Finally got the new intercooler installed

It took a while, but I wanted to be sure to time this correctly - I had to have one of my headlights replaced under warranty so the front bumper needed to be pulled anyways - so I saved some labor costs :)  The guys at Von Housen were fantastic!

Unboxed the new heat exchanger - looks great!

and here it is installed... (subtle - yet effective!)

now it's time to add one of these guys...

time for some new shoes... Hankook V12s

It's time for some new tires, and I've heard the HANKOOK VENTUS V12 EVO K110 are a great "bang for the buck" tire! 
Fronts @ 245/40-18 and Rears @ 275/35-18

To sticker, or not to sticker, that is the question...

OK - a little promo for the Eurocharged team  - Great company to work with so far, and very good stuff!  They sent these to me in the mail...  they're grey to somewhat match the silver.  I know, I know - if I got yellow or red stickers it would add 50HP- but I'm ok for now ;)

It will look a little like this... but my windows have a little tint so would darken the background
So what do you think?  Should I put them in the rear quarter windows ?

Colder Spark Plugs for the E55 - NGK LFR7AIX #2309

Looking to get some new plugs for the E55, many have said that a colder plug should be used to reduce EGTs (Exhaust Gas Temperatures) when adding more power - basically one step colder per every 75HP added. NGK LFR7AIX Iridium IX Spark Plugs have been recommended by many on the popular sites.  Granted, on the E55 - 16 plugs are needed - YIKES!

These are a great set of plugs! Really smooths out the idle and helps to keep exhaust temps under control!
