Yeah be careful with that....have to stop it before you hit the track and make sure its done dripping. That's why I like the water station, it's done dripping by the time I line up again.

Jesus christ this is just insane....I know others have had the same issue, but I also just cannot see how the belt gets ingested through the front main seal, there is so little gap there!

Exactly right, except jack the car up before loosening the nuts. I find it easiest to push at the top of the strut if you can reach under the wheel well. Might be easiest with a 2nd set of hands.

No, I don't think it can be, or at least it wont be easy at all. You can just put a jack under it real quick and do it with the tires still on, doesn't take long

Like said above, push struts toward engine bay to get a little more camber, but to get a lot more, you will need camber plates. You can get -3 to -3.5deg or more with plates and the M3 control arms.

You could do this and then weld a venturi bung onto the ********* and route the PCV down to the there so you are always scavenging. Might clog the cats eventually though.
