Im looking to replace a few things on my car and perhaps get a few upgrades this summer. What would you guys recommend for each item. I want good performance, but Im not paying rediculous prices... (My car is a '97 328i sedan)
Spark Plugs and wires
Brakes (Rotors and pads)
Speakers... (yes I know this isnt ness. a BMW question, but i have a blown one up front, so im not getting stock.)
Exhaust... good performance for the $$?
And anything else you guys think I should replace...
are all original bmw speakers made by nokia? mine were! yeah i replaced mine with crossover alpine, only like 25W rms and they're good enough! could do with a bit more base in the back with the 4" but good enough for now anyway!
dont get ur chip until ur done with all ur engine mods...
Unless you have an intake and exhaust on there....
Battery: Optima... only way to go.
Spark plugs and wires: Get OEM. Period.. they are copper. Wires: Yours are fine unless you plan on re-doing fuel... timing.. ect.
Brakes: Rotors: Zimmerman (good price) get regular rotors... no need for x-drilled or slotted.. unless you plan to use them for more than sprinted driving. Pads: Get OEM... unless you need more... should be no need.
O2 sensors: Get OEM... www.bimmerworld.com
Wipers: Get the teflon ones.. thy work good and last.
Speakers: I have no clue...
Exhaust...: Borla... a little exspensive.. but the sound is wonderful.. I'm partial..
