Last cosmetic replacement. The last owner removed part of the rear surround - it was cut around the license plate. I replaced it today - and of course it started raining on me (I floated it into place so the rain was just annoying.) Wondering if there is any value is saving the VIN off the last decal. Cut it out, save the whole remaining piece, not worth saving?

Sebastian, between Melbourne and Vero Beach. I worked in Panama City Beach for a few months and liked it. Very different than the southern part of the state.

I'm looking into it... never been. I have a friend who wants to ride it on his cycle so perhaps we'll go together.

I got really pissed off at my car since I can’t fit my hand in tight spaces. I installed my HPS short ram intake. Very pleased though with the finished product. Looks great fits great though. Doing my timing chain tensioner this weekend so it stops sounding like a diesel pickup. Should’ve arrived today but got delayed in shipping for some reason. Have to watch a few videos just to make sure I know what I’m doing and don’t mess something up

Started replacing my plastic trim today. Look so much better. Changed out my rear wiper motor. Was leaking fluid from the back. Waiting on my wire adapter.

Connected a Bovee bluetooth adapter to my R56 JCW. Now I have streaming music and the steering wheel controls work. Super simple to install and use.

I replaced my motor mounts.


Before

After

If you don't have a little gap under the rectangular plate on the top motor mount, yours needs replacing too. This was a pretty easy job to do in an hour. I jacked up just the right side of the car, and didn't even need to take the wheel off.
