Do It Yourself (DIY) Program Overview

The 2010 Do It Yourself (DIY) program allows National Capital Chapter (NCC) BMW Car Club of America (CCA) Members to work on their own cars under the supervision of expert mechanics and technicians provided by the DIY Sponsor. The purpose of the DIY is to learn and practice proper maintenance and repair techniques that you can routinely complete within a two-and-one-half-hour (2.5 hour) time period.

There are typically several NCC members who can assist you when an extra pair of hands or advice is needed. We are happy to show newcomers the joys of working on your own car. Most events start at between 8 am and 9 am and typically finish at 3 pm. Lunch for the event is provided by the club.

The DIY Program Webpage is here http://www.nccbmwcca.org/content.php?119-diy

This event offers online registration and payment through MotorsportReg.com.

Just wanted to thank everybody that helped organize this excellent DIY, specially the people from Curry (Chris Coulter - VP, Chris ..... - Manager of the Arlington shop, all the friendly techs), and Oscar, Duane, and others I may not remember their names from the DIY Committee and Coordinators.

We had plenty of lift time, unlimited help/assistance from the Curry staff, camaraderie environment among the participants, good food, etc.

To top it off, with the work done at the DIY my transmission is now buttersmooth after replacing the fluid with Redline MTL oil.

Sorry, but it's Red Line, two words. Just a pet peeve of mine that I can't seem to break. Just like brakes are used for stopping, not breaks.
