Got my car back from Inspection I done on Monday with new spark plugs due to such low mileage they were fouled, new sunroof felt and deleted CDV.

On Tuesday I installed a new driver's side M3 sill, both inner door sills and a new dead pedal piece. I also did both my exterior B pillars. Once I get the right screw that's missing I will install a new seat side trim piece. Just cosmetics and while they weren't terrible, looks like a new car again. The only other 'bugging' piece is my driver's side window finisher...at $250 for the piece I am trying to avoid hating it. It's only popping out a little at the bottom at times when I close the rear side window...not torn or brittle yet.

Installed a BMW Performance Short Shifter Kit. I got it from ECS Tuning and suprisingly, it took me around 45 minutes. There are only three parts to swap, other than the knob and shift boot. There was just the white plastic bearing, the lever clip and the shifter itself. I did not have to remove any exhaust heat shield or anything under the car. Everything was pretty easy to access. I havn't taken it on the freeway yet but the shifts feel shorter (of course), and quite a bit stiffer. I should have done this mod a long time ago.

For the first since the car has been in the family, I cleaned inside behind the gas door. It was filthy!

Smile I did many things to my e 46 today

I put a HID 4300K kit for my backup lights.
Tinted all around %20 percent except rear ( will do that later with %5)
I replaced led 48 smd in my both trunk light.
I replaced led 48smd for driver and passenger floor lights.
Put my rear license plate in a dark plate cover ( just to piss #$% cops)
I bought a 2002 stock full tail-lights, and installed smaller pieces so far

Here are my pictures
