    Instead of getting new wheels why don't you just refurbish the stock ones and paint them. When's the next video of project z3.

    Unnecessary mechanic work. The cars was not designed to be so low. A lot of risk on the road. Don't do it.

    Ethan would rather pay Kwikfit, They'd sell him a set of tyres then charge him extra for supplying his own parts. OMG it's painful to watch him working on a car.

    Let's get the Haynes manual and torque to spec....or we could just snap the bolt with the impact to make an example and make him learn from it.

    11:20 had the same thing with my Ram 2500 and had to buy a new hub, only I was taking the bolts off when several of them broke because that's just the way things go when you're working on a 22 year old truck in Minnesota

  • Matthew Bruerton

    all part of the fun ethan! I just spend 3 days pulling the entire knuckle, hub, axle etc out of my truck just to discover the issue was a shagged drive flange xD

    I have BMW Z3, i install coilovers... the way how you done is terrible.... use "gun" to tighten bolts... what you expect? cut the springs... there is just 4 bolt to change springs...

    If you really want to challenge Ethan, get him to replace an Insignia power steering fluid pipe. Chinese contortionists struggle with that job. Yes I drive an Insignia, I'm poor.

    Best advert NOT to do this yourself! Lol.

    That bolt snapping was completely Garrett's fault, he did say "more", the fuck did you expect, him to say "Nah, I know for a fact that's too much, I'm done."?

    Mike Brewer legend 💯

  • cookiemonsta212

    They are really messing with ethan lol, should've tought him about using hand tools first tho and then later went to the gun as if he doesn't know how tight to put it by hand then he's definitely going to break bolts the first few times he uses the gun.... and how did it take you guys 10 hrs to do a brake job and change out springs lol, did this on a car for the first time and it only took me like 2 hrs to do all the springs and then another 30 mins to do the brakes lmaoo (the car I did it on was also a pile of rust)

    Loved this and totally get Ethan’s frustration. But please cut the innuendo Alex, it’s not funny and it’s embarrassing when watching the video with my teenage kids.

    Yet, that's luxury to wrench in a warm garage with space between the car and walls! Also be able to make loud grinding without being reported.

    Mike Brewer has a tool kit!? Is it still in the packaging from Halfords??

    This series is amazing and a brilliant idea! Can't wait to see him rebuild the engine in a future video!

    you have all those tools there but no welder? see if you had had a welder you could have welded the the bolt head back on and then slowly undone the bolt like that. it isnt easy and doesnt always work, but more often than not it will be your only job and take about 10-15 minutes

    on the one side i hate shit like that , because i feeal it like it was me ... but on the other side it is ethan....soooo... still kinda hurts

  • soundseeker63

    I feel like Ethan deserved way more respect than he got here. This is quite an involved job even for an experienced DIYer. For a newbie it was probably quite daunting - guys should have been more supporting of that, he did good for a first time job!... The Ethan of 3 years ago wouldn't have even attempted such a thing, so credit where it's due, he has grown as person. Maybe not a true car guy just yet, but well on his way.

    I feel very proud of Ethan and his progress! Great video guys

    Proper torque for everything: tighten until you hear a snap, then quarter turn back
