1)Escort 9500CI
2)Eibach pro kit
3)Dinan 3.62 LSD
4)Dinan Exhaust
5)Matte black kidney grills, AW reflectors, AW side gilles.
6)Dinan ECU flash, or AA ECU depending on if the Dinan flash is any good.
7)Morel custom installed stereo system (thanks Scott! )
8)20" Advan AVS F7 platinum black
9) HFC's and xpipe - pending the sound of Gregg's system

Where did you guys buy your tires from? Did you guys all go with the 19's rims? I am thinking of keeping my 19's for the track and my 20's for show.

Don't worry 2thdr I am getting the brushed so we will look different! haha
I got my Nitto's from the US through WheelSto with my rims

My Neez are 19's with 245/35 and 285/30 - the rears are massive, so sweet

I thought about 19's but our roads are well, Alberta Roads and I want to keep some semblance of comfort driving

Rubbish bud, you are kicking us to the ditch

I've only got some exhaust, a little chip, some tiny brakes, some cheap rims and tires, simple little pulley.

You know, all small mods

Did I tell you guys I got Jet Black grills and side markers coming to match the Shadowline trim?

There is going to be some sweet looking M3's rolling around E-town causing trouble soon... That will look cool Glenn, I am interested to see it.

As long as we all travel together so that someone else gets the fine for my loud exhaust. Read the Journal today, Linda Sloan is such a waste of DNA at times. Though I do appreciate their point on trucks and motorcycles punching it on Jasper/Whyte Ave.

Albert, I agree with Glenn, you have us beat on substance. Glenn and I are simply into flashy mods...lol. Seriously though, your car is going to be killer once that list is completed.

Hope that the weather is going to hold up this weekend.

I understand the motorcycles and such. That makes total sense.

We just have to be prudent on the application of the right foot, Henday yes, Whyte Ave no, Whitemud yes, JasperAve no, 2thdr street yes, my neighbourhood no

Well I personally think all you guys are infected with the mod bug and some of that has infected me now somehow Haha I just pulled the trigger on the AA ECU and the pulley. Thought it would be easier to have the ECU tuned for it rather getting it re-tuned when I get the pulley down the road. Now for the hard part, not being able to drive the M for at least a week. So Albert you were planning to get the pulley installed at karmac right?

heh heh heh ....its infectious

I am going to Karmac too for the pulley and other stuff, just got it yesterday and my Eisenmann connecting pipes and some AA air filters.

It is prob a DIY but the pics are kinda crappy and a technician would hopefully do a better job than me, plus need Torx wrenches

I am gonna prob end up waiting now since my car is still in the body shop.

Fentanyl, make sure to get things all ready with AA prior to sending the ECU down.

Haha, Jenny is going to knife you Davy! When are planning on doing this? I am still waiting for my pulley to be shipped from WheelSTO since it has been back ordered forever for the DCT. They offer a different tune when the pulley is installed? I am still waiting to hear what Dinan has to offer in terms of a flash until I make my final decision.

Why is your car still in the body shop Glenn, or should I say MODFOOL?

Yeah I'll just tell her it was your influence and redirect some of that rage to you. I'm thinking of taking the ECU out tomorrow and send it in. The faster the better with this supposed study break. but I'm assuming the pulley won't be in till at least a week and a half. But yea I think that would be too much of a venture for a DIY.

2 weeks already? Almost anything is cheaper than a BBK Glenn!

I have asked around more about modern and have not heard good things especially in customer service. How have then been to you?

What do you guys think about the BBS LM-R's or the P40's? Ignore the rest of the thread and focus on the first 2 pics. Your opinions are welcome

Mehhh, Derek the detailer has been really good, worked OT on the weekend on my car but overall, I'd prob think twice, taking too long, not sure they did what they were supposed to do to reduce my wait time and seem a little disorganized.

If I need work again I'll look around, and yeah they charge a ton

Sometimes going there prior I kinda felt like I was disturbing one of the people doing the quotes, not sure if just bad service or attitude or just weird

P40's unless you are a BBs man.

What about the Yokohama Advan RS Albert? Those are hawt too
