You probably spent too much time in Canada you wanted to stay didn't you?

LOL. Canada is a great place. I could never get sick of Cactus Club bellinis or Timmy's ice capps, but I missed driving my car while I was up there!

I welded the diff a long time ago. It was in the car throughout all of last summer and then I had an open diff in it for winter, kept the welded and just put it back in.418331_3294350043823_1522388743_n.jpg

So then who should I go with for subframe bushings??

I liked the SerialNine ones a lot, but because of car shuffling, ended up with poly bushings in my currant X8.

Beech Performance are kind of crap, just glorified washers.

XMs are poly, and look nice. Poly won't transfer as much road & gear noise.

The guy in Autralia, Andrew at Technico has some solids, but they will probably end up costing more than SerialNine once you figure shipping in.

I would say save the full hard solid aluminum for an all out track car, and go with the XM stuff.

I run Andrew's (Technico) solid alloy diff and subframe bushes.

 

Good bit of gear and great fit too but yeah Gordo's right shipping will bite you in the end.

 

Just run XM's...

Just run Serialnine subframe bushings.They are better because they are solid aviation grade aluminum,where XM's are just military grade polyurethane.

either or,they are both high quality.I just prefer solid alloy over high grade polyurethane.

Try Simple Green on that rear bumper, it will pull those dark stains out of the plastic.

Annie, there was a simular clear cleaner that was as strong as simple green, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was.

The simple green may leave a light green tint depending on how oxidized the bumper is, but that comes off with a good auto polish/wax.

 

All 4 of my X8s had that damn streaked/stain on the rear bumper when I got them

 

Any simular alkaline aqueous solution, water-based mixtures with a pH greater than 7 will work.

Most of these types of cleaners range from a pH of 10 to 14.
