buying time

Well the dollar is about to go back up IMHO and I need to get the next round of orders ready. I've picked the meth kit, have a short list of suspension bits, but I think its time for a different look. So I am thinking of gloss black grills and thoughts chaps.

Yeh gloss black will be good... will match your current shadowline window trim.

But even if the dollar is really low, grilles aren't going to break the bank?

What suspension did you have in mind?

On the black grills, I have been thinking of getting the original gloss black grills for an e92 too.

Where are you getting them from? If you are getting it soon, maybe we can share the shipping cost?
