For me, it depends on the car itself (mostly color). I like the pre-LCI mirrors on my car, but I think the LCI mirrors look better on the non-metallic colors for some reason...

Winter wheels and tires are on the car, brake pads are back to regular R4-S', and the brakes have been flushed of some very burnt-looking fluid, and feel great again. I've missed how close the clearance is between the stock wheels (with 5mm spacers) and the F30 brakes up front. I can't wait until it snows, it's going to be a lot of fun...

Bought a new-to-me low mile rear subframe. Much easier to do bushings in one out of car vs in.
And after the undercar video I seen of how much the differential moves, I better get bushings done.


... and diff movement probably contributes to a noisy center bearing.

Define "posted". Posted somewhere? Per Jimmy Buffet "it's 5 o'clock somewhere"; applying that logic, the speed I seek is posted somewhere, making the speed I'm traveling "posted". Sometimes you gotta squint your eyes to see my logic.

I'm glad my plans are to replace the bumper and change the color up. I hate what I did to my front bumper : maybe if I had a front lip that had a yellow leading edge or something. Oh well, likely won't go to that show I was planning on this weekend. On the plus side, I'd been going back and forth with two companies since moving down to Tampa and finally negotiated a much better salary. That means my plans to spend way too much money on the car this winter just got spendier lol

Here's a pic for warning against doing what I did to a 1M bumper
