Kendrick Cheng says:

Man, I did the same thing as you – I installed the rear shocks without the shim and washer under the rear shock mount. Been driving around for 2 weeks with rattles from the rear. So annoyed now that I have to take it apart to fix it up.

Hmmm, @ShopLifeTV I am about to stick some Eibach ProKit springs on my saloon. I got some Meyle HD front droplinks to replace the old ones. Am I going to have issues with the new front droplinks as the car will sit a little bit lower on the Eibach springs?

Jody Blackwell says:

is it the same for the 1996 Z3

Im just about to buy these ST coils, but i dont know if i should go with the ones with camber/caster plate or the ones without that. I dont want insane camber or change the caster. XA or XTA? Best Regards

Hey mate I need some help with my 330ci when I start the engine and drive it, it feels groggy and sounds like something is lagging in the engine doesn't drive properly but eventually the traction light comes on and abs light comes and makes a bleep noise then drive perfect no problem at all but this happens every time I drive, do you know what could be causing this? awesome channel btw

ThaDutchDK1989 says:

how much do the front reinforcement plates cost? cause i did the rear cause its very common but the front is normally never cracking right only by m3? further have you got solution for the squecking trunklid?

Leandro Raul says:

IT IS THE FIRST CART I WORKED, I HAVE CHANGED THE STARER, INTAKE MANGERS, ARM CONTROL, BEARINGS, BRAKES. I HAVE THE DEFECTIVE ibs AS I DISABLED IT AND NOW THIS PROBLEM, I WENT WITH THE TRUCK ON ROAD TO MY HOUSE. LE PROBE WITH WATER AND SOAP IF I HAD A VACUUM EXHAUST IN THE INTAKE AND I SAW NOTHING. I have written to almost all the channels of bmw that I am underwritten that they are enough and few have said something to me.

prestonla says:

Thank you! This was my next project and now I have your DIY to do it correctly. Keep up the great work it's awesome that you thoroughly explain every step. And also what not to do.

SORY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH

Leandro Raul says:

Hello, searching and searching with your channel. I have a problem with my 325i 2006. I was driving it and suddenly I turned on the check engine light. I put the scanner and it gave me misfire in the cylinder 6. I thought they were sparring plogs or coils, I changed the spark plugs and the coil 6. and followed me with the problem. Change the coils and nothing. I changed the valcover gasket. I clean the sensor, the cylinder is ok. I do not know what it can be. Do you have any idea. a greetingv
