Wow you've got a lot planned! Where can you find the GM rep cheaper than the other two? I've always thought about installing an intake but I don't know if it's economical for me right now.

By the way, where did you get your drop? And if you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost you? Did you buy the springs online or through the shop?

The GM rep will be used, from someone who only used it for like 3000 miles, so the intake is all nice and broken in

I bought the springs online for about 240$ shipped

http://www.**********s.com/product.a...Springs_E90_PR

Quick shipping. Getting them installed and getting my car re-aligned was expensive. BMW of Nashville was expensive about 900$ to get them on and car re-aligned, but they are very good when it comes to BMW's. I think any shop could put them on though.

I think I'm the most modded E90 in town even though I dont have many. Yea I planning to order the intake tomorrow.

The squeak is when I'm turning the wheel. It comes from the top of my steering column. I might come by tomorrow after school because Michael J. my S.A. cant get it to come back so he said just bring it by when it does.

I also have the normal rattles that are annoying....dash trim and the low mph brake squeak

if you need someone to put in your intake i can probably do it for you...as for the other issues if youd like me to check them out for you after hours or something i probably can because i dont work on michaels team though he does have good guys working on his team. as for the thing squeeking that could be something as simple as the clock spring or slip ring as its sometimes called. let me know how it goes

I can do the intake, I just dont know if its needed thats all I mean it might be like 5hp, but I dont know the 330i intake is a reallly good design as I have heard

Edit: gundamfans is more modded than me, well in certain area's. If I got a bodykit we would be same pretty much in mods

I mean a few extra HP helps a lot, I mean I open up my car when I get onto 40+mph roads, and with this exhaust I can finally actually always chirp or spin into 2nd if I'm pushing it. ( Used to barely ever make the traction like come on)

Even if the intake only gives me 5+hp I think I might get it.

Im just waiting for senior year to either trade in on a new 335i or used M3. (If I stay on honor roll, which I am on)

Right now I'm very happy with my car (except for the rattles) for a few years probably

How bout you just pay all that off and wait for a little while till something like an M5 once the price goes down, but your probably a smaller car type of guy.

I would pay off all that and wait a little while so you will have a good bit of money to throw around afterwards
