Found out the issue that caused my taillight to die again...wasn't wiring related.

Looks like I'll be buying another taillight assembly. And to think this one was advertised as waterproof..

I'm moving into the city soon and I expect my R56 Mini is going to end up being my most used car. Currently it's just for snow but that tiny thing is so nice to park.

Ouch... I just had to purchase a new bulb holder assembly and wiring connector repair kit. Ground pin blew on both. Project for this weekend.

Got new tires installed today. The Michelin PSS set that had ~30K miles on them were showing a wee bit of cord on the outside shoulders in front, so I figured it was time. (Actually, I got the new ones a month or so ago but for various reasons, I was unable to get them installed until today.) I wussed out and bought the AS4s this time around. I don't think it ever gets down to 20 degrees here but you never know and I might want to take the car up to Tahoe one of these days. So far, I don't like them. They feel like marshmallows compared to the summer tires. Hopefully, this will go away as they get some miles on them (?)

Those lights are nice! You mind posting where you got them?

Washed it in the dark last night...

Doubled up merino and latex gloves for a nice cold hand wash.

Saw a nice F87 M2 comp this morning at a Ford dealership and made me realize how much I don't need a M2 comp.

Congrats on the car! I love that estoril blue color and looks good with those wheels as well.

I've been trying to sell off parts from my previous M240i. Sold my stock wheels last week to someone local. Now trying to unload a TU fuel pump, downpipe and chargepipe. Getting some cash back in return on these items is oddly satisfying.

I officially got an allocation for a new M2 and the car goes into production December 18th. Went with the same color scheme as my M240i, black sapphire metallic, black wheels, blue calipers, and black interior. I guess I have a type. I should be able to pick it up sometime between late February and early March. Now to decide if I should get winter tires to finish the balance of this MN winter season or hold off until next winter, and just limit driving to fair conditions until the spring warmup. Definitely going with true winter tires vs the all seasons I had on my previous car to provide a little more confidence on the winter roads.

Needed to buy two new rear tires on our 240ix because one was punctured by a car key, the ENTIRE key. Only one corner of the key that you’d hold onto was exposed

Congrats on the M2 J, how exciting!

I installed the FTP charge pipe today, another step in the plan lol
Also my wife got me some CF paddle shifters for Christmas off Amazon off all places.
They seem decent quality and fit great, dry carbon look to match the interior.

Thought I'd share

Couldn't find any alcantara/Suede trim pieces that didn't have some sort of stitching so i created my own. Did the center piece and vents.

Looks good, can you do the trim around the shifter too?
I think that would be a nice complement
