I really want to put on an M-Tech II rear bumper, short shift kit, cooling system overhaul (will come first). I really want to put on an aftermarket exhaust, too.

what about you Trick, anything new for you?

Got my trunk on last week.





Still need to adjust it a bit and get the emblems on.
Debating if I should paint it or not.

Paint the back of it, but leave the top and lip exposed and just do a layer of clear over it. Or, paint the whole thing, but leave the top of the lip exposed.

I just did this. Super easy DIY. took about 4 hours start to finish including clean up and I was alone. I used this DIY: http://www.bmw330ci.net/maintenance/completecoolant.php and ordered this kit with all but the belts: http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462.

Also if you piece your kit together be sure to get the temp sensor. That bastard has an o-ring on it that WILL leak if you try to reuse it. If you need a hand let me know. Rock on.

I'm thinking to do it. How much does it cost to get all the parts?

Thanks! I might take you up on that. I am trying to price out the best deal, that actually seems like it might be it. Any tips on OE brake pads? I was thinking of hitting up Pelican for those.

Thank you for that link. I am definitely going to overhaul my cooling system soon!
