My Ride: '02 330i/5 slicktop
Some updates:

- Had a misfiring issue (P1343) a couple of months ago that was traced to a bad coil. Swapped in replacement and it runs like a champ. Good power everywhere and perfectly smooth at speed; no vibrations at all from the engine, drivetrain or suspension.
- Replaced the rear tires about a month ago. The fronts are about a year old but still fresh. Thick rubber on all 4 corners is very nice.
- Tinted the windows last week. 40% all around:







I really like it. It helps with the heat, protects the interior and gives the car a hint of a more aggressive look.

Also, just installed this yesterday:



Love it, although it makes my scratched-up ashtray and storage cubby lids look pretty janky... Need to replace those, or at least scrub off the rubber coating. Ugh.

I really want to upgrade the lighting now. Xenons, clear corners and side repeaters and LED tails would perfectly complete the "look" I'm going for.
