He has a group buy going on right now for the BMW Performance exhaust which will fit your car.

For wheels & tires in GTA Simply Tire or Tires23 (in Mississauga). Tirerack.com can also be cheaper in a lot of cases for wheels and/or tires even taking into account shipping and duty. Both of the above GTA shops carry BMW replica rims if you're looking for alternatives that are a little cheaper.

Just my $0.02 but I would think twice about 19" or 20" if you're driving around Toronto. Wheels like that look great & are fine for San Diego or Miami but up here every pot hole on even 17" feels like a bomb went off under your car, especially if you're sticking with run flats.

Enjoy the new car!
www.bimmian.com has a lot of cool stuff. They are in Oshawa. I have 19 and definitely would not go to 20". I'm Losing the RFTs when snow melts. You should check dealer for snow tires as they are on sale now at all dealerships. If not then find some elsewhere and have them mounted at dealership for delivery.
