My car was 10 years old back in September, so I got her new brakes, Bridgestone Potenza tires, and ZHP reps. For Christmas, rear fog lights and led interior lighting.

FYI, in case you didn't know, those "motor" mounts are also E36 and E46. Same part#

I hope you ordered new nuts and also hope you're doing the transmission mounts as well (or wait do you have an automatic? i'm not sure if the m3 transmission mounts apply for the automatics)

Oh and Sweetness, is your phone auto-capping the first letter of every word for you? looks strange!

Yes Mango, I plan on doing the transmission mounts when the flowers start blooming again. And I did realize the motor mounts the other day...I like saying my way best, people think it's cooler!

I think so as well. Now I can't decide if I want to buy a go pro silver with some of my extra dough or not. Do they sell them at the Apple store?
