    did my first oil change...



    I'm always a bit nervous for some reason when working on cars with silly priced engines but it couldn't have been any easier...



    filter housing and drain plug all torqued to spec. with old cars in the past I didn't normally bother with torque specs but it helps with the nerves as noted above...



    I replaced the air filters too while I was at it...

    installed eibach lowering springs for that sporty ride and slight improvement on appearance in my opinion...



    spot the deliberate mistake, don't you hate these silly little design flaws when you can't remove a bolt because it clashes with something. got it out in the end by use of two jacks and having to split the exhaust joint at the centre section...



    only a marginally noticeable drop but that's what I was going for...



    time for a test drive...

    Good to hear that basic maintenance is easy enough on the C63. My ISF was probably the easiest car ive ever owned for doing an oil change - the engineers actually thought about access for maintenance.

    Gosh I hate it when the engineers done think of thinks like being able to remove that bolt - if only they put it in the other way around huh...

    I totally agree mate. I could understand if they were vertically aligned bolts which is probably best practice to have the head of the bolt on top and the nut on the bottom just in case the nut backs off...

    no reason these can't be the other way around as far as I am concerned so they got reversed when they went back in...
