My Build Thread:Lots of pics:)

I am a college student and the first year i spent all my money on maintenance, now i decided it was time to start modding:)

Here is how my car looked how i got it:
it is a 325i non-sport


The first mod i did was tint my windows:)
34% on front two and 17% on back three windows

My next mod was getting oem xenon headlights. Anyone without xenon headlights should really upgrade to oem xenons. it costs a good amount of money but it is well worth it:thumbup:

I didnt mod for a while since i had no money:/ all my money went to text books

The next mod i wanted to do was get new wheels. The stock ones were just ugly:(


i bought some oem bbs style 124 off a 545i hoping they would fit

unfortunately i did not like how they fit, offsets were too low and the rim stuck out past the fender too much for my liking

Luckily! i found a really cheap set of oem style 189 wheels for only $300!!! steal of the century

Since i have the nonsport e46 i bought the sport suspension for it:) i wanted a drop but not too much therefore i went with oem suspension

the new wheels changed the look of the car completely! there is almost no wheel gap and the amount of negative camber looks perfect:) i love how it sits.

and of course i got it aligned after

Many say going from non-sport to sport suspension is not even noticeable but it is!

Next i bought some V2 Umnitza angel eyes, it added a nice touch:D

After i bought the bmw performance exhaust off a member here! i removed the resonator nearest to the muffler. It sounds awesome!

Then i bought the trunk spoiler lip off ebay for about 40 dollars!
i also paint matched he trunk handle to match the entire car

I recently got my mtech2 front bumper! i picked up a replica at umnitza, i made the 1 hour trip to the warehouse to save on shipping:)
while there i saw umnitza's m5!

the style 189 wheels looks nice and the mtech bumper will sure make it look even better.

The "rims" is the appearance. Way too substantial/large looking for the car. Overwhelms the body.

And very serious.

ImSoFreaknWhite 06-21-2012 06:18 PM

looks good, very clean mods

white46 06-21-2012 06:29 PM

Style 189 looks 1000x better than the original rims you had. :thumbsup:

Bmw0224 06-21-2012 06:41 PM

The wheels are just 18's i have no clue how they can look overwhelming? Oh well haha.
