Some quickies...




Planning on doing the following (in no particular order):

-Louder exhaust
-B/W cf BMW logos (front and back)
-Figure out a way to black out the chrome trim around the windows
-New shifter nob and short shifter
-Maybe some software/chip tweaking to get a little extra oomph
-Remove CDV (I HATE that thing!)
-Do something about the lack of Sirius satellite radio in the car
-Install Aux input (at least until I figure out what I'm doing about Sirius)
-New tires (two of them need replacing soon anyway)--not sure what I'm going with
-Stiffer sway bars
-Would like to clean up the wheels a bit as they have a bit of curb rash on them
-Paint the calipers (not sure what color--probably red)
-Replace the bits and pieces in the car which could use it (had 57k miles when I got it--nothing major wrong but a few scratches)
-Do gray inserts in seats

I'm sure I'll think of more at some point. Just going to do a little here and a little there. This way I'm not breaking the bank to do it all.

Thanks a bunch. I like it so far. As you can see, I've got a little laundry list of things I want to do.
