What needs to be fixed/repaired on your car?

Post a list of everything that is pending to be fixed/repaired on your car? ... I'm interested to see how many people are having the same problems with their bimmers...

I'll start:

- Subframe bushings
- Front Ball Joints
- bent rims (new ones are coming)
- needs bodyjob + paint

Damn thing constantly says my tail light is out no matter if I replace the bulb or not.

Several spots of rust, and I believe I gotta rebuild my rockers.

Rear wheel bearings, CV joints, rear control arm bushings (offset), new tires soon, turbo, front control arm bushings (m3) that finishes it all up.

EVERYTHING else has been done!

Thats not too bad, just look at my Pug's service list, considering nothing was fixed by the dumbass who owned it before.

Things to do:
Small rust spots around where rustproofing was done
Driveshafts and their bearings
Drive shaft seals on tranny
Leaky Gasket
Cylinder seals
Shocks, sighs its a big one
Distributor casing needs replacing
Rubber boot on engine air intake
Rear Brake distributor
Timing belts just to be safe
Speedo cable, (case of jumpy speedo)
DTM exhaust from manifold
and whatever else is messed up

Passenger power window wiring- can anyone do this or recommend anyone who can?

OBC doesn't sit straight

Interior detailing

Paint/Rust work

New bumpers (get rid of diving boards)

Air conditioning
