wow those wheels really make a difference in looks. rear fogs a nice touch for safety. Your Touring looks very clean

I bought one of the first Dynavins to be released. They've come a long way, but I tell you the reverse camera feature is one of my favorites. so useful it surprises me every day.

It's not hard to do but if you don't know or confident in your ability it's best to play it safe. M3 steering wheel is about the best new feel inside the car there is. you're gonna love it!

This car has the sloppiest gear box. I think my pops old 92 1500 with the 3 foot shifter had less play in first
as I said above, other than steering wheel a good SSK is probably my favorite new feel for drivers feedback. I've installed the UUC one in a few of my BMWs and really liked them. if you can get the DSSR on discount same time go for it. the SSK will transform your shifting feel if its sloppy now. try to replace other bushings in system while you're down there to save time.
vanos seals rebuild one of the easier and big change in response from engine. your car is going to feel like a different car with vanos rebuilt and SSK

Yes, auto.

What is that? It seems that Chrome is blocking access to forums because of this:
