    I agree with BMWCurves. My vote goes to black cube trim.

    Small update:

    146,000 miles
    Replaced the entire center console with brand new stuff and did an armrest delete.

    I also replaced both front hubs with new wheel bearings. I was hearing and feeling a loud humming coming from the front. I did the passenger side first thinking that was issue but it turned out to be the drivers side. Luckily I ordered 2 new ones!

    This winter I plan on tearing the performance brakes apart and having them powder coated and rebuilt with the better pistons and new seals. The current paint has definitely seen better days. I also need to find a set of 135i brakes for the rear and have them coated at the same time.

    The only update I have is that I put 135s on it and stored it.

    And I went to hear a possible S54 swap candidate start and run last night

    Your car doesn't look right with factory wheels- I realy like the way it looks with style 216 wheels.

    I agree. I really like 135s just not really on my car

    Small update! S54 has been purchased! I probably wonít have time for a lot of updates here. This likely wonít be a quick swap. Iíll update when big things happen though!

    For those of you that have done this before, any advice on things I should do before the engine goes in? Rod bearings, vanos, gaskets, etc are all on the list already but anything that isnít so obvious?

    Engine is from a 2003 M3 convertible SMG with 116k.
