If you live in an apartment or you can't get your car up on ramps or stands but want to change your oil, then this is exactly what you need. This tool enables you to drain from the dipstick tube and refill like normal, without getting under the car or fighting with drain plugs. Not only is it convenient it's also efficient: most cars leave oil in the pan when being drained from the plug—sometimes up to a half quart. The extractor, however, can reach this remaining broken down fluid to make room for even more uncontaminated lubricant. Extract the extra work from the job.
For vehicles with factory direct tire pressure monitoring sensors only The Foxwell TPMS sensor integrates 315MHz and 433MHz dual frequency and can replace more than 96% of the OEM sensors on the market. Sensors can easily be activated and programmed by any TPMS tool on the market.
Turner Motorsport control arms are designed in-house to be a longer, stronger, and lighter weight alternative to expensive (and boring) OEM replacements. If you're overhauling the front suspension on your E36, this is the right move for you! Turner’s race kit provides +10mm more track width (per side) than stock. Wider track width reduces the amount of load transfer to the outside when cornering, increases cornering power, and allows more inner clearance for meaty wheel and tire setups or brake ducts. Turner’s drift kit provides 65mm more track width (per side) than stock. This kit creates clearance for 60 degrees of steering angle when installed with our Turner angle kit and rack spacers. Their Roll Center Correction Race Kit corrects your roll center and improves handling, it also provides increased steering response and bump steer correction. Thanks to the use of their rack limiters, you can maintain the same steering angle as before, while drastically decreasing steering wheel input. After the kit was installed on a E36 M3 test vehicle equipped with a Z3 2.7 turn lock to lock steering rack, it only required 2 full turns lock to lock. A reduction of 26%! Bump steer is also correctable to virtually 0, thanks to spacers to adjust tie rods up or down. Z3 2.7 Steering Rack will require different rack spacers (see ES4213307). When you lower a car, it drastically changes the geometry of the suspension. While lowering a car makes it handle better by lowering the center of gravity, the roll center is negatively impacted, increasing the roll moment, which causes cornering forces to have more of an effect on the body roll of the vehicle. This is normally ignored because the stiffer lowering springs make the issue less noticeable, but ultimately grip is lost, and body roll is increased. Once the roll center has been corrected it is immediately apparent how much the performance of the vehicle had been suffering prior. By correcting the lower outer ball joint location with the Turner Roll Center Correction Race Kit, the instantaneous center of rotation is raised, bringing the roll center much closer to the center of gravity, and significantly decreasing roll movement. This minimizes body roll, provides more grip, and ultimately leads to an improved and predictable driving feel.
