    - Had my live data values evaluated again. I guess things are normal now Now tracking down strange sounds here and there to tighten everything up.
    - Bought some genuine BMW rubber floor mats for the front only; don't use the back enough to warrant spending the extra dough.
    - Also finally forced myself to refresh the center console plastic and reroute the aux while I was there. Added a new usb power outlet as well.DIY coming soon. Can you guess what I removed?

    Center console looks great! Did you just sand and paint it?

    Looks great. Nice location for those ports.... far enough back on the console to be out of site and out of the way. My port is in the ashtray and it's a PITA when I have a wire hooked up...

    Thanks man, yeah I think I could have made it look more professional, but for my purposes it works. Good thing is I can put a better plastic plate cover on there in the future if I want. DIY here --> http://www.zhpmafia.com/forums/showt...utlet-retrofit

    Installed angel eyes last night. Big shout out to @Rovert and The Angel Eye Guy for the deal. Jumped on the 30% off group buy deal.
    Decided on the turn signal method switchbacks (They flash amber with the turn signal and when locking/unlocking the car.)
    Went standard instead of opaque per Trevor's recommendation; they blend in better inside the headlight when the lights are off.

    Ambers did work at first, spoke to Joey (the angel eye guy) and we concluded it was that the wire tap didn't pierce through the insulation.

    Again, shout out to Trevor for the idea of the wire loom. Really makes everything blend into the engine bay.

    Cool! I knew you'd like them !
    Can you make a video of the amber coming on with the turn signal? I'd like to see that in action...
