Some suggestions:
Try on inside of windshield, Rain-X glass cleaner then Rain-X interior glass anti-fog (Walmart)
Right away get Evolution Raceworks charge pipe. Best quality and fitment
Wagner Competition EVO2, great FMIC for street and also if you want to track later
BootMod3 Stage2
If you haven't done an intake just drop in a aFe ProDry airfilter
Forget TIC since they don't break. If you have to then use Evolution Raceworks
Catch can not needed in N55 like they are in N54
Upgrade brakes to Hawk 5.0 pads and StopTech stainless steel brake lines
Hope this helps!
The Xi3's are the best winter tire I've had so far, I have complete confidence and they are very predictable. On cold 32F and below dry pavement they are equal to a good all-season(DWS, Comp-2 A/S). I went with 245 instead of 225 to help with the dry, many of my friends with similar cars(3series, S4, S5, etc) run 245s in the winter as well.

Thanks for the tips!! Now I have research to do before black friday!
