2 doors sensos changed

few parts in belt system and under the car (dont know how they are in english)

bough LSD. ratio is 2.56 and i fitted new XADO LSD oil.

hello again. its been a while when i wrote here last time :D
so whats happened meanwhile?

changed oil (BP 10w40) and oilfilter (hengst)
bought new Centra 100ah/900a battery
2 new heated mirror glasses
new hazard light switch
little fix to motor oil cooler because i damaged it when there was too much snow and ice :D
fixed driver side window and hood cable
changed flywheel because old one did noises
because clutch couldnt handle the power anymore then i had to replace it. clutchdisc has now new covers and plate is from e39 530d
will go to dyno in spring and then i know exacly how much it is but i guess about 130kw and 340nm atm.

also a little accident. one taxi driver turned in front of me and didnt see me. it was hes fault so insurance will fix my car soon. i will get 2 new doors , new mirror and new right front wing + whole right side new paint







changed 4x brake discs and 4x pads + their clips
bought new starter because old one didnt work normaly
new tank fuel pump because old one refused to work and car didnt run when i had less than 20L of fuel





so at the moment we have ice roads open because it was -20c to -30c degrees for 2 weeks. longest one is 25,5km long from main land to island called Hiiumaa. so i wanted to go there:






but it was so bumpy road. my exhaust came lose



so i had to fix it :D




one day i decided that it has been 4 months since i bought 18button OBC but i STILL havent made it work. (i originaly had 7button) so i took wires and tools and went to a warm garage. now everything works besides check control (because i dont have it and i dont care)



also i installed PDC system



and cleaner my car inside and outside today



coldest morning was few days ago. -26,5C when i sat to car. about -30c at night. i thinked that my car wont start but it did :)

bah . enought of this winter. i want summer and +30c...+35c back again like last summer.

i have had this car for 6months and 1 week now. and have drived about 27500km (or about 17100miles)

OBC has been calibrated for now. difference between real world and OBC readings are +-0.1L/100km so its almost impossible to make it even more accurate.
last few days my city-average has been around 8.5l/100km (about 27,6mpg) and its pretty good number because factory says 10,4 (22,6).
from point A to B only in highway with cruise control is about 5.5l/100 (42mpg) and thats good also , considering that this car has 25+ more KW's than stock and very wide wheels + its old 6cilinder engine.

anyway. i changed my tank pump because old one didnt work but now with new one i have had some trouble with starting the car in mornings. it seems that fuel goes back to tank from the fuelpipe when car stays off for more than 5 hours. i just bought "backflow valve" (dont know how that is in english) and will install it soon. hope that it helps. it prevents fuel to go backwards.

and good news from insurance. car will go for repairwork in monday. tho it will be there for 4-6days whats is not so great :p

huh. 4 days without car is not good :D
anyway. it back now!

yesterday i replaced hood shocks. at last. it wasnt fun to hold the hood with my head or shoulder anymore.

so. today i thinked that maybe i should do few pictures





then i realised that my car was too dirty for taking pictures.
went to my friends car wash and gave it a good clean + waxed it.
but then i didnt have the mood to take proper pictures anymore , but still did some randoms





new color is nice :) i wish the whole car would be painted...
