    Talking Car upgrade stage 1


    Thanks to G-Man I have some nice SEVENTEENS on the Bimmer!

    Here are a few before and after shots. Now I just need to buy 2 tires for the front and put them away for the winter. Blizzax are going on the stock rims this week!

    No need for new pads... Just take off the indicator tabs When the grinding that is your caliper against the rotor starts... Get new pads... and new rotor... and new caliper

    Its not the indicators, the brake pads are brand new. They are a full race compound, and they make lots of noise if you dont get them VERY hot on a fairly regular basis.

    Gman,

    They cleaned up better than I thought they would! There is corrosion that will not come out, so I will probably send them out to be refinished and cleared over? Even with the cost of that it was still a super deal, glad to free up space for you !

    They look super! Thanks!

    Stage 2 upgrade just purchased !!! Not too Shabby for $70. Bolts right in without any mods even the bulb assemblies plug right in, so there is no need to re-wire anything! Woohoooo

    10 lug rims... gotta love it

    oh god... please tell me you're joking w/ the lights......

    what does it already have done to it? I say you should buy some HRE rims (jk, that'll cost more than the car ) , paint the sideskirts, bumpers etc, 3.63 diff w/ 60% lock-up, turner chip if you don't already have one, ///M3 cams.... what else.... i'm sure i'll think of more

    I am not going to be dumping a whole lot of $ into the car, just enough to help it's appearance and will just be driving the hell out of it.

    The car already needed a new tail light due to a small break in the break light housing that I made a quick fix to get it to work. How long it will last is unkown but I was planning on replacing the assembly and this route is cheaper than buying one OEM assembly and looks 100% better ! IMO

    I am looking to replace the front bumper ( the one on the car is broken a little) with an aftermarket M3 or custom I have already found and have it and the remainder of the body work painted to match the rest of the car along with the M3 spoiler Chris gave me! I even have a freind that is going to help me paint it for free and does great work... I am just waiting till after the holidays when I can gather up extra $$$ for it... Not too much happening to the car other than that. Everything depends on what and when I can afford for her..
