I got a few things done on my 325is I picked up on Tue.

Replaced rearshocks, inspected rear springs, checked tire fitment/fender rolling, and rewired a bunch of stereo stuff that look terrible. It good order, I detailed the interior too.

Up to bat tomorrow- wash the car (its been cold/rainy here), pick up some parts from a M3 owner who's parting stuff out, have a friend/bmw mechanic look over the car and give me some pricing on replacing a few things. Pick up some new rear tires- I'm currently running 245/40/r18's and they're too big for the rear, I'm rubbing all kinds of fender. Sunday, have my neighbor/autobody guy, roll the fenders/ price me on repairing a few dents/dings/tlc areas.

A lot of stuff, but I love my new to me Bimmer!
