Purchased a parrot 3000ck kit and quick connector harness. Can't wait to arrive so I can install, while I'm at it. Thinking of getting this also http://www.crutchfield.com/p_469BMWA...i.html?tp=1672. Hopefully it turns out like I expect.

What is your price range? There are a decent amount of replica wheels selling on eBay for ~$500

Lightweight rims are a great option for losing the rotational mass they will held with acceleration an handling as well. Don't go above 18 inch unless you want to sacrifice ride quality, handling, acceleration, and you are more likely to get flats.

My Ride: Imola ZHP
Finally got around to my fluids change (working overnights this week), I was able to get the oil change done, but realized I forgot the distilled H2O at the house, so I couldn't switch my expansion tank. Also couldn't figure out how to rig up a way to change the trans fluid. I guess I'll have to go buy a pump...

Vacuumed and armoralled inside, re-plasti-dipped my front tow hook, pulled the rear wheels off to inspect for rubbing, found a few spots on the inside, beat on them with a hammer and decided to go ahead and re-undercoat the fender-wells. While putting the wheels back on I realized that one of my rear 19's is bent on the inside (awesome) and looks like she's rubbing on the outside worse than the inside (inside wasn't bad at all). So I need to roll my fenders, awesome...

If its not one thing, its another!

Hope to complete the expansion tank and coolant flush tomorrow night. Hopefully the trans fluid change too...

Serdar, for being 15 I'm impressed with your taste.

Your father taught you well

My Ride: 2003 325xi
RIP my '03 325xi. Head gasket went the other day, what a shame. I didn't even get to say good bye haha

I was driving my brothers car going down the shore for the weekend since my car had yet another cooling issue. While he was driving it he heard some knocking and eventually smoke. He said they stopped at a light at the top of a hill and the car wouldn't move, no power. They had to roll it to a service station not too far away. I was so close to getting rid of that, now I can't even trade it in for anything

HG is like an hour long DIY if it's not locked up. Easy fix.

$1500, I've got an engine for it too, just in case!
