Which aftermarket parts are you thinking? Brakes?

It's bad enough that one of my girlfriend's friends in Milpitas knows about this place's reputation for service
Super late reply: Yes, we do this. No old lady. Cept Mires.

Yeah. They look nice and perform well, but it's really not good for tracking with all of the issues.

Currently my 330i brakes/trailing arms are all okay. Should I swap to all m3 rear end stuff (trailingarms/brakes) ? or should I try and keep my 330i stuff to minimize extra spending?
I say M3 all the parts. You can always sell your old pieces as a way to recoup some expenses.
