Probably talking about the cluster faces. 8000K bulbs can be found anywhere... And most people wouldn't want them anyway

the gauge was bought from ebay. by infinite360usa or something. the instructions were terrible and not for the right car but nonetheless were easy to install if you know what wires to tap into.

Finished installing my engine mounts (these) last night and took the car for a drive.

I am very impressed. The throttle response is much crisper, and the engine doesn't budget at all even under load. At a stop and when cruising normally, the NVH is identical to stock -- very smooth for a high performance mount. When I get on the throttle, particularly at higher RPMs, I can hear the engine a bit better. But IMO it sounds awesome -- really aggressive. Almost like the CSL sound.

Best of both worlds. Smooth and quiet (well as quiet as an M3 can get) when I want it to be, and just absolutely driving bliss when I'm having fun on the mountain roads.

I just ordered a complete cooling system for my car. A new Stewart water pump, Behr radiator, OEM expansion tank kit, OEM hoses, belts, tensioners (including the hydaulic tensioner upgrade), thermostat, trans themostat, aux fan switch, bleed screw, a gallon of BMW antifreeze and a Bosch electric fan so I can get rid of the clutch fan.

I figured I might as well replace everything now since I have almost 107k miles on it and it is all stock. I didn't really want to do it in the winter time but I am hoping one of my dealers will allow me to use their lifts.

It should all be here in a week or so... Guess I'll be waiting on the Dynavin unit until Spring!

Honestly the lights you put in are a downgrade and are dangerous. Might cause an accident. I'd instead install some decent stuff.
