I'm planning on putting a UUC cat-back exhaust on, probably in the spring. But other than that, not really. I've got almost 200k on the odo and everything is running great. Nearly anything rubber, plastic, or is a pulley, has been replaced. But once things start to wear out again, I'd like to do a full engine swap. Probably just up to the m54 3.0, but I'd love to cram something bigger in there.
