Any plans for Spring Projects on your D?

I know winter is still here but we are getting closer to spring with each day that passes. Is anyone planning something new for their D this spring? New tires? New rims? JBD? Suspension work? Etc?

Tell us what you're up to!

Where are you getting the M3 replica front? Are you replacing the base front or M-Sports. Also are you Pre-LCI or LCI?

Often I wish I were back in Deutschland where I could drive my 335d at a more appropriate velocity. Oh well.

Where are you buying the grilles? Do they sell matte black too?

Getting my final two pieces of the M3 suspension parts is what inspired this topic for me. I'm looking to do a complete suspension overhaul in March with the following M3 pieces. The Megan Racing toe arms are the only non-M3 upgrade:



Front sway bar

Front lower wishbone/control arm (L)

Front lower wishbone/control arm (R)

Front tension strut (L)

Front tension strut (R)

Adjustable front sway bar end links



Rear sway bar

Rear subframe bushings - (front, 2X)
- (rear, 2X)

Rear guide rod (L)

Rear guide rod (R)

Rear upper link/wishbone (L)

Rear upper link/wishbone (R)

Adjustable rear sway bar end links

Megan Racing toe arms

Well I just ordered by JBD, can't wait till I get it. I also ordered a gloss black 335d badge. Once bimmian.com has the space grey reflectors in stock I'll grab a pair, now I just need to find a place that will do my summer wheels.

A slick set of BBS CH Blacks wrapped in a set of new Contis for my D. Maybe a JBD too, we'll see.
