Re: zf 3hp 22 transmission oil change.

If you don't have an account already, imgbb works great with FF's front-end. https://imgbb.com/ Cheers, and we northern hemisphere dwellers are little envious of your summertime activities! thanks for the suggestion - hav...

bilstein reconditioning

I contacted Bilstein Australia www.bilstein.com.autoday asking about reconditioning of my front bilstein HD's . They said the workshop in Sydney is the only place that can do it, and its $440 for a pair.

Are they serious!

I picked up a pair of new HD's (for e28) last weekend for $250
