I've never used a roof rack on any car (always just borrow my parents pickup to suburban), but 100% of the BMW roof rack bits are for cross bars.

Default Really, BMW?

Official TIS instructions for mounting the OEM BMW iPod interface for e9X. Would a mounting bracket be too much to ask for?

At least they're consistent with the cabling for said iPod interface:

Happy new wheel day! Every car got wheels they've never run before.

e46 got a set of anthracite RG-63's that I traded my hyperblack RG-63's for over the winter. Much better match for IR, imo!



e91 got a set of 17" BBS SR's. They look AWESOME now (way better than in this pic), but are going to look even better next week when we take it off the non sport suspension:



e39 got a set of 18" BBS RG-Rs in silver. Never seen silver RG-Rs before, the color goes quite nicely with Le Mans blue, I think!



... all cars need washes. It's been winter, what can I say

Could have also used a non phone camera and non rainy day, but.. reh.

Two more crappy phone pics of the BBS's. I am super enthused with them-- they match the lines and color of the car perfectly, without looking overly aftermarket, imo!

Things to get done this week:
-add drain plug to diff
-diff fluid swap
-trans fluid swap
-engine oil/filter swap
-cabin air filter
-engine air filter
-brake fluid swap
-roof rack delete
-eibach/koni yellow install
-OEM iPod MOST interface install
-evolve tune
-lots and lots of coding changes
-battery cable recall
-reset all the service interval indicators

Fairly long list, so may not get to all of it (especially as the M3 also has a couple projects)... but that's the goal. Roof rack delete is the most likely to get cut, if only because I won't be clean enough to do it after doing the others

I'm pretty sure it's only going to look awesome when it's off the stock non sport suspension and the roof rack is removed
