Okay, first of all I'll admit that this is a blatant steal from Bimmerforums.com However, I think that it is an excellent idea. Reading through their thread, I found that reading about what other owners are doing to their car every day (anything from cussing at it because it won't start, to rebuilding something major, or just thrashing it) is extremely motivating. I can't read that thread for five minutes without running out to the car to try something new.
This thread will probably contain a combination of technical information, and plain schenanegans, so I'll let the ModGods decide which section it belongs in.
To start this off, this is not what I did today, but rather over the weekend. I started out by cleaning and rearranging the garage so I'd have room to work.
Then, I moved my Baby in out of the cold (well, actually into a different kind of cold, because my garage isn't heated).
Next, I pulled the existing cooling system (radiator and surround removed as one piece).
Then I pulled both front struts for a little refresh.
