Looks great. How much did you spend on your car so far? Just trying to see what I need to spend to get it close to what you have (or trying to).

Thanks!

I am aware that it's a substantial amount, but I stopped adding it up a long time ago.

Drew the 0058 drive flanges into the hub bearings this evening and threw on the rotors and calipers for a quick confirmation fit.

Keyhole Delete

I'm finally happy with the color match on my keyhole delete. I had ordered it painted but it came in a bit too off, so I finally got around to respraying it.

It IS OEM. BMW Motorsports P/N 25008322191. It fits wonderfully in my hand and (to me) makes the gear shifter feel more like a "gear selector".

I tried a ZHP knob for about two weeks, didn't like it at all, and switched right back to the M-Sport knob. I also had the Performance knob that came with the BMW SSK, but that lasted less than 48 hours in my car. If I don't end up liking this one I can switch back to stock in under 60 seconds. No permanent harm was done to the original equipment. What the heck, I may even give the Jaffster knob a try .

In other news, I ordered the stuff to install the OEM oil-to-water heat exchanger. Now I'll have the 130i rear hub conversion, the M3 steering rack, and the oil cooler sitting around and waiting for me to have some down time. I'm also planning to replace my E93 M3 FSB with a slightly softer E9x M3/1M FSB at the same time I do all the rest of the work.

The parts keep piling up. I figure I can start installing everything mid-September after I get back from my last (scheduled) business trip of the year.
