    Popping Sound When Turning?

    I had the same problem with my 92 ES300, but it went away after I have the CV boots replaced.
  2. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=33567 Anyone try these Lomandi Kevlar/metallic brake pads? Are they any good?
  3. Anyone know where I can get the window motor for the front driver side for cheap? The dealer cost is $625!
  4. I thinking of getting these Brembo drilled/slotted rotors for my 92: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...RK%3AMEBWA%3AIT anyone try them? is it a good price for $190 (for all 4 rotors)? How much do they usually cost?

    Struts & Strut Mounts

    :D I just put in KYBs and Eibach Pro-kit Springs in mine. Made my car much more fun to drive.

    Ok, I'm Sick Of It!

    I've pulled the vents about 5 or 6 times now on my 92. Takes me no more than a minute to slide it out. Its pretty easy once you know where the tabs are. They are on the top about 1" in from the sides. I used a harness remover which is flat and bent downwards at the forked tip. I stick this tool in about 1 inch and push the handle of the tool up to force the tab down and pull outward at the same time. Just do this for one side to slide it out a bit (1/2 cm) then do the other side and it slides right out. Good luck. :D
  7. I had the same problem with overheating in my 92, and was fixed by replacing the head gaskets too.
  8. SK, I didn't mean flush as in no gap showing. I meant like how the BMWs tires are flush with the side body when looking from the front or back and not sunken in.
  9. squarehat do you have any pics of your car? Thanks.
  10. I am thinking of 17 inch rims. with 215/50/17 tires? This tire diameter is very close to the 205/65/15 stock diameter. So should I get 17x7 rims? Would the the 7 in. width make the wheels flush with the body?
  11. I want to get wider rims so that it looks flush with the body, instead of the recessed factory look. Someone said to make sure that the backspace of the new rims are close to the factory rims or else I will get rubbing.
  12. Anyone know what the backspace distance is for 92 ES300 factory alloy rims? Thanks.

    Wider Wheels

    bbsal, i like how your wheels are flush with the body. The factory wheels 16x6 are recessed in the wheel well, do I just need to get wider rims? like 16x8? And whats with the offsets that I see on some wheel specs, like what does 20 mm offset mean?

    Leather Tips?

    sk, what size is your big'o vat/tub of solid cocoa butter? I've only seen a 6 oz container at the walmarts here.
  15. There is a Ground/Earth Kit selling on ebay for the ES that claims: After installing this grounding kit, you will immediately notice an improvement in your idling, and top end acceleration. You will also experience 1-3 HP increase. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...item=2424936300 Anyone try this? Or is it a scam?
