All E46s Recalled!!!!!!!!!

I’m actually happy that it’s being recalled since it means I get to go into a dealership and -maybe- leave with a loaner.

Although the airbag isn’t really defective; when my last ‘05 E46 coupe was totaled, the passenger airbag did deploy.

Good call BMW! Apparently there have been 0 reported incidents of it failing but they issued the recall as a precaution.

It’s now been two full months since I last washed my car. After I realized just how back CA’s drought was, I actually have been trying to save water. Even though I’m living on my own right now and utilities are included in my rent (fixed cost); owner doesn’t give a damn how much water I use.Meanwhile, these asshole neighbors are turning on their sprinklers when it’s still daytime with the sun out at around 90F.And another washing his Prius. What a fucking irony.And here I am, finally buying a bottle of waterless car wash off Amazon, watching everyone else waste water.

Rear fenders were rolled and the cement gunk cleared up and the wheel wells re-sealed so they don’t rust.But found out that the rear passenger tire had a screw in it and a deep gash from side to side.I guess this is better than riding on the spare donut for now……or is it?

More car problems

-Rear fenders have been rolled, and the cement gunk has been cleared up but re-sealed. But the tires still rub when going past a dip…………
Looks like I’ll need an aggressive fender pull or camber plates.

-Window trim (rubber part) is still falling apart.

-Alignment is still off.

-Rear passenger tire has a screw in it, plus a gash across the center from the face of the wheel to the inner part. Currently using buddy’s stock 17-inch wheel with an over-inflated tire.

Etc.

Damn…..

The parking warning that I received a month ago at my last job.I guess the letters “BMW” on the hood, all four wheels, trunk, and steering wheel were too small for him to see. But for some reason he wrote down Khoalty which is one of four small decals I have on the rear passenger window…..What stumped me the most was “lenile.” The guy’s Hispanic and I took four years of Spanish and I had to Google it to make sure “lenile” wasn’t a color. It isn’t.Plata or gris would’ve made sense…..10/10 made my day week.

A little update on my car progress:Umnitza’s 6000K Orion V2 angel eyes are not “the” shit, they ARE shit.I can’t find a pic of the one bad ring but because one of the inner halos went out (only half, other half stays lit), I just decided to have both inner rings disconnected. At least this way, it doesn’t look mismatching.Anyways the quad retrofit (inner = Morimoto Mini H1s) are now aimed too low and are mis-leveled. My original installer fucked up my most recent one had to fix his mistakes. Even then, it still sags.Both headlights will go under the knife (and into the oven) eventually for more touch-up work at the very least.Oh and the front is about an inch lower. My front lip’s underside is pretty messed up now from scraping……and the rear tires keep hitting the inner fender lining whenever I go up/down a driveway or hit a bump on the freeway.

Finally got my car back after five and a half days of being at the shop for maintenance + mods.This is how it sits as is at the front. Supposedly, these new shocks/springs will make it drop even further by a little over an inch&#8230;&#8230;.

Washed her for the first time in a while…..maybe two full months have passed since the last wash. Life (mostly school) had been keeping me busy.

On a side note, love the feature of the AE’s.

"I wonder what car that is, underneath the cover……."
