Before – One of the pleasures of owning an M roadser is to show off your engine.
After – I decided to add a little more spice in the look of it. I started to add some chrome accent. Most of the parts came from Ron J. Stygar expect for the strut bar, which came from Paul Ebeyer Sr.
After – Here’s what I’ve added;
* Battery Ground post
* Diagnostic connector cap
* Engine Lift point
* Oil filter lid
* Oil filter cap
* Radiator Cap
* Steering pump cap
* Radiator Spacer screws
* Valve cover nuts and washers
* Various Z8 nuts
* Windshield wiper jug screw
After doing so I felt that I could go the extra mile and have my valve cover and fuel line cover painted in Imola Red. Needless to say that I was really impress with the result.
I bought a new set of cover since I have use a lot of Armorall of these cover. My dealer told me that even if he would prep the cover very well, I could end up with fish eye on the cover.
After – Here’s the part number for the covers
* 11-12-1-404-466 – BMW M Power valve cover
* 13-54-1-740-160 – Fuel line cover
This really didn’t bring any power to the car but it sure looks more beautiful.
