13Jester13 Sorry, pictures originally didn't post. Here was my pride and joy day 1 after driving it home from TX. The second is 17 days later.... never fails. Right now I am sitting at 6-8 weeks to get it fixed. So mid Feb I will hopefully have her back.

One owner, Black Saphire, '07, SMG, with 90k miles, but with "vanos failure issue". So after some hours of research here on m5board, I felt like I could take the risk. Upon looking at it, and low balling the owner, I pulled the trigger.

I've got a massive box full of every service record, 19 oil changes, new smg pump, new clutch, etc. etc. very well maintained, immaculate.... but then the whole VANOS issue which I'm 90% sure at this point, is just a broken line inside. I don't yet have the oil pan off but I'm pretty close. (doing this myself) I'll start a build thread soon as I'm also doing bearings, and well, everything.




I can't wait to drive this thing...

Day 17

13Jester13 I agree with Sy. on both accords, blue is the best color and a.torras your car is BEA-U-tiful. I recently flew to Houston to buy my fully loaded '08 Interlagos and then drove it back. Had the temp tag on it for 3 whole glorious weeks until I got side swiped last Thurs . Luckily they are not going to total it and should have it back in 3-4 weeks, plus time off for the holidays I am sure. Fingers crossed she will be good as new when I get it back. I'll post some pics of the horror when I have a chance.

Curse of the temp tag...

I have been contemplating a customized license plate. If you have a good one, shout it out

Sy. Looks lovely yours .... Blue is the best colour :-)
You do realize your car is on the K3 Projekt website .... nice bit of advertising for those wheels

Also exhaust doesn't look stock ... Do you know what it is and is it loud or reasonable ?

a.torras Sy- Sorry, I'm new at this forum thing. They are K3 Projekt 1's. The car had the suspension set up that it has when I bought it, so I'm unsure of what it has. Thanks!

Sy. A.Torras - what wheels are those :-) ... and what is your suspension set up ? lowered etc and spacers ?
Lovely looking car.
