I just spent a lot of money on my car this week:

$180 - Euro Airbox
$ 48 - K&N Filter
$ 30 - Intake Silencer delete
$246 - Eibach Springs
$647 - Bilstein Shocks
$1151 before installation

There goes the bonus I said I wouldn't spend.

Now I need to get spacers.. and the AA tune, and maybe I will call it a summer.

E90 is going to Peabody tomorrow for routine service and inspection. Booked the appointment a couple of weeks ago with my SA and asked for "something fun" as a loaner. Let's see what I get.

E90 is at Tulley for the 3rd time with a service engine light. They're awful, but too close to go elsewhere.

CCWs are being anodized and assembled, shipping by the end of the week.

Tim's sending subliminal messages again. Once you go coils, you never go back. That's the saying, right?

I feel like there's an inverse correlation between the amount of time I spend on the forums and the size of my wallet Let me know if you need a hand installing anything though. I'd be happy to help.

Last time I said that, I got a civic loaner. I hope you fare better.

I do pretty much everything, just please don't ask me to replace a headgasket. I recently finished one on my e36, install went fine, but I severely underestimated the amount of beer and bloody knuckles required to keep my sanity.

I can vouch for Rob....he does try to do every mod on his car himself. He also does a great interior carbon fiber wrap

Someone tell me what summer rubber to buy. For some reason, I'm struggling to buy Hankook or Continental (brand snob!), but they seem right relative to price and performance ratings.

Looks like the F1 Eagles are getting EOL'd, which is why I'm replacing the set i have right now. :mad:

The price on the BF Goodrich's are hilarious, and performance looks great, but people are complaining about noise...

This should be easier!

Why are you not considering the RE-11s?

SG E90 335 with 5k miles, pretty sweet. Couldn't make it to the dealer by closing tonight so I'm keeping it an extra day. Not complaining, SA hooks me up every time.

Eastside Motoring in Waltham will come in much cheaper than that, but they're always very busy and sometimes can't fit you in for a couple of weeks.

Reluctantly picked up my car tonight after the gym, enjoyed time with the loaner but missed 6MT. This morning, I had to literally stop and think about why my left foot was mashing into nothing when tried to start it up.

In other news, 6-12" of snow on Friday? WTF. Must be those asshat meteorologists playing an April Fools joke. Not funny.

I'll do a suspension install for $200.

Tulley BMW contacted BMW USA for further troubleshooting on my reoccurring engine light. They're replacing the O2 sensors this time.

They don't make the rear sizing i'm after (at least tirerack isn't listing it).

235 35 19 F

I was surprised to see the Pirelli PZero Neros are rated higher than most of the true summer tires for performance even though they're an all season. I haven't ruled them out. They actuall appear to have a pretty aggressive tread.
