Pretty cool! How much extra did it cost to have them come out? I have a 4 vehicle fleet that I'm constantly putting tires on and would be nice to not sit at a tire store for once.
I think it was $145 for all four tires to be mounted and balanced.

He has a really good setup with everything inside of the truck and the two portable air jacks he has are straight dope.

Well, bought a while back, but finally installed:

H&R front/rear sway bars (and made steel reinforcement plates for the front)
slotted & cross drilled rotors all around
ceramic brake pads all around
oil change kit from ECS
Lemforder FCABs
Skyer convertible side covers

Also, after many months of trying to track down the source of a 'clunk' coming from the front, I discovered the reinforcement plate that covers the oil pan had 7 of 8 bolts loose, and the 8th was missing! :O Everyone says to check the strut tower braces, but my issue was underneath.

Can't wait to drive it this week!

I did those same 3 pieces (diff knob though) during summer.

Ordered some custom exhaust tips that fit over the stockers. Also bought new set of OEM motor mounts.

Everyone with the old BMW Assist panel on the console should ditch it for the oddments tray. BMW Assist as it was in 2006-2008 is no longer functional - it utilized the Verizon analog network, which has been shut down for years now. Might as well make use of the space with the tray, which is readily available and not expensive.

This is the only shift knob I will now own. It's weighted and has a delrin cover (won't scorch your hand in the summer) that can be easily changed for different shapes. I bought one for my GT350 and put an (almost) identical one in the Z4M.

I tend to put my elbow directly on the clear plastic cover (and its little tab) as I lower myself into the seat. It was bound to break.

More comfortable than it looks. I just picked it up a few months back and have not taken it to the track. Currently I drive it on the street (although the seats are quite hot without AC during the summer months).

There is plenty of room on the sides though the headrest will rub the headliner if pushed all the way back. I am 6'1" and do not have the seat all the way back at my preferred driving position.

I believe these are the seats.
