Picked up my 01 325ci in late 2004 with 90k on the odometer for 15k, as my third mode of transportation :facepalm:(99 tahoe, vstar bike)

She had all the nice options
sunroof
sport suspension
12 speaker hk system
xenon headlights
17in rims
nice sports seats

I was in love.

This is kind of how i picked her up except for the painted rims and the exhaust.

And the the mod bug got me HARD around 2008 :D

heres all my bday stuff in 2008, from friends, gf, and me

But around this time the auto transmission started to **** up, i had a mechanic look at it and he said that it would need a rebuild :( .
This resulted in the sitting for a little longer than a year as i collected parts and information on the 5 speed swap :) .

I also decided to install all the parts i got.

During this time while the car sat i also decided to totally redo the interior, suede everywhere and carbon fiber material. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...r/P1010406.jpg

Early 2010 i moved back to San Antonio and i stored the car in my girlfriends moms garage lol, i have no pics of this for some reason?? I ended up starting and finishing the 5 speed swap, which was actually not that hard.

During this time i also experimented with colors for the rims :rofl:


And here she is fresh from the garage all ready to GO!

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22.../DSC_00053.jpg

And so the mods continue

Carbon fiber fenders ended up not fitting cause they were for a sedan :(

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...r/101_1510.jpg

Also i picked up a lip for the m3 bumper which has still not made it on the car

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...r/101_1515.jpg

Also got an AFE intake



More pics of the interior as i finalized somethings and picked up an m3 wheel :D


OOOO i also scored a roof rack that was actually for a VW but i customized it to fit my car.

Then i was getting a litle tired of the rims since the offset was really aggressive and they are a little heavy, so i picked these up.

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...r/DSCN0232.jpg

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...r/DSCN0230.jpg
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...r/DSCN0229.jpg

But they were only 16s so i changed my mind again and sold the Rs's and picked up these.




My plan is to run a squared set up with 4 rear rims.

Since i had the money i had the opportunity to pick this stuff up.



Went out and took a couple shots with my friend.

darksideracer69 03-16-2011 02:24 PM

CURRENT

How the m3 bumper sits, i am molding the lip and shaving the sides to fit better.



Also these are still waiting to go on.


I am sure there are plenty of things that i am missing, and i have parts waiting to go on that i don't have pics of yet. Also future plans :D


So what yall think
