I am not just talking the head unit being sirius ready, I mean your radio antenna plug is the correct one to plug into the Sirius receiver you have. that extra antenna is unnecessary.

The car is pretty much done visually, maybe some M3 rep mirrors and a black roof should do it. (excluding the coilovers) and that supercharger.... mmmmmmmm. Can't wait to see it.

Yea i was planning to, I didnt really like the spoiler when I first looked at it but figured that was pretty easy to remove. Im also thinking about getting clear front reflectors to match the side markers.

^ If that's the OEM spoiler leave it, just make the car look more aggressive. I've seen many E46's with it and it looks hot.

I like the car, just get rid of that spoiler and black out your chrome shadowline trim and I think the car will look complete. You could replace the spoiler with an m3 spoiler. You cant see mine from my sig pic, but ill see if i have a pic somewhere.

How much do you think i can sell the rims i have already? Also im finding mtech II front bumpers, is that the same thing as ZHP? I love the interior in mine the way it is, is all black leather with the wood trim finish. I think it looks more classy with wood rather than carbon fiber but thats just me. The car already came with smoked corner and clear taillights, no orange whatsover except the front reflectors. But no point in changing those becuase plan on changing that whole front bumper soon anyways...
Angel Eyes and interior white led kits are already on the way!! Ill update my pics when i get the stuff installed in a couple weeks. Now to start saving up money for the bumpers and rims...

Thanks man!

I think you could get $300-$400 for the wheels.
Mtech I/II is the same as ZHP
I think Clears look better on black
Also since your car is pre-facelift I'd get an M3 Front Bumper instead.

Themrvin: if you decide to sell those wheels for $300-$400, you let me know first! You wouldn't have to ship.
