For (2) reasons I went with wheels/cosmetic upgrades first over performance:

1. Still can't seem to bring myself to a decision on Malone Stage 1.5 or 2.
2. I need an alignment and wheel balancing and we're traveling to Seattle for Thanksgiving.

So my very, very first upgrade was to color match the side markers. I really liked the improvement on my white car (in post #1).

Here's what I sourced:


Also, my wheels are currently off the car and at my buddy's shop for painting. I did this exact same thing last year with my VW 17" Goals (Also see the white car in post #1 and the white X5d on the left in the photo below). They will be done in satin black as I've been really pleased with the first 2 sets I ran through him.



On the way up to Seattle for the holiday we'll stop by Achtuning for a pair of H&R DRA 20mm spacers:



This too is just a cosmetic thing for me. Last time I did it I didn't really notice any significant change in driving.
