I just washed her yesterday and realized I haven't taken any pictures in a while. Recently had the transmission fluid changed, and wrapped the chrome trim in vinyl. Have a few more things planned like mtech2 bumpers and keeping up with maintenance, otherwise I'm very satisfied with the car.













And here are some pictures when I picked her up almost 2 years ago.

I got it off ebay from a guy in Germany that refurbishes wheels. His user name is tainik and the quality of his work is amazing.

Love the all red tails... your car is so clean. Tainik is the one who did my alcantara wheel. Not a fan of 5s on an e 46 IMHO

Yes I swapped the stock lever for the z4 shift lever. I love how much shorter the throws are.

Can't find a link, but I got it from Tainik on ebay. I'm sure he can make one if you send him a message.
