I have a 4 dr 95 325i and after I get it out of the shop, I was wanting to add a new CD player, likely something that will match the interior best I can without much regaurd for features and such, as I already have a $1500 system in my 03 Hyundai Tiburon.. So thats about $150-200 for a CD player w/install I'm guessing.
If anyone has any suggestions on what CD player to get, please let me know.
Also, I want to try and get a cold air intake for this car, to get a little better gas mileage.. I noticed there is a advertisement on the BMW home page here for some kind of "Tornadonator" ?.. $70 for that, promises like a 20-30% better fuel efficiency, which i dont quite believe.. The Injen CAI on my Hyundai Tiburon gets me about 2 mpg extra and I paid $200 for it.. But i got it more for the extra power, not gas mileage.. With my BMW, i have plenty of power, but just want better fuel efficiency..
Other question is, has anyone tried to paint their brake calipers on this model? If so, does it look ok or would i be wasting my time?
I'm definitely going to get the windows tinted (25% front, 30% back passenger/quarter panels, and 50% rear: note: highest legal tint I can get them), but it's like $125 at the shop I use, so no biggie there. If you have suggestions on whether I should lower the tint % anywhere, let me know..
Also, I'll be thinking bout upgrading the lights on the vehicle, I hear "Silver Stars" are good choices for the E36.. $35-40 or so.. I have some Xexon's on my Tiburon, but they didnt do much better then my originals, so think i'll go with whatever everyone else gets.
I don't want to spend no more then $400-500 doing upgrades on this vehicle
