Maintanence/Mods to my car :D

Useless thread for you guys, no idea why I'm making it, more for myself tbh but I'm making it anyway.

Basically I'm going to make a list on here of all Maintenance, preventative or otherwise and mods done to my car. I will start basic now and as I either do more things or remember other things I've done I will update the list.

As I said, no idea why I'm posting this on here but anyway

Meh, it just means you've got a list to refer to when something goes wrong, or when someone asks the question

*Update*

I sorta lied previously, never had my rear shocks installed, had the fronts on for about 6 months or more but never actually installed the rears cuz I didn't have the RSMs. ECS RSM kit should be rockin up today but, will have the shocks in when I get them

Upgrades/Mods

ECS RSM Kit

Over here, freakin expensive.

Probably shitloads less over there. Remembering that E46 M3s still cost $80,000 - $45,000 over here ....

Full Catback Stainless Steel Twin Tip Remus Exhaust cost me $1600 fitted.

Are all cars more expensive, or just BMWs? For comparison, what does a Ford Focus cost in your area?

Damn, I didn't notice you were from "down under"

$1600 is the quote I got for brand new 18" VMR V710s with tires. Still looking for an exhaust solution, I can't just chop off the muffler it wouldn't feel right.
