Yea, as long as I can get my new stuff installed

I've never gone the cosmetic route, but decided to give it a shot.

If you need help shoot me a pm. I've done tunes, dp's, fmic's, meth kits, intakes, oil & spark plug changes, catch cans, etc.. myself.

Once you memorize the tune it becomes second nature, can remove it from start to finish in 20 minutes.

I'm noob when it comes to cosmetics. I've got the m3 bumper and skirts coming. Also picked up a set of those front perches that is supposed to drop it about a 1/4-1/2 inch. Not sure if it'll be noticeable or not. I'd really like a full drop, but I'm not sure if it would affect my 1/4 mile yet (may improve I don't know, haven't done any research).

I want to do a gloss black wrap on the top, but haven't found anyone in Pitt yet.

It's a start

as far as the suspension goes, a proper drop will increase trap times.
And as far as the wrap goes... let me know when you want it done, my buddy owns his own business doing paint protection and wraps.

Drive to NJ? Why not German Auto Werks in the Strip?

Why would you buy a car like a BMW and not work on it yourself? Not trying to flame but half of you guys seem to want to pay/drive/etc to pay a premium to have someone else work on the car.

Am I missing something?

Unfortunately, after moving up, I do not have the luxury of a big garage, lots of tools, lift, etc.
