I've yet to see it done.....but I was at the Indy who's a BMW Master tech at the dealership before he branched on his own.

Anyhow he was telling me he cobbled up come parts and it takes only about 10 minutes per side...

I rented the kit myself. Def. took more than 10 minutes, even with the kit.

I'll eyeball the cv boots and all the suspension fittings while I'm on the creeper.
Going to be a rewarding busy weekend.

I may try to get my calipers painted, PS reservoir changed, and CCV done this weekend if I feel especially efficient, lmao!

May try--indicates you are giving yourself an out-good plan.

Trying to get my work-bench clear of "to-do" parts that I have bought but haven't installed yet, the calipers are a priority since I've had the kit a year and the epoxy can harden and I'd have to get a new reactor from G2, while its up on the jack-stands curing it wouldn't be a bad idea to get my CCV done as I just barely made it through winter with it.

Will update, my honey might be running errands on Saturday so I may finally have the time to get caught up.

Mine leaves me with a honey-do list that always grenades any optimistic plans I have.

Got my 02 sensors, and the WRONG subframe bushings, lol. Will do the O2 sensor once the engine's cooled.
