I replaced the outer right window weatherstripping at the bottom of the window. The little tail that glues to the back edge of the door had split completely in two from the main strip.

Changed the oil and plugs. Then I cleaned the engine bay a bit.

Default New brakes at last

I found a new E36 328i vented rotor, calipers with new pads and all assembled on hub with new bearings for $100. (US $70 ish) for both sides... Lucky!!!!! So went at my hub today. Both sides took 3 hours in total (have yet to bleed 'em) but without much trouble the old hub was removed and the new bolted in place. An easy conversion. I have a bit to do this week. New brake fluid, A set of Nexen SUR4's for the 17s and a track day next Saturday to look forward to!

New stock rotors and Akebono ceramic pads. I was going to go vented rotors, calipers, and carriers - my old front rotors were warped so that the steering wheel shuddered when braking hard. But I found Brembo solid rotors on Amazon's warehouse deals for $10 each, so I went with those. Brakes straight and smooth now.

Did an overdue oil change this past weekend. Also removed the intake "baffle" from the airbox. I also tried to do a compression check (FAIL) and to look inside the bore where it ate a plug (FAIL).

I have three compression testers and they all suck. To be fair, they are at least 20 years old; probably closer to 60. Third generation tools sometimes have disadvantages...

The bore scope is super cool! But the end mirror does not fit in the sparkplug hole... D'oh!

Lots of fun stuff stuck to my (BimmerBum supplied) magnetic drain plug. If you don't have one, get one now!!!
