ALL E46 M3 NEED TO HAVE THIS DONE! (S54 Rod Bearings Tips and Tricks)!

We are getting close to the finish line in terms of maintenance on this 2006 BMW E46 M3 that was purchased from the Copart auction. In this video we tackle the rod bearings on the S54 engine. We decided to go with VAC coated rod bearings as well as the ARP bolts, watch the video to see why we chose this combo. During the process we also replaced the power steering hoses since they were leaking along with a bunch of other maintenance. You can find links to the parts used as well as other videos down below:
