I love the khaki gold... it's so rare, especially in the mod world... Clean, love it!

Also, I love the chain-link like shadow from the poles on the hood and just the location for these photos...good stuff.

Does any of you touring guys have the 6 disc changer bracket kit that you are not using laying around? If so please let me know. Apparently BMW has disconituned the bracket kit.

It's funny... people who drive anything expensive often get labeled by folks who drive less expensive cars. I have found, without exception, that douchebags cover all demographics and incomes. You can be an douchebag in either a Echo or an Escalade.

My Ride: station wagon
is it a different bracket than a sedan would use? or could you get the sedan bracket and modify it slightly if it is only a little different?

According to ETK the bracket is different from the wagon to the sedan. I need to see both brackets to see if I could modify one.

BMW uses two different brackets for the standard amp and HK amp. And there is a different bracket for cars with Nav.

So after some more research I've decided to get the Bilstein Sport shocks for Sport/Lowered springs

Also while Im going to replace my shocks, other than the rear shock mounts what other things should I purchase

Thanks
Jack

Front strut bearings
Spring pads
Rear protection tubes
Front reinforcement plates

I'm at 120k, I might as well look into these parts as well.
I'll go OEM for these

Thanks
