Time to install an exhaust, a hot air intake and a bunch of carbon fiber stuff on a brand new BMW M2 competition.

European car companies keep using this rubberized coating on buttons and trim parts and it always turns to sticky goo after a few years. ❄🐻🤔

I always get a little chuckle when I see a previous mechanics lost tools in an engine bay. ❄🐻🤣

Welp, looks like the cam gear is jamming when trying to adjust when cold or there is a restriction in the oil feed to the vanos valves. We informed the customer and what the next steps are. Well, he decided to sell it. Bye bye M6.

Donald Trump is reported to be deeply indebted to the Bank of China, through a real estate debt which falls due in 2022, offering “astonishing leverage” to Beijing. This is deeply disturbing, to say the least. news.yahoo.com/donald-trump-re

I'm not a BMW expert so I'm stumped. No one else seems to have seen this before. Hmmmm. :/

I've got a 2014 BMW M6 that I can't figure out this cold start VANOS issue. I've cleaned the vanos solenoids, moved them, replaced one. The oil is good and at the correct level. The latest DME software is installed. Electrical is good. Runs perfectly when warmed up with no codes.

Hmm. Apparently you need to pull the rear bumper off to replace the air filters on newer 911s. I'm gonna guess these filters have never been replaced.

Got some leaky hydraulic rams on this tired SLK230. My guess is the customer won't want to fix it.
