Guess its time for me to make a build thread, car went into bodyshop today
 
Hey guys, yes another build thread, I will be going over what I have done and what my plans are. I bought my 2000 323i in January of last year, here she is

I got it for $5500 with 130k miles and a set of 18inch m3 wheels. I put the m3 wheels on.

Then I found out they rub in the rear, so I took them off. Got rid of the amber sidemarker #khoalty.

First DIY was the control arms, was a tough one :( #OEMBIMMERPARTS

Oh oh, found stock wheels and the tires were splitting from the sidewall :yikes: so m3 wheels went back on with rubber spring spacers to raise the rear.

Bought some used 18 inch BBS RX wheels w/tires, got jipped, one wheel had couple bends in it and a crack, all the tires were :ben:

New wheels came just in time for christmas, thanks dad! #supreme power parts

On the car with Federal tires

Then got some umnitza orion lite opaques installed

http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/...0/DSCN0056.jpg

Then the accident :( sorry babe

http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/...0/DSC_0017.jpg

http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/...0/DSCN0061.jpg

In the process of fixing it, yup Koni struts #tire rack and gray fender #bav recycling, used hub from the junkyard, depo smoked corners #khoalty, new brembo front rotors #BMAparts and akebono euro ceramic brake pads #tire rack, and haha orange calipers ftw!

http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/...0/DSCN0187.jpg

Mtech II #umnitza is on, car is now in the bodyshop getting painted metallic black and bodywork :D

http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/...0/DSCN0222.jpg

Next thing is two toning my doors, might paint the plastic black, I might have a guy do it for me.

http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/...0/DSCN0194.jpg

Yes I know its a bit rough around the edges but im taking care of that :) Oh it has 138k miles on it now, not bad considering I live Hawaii haha :P July 7th I am entering my car into SPOCOM Hawaii 2012, along with my Team BMW Hawaii. I also got a trunk lid spoiler thats going on after I get the car back. This June I will be picking up smoked LED tails, VCG, sparkplugs with inserts, might also need a steering rack too. Then I will be done with my exterior, but what do you guys think of mtech II cf splitters from khoalty? Shipping a lip to Hawaii is outrageous, plus it will be more than the bumper itself :facepalm: Planning to do an AFE CAI, maybe an Active Autowerkes tune for the engine. Um then maybe new center console because its all scratched and cupholders are coming off, shifter plate is coming off so might need to replace that, also stitching in the middle rear top seat is coming off more and more, need to re stitch my driver seat bolster, oh and also drivers side tweeter is out, so looking to replace that with the same HK tweeter pair or go for BSW pair. Yup thats it, thanks for looking! :thumbsup: Edit: Added in where I bought my stuff from, look for the hash tags

Thanks and yeah I guess it did, struts were probably going anyways. Oh yeah forgot to include maintenance: radiator and misc. cooling parts replaced, power steering resevior replaced, pre cat o2 sensors, fuel filter, also the new rear brakes, rear shocks also replaced, front hubs have both been replaced.
