I like corners and mountains. Both are equally liberating, enjoyable and with the right driver: art.

I just bought my car two weeks ago so my list is long. I'm crossing things off though!

Recently Done:
- Compression test (195 to 210 across the board! Wahooo!)
- New spark plugs
- New valve cover gasket set
- New BMW OE floor mats
- New BMW OE fog lights
- New BMW OE shift knob
- Replaced 3 OBC bulbs
- Cleaned out trunk (previous owner spilled an entire bottle of red wine back there)
- New OE battery
- Cleaned and polished headlights
- New air filter
- Cleaned MAF sensor
- Seafoam treatment, through brake booster and also secondary air pump
- Topped off coolant (was getting the "low coolant" message on OBC)

To Do:
- Build exhaust (just got parts for a complete 3" exhaust, will weld up myself this weekend)
- Install B&M short shift kit (sitting on my parts bench, just haven't had time)
- Install Raceland coilovers (sitting in my garage, haven't had time to install yet)
- Get autocross alignment done after coilover install
- Delete engine driven fan (new thermostat, temp sensor etc)
- Home depot lip
- Yellow lamin-x on fog lights and highbeams
- Touch up paint
- Install LSD
- Remove traction control
- M50 IM swap
- Replace transmission and diff fluids

That's about it for now on my list. There will be more to come but this is what I've got currently. Lot's of work to do, so little time! I'm coaching two t-ball teams which takes up 5 night a week, so I've only got time on Sundays usually to work on the car.
