It’s been a while since I have done some major work to the car. Since the transmission and clutch rebuild, I have really just been doing maintenance on the car here and there. Now, however, I am back at it with a brake upgrade. The car was getting to its end on the brake pads, and the rotors were the same one from the factory and had seen better days. The front one had been fused to the axle

Yesterday i fitted the rear deck mid-range speakers which come with Bavsound's stage one upgrade kit for the E46 M3 - they actually went in very easily and provided a clearer, more punchy response than the 15yr old HK ones I took out.

Didn’t really intend on buying more parts but I’ve been feeling an odd amount of movement coming from the motor & trans lately.

Holy crap, Morimoto HID equipment is so far ahead of that Kensun garbage on amazon...worth every penny. XB35 with XB H1 5500K HID's using AMP connections. my projectors are not high end, so its temping me to mod using the Morimoto mini H1 gen 7 housings rather than my stuff from Crazy the God.
I bought these Project Mu brake pads a few months ago but I was waiting for my Hawks HP+ to die a lot more before replacing them, so I wanted to do a quick review on both brake pads. I really enjoy the Project Mu brake pads from my last two track days due to the modularity of them. Also, they don’t dust anywhere near as much, and they don’t scream (which my eardrums appreciate but I mildly miss my
