1st successful work on my 528i

I changed the water pump and thermostat Friday evening. The Bentley manual was paid for with money saved on mechanic bills.

I also repaired the light adjusters and now have great lighting an night!

The only problem that I ran in to was in replacing the front ABS sensors. I had the bolt sheer off on the drivers front!!!! Otherwise, I'm happy with how easy it is to work on the straight 6.
