    Bought a bench belt sander to true up the flanges on the headers. RYobi was $148 at Home Depot, every other sander costs more for some reason. 80 grit worked extremely well. Didn’t have to take off too much material. Both flanges are flat. Used 2 different levels and a flat MDF board to check. Won’t have exhaust leaks plus I’ll be using MAHLE multi steel gaskets.

    It is great. I recommend it. I bought it from www.motorsporthardware.com. I just upgraded the nuts and got them today. Super fast service and reasonably priced.
    I have a wheel stud hanger that I bought before but just didn’t quite work for me. Your car is an F30 3 series as I recall? I would buy a single M14x1.25 stud hanger which is cheaper than buying a kit. I bought mine on Amazon as well.

    For brake bleeding, a little teflon tape on the bleeder threads really helps.

    wouldn't you have to pull the bleeder screw right out to get the teflon tape on the threads?
    By then, gravity will have mostly bled the brakes for you
