Treasures of the Tao(bao) "淘得"經

On the path to enlightenment we must first satisfy our carnal craving for material objects, especially from across the border, the Nirvana of cheap crap.
Here are some to ponder (actually just buy it without thought (無為)):

headlight tint
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=9925673390

'premium' leather for steering wheel
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=9045785380

pump pressure spray, help your maid wash the car
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=10508507612

jack stand, bet your life with chinese manufacturing quality
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=10225087354

chrome letters/badge for car ext. (no responsibility for tacky displays)
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=8244051750

.
.
Brothers, please add more goodies as you come across!

what you need to do is drive the car on a plank of wood and then you will have the gap.

Bros, Hamann doesn't have its own front and rear bumpers. It's just add on front lips, diffusers and side skirts to standard edition or M sport.

Personally I like a simple and small front lip. Like the one with the new M3 CRT. Hope there will be something like it coming out for aftermarket.

Not sure after this replica Chinese M aero kits.

Hamann add on front lips is ok, but I'm not a fan of carbon fiber. yea I think a small front lip on M front would be nice

Not a CF fan either. I like the small lip of something like the M3 CRT but may be matching body color not CF.

That is a jack stand, to prop up your car after you have raised it with a car jack, it cannot raise car by itself.
I measured the f10 from jacking pts, 15-15.5cm front 17cm rear, (no drop) the 350rmb jack im considering is 13cm min, enough for front after drop. or can use wood as RC says
but its just too heavy to use easily, 11.5kg .. maybe use icecream bucket one, only 3kg .. still thinking
if those jack stands are so cheap, may buy 4 to halve the load stress, provided enough jack points.. 100rmb to buy more life insurance
