Hey man, sorry...I haven't really been talking to any Muffler Shops, because I've been really busy at work.

I talked with Morse Mufflers last week though and they said they close at freakin' 5pm...wtf...how am I suppose to get work donw on the muffler let alone get an estimate?

I'm looking into getting X3 3.0si tips, those tips look sick...
I was just gonna install the tips myself and go to a Muffler shop later to adjust the exhuast to align it correctly.

I can give you the tips this week if you want.

You and Heui (Hugh) can come by my place if you guys want because I'll be working on my car all weekend

here's what I'll be doing this weekend:

Seafoam
Deep Creep
MAF Cleaner
Oil Change
Spark Plugs
install various OEM parts from Tischer: (M3 steering wheel, center console, shift gate, etc...)

and possibly install my Akebono brake pads to get ready for my CSL's

I want to paint my foglight holes and try to lower the rear a bit and Sillie said he'll help me out...lol. I will only be free on Sunday though

I have work on saturday and I don't think I can free up myself this saturday. I am more than happy to meet up with you and franco and others to have a DIY day. There's so much I want to do to my car cheaply...hehe.

oh, I love tofu. I love all kinds of tofu, dried, soft, soup, etc. How far is Franco's house from yours? I know if I drive fast, it takes me about 50 mins to get to your place..lol.

We should definitely do another DIY day if you can't make it Saturday...

We can install exhaust tips, do Seafoam, AND I notice your window trim is chrome as well.

Well, I'm planning a project to paint my chrome window trim black.

I plan on just taking off the trim and painting it with some SEM plastic paint.

I also plan on using SEM paint to paint my side moldings....Not what you think, I'm gonna be painting them black, lol. just so there's no more of that white hazy stuff on it

Plus after, we can have a photoshoot

edit: oh, I'll get some pics up tomorrow of the X3 3.0si tips...An employee here has one..I'll just bring my camera and take some pics lol.

You can get it at autozone. I think you should come down first before you buy it or something. Because everyone is painting black so i think they are splitting the paint. 1 can has more than enough to do 2 cars

Yea man, it would be the perfect time for changing pads
