Thanks, hopefully I can pick it up next week unless some how everything gets done by tomorrow (which I doubt). Its in Alabama (4 hours away)

NOW....time for modding...I think I'm going to lower first. I'm going to TRY to stay away from performance modding for as long as I can for now.

Well I've always been a cosmetics person....so...all my cars modding have been in the following order:
1) Lower
2) rims
3) lip or body kit (which ever applies if applicable)
4) exhaust
5) intake
6) other performance mods....

Factory warranty good another 20k or 10/15/11

So after that I might start doing more things to it.

Yeah thats what I did, I stuck to cosmetics until my warranty goes up, which is in 2 weeks, my car was actually built in 2006. So now I have a box full of goodies sitting in my room and procede on the way.

Yea that's a great price for that intercooler. I know you wanted helix at first, have you looked at Wagner? It is very similar to the helix fmic.

Yea, I just checked the price. I was thinking it was much cheaper, I like how it replaces the IC piping though.

Nah it doesn't really work that way. The housing doesn't make the HIDs its the bulb/ballast/ignitor. So you would have to get all of that, which is a kit basically. I would suggest getting a PNP HID kit. All you have to do is plug the ballast/ignitor into the stock headlight harness and put the new bulbs in and you're done. It actually doesn't take long. (well I don't know about bmws but on japanese/american cars it doesn't take long) And this is if you are NON-HID. If you decide to get a kit get a good one. I suggest TECH-ONE. They are expensive but I have never had any problems with them and when I did it was always taken care of.
