Thanks for the reply. I'm going to use a hose on a heavy mist setting to rinse -- no plans for high pressure water. Sounds like I shouldn't have problems.

The vent pipe fixed my problem. It's been about a week since I made the change and no gas cap warning or CEL since. I hope you aren't making me jinx it, MrGrumpy. :)

The 2nd sensor on the new thermostat replaces the one on the metal elbow. There's a new hose that deletes the metal elbow.

If not putting other people at risk isn't enough of a deterrent, consider that there could be insurance implications if you're in an accident while running illegal lighting.

You are likely to need more than one torque wrench. Lug bolts and transmission pan bolts require very different settings. And TPMS sensors are much lower still.

You should be able to put them on soon. I lived in Dublin for 13 years and don't remember much snow after the middle of March. I hope you'll post a photo once you have them on.

Yeah, I need to get one of those.

Last week I ordered the Schwaben vacuum coolant refill tool. That should also make the job a little easier (and more foolproof).

I bought my bonnet stripes from motoringstripes.com. The vinyl guy I had install them said they were top of the line material. About half the price of genuine Mini and much higher quality.
