Had a couple hours to work on the wagon yesterday, so I got some stuff done...
-new OEM hood struts (didn't take any pictures)
-new OEM warning triangle with OE mounting bracket. Didn't actually look like it would fit, but it did :P

-put an oil pan back on. This ended up being a bigger project than I expected. One of the POs had stripped the drain plug hole, so I wanted to replace it. I bought a new (used) one off an engine that TTFS blew up with shitty tuning. It was a new design than mine (came off an 06), so I ended up having to go back to get the pickup tubes, too. Then it turned out that BMW had changed the oil temp/level sensor from being mounted with bolts to mounted with studs, so had to get some hardware for that, too. Anyway, that's done now :P

-replaced the engine mounts and steering guibo. No pics
-revalved the power steering pump to decrease the assistance by 25%. No pics
-replaced the passenger front control arm with OEM (Lemforder)
