New black satin grille
Today, I changed the titanium grille to satin black... what a differance it made! (and only $50!)

Since December; Necessary items that doesn't offer any cosmetic appeal, but adds longevity and a piece of mind; Valley pan gasket, valve cover gasket, timing cover gaskets, full tune up, oil change, etc.... Cosmetic and performance enhancing items; new OEM floor mats, 35% tint, M3 steering wheel conversion.

To come; High end paint job to correct hail damage and poor PDR attempt. Underride protection (please help me find one!) Mediabridge. Bluetooth. BSW Subwoofer upgrade...Yes? Pixel repair. Seat bolster foam repair. Leather gear shift lever.... In the words of Bubba Gump, I think that's about it. :rolleyes:

I know she needs a wash, but this darn snow in NYC is crazy. Glad my Conti's DWS are awesome!

What shop is that???

Seems small: I checked the psi on my spare, it had 18psi! What good is a spare if you cant use it. Checked my Merc's spare (first time ever) it didn't even register any air and it is supposed to have 61psi! Good advice, check the spare.

I changed the CV boot and 4 wheel balance and alignment two days ago! I cheated though. Took it to a shop $190 for all labor. Parts $48 shipped from bmwmercedesparts.com

Up next, fix the height sensor that tore the CV boot in the first place.

Did the 3m headlight restoration today. I'll admit I was worried to death that I might screw it up, but it actually came out pretty decent. Definitely better than before. :thumbup:
