My Ride: 01 330Ci "Mia"
Meet Mia: My 2001 BMW 330Ci

Hey guys! So after the tragic loss of my last BMW, I have bought Mia. Mia has been a great car. I bought her on June 24th for under $5k. She is a two owner Steel Grey 330Ci. I bought her with just under 97k miles and we just crossed 100k over the weekend. Please feel free to weigh in on my list.

Things I moved over:
- 30mm front sway bar
- calipers, rotors, pads (PFC-Z)
- M3 Steering wheel
- M3 seats
- Black center console
- Aux supported radio and asssociated bluetooth
- Electric Fan conversion
- LED Tail lights
- LCM supporting 3-touch blink and BFD
- M3 motor mounts
- Z4M control arm bushings
- Indy 500 tires (was on 700TW tires)

Mods / maintenance I've since done:
- Mini D2S 4.0 bi-xenon projectors
- Removed the walmart alarm
- attempted header install and in return has exhaust leak (need to tighten them!)
- Brake flush
- Thermostat, upper rad hose, 1.4 bar coolant cap, water pump, expansion tank (I'm covered!)

Mods literally sitting waiting for a purpose:
- My old muffler in my trunk
- My Beisan VANOS upgrade with 1k miles on it
- M50 manifold... I may sell this
- UUC 24mm rear sway bar
- a bunch of headliner fabric
- a surprise in the interior trim department
- CAS keyless entry from E90...
- Spare DME
- Tie rods

Things I need to address:
- Fix stock suspension, although it's pretty tight. I'm in talks...
- Address the oil pump nut issue....This is the big one on my mind
- Manual swap
- Subframe reinforcement - the other big one
- Get transmission bushings since they sheared in half on Sophia
- Diff bushings are shot to hell
- Decide what I'm going to do for RTAB's
