The leak from the Intensive Washer tank is likely the pump. Mine was doing the same. The pump has a weep hole and leaks when the overmold fails the pump will leak until the fluid level is below the weep hole.
Yeah, I don't like it. Airbox air tends to be warmer the ambient, especially if the car is sitting. If not, BMW wouldn't bother with have separate ambient and AIT sensors

I completely agree that's where the leak was coming from, especially as there was fluid until just below the pump nozzle. I just always found the system useless, so I nixed it. On the other car, I replaced it, good for a year, then leaking again, and I never use it, soo.... weight saved.

I'm really liking the idea of deleting the intensive wash tank. Does getting rid of it also delete the function of washing the headlights? I kind of like having that, but also have the leak and wouldn't mind getting rid of it.

No, headlight washers pull from the primary tank. All it gets rid of is the function of the button on the right stalk... which I may attempt to remap to m track mode down the road, if I can pull off a MK60 DSC swap.

Just finished all 7 pages so far. Very intense. I like the modifications too. Looks like everything was done with practicality in mind. That's what comes to mind when I think of this car. It's fun, but practical.

I'm taking a few ideas from your list so far. Enjoy the car!

Did you consider the vertical LI jammers made for BMW kidney grills?

Thanks. Practical is the goal!

Yes... but the e39 kidneys are slightly angled aren't quiet wide enough for the sensors to be truly 100% vertical, so their effectiveness would be reduce. These are all but invisible in real life, and will be even less so once I blacken the screw. You basically have to get on your knees to see them, since they're flush with the top of the bumper duct and recessed.

Love the choice for summer wheels. Huge fan of OEM Rims or BBS Rims on BMWs. Car looks great. Keep up the updates.

Have a Safe and Happy Holidays Everyone.

you should have consulted here before removing the AIT kit, that is a good mod no matter if the car is alpha-n or not. the way it was wired was the correct way to install it. i would put it back on .
