On a side note I've just spent about $6000.00 on parts the last 2 weeks. Here's the list. No real pics yet since I'm overseas, but come May time I should have some. I'll have the shop take pics of the difference between parts.

Diff bushings, engine mounts, reinforcement kit (all pieces. I think I got the front pieces too.),fuel pump, fuel filter, thermostat, water pump, RTAB's, transmission mounts, subframe bushings, rear adjustable control arms, rear adjustable endlinks for swaybar, 3.23 LSD Diff from diffsonline, new front and rear spring rate for TC Kline setup, CF trunklid, Evo 3 SSK and DSSR and possibly a meth/alcohol kit.

I don't think I missed anything? Can anyone think of anything else I should get? Open to ideas.

Man, you are on a roll. I thought of something you missed, custom wide body to fit some big ass tires, especially in the rear. Something where you fit 300+ on an 11 or 12 inch wheel back there.

edit: And some M3 mirrors.

M3 mirrors yes. Good catch. I forgot about those things, lol. Widebody kit has been a debate for 2 years now. I just can't make up my mind on what to do? I've seen a lot of good stuff, but I don't know if I want to go all out and get a full kit or just flare out the fenders some more to fit wider tires.

I think it should be something subtle with just flaring the fenders out. I'm not a fan of the all out kits where the body is pushed out completely around the wheel wells.

Something like this is just too much:

Yeah, but in the same aspect, in order to fit 3xx tires it would look tacky with just the wheel wells flared? IMO. IDK. Don't get me wrong, I would love to fit 3xx on a 330. I guess its good for now. I don't even think its worth a widebody kit/power ratio.


I thought if I did go the full kit route it would be something like this, but black, of course. Just the bottom pieces. Nevermind the roof spoiler and eyelids.





Or something borderline suttle would be something like this. I know the pic is an M3, but imagine that on a 330

Here's some new mods I'll be putting on in the next month. Mmmmm....

Trailing arm bushings



Engine/Transmission mounts






Evo3 SSK



Forgot the rates, but I think I remember getting #600 and #700




Solid Diff Bushings



Rear Adjustable Control Arms



Rear Adjustable Endlinks (swaybar)



Maybe this. Its sitting on standby if I want to.

Oh the Mycarr ones I previously had, some of the LEDs just started burning out. You know the LEDs that last forever? Haha. I bet it got to hot for them and they decided to retire. Lucky for lifetime warranty!! Pics? Everyone knows what Angel Eyes look like! Unless you're class of '10.

Have you posted pics in here before? I didn't think you had, but wanted to be sure.
