Well I don't have a car yet lol but I have bought for an E30 325i:

White gauges with a higher reading on the tach
an M badge on the tach
reads 260 on the speedo
and light up red

Clear chrome sidemarkers like the ones on the E36, im gonna put these on once I do a body kit

and clear bulbs for front turn signals

I'm probably getting the shocks and springs off of my dad's M3 when he buys new ones this spring (this will lower the car about 35mm I've heard)
I'm gonna wait till I buy a 325i before I buy anthing else though

When you put your blower on how much boost are you going to run? And are going to drop the compession?

Baby was dynoed and timed (1/4 mi.) before we started to mod her. She turned 15.1 @ 94 mph, and her run on a Mustang Dyno had her at 222 rwHP & 242 ftlb.

We plan on a dyno run in between the supercharger and the 6 Speed to see the difference between the automatic transmission and the manual transmission. There will be a final dyno run when all is said & done. (gotta have the numbers for the bragging rights:) )

As far as compression, we are planning on 7 lbs. boost until the bugz get worked out. (no one has blown and converted a 7 before). ESS does offer a Stage 2 (intercooler, dished pistons, cams, etc.) unit in Europe, but I want to take it one step at a time. Being married with kidz, means having to watch where the $$ goes. Most wives get "funny" about dropping large $$ into engine mods. :rolleyes:

So the Stage 2 stuff will probably be done in 2003, assuming the mods we are doing this month hold up well.

Wow sounds like you got your stuff all planed out, you got some big work a head of you. Maybe you should sell the wife and kids that would solve the money and nagging problem. J/K:D
I want to know how every goes keep us up dated.
