Over the years I've never post much if anything in regards of supporting any vendors on forums, because I think there's enough people to show their supports and I don't like to stand on any side.

But in the case of Mike & Jay its pretty different, as some may know, owning an E39 540i is not for the faint of the heart, modifying one and drive it all the time is even worse, and as a person who's gluten to punishment, I've spent significant amount of my time and money on this car just to get it run right.

After battling it non-stop for years, yesterday I drove my car home without check engine light, no ticks, no spike in engine temperature, no funny business, just as a normal E39 540i would.

There have been times that I've almost grown to fear the car, but yesterday was one of the happiest days I've had in many many years, and all thanks to Mike & Jay, and my wife who keeps telling me not to push the car off the cliff.

Thx, I think Mike has seen that engine too many times and having nightmares from it.

I've been enjoy it so much that I intentionally take longer route home :)

Its a fun car to drive, still not an E30, but it is a love it or hate it kinda thing, the money I've spent on getting to run right is painful just to think about it. *sad* , I've promised myself, as soon it hits 400whp and sounds like an exotic, then no more mods.

Me rolling with the wife to pick up her car.

Me: "Mikey, car stalled on me in the parking lot, not sure why, what you think?"
Zimmie: "........" (bust out laptop and scan the car)
Zimmie: "cam sensor"
Zimmie: "let me get the tools"
Me: "huh?"
Zimmie: "voila, and the idle is raised too"

seriously, these guys are something.

Wow. Well then you are a lucky man in more ways then one. My significant other would prolly be the first one to help push it off a cliff. She would prolly even pay for the tow to the closest mountian.

Congrats, your car looks awsome.
