Yeah, if you knew my directional skills (or lack of), you'd understand why I want the gps functionality. In the past I would have jumped on suspension in a second, but recently (due to a few tickets), I've been driving the speed limit everywhere and rarely pushing my car unless it's in a straight line on an open road. Hard cornering and sway isn't much of a problem anymore, as this is my day to day driver, not a track car.
And you can get the avic n1 new on ebay for about half price. :P
....or I could just scrap both of these ideas and get a jumbo love sack. (for those who don't know what that is, it's a MASSIVE (like fitting 2-5 people), insanely soft beanbag that costs like $600. Use it for a year, then take it with me to college next year for furnature. lol. I'm a bit weary in putting too much money into my car now though, because next year I won't be able to drive it (freshman can't have cars).
To do list:
UUC System U TDM- 3/05
M50 manifold converstion 3/05
off to the tuning shop for custom software 4/05
Cams/lightened flywheel, throttlebody........ well lets see what happens

Every dinan part you buy has a certain point value, for example a cai is 2 points. After you reach 10 points, you mail Dinan a copy of all your receipts and they ship you a Dinan lid badge, so you can prove to everyone that your car is better than theirs. :P
AVIC N1 is really cool, my dad almost got it in his m3...you can measure G's, 0-60 time, tell you your miles per gallon...it is not the average install either, they connect it to ur gauges and everything so it can even display your speed and rpms. And best of all it has GPS and a DVD player. If you decide to get that, tell them NOT to hook up a the DVD protection cable to your e-brake, it makes it so that is the only way to play movies, and you want them while ur driving!! lol
