products on fcp. Leaning towards intake, downpipe, exhaust and tuning. Still undecided on springs but leaning towards Elevate on those as well. Any feedback?
