My '92 Accord is getting new motor mounts, door lock mechanisms, tail light housings, and trunk gaskets. Nothing fun but at least it will actually be fun and drivable again.

The Sequoia might get a TRD skid plate but we'll see if I actually pull the trigger on that one. Also been looking at a better roof rack/basket but I hear they are many months on backorder so that's probably going to wait too.

The M5 gets nothing, she got a lot of fun gifts earlier in the year so I'm focusing on my other cars now. Though I may soon get my stock headlights fixed up and cleared because my ebay headlights make driving at night miserable. Next up would be a vented hood and CSL trunk but I just haven't gotten to the point where I have convinced myself I actually want it...and I'm running out of space to put car parts.

How about an LS E36 M3?
It gets a race seat that will fit both butt cheeks.
A harness that works with the seat so I don't die if I crash.
A good set of wheels and good tires to put the power down.
A new suspension system
Rear diff housing and Turner bushings
New wheel studs and lugs
Heli-coil for the caliper mounting bracket
I'm so glad I bought a well sorted LS M3 for myself for Christmas.

My SMG M5 is well sorted and needs nothing but love. Until of course it spits out an Idler pully on the way home from buying the M3.
A full set of tensioners and belts are on the way

The manual M5 is getting the gift of removal.
The sunroof is going and the roof gets skinned
The seats are going to be replaced by something that weighs less than 50#
GC camber plates, the KMAC junk is going back for credit.

E38 750il Chromeline
UCC front and rear sway bars
Front rear strut arms with urethane bushings
Full transmission service

May owing four BMW's that are known trouble makers is not such a bright idea?

O yeah the wife and kids, well they drive BMW's too to there's that?

Alright getting in on this although my M5's present isn't super exciting (it did just get a CIC retrofit as an early gift) - FCP has the rear window seal on sale and mine is starting to show its age so Merry Christmas M5!
