    Failed smog because I forgot when you disconnect the battery it resets the obdii and needs a drive cycle. Passed smog the following day after the drive cycle.

    First mod was a radar detector mirror mount after hitting 90 thinking I was doing 55. I like how clean it looks. Could be better but good enough. I will head to AAA tomorrow morning to take care of title, taxes, and registration.

    Dead due to damaged valve. We will save her soul for future use, but the body will go to car heaven...or another owner...who may or may not turn her into a race car...

    Time to update your sig pic
    Definitely. Once I get her cleaned up I'll snap a photo and update the sig. So far just been enjoying sitting in traffic so the decision to buy the DCT was a good one. It's definitely a boat in comparison to the e46 and even the f80.

    Purchased gloss black kidney grilles, side grilles, and some air filters. Going to be attempting the side grills/air filters sometime this week as time permits. I really need to go drive it on some back roads rather than cruising in traffic. However, it does quite well in traffic and is comfortable to just relax while driving home.

    I sold the Mercedes E320 this past week so now can focus on this car going forward. I have been looking into exhaust tips, powder coating wheels, or trading my 343M wheels in black for the std 343M wheels in silver. I need to list on a m5 forum because craigslist and FB have gone nowhere. Guess I could sell outright after purchasing something else but don't know how realistic it is to find something I like that isn't super duper expensive.

    Dirty monster truck with new side grilles. I'm waiting to hear back from Modbargains on a replacement set. Not sure stocked about their customer service but shall see.

    Found sharpie hiding a scratch on a new set of side grilles that weren't cheap. I'll see if they replace but right now they've just said they'll check with the product provider...um...yea not getting anymore of my business unless they fix that.

    I typically shop on Turner, ECS (guess the same now), or Autohausaz.com but branched our because ECS sent me the wrong stuff and didn't have a replacement.

    Mod queue:
    CF rear diffuser
    CF RK style lip
    KW HAS
    Either trade wheels for standard silver or powder coat
    Or BBS or HRE rims but I tend to like the OEM wheels
    Exhaust tips (need to figure out how to remove the black ones)

    I need input on some wheel choices...

    All 20" rims because I just bought new tires and want to keep the compliant ride

    Option 1: refinish my OEM 343M wheels to Silver


    Option 2: Vorsteiner VFF-103


    Option 3: Vorsteiner VFF-105


    Option 4: HRE FF01


    Option 5: Others?

    Yea, that's been my go-to option. I was trying to find someone to trade in LA/SD but haven't found anyone that wants to trade for black.

    Refinishing is going to cost $700-800? because they've been previously powder coated which is why I started to look into new wheel options. Normally it would have been $500ish but removing old powder coat takes time/costs more?
