Might just need some time to settle.

Why did you chose to go the OEM route?

Got some 30 tint all around by Cutting Edge in Belair, Md., some ESM wheels that were on sale, did a little bit of polishing to the trim, some clear front reflectors, and installed my E46FANATICS.COM stickers. Been getting a little bit of noise from the front end lately. Put her on my buddy's lift. Looks like swaybar end links are in order, but since I'm planning on new shocks or full suspension I'm just gonna wait a couple weeks and do it all together. I wish I could have afforded tires and rims together. I would have definitely went with 18's. Maybe next year.

O2 Sensor came loose after 8 hour drive to my new house. Now I have to pay some one to fix it sense I was using someone elses tools. And a major lose of power Idk if it is because of the exhaust leak or what but not a good way to start out in a new state.

Realized I mixed up my precat bank 2 and postcat bank 1 O2 sensors - rerouted the wires properly, cleared the codes, and am now hoping that CEL doesn't come back.

Also ordered new spark plugs, an intake air filter, and cabin air filter for the car, which should be here sometime this week. I probably don't *need* them, but I figured it can't hurt, and at least now I'll know for sure that they were done

ordered new cabin air filter, air filter for the cold air, new mirror glass since 9 years of michigan winters took their toll, wiring harness for pass taillight since it burned out for the second time in 5 years, and have a 6k H.I.D kit waiting to be installed for my fogs along with a much needed oil change. also had a CEL that went in and out and has now been solid so I'm guessing its my 02 sensor(s) but need to get it scanned. Autozone does it for free right?
