Smile What did you do to your 1G Zuk today?

I've seen a post like this on the other forums to which I belong such as the Chevy Avalanche Fan Club of North America, BMW CCA forums and Bimmer forums. So let us know, what did you do to or for your Zuk or with your Zuk today?

I'll start off. Our daughter took over our '01 XL7 when she got her a license a couple years ago. Her jackrabbit starts and stops have taken their toll on the brakes and what's left of the front left pads have eaten into the rotor. So tonight I am replacing the rotors and brake pads. While I'm at it, I'm changing the oil with 5W-30 Mobile 1 high mileage and Mobile 1 filter and replacing the headlights with Silver Star Ultra XTE.

I hope I can get this done shortly before the snow hits tonight - 4"-10" predicted depending on the media outlet.

So that's I'm doing to our Zuk tonight, what are you doing to yours?

But yesterday as it was a beautiful sunny Oregon day I cleaned and vacuumed the interior and did an oil change.

I just ordered light bulbs for the HVAC controls and the gear selector. Here's to hoping I ordered the right ones. I'm pretty sure I ordered the correct lights for the HVAC system. The gear selector bulb is the wildcard.

Pulley came in today. I'm ready for the weekend. I hope I don't have to work.

I installed a cargo net
Whenever we opened the rear door, our stuff was falling off! Until I decided to do something about it. Unfortunately, my XL7 does not have cargo OEM hooks/d-rings at the sides, I had to get creative.

Frito. Did you check the FAQ thread on the light bulbs in question?
