Tough decision you have there. Aside from the CH wheels, you might consider a BBK. Otherwise, the amount of bang for the buck starts to diminish the more maxed out your car is with mods.

The other idea might be something like INGdirect.com?

It could be a nice down payment for that future E92 M3.

Want to try out a set of Koni Double Adjustable Coil-overs with camber plates? That will set you back ~$3100

Since you got the killer deal on the TEINs, why not get some BBK to increase the thermo capacity of your brakes. You can never have enough brakes. With better brakes, you will need some good tires to utilize the new found braking capabilities. I would recommend Michelins or Yokohamas.

I think LSD is a good addition as well with all the power you are making! Didn't you say you will get it for your Bday? Is it coming up soon?

Well, you know who to call to get best deals!

The Hartge's one comes to you ready to install as it has been already tuned from Hartges technicians before shipping. So it's not actually who manufactures the differial but who's setting it up. Anyway i believe that Hartge wouldn't pick the wrong material wouldn't they.
Panoz,
I believe Hartge uses Quaife differentials supplied by Kevin Bird of Bird Auto in the UK anyway, so they are one and the same !
