Thanks a bunch Jazz

Modian - Cooling is still on the worry list and may get to the CSF radiator and oil cooler yet. Still looking at vents in the hood before the Radiator. Also, will look at the oil cooler upgrade. For now, I know that the heat exchangers are all up to spec and the engine side of the system is good - cuts down the variables moving forward.

Actually I am now getting codes the the car is not warming up fast enough - go figure. Normally this code means that the thermo is failed open but I am not sure that is true in this case - it does reset itself. I think the issue here is the low temp thermo. Anyway, I have no intentions of digging into this to fix a BMW running to cool - that would be insanity, until due for emissions.

I wish you'd asked my advice before painting the brake calipers. Almost everyone knows that RED calipers are the bomb, and YELLOW calipers are the $hit$.

I agree with Jazz - this is a great thread. Nicely done.

Thanks Dr K.

I spent a lot of time in a state confusion over which color to paint the calipers - options included:

BLACK - would add to the 50 shades of black look
RED - Eliminated due to the whole Porsche "Big Red" thing - not what I was looking for on a BMW
YELLOW - Did not want to get into the faux carbon fiber deal

I saw the blue on a new M2 and decided on that.

Tito,

Well doing the labor yourself does improve the ratio of: (parts - supplies)/(total cost + first aid)

In this case, first aid can be defined as beer, aspirin, legal drugs, illegal drugs - whatever floats your boat.
