Now that mine is paid for I plan to soon install the stuff that's been piling up in our basement...

coilovers, camber kit, H&R spacers, wheels, etc.

I purchased it on Jan 27 and installed the homelink transmitter and center armrest last weekend. I have ordered H&R springs, Enkei J10 wheels (silver, 16x7 4-100), Conti DW tires (205/50R16) and TPMS sensors and those will go on the car in the next week or two. Next up after that will be tint. Then I am probably done.

Going to be a busy year! Just picked up the CBP a few days ago, red one we got back in October. Once the BMW sells we'll be knocking most of the stuff off the CBP's list.

Red one:
- JDM Tails (done)
- LED License Plate Bulbs (done)
- Door Sills (done)
- Floor Liners (just bought)
- Springs
- Wheels (ordering through work, ETA 3 months )

Black one:
- Tint (getting done this weekend)
- LED License Plate Bulbs (ordered)
- Door Sills
- Floor Liners
- Wheels (not sure what we're going with yet for this one)
- BT35-HON Bluetooth

Those are just the plans too...I'm sure more stuff will come along as the year goes on, can't leave my cars well enough alone.

Just took delivery 1/31 of a polished metal Fit Sport Manual, and it became readily evident that it needs a lot of little things.
First off was all season mats, cargo cover, and rubber cargo tray.

It's a good car, but we all know what the weak points are.

In this order:

1) IR Tint!!!! ASAP!!!
2) ej6 clutch master cylinder
3) 205/50/16 summer tires
4) swift sport springs
5) MAYYYBE a progress rear sway.
I doubt it'll be necessary after the tires/springs.

the short shifter definitely makes a difference.
but it still doesn't feel tight enough.

just ordered Torque Solution cable bushings, hopefully this will make the difference.
And I have to get some hard mounts as well.

Buy a newer deck and / or audio processor Active Xovers and USB are apparently sacrilegious.

New components (tweeters and mids. )

Buy tires for my Buddy Clubs

Maybe Swift Springs

Maybe shift bushings and maybe a short shifter.

Now that my Clazzio's arrived, only thing left to do on the car is aftermarket Nav and Buddy Club coilovers.
