Default If anyone is curious, this is my list for the Bimmer.

Come spring, I will have $$$ and a job to do the following things to zee Bimmer.

1. Fix front end with new bumper, grilles, hood, and fender
2. Fix rust, bondo and prep for new paint
3. Replace ALL suspension components (shocks, struts, poly bushings, springs, control arms, steering rack, etc)
4. Replace muffler with aftermarket highflow
5. replace brakes, rotors and rebuild calipers, new wheel bearings
6. fix rip in drivers seat and repair moonroof
7. Paint the car Alpinweiss (original color)
8. plan a possible turbo with low psi with intercooler (not absolutely sure on this one)
9. tint taillights and place yellow film on the headlights
10. all black trim will be painted gloss black
11. flush and refill all fluids

I estimate the total cost to be about 4-5 grand and 2-3 grand without the turbo. I will most likely hold out on the turbo until i get more $$ to make the engine turbo ready.

I don't care what you do to the Bimmer.

HOWEVER, I must suggest something. Instead of painting it white, I STRONGLY suggest you consider Galaxy Silver Metallic, I think it would look fanastic with the red interior and the shape of the Bimmer.
