On my 500 dollar baller ride I just replaced every cooling related component there was to replace.

Also all the tensioners, idler pulley and replaced plastic PS pump pulley with aluminum one.

Also replaced plastic transfer case motor gear with a brass one.

Also new thermal oil level sensor.

Next up...
Tranny flush and fill
Diff flush and fill
Outer CV boots
Rewire inside of the facking headlights......cause biodegradable effing insulation

I threw on the JY 4.6is calipers this weekend along with new stainless lines. Went with BrakeMotive pads/calipers. They shipped direct from PowerStop with branded z17 pads. I assume the rotors are PowerStop too. Hope I don't regret drilled/slotted. I did last time I used them ~15yrs ago.

I'm curious if anyone with a 4.6/4.8 has ever used a spare from a Land Rover 322?
They're 19"with the same bolt pattern/hub bore and much more available than the BMW donut spare.

I still officially owe you a case of beer (or favorite equivalent). You saved my sanity with the rusty water filled transmission connector!

Just as I ordered lot's cooling stuff coolant reservoir started to leak. Well, that one I already got new, so guess I'll have replace it today and do the rest later when they arrive.

I think the e70 would be an issue since it has a 1.5mm larger hub bore. LR stuck with the 72.6mm e53 hub bore size through present

The best deal I've found on an E70 spare is this combo. You'd have to install the tire yourself, but under $200 for a new and fresh spare...
