bunch of tools.
an old guitar stand can be easily modded to make a very effective steering wheel stand and can be picked up for almost nothing at resale shops or garage sales.

replacing stock speakers
wanted Infinity speakers but the installer said our doors are too shallow so he recommended Polk Audio's as everyone seems to go with them instead.
so i'll be getting all stock speakers replaced with Polk Audio's that will be going to an aftermarket amp and already have a 2din kenwood unit installed
gonna have a sub wire pre ran as well
gonna cost me $900
should be worth it though, with my kenwood 2din i find stock speakers wayyy to quiet

my new years plan will be most effective however
-having VCGs and VANOS done finally
-subwoofer/amp set up
-replacing my AE's, still have shitty weisslicht angel eyes and the color does match any of my lightning since i've switch to LEDs, probably going with Uminitza Opaques
-hopefully wifey gives in on eBay headers

then last to my next year wishlist is mtech II kit, my rear bump has been marked up since i got the car years ago but i've been waiting for the opportunity to fix it with an insurance claim

then most likely i'll be putting her on the market so i can get myself an E60 M5

Cool topic, I mainly asked for new diagnostic tools. A new OBD2 stand alone scanner, fuel pressure gauge set (including Bosch CIS mechanical injection adapter), vacuum gauge set, new DVOM with duty cycle, compression tester with thread in fittings, and a new GoPro hero3 since I live less than an hour from the Nurburgring and well we all know you cant just go to watch from the sidelines. I just hope they don't go go completely bankrupt and close down before spring comes around.

Oh yeah, and a shirt with a picture of a bunch of different security bit type screws that says "I void warranties" and a coffee mug for work that says "coffee makes me poop"

i don't want to receive the loyal Dynavin lashing but for the price i'd look at doing a different 2din, you can get the newer Kenwood 2din for that price and it's apparently the fastest 2din on the market
cost me $1200 on eBay and prof install price of $600 works great.
boot times good and reads portable USB hard drives
fill one of those up with movies/music vids then have a second one for music
tried Dynavin before and it was slow, outdated and didn't read my hard drives it did read the odd usb stick tho

Get an oil drain plug cover too. You need one body clip and the cover. These are always missing.

Oil leak. VCG leaks onto exhaust manifolds and smokes when it gets hot.

That's exactly what I thought but today I drove my car around the block literally less then a mile, I come home and smoke was coming from like the back of the engine and the top right near the SAP rather then just the valve cover seal. And after driving for such little time it was a lot of smoke and a very strong smell.. It seems a little worse then just the vcg
