Feb 25 Do It Yourself (DIY) Program Overview
The 2011 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.

I signed up a few days ago through MotorSportReg, but never got any confirmation. Could someone please provide a list of all the approved jobs?

Hi guys. I'll try to change the transmission fluid again on Saturday. Unfortunately, last time I stripped the slot of the fill plug and had to give up. I'm about to purchase a bolt extractor set http://www.harborfreight.com/9-piece-38-drive-metric-bolt-extractor-sockets-67894.html

If anyone has a different extractor set, could you please bring it with you in case mine doesn't work for some reason??

FANTASTIC time today at NW BMW. Everyone had a great time and got a lot accomplished....including traveling over to another BMW dealer to get a part that was not in stock! And driving all the way from California just to participate!!!

Great effort by everyone.
