I have been a long time lurker (2 years or so), just waiting for the right time and the right car. I recently purchased a pristine 2001 silver on tannin 330ci from a close friend leaving my 2001 Jetta GLX behind. In those two years have been wetting my chops and planning… strategically planning on what I was going to mod when I got my car.

So, I spoke with Louie at Pacific BMW and this is what I have the lined the following up for my first purchase:
- OEM Aluminum Dead Pedal (to finish off the clutch, brake, accelerator on already)
- OEM 5speed zhp style short shift knob
- OEM Tricolor M3 steering wheel
- OEM Coat Hanger (a must have in the crummy Michigan climate – don’t want to get my leather wet)
- M3 Sideskirts (will DIY to fit properly) or Mtech Sideskirts (not sure yet)
- Mtech Euro Front bumper assembly
- Clubsport splitters (still debating)
- Mtech Rear bumper assembly
- Mtech trunk lid spoiler

The car already came with the following:
- Dinan CAI
- Dinan Stage II software
- OEM 4x3 GPS
- 6 disk cd changer
- OEM Aluminum clutch, brake, accelerator pedal
- Extra set of 17” winter wheels and tires
- Alpine x10 radio
- Sports package
- Winter package
- Montana Tannin Leather interior
- Xenon Headlights
- Escort Passport 8500 (going to take it out and put in my V1)

After winter upgrades:
- 18” Stager set up BBS CH
- 16x9 GPS head unit
- Demon Eyes

Therefore, I just wanted to thank everyone who have been posting over the last 2 years and providing knowledge and insight for us lurkers. Thanks!

I know posts like this mean nothing without pictures, so here they are. All I have are some picture from that my friend, the previous owner took, but I plan to get some better ones up soon.

Oh, and yes I immediately removed the poorly fitting momo shift knob and stripped the layer of Armorall replacing it with some flat finish Vinylex and re-did the leather with Lexol.
