My First BMW: New Member
 
Hey everyone! :thumbsup:

My name is Mike. I just bought my first BMW, a 2003 Metallic Green 325Ci. What an amazing car! Everything people say about BMW's is true. I've only had it four days and I've already driven it 200 miles, I never want to get out of it.

I am here to check out others rides and look for a few tips here and there, no heavy modding though. The only plans I have are:

+ Body colored front-bumper corner lights
+ HID projector headlamps
+ OEM-like "Angel Eyes" or "Demons" or "Corona Rings" or whatever they are called

If you have any tips where I can get good a good quality HID/Ring kit with factory-like look or those corner lights, let me know!

Anyway, here are a few pics of the new ride I took today. Please ignore the dirt (no time for a car wash yet) and the dead grass ha ha...hope you like it!

Victor98: Yes, I need to paint the reflectors, that is what I meant by body-colored corner lights. They light up in the Jetta (prev. car) so I have a habit of calling the, corner lights. Should I get that done at a shop or can you buy pre-painted reflectors online?

And you're right, tint is a good call. I have had more than one person tell me they would like to see the 325Ci with the same 20% tint I had on the Jetta.

Racinghart: Thanks for the welcome! Yeah actually BMW officially calls what everyone calls "Angel Eyes", Corona Rings. But whenever I use that term people ask me WTF I am talking about and they they go, "Oh you mean Angel Eyes!" or, "You mean Demons?" Ha ha, NO I MEAN CORONA RINGS!

Again, if anyone knows of a source for good quality factory-like HID projectors with Corona Rings pre-installed lemme know!

I'm sorry but I am a total BMW noob, what do you mean by "clears"? Clear reflectors?

gura: Thanks! But I can't lie, there may have been a RI state park picnic table involved in the taking of those photo's...no tree climbing. :P
