Finished another solid trip towing the trailer.



I've done about 1500 miles in the last six weeks, all towing. Averaged about 13mpg during all of these trips, with the lowest being 11.9mpg and the highest 14.3. No issues to speak of except the left rear window regulator went bad.


I realized thay I have spent as much on gas in the last six weeks as I have the entire rest of the year.

How much do you average before without the towing?

I drive so few miles that it is inconsistent and usually very low. Usually in the 15-16 range, especially in the winter when the car doesnt even warm up. But on highway trips it has done 20-22 mpg.

What did you do to / for your E53 today??



Finally started installing my replacement headlights. Only one so far.



New v. old. Pretty clear why they upgrade.

I found a set of 3rd party that so far are very ok.

The parts move over from the HID level aiming motor and it comes with an adapter to switch out the Incan low beam that comes with.

It uses external inline plugs to connect to the existing wiring for the high beam and uses the existing lamp holder for the marker light.

I'm very happy with the look of the lights though I may give this set to wife and get the black set for my car.



One more pic of before and after.

White greased all doors and hinges. They were dry and rusty.

Washed and vacuumed. Sonax wheel cleaner. Brake dust is horrible.

When I opened up the hood I took a look at the intake and here is what I saw....

Looks like I found the issue or at least one of them. While I have it apart should I replace anything else?
