Well here we go. I did something dumb.

I took my beautiful bimmer down this haggard ass dirt road. ghead Now, I have a magical hole in my exhaust, that has to be welded.

Now. Also a few questions.

I had a fluid leak or something from my car. All indications seem to be its water, it doesnt taste sweet (coolant) or bitter (ATF) There was a bunch of it, and it looked almost like oil/rust was in the water. so I'm betting thats drainage/condensation from my punctured exhaust, but there was alot of it.

I'm also looking at what may or may not be a cracked brake pad. Can anyone suggest a set of pads that would do nicley for my 525i?

Also, perplexing one here.
When I have my heat on, the rear vents (in the console) continue to blow ice cold air... why?
ghead

KTL is an unknown quantity at this point
Sorry about your exhaust!

Yes the rusty water is probably coming from the exhaust system - if the car normally does short trips and if the humidity is high it accumulates there.

Brake pad - why not go original?

The rear console vents are for fresh air, just as the large ones in the middle and sides of the dashboard. The rear heating comes from the floor mounted vents!

I'm prolly gonna stick to OE for the pads, and thanks for the FYI on the exhaust.

Rear console vents only for fresh air huh? hrm... that'd explain the ice coldyness of it.

Thanks a bunch.
