You bet! Not as often as before unless I really need a helping hand or fatherly brains for some problem solving. :)

Installed the Maxpeedingrods coilovers the other day. While I haven't driven it much yet as I'm waiting for an alignment, first impression is that it rides smoother than IPDs/Konis.  Couldn't go wrong with these as the whole set is cheaper than just replacing front struts on the normal setup..
 
The fronts are as low as they go unless I remove the collar ring (which I may do later). Height is comparable to IPD springs as-is.
 
The rears took a little effort to install, had to drill the lower shock bushing holes a little as they wouldn't fit over the studs. Also, at full droop (shock fully extended), the rear springs are slightly past full extension and loose. I don't think they are going to fall out or anything, but I am a little weary of going lower at this point. I may re-work the upper shock mounting a little higher so that it can't droop as much, but we'll see how this rides for a while first. I suspect everything will settle in and lower a little more as I drive it.
 
This car has been in storage for about 2 years and I'm happy to be bringing it back to roadworthy over the rest of this summer.

Popular to contrary belief, a stock XC70 on all-season tires can be loads of fun to autox.

New wheels for the wagon and generally driving the bmw whenever it’s nice out. I've had the bmw for just a little over 2 years now and the wagon will have been mine for 2 years in December. Crazy.
