Bored at work: New Toy

Very bored at work but cant be bothered taking leave.

This just arrived today and took 2 min to install. Its actually a replacement glass not just a sticky cover

New year purchases:
19" GT-CX in hyper silver
Yokohama S.Drive 235/35 Front, 265/30 rear
Possibly eibach springs & BMW performance exhaust

Wife has only approved first 2 purchases. Think i can sneak in the eibach springs at the same time as the wheels
But the exhaust will be harder

I bought this early November from UK but the one they sent was cracked so they sent me a new one

Yeah i am seriously considering the exhaust. I have heard great things about the noise from the 325i

I need to keep the cost of the tyres under $1000 if possible
The PSS is $1248+shipping
Compared with the PzEro which is $888

have they got a RHD version of performance exhaust for 325i?

I think someone on this forum was doing it but it took a lot of work to get it right in terms of parts
