Rich Dad, Poor Dad!

Rich Dad, Poor Dad!

 

Today, I’m not going to write about BMW E36 cars. I decided to tell you about a book that I’ve been reading and really enjoying. The book is called Rich Dad, Poor Dad What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money–That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!. The author of this book Robert Kiyosaki talks about him being raised by his father (the poor & educated one) and his friend’s father (the rich & not so educated one).

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

What I really liked about this book and thought that I should share with you guys is the fresh look at how we live our lives while working in what he calls the "Rat Race". The book is really an eye-opener and I hope you all have the chance to read it. It’s a very small book and yet I consider it as a gold mine because it makes you think about how you spend your life and how you waste it while taking a daily job to work for money instead of making the money work for you. Yes, the money can work for you!

I guess with the year 2007 coming to an end soon, everyone of us should have a good and deep look at what he’s accomplished until now and what he’s not.

BMW Options List . . . Continued!

 

I’ve posted previously about BMW Options List and I said that you can find the list of options that your car is equipped with. In that post, I thought that a sticker should be found on the backseat with a list of numbers that are actually options codes. That was correct, but the location of the sticker was not on the back of the rear seat as I thought. It was actually placed on the back of the rear bench instead. I know that because I went and looked for it and simply didn’t find any until I removed my car’s rear bench and there it was. So, here are some simple photos for it:

 

Disclaimer: Use this info at your own risk!! I’m not responsible if this didn’t work for you :-).

Pull in the direction of the arrows below to remove the rear bench

After you remove that bench, you will see the sticker in the back of the bench

I took a photo of the sticker itself, I’m sorry for the dirt. I couldn’t remove it because. the sticker is actually a normal paper, so using a little water or cleaner on it will simply ruin it

From the list of numbers that you can see (at the bottom of the sticker), I got my car’s list of options

031 ?
055 ?
240 Leather Steering Wheel w/ Airbag
320 Script Name Plate … what is this?
354 Anti-glare Windshield Strip
401 Sliding Sunroof Electrical
415 Sunshade for Package Shelf
423 Velour Floor Mats
428 Warning Triangle/First Aid Kit … this is missing! I’d better go find the previous owner!
440 Non-smoker’s Package
473 Front Armrest
481 Sport Seat – Driver/Passenger
494 Heated Seats Driver/Passenger
510 Headlight Adjustment Low Beam Light
554 On-board Computer V
661 Radio, BMW Business
690 Cassette Box
704 Sport Styling (body and suspension)
801 Order Control … What?
848 Enlarged Cable Harness … excuse me?

This is really awesome to be able to find all the options that came with your car. But unfortunately, I don’t recognize some of the options like 031, 055, 801 and 848. Anyone knows what are these options? Now, I would love to see you guys doing the same thing and lets see if you have any special/rare options on your cars. Try it and let me know.

 

Are you looking for more do it yourself procedures (DIY) ? I recommend the Bentley BMW 3 series service manual for you. I got it and I think it’s a gold mine for us -BMW E36 Owners-. If you didn’t grab your copy yet, get it right now! I’m sure you’ll find this book worth every penny you’ve paid for. Get the Bentley BMW 3 series service manual

Fixing BMW E36 Door Panels . . . Videos!

 

Hello, First of all, I just want to apologize for not being able to post on schedule in the last 4 or 5 days. I’ve been very busy with my relatives and couldn’t find an hour or two to even do a quick post. So, I hope that you have missed me (or missed my posts at least :lol: ). For today’s post, I have found these 3 videos which precisely show how you can remove your BMW E36 door panels, fix them and re-install them again. After you’re done with these videos, please pay attention to the sound of the door while closing. It’s a magnificent sound. I hope you find these videos useful. In case you hate videos (well, I don’t know why you should be), but you can find another DIY that I have posted before about fixing your door panels. You can find it here Fixing BMW E36 door panel!.

Check it out!


 

I hope you liked the video . . . if not, come on let’s. see your videos ;-)

BMW M3 2008 is humiliated! That’s really sad

 

Hello, I’ve been away for a while and that’s why I couldn’t post as normal. I had to do something with one of my relatives and I simply couldn’t escape that. I just hope that you’re missing my posts. Are you? Anyway, I hope that I will be able to get back to normal posting rate in the next couple days just after I. get rid of him LOOL :lol: just kidding.

About today’s post, it’s a BMW M3 car vs …? I’m sure that many of you are anxious to know what is the beast who kicked the BMW M3 2008’s in the butt. You may not be expecting this but it’s the Bugatti Veyron and it really makes sense because the BMW M3 is a fabulous car and beating it would not be something that you call it "easy". What is making me feel sad about this video is that the BMW didn’t even have a chance. Not at all, so here you go.

Check it out!



 

I hope you liked the video . . . if not, come on let’s see your videos ;-)
