Exclusive Sedan Owner Only Thread !!!
 
IF you don't own a sedan GIT OUT :pimpin:


Just wondering what all you sedan drivers have done mod wise and how you like it. I'm especially interested in hearing from anyone that has the H&R Cup Kit with a 18x8.5 wheel and 235 40/18 rubbers.......... any rubbing ?!??!? Links to pics...... How about rear spoilers...... what you guys/ladies hooked up with off the back. I'm considering the i piece AC-S but may spend more to get into the 3 piece.

I own a 2000 328i sedan with sport in a 5-spd. I haven't done a lot........ I installed the UUC ultimate short shift kit which is awesome and a set of 18" Breyton Magics 18x8.5 all the way around with Kumho 712 235 40/18 rubbers. I'm considering doing the suspension......... although the sport suspension is really not that bad performance and cosmetics wise. I have more come....... aluminum trim squirrelled away in my basement and I have another set of front kidney grills that I'm going to black out to match the black car....... which is being a pain to keep clean....... but looks awesome when it is.

That's it for now....... post away :thumbup:

3 posts and 3 black sedans............ hmmmmmm.

Thanks for posting your links to your mods............ however, any thoughts on those mods.......... some you like and others that you may not so much!!??!?!? And if you had to do certain things again, what would you change or not do???? I guess I'm trying to see if we can post up some info regarding the sedans for people just starting out on the mods....... what to watch out for and what things are great additions.

CLEM, those gauges, where did you get them from and how much???? I'm in Toronto Canada and I'm in need of changing my gauge faces.......... and need a reference. Thanks.

as for sedans with cup kits, i'd keep my eye on the board, there was a groupbuy on a week or two ago so as people recieve their kits and put them on we should see some posts about it.

Tominizer 04-18-2002 08:45 AM

Liking that Breyton front add-on. Anyone know where I can source that out???? I'm figuring it's going to be a few bucks, but that is shweeeet.

IzzyWRX 04-18-2002 10:00 AM

Mine doesn't have many mods yet. Click on pic for details.

Get an ECIS......... makes you feel fast;)

vthee 04-18-2002 10:40 AM

ECIS or dinan? thats the question... dinan software or conforti? i have no idea... the money difference is huge!

vthee 04-18-2002 10:43 AM

my next mod (when it comes in) are the cup kits and front and rear stress bars.... i'm also deciding to put dinan or ecis/conforti for the CAI and software.... next after that is 6 piece hamann kit... i got 19 inch hartges on and a 12 disc cd changer, 6 disc dvd changer with the alpine cva-1006 monitor/tuner... hamman knob, UUC SSK and blacked out grills... and of course clears all around... i'm soo poor.

phxarchitect 04-18-2002 10:43 AM

Your right, everyone seems to have a different opinion. I'm pretty sure that the performance gains are all about the same, I went with ECIS becuase it was cheeper and I hope to have it Sharked in the next couple of months.

Joe323i 04-18-2002 10:44 AM

get the ECIS and the SHARK INJECTOR:thumbup:you will feel the difference in performance

Tominizer 04-18-2002 10:47 AM

Make your own CAI........ I did it with the previous car I owned (Acura Vigor GS 5-spd) with a K&N and it worked great. It went down into the driver's side fender well. Someone on the board is experimenting with the factory air box. My only concern is any sensors attached to the air intake......... I haven't had the time to research this one out yet. I will likely make my own CAI.

All I can say is with those sales on this board, it's so tempting to spend money............ but the thing is to spend it wisely and what's the things it should be spent on first :dunno:

Exhaust
Suspension (considering the fact that I alreay have the factory sport package)
Front lip
Rear spoiler

Need to win the lottery so I can do it all at once :thumbup:

Couldn't resist...



peace

ps Coupes are better! :tongue:

vthee 04-18-2002 10:48 AM

ok help me out guys... ECIS/shark is the same as dinan stage 2 and CAI? is there a dyno result testing these 2 set ups? also the shark injector is a DIY... i'm not good trying to connect a 10amp battery to my car's battery...

any one know how to do this in LA?

:flipoff: ..........Infiltrator....... :flipoff:


:lmao:


Just wondering......... the drops noted for UUC springs, H&R race springs, H&R Cup Kit.......... are they from non-sport or from the sport package height ?!!??!? I'm assuming non-sport.

phxarchitect 04-18-2002 10:53 AM

2 things I would have done different is saved up for coils and got the wheels I wanted instead of settling for Race springs and 18s.

As for the guages there were only 6 sets left in exsistence that were stubled upon by the PiX crew last fall and all were sold.

There are a few place in Europe that migh have km/h only guage faces.
