I appreciate the comment. As far as looks go the most updated pic would be right after I installed the coils. New brakes will be done in the spring time as well.

I still have the new badges to put on but I will wait until spring.

Thanks! Yeah I would like to do DIY stuff but it takes twice as long to do the installs. Most everything I have done I either pieced together the information or found a video on YouTube.

If I get one of these new jobs I am trying for I will be doing a full M body kit, air ride suspension and duel exhaust

Thanks and I do a lot of research before I attempt any of them. I have been working and modding cars for over 30 years. I think this will be my last DD I mod so extensively.

I am going to go old school next time with a 69 Chevy SS project car.

Apple Car Play MMI by BimmerTech installed and working.

I will link the DIY by BMWDIYGUY on YouTube once it’s up. Installation was really simple.

Looks great. Can't wait to do mine. Is it pretty quick and simple to navigate through it?

It takes a little while to get use to it. Do you currently have Navi or Bluetooth capability to hook up with you phone?

I was going to say if you dont have that stuff this kit would work great for you. If you did have it already this kit seems a bit unnessecary.

Little update........MMI has been sold. Was creating problems for me with my setup.

After a lot of back and forth with myself I am going to keep the grey brembo brakes and install them soon. Bought new rotors and pads and brake fluid flush kit.

Reps

I got a deal that was to good to pass up.

I got a used set with center caps for $450 shipped.

I have seen a couple of horror stories when it comes to reps but I will never track my car and I don't drive my car aggressively so besides normal daily driving there wont be much stress put on them.

Gotcha. Sounds like you made the right choice considering the deal. Post pics when they're on

Ooo nice! The right grey calipers hiding under the 437's will certainly look good
