Definitely upgrade the chargepipe. The plastic one is known to go and break without warning. There's plenty of DIY instructions on the forums here and videos on youtube as well.

Great car. Thanks for sharing!

Before investing in lowering springs, I suggest to explore coilovers especially KW Street Comfort.

If you ever plan on upgrading brakes, I would look for a 19" or 20" rims, then you'll never have worry about clearance. on the other hand, if no plans on brakes 18" is fine. as for tire size for xdrive I run 225/45 r18 msport square & 225/40 F, 255/35 R 19" & 225/35 f 255/30 r 20" all with Mperformance brake kit and lowered H&R
BM3 Stage 1 with burger intake and Evolution Raceworks charge pipe. waiting on Evolution Raceworks catless downpipe. Enjoy the car and the modding
