remove, clean, and grease up my trunk lock
valve adjustment
fix unsealed high beam light (C'mon Ryan.. we gotta do it!)
fuel filter
clean gas door actuator
install new gas door hinge
replace passenger side front fender
get my wide grill hood (friggin' rarer than a virgin stripper)
trunk shocks
replace worn seal around front windshield
tighten all doors (damn squeeks!)
get a centreforce clutch
get an E28 M5 single mass flywheel
redo entire interior including floor carpet (I have rear M5 leather seats already...)
and finally...
complete paintjob including rust removal, kit install, shaving door handles, door bump strips & BMW symbols, widening fenders, and painting my HM2's black or bronze (currently undecided)

..then I'll look at installing a system and getting some balls in the engine bay (small block chevy would be nice).
...so I can finally do a damn donut

And you were trying to sell it to me Ryan!

My car is just about perfect. That said, I still owe the mechanic all kinds of cash for the recently done fuel pump, alternator, wiper linkage...

Well it died shortly after doing a 15 min burnout on a sheet of ice.. i think the fuel pump died.. or it ran outa gas. i'm not shure but i'm just going to leave it in the parking lot for a few days and see if it just needed a rest.

Going in for an oil change soon. Will let the tech know about these problems.
It is perfectly normal for your rpm to be higher during cold days, increased friction in the engine will warm your car up faster...

let bmw know about your problems...they are good with that sort of thing

Going to throw another one at you guys....

With the temp in the -20s, does your window freeze? I tried to open the window this morning to pay for coffee in drive thru, when I pressed the window button, the window wouldn't roll down. Are you guys having this problem?
Do you thnink it might cause damage since I tried it several time?

My windows stick as well, and what hurts is when they try and force themselves to go down a bit as I try to open my door (2dr coupes do this every time the door opens). I know it's not the best solution, but for now I put a thin coating of vaseline on the very edge of my windows, and it doesn't freeze anymore. The only downside, is when I roll down my window (which I hardly do in winter), you see a bit of smudging.
