Cool Any plans for Spring Projects on your D?

I know winter is still here but we are getting closer to spring with each day that passes. Is anyone planning something new for their D this spring? New tires? New rims? JBD? Suspension work? Etc?

Tell us what you're up to!

With the coming new Diesels in Spring, I won't be doing anything to my D and may trade it on for a 328d Touring xdrive!

What is killing me is our D is such a Great car and there won't be another one like it.
So I may just drive it to the ground. My ML's lease will be up on June 2014 so I may just hang on till them and decide if I want to buy it out or get a new one then.

ECU tuning, Wheels (thinking O-Z Ultraleggera HLT 19 x 8.5 and 19 x 10) and tires (probably Goodyear F1 Asymmetric).

Getting my final two pieces of the M3 suspension parts is what inspired this topic for me. I'm looking to do a complete suspension overhaul in March with the following M3 pieces. The Megan Racing toe arms are the only non-M3 upgrade:



Front sway bar

Front lower wishbone/control arm (L)

Front lower wishbone/control arm (R)

Front tension strut (L)

Front tension strut (R)

Adjustable front sway bar end links



Rear sway bar

Rear subframe bushings - (front, 2X)
- (rear, 2X)

Rear guide rod (L)

Rear guide rod (R)

Rear upper link/wishbone (L)

Rear upper link/wishbone (R)

Adjustable rear sway bar end links

Megan toe arms

GBD, are you going to do a Quaife while you have the rear subframe dropped for the sway bar and subframe bushings?

This weekend I'm adding my M3 strut brace kit and adjustable Vorshlag camber plates to the car. I already have adjustable sway end links on the front but I feel they're a tad short so I'm swapping them out for longer ones.

Unfortunately the adjustable Vorshlag camber plates was another story altogether:

I was finally able to properly install my front camber plates this weekend.

Here's a pic of the Vorshlag camber plates installed with the M3 strut brace kit:

And here's a view of my front -2.5 camber:
