Here's a question for you all. Percentage wise how happy are you with your car in terms of mods and maintenance you want done and are doing. I'll start I'd say I'm 60%

Got lot more I Want do to mine before I'm 100%

Nice jack! Shaun I need to order that touch up kit, do you recommend it?

I'd say I'm 80-90% there in this car. I want to keep it for a couple of years and change to a 330ci or maybe M3 where more of the money will go as it will be a long termer.

I probably want to do an I.C.E upgrade but keep the OEM head unit. And maybe an induction mod no thanks to Jim and then Eibach pro lines to drop the suspension a bit.

However every time I think I'm nearly there one of you lot do something to make me think twice!
