Well the turbo project is being stashed away but it's in a spot where I can't work on it, so that's got to wait until next spring. The DD is going to get #19 injectors + M30 AFM + cone filter + MarkD chip setup and maybe a throttle body bore. I did a DIY undercoating this past weekend, turned out pretty good we'll see how it holds up, winter tires are ready to go when it starts getting consitently cold, all you guys who put your winters on already are probably hating this 15 degree weather lol.

Full respray in diamantschwarz metallic
Smoked euro smilies and tails
blacked out kidneys
window trim is already black out!!!

Short shifter c/o richie
e36 steering rack and adapter

But I need opinions:
All black: valve cover, intake mani, plug wires, calipers, shift/ebrake boots?
Black with some blood red: crimson valve cover, intake mani, wires, calipers, and blood red stitching on black leather boots and steering wheel?

Reds always a nice touch, so long as its not too much more than stitching and valve covers

The winter project list is basically everything I didn't get around to doing in the summer.

Just like Rudy, I've gotta winterize the car:

I've installed the wires and switches for heated seats.
Install cloth heated seats and rear ski pass.
Winter mats.
Snow are going on next weekend.
Pull off the Hella and Autopal lights and go back to sealed beams.
"i" lip replaces "is" lip.

Then I've gotta buy all this crap for the spring for a fast all-in-one weekend install.

Poly rear shock mounts
Slotted front discs and racing pads
R-comps and rims
IE springs
Front strut bar
Rear subframe bushings
Rear control arm bushings

on the 540i:

pull motor/tranny, install new clutch/JB flywheel, upper oil pan gasket, rear main seal, find/fix power steering and coolant leaks, adjust steering box, new water pump, install euro smilies (will probably go HID as well) and GC coilovers as a gift to myself/victory lap if I actually accomplish everything above without ****ing anything up....

Oh boy..where could i start...

-New megasquirt box w/anti-lag
-possibly #60 injectors for big-boy boost next year
-wiring clean up(not a priority)
-My rack officially shiat the bed so probably an e36 rack swapshizzle
-Id really like to repaint the front end and fix the 2 dents in my Q pannel
-replace stupid sunroof that started to bubble
-M3 front brakes, I think imma need those
-Torn on what wheel to run next year, want wheels that can double as track wheels; also wanna throw some monies down on some good tires next year.
-Get the hooptie damn reliable enough so its track ready by spring(crosses fingers)

And if i can't resist the modbug to do anything to my 90' beater:

-GC's (softest rates possible) w/ Koni shocks
-I'm kinda itchy to own another 24v e30 but i'll try to keep my hands off this car
-A/C serivce (i think it kinda works now and it want it to work even better!!)
-Some epic ebay wheels, havent decided what yet.
