Sweet, very sexy, congrats! I love the 22OM's! You could do absolutely nothing to it and have a perfect ride...I know how it is though.

Here is some updates on my car. I recently participated in a Track day down at Autobahn Country Club. So I went ahead and purchased the following:
Hawk DTC-70 front and rear pads
Motul 660 Fluid
Also Purchased H&R Sport Plus Springs which I will be putting on next week.

So question, I need to get my wheels refinished, stay stock finish or go gloss black?

Here are some pics from my install day at VS Motorsports
My car is flying haha

Stock Pad with Hawk DTC-70 Pad

New lines

^ agreed. I hated my H&R springs compared to Eibachs at least. Rather stay oem than do H&R again.

I say refinish wheel in stock color but then again im not a fan of black wheels in general.

No issues but they felt as if the handling went to piss poor after going with them.

Very bouncy as well. They really popular though so they cant be that bad i suppose. I just commenting on what i went through.

Eibach springs with e36 bumpstops.

Just drove 1500 miles with them to Canada and back. They were wonderful.

seriously do not do the h&r. it is a waste of time and money. stock will perform better on track until you are ready to move towards a more dedicated setup.

shit, itll perform better on the street as well

I'm currently using Eibach on E36 bumpstops and I agree with everyone when they say that it's a nice solution. Wish it went a tad bit lower though.

They'll be on sale soon, since I'm getting my KW CS's put on.

I had Eibachs in my M3. IMO it was no performance upgrade.
I replaced them with a Bilstein PSS10 2 weeks ago. Keep in mind, that the right setup of the coilover is very important. Replacing shocks and springs isn't the whole story.
