Mercedes is already apart, and the Range Rover is a gas guzzler, I figured this was the best time to do away with pistons for a bit.
Just have to have her out of the garage so she doesn't sniff paint.
So I have decided on Polishing the Aluminium intake into a mirror finish with a metallic teal valve cover, thanks to AMGtech for the idea.
However upon pulling the valve covers off I found something amazing.
Finally getting around to doing some work to the S600. Intake is off and valve covers are coming next. Needs new crank vent hoses and some random vacuum lines.

Oh god what have I done to my wallet.
Reset the codes and let it go through its learning program. 20 miles later there was no problem. Convertible top is still broken, but…
I need counseling.
My E39 found has departed from this world after the poor treatment I've given her. I find myself weary of work and require some time on the road. Help me choose my next car OPPO! I manage a stealership so I will never actually take said vehicle into my own name. Be reasonable, under 30k, prefer convertible. I'm…
