New Socal member - San Diego
 
Hey all,

I have been following a bunch of threads and even bought a few things from the classifieds...so I definitely thought it was time to introduce my lady and I.

2004 330ci steel blue convertible - non zhp :eek:

Mods to date:
** Wheels and tires upgrade (from ugly stock square setup to 1 series staggered)
** BMW performance (euro style version) short shifter kit
** Borla Exhaust System
** aFE Intake
** Conforti Chip
** ST Coilovers (thank you BMWespresso!)

Parts already ordered:
** Predator Orion V2 LED Angel Eyes 4300K - stock xenon color (thank you juslookin!)
** ASA SK1 Supercharger Kit (thank you Little Dragon!)

Mods Planning to Complete
** Blackout ONLY center of grille - keeping the edges chrome


To be honest, I love my baby...and I have been going back and forth about what to do next. Maybe wrapping the interior in the 3m d-noc matte black...? I kind of like the way the amber lights look on the steel blue...this color seems to not jive as well with the clear or smoke in my opinion...What do you guys think?

Here are some pics (haven't installed the supercharger or angel eyes yet)...

alien2936 10-05-2012 08:01 PM

Sweet. Figured there would be a few down here...perfect place for a vert too! Like your ride bro..

illestminimike 10-06-2012 02:13 PM

Thanks. My favorite member in the world lives in SD. I'm sure he will chime in soon.

That's with them installed...the angle might make it look higher than it is. It can go lower, but I gotta say I like this height so far - nice stance and doesn't scrape all over the place.

I'll try to post a picture or two from before so you can compare...

looks really nice, keep up the good work!

illestminimike 10-10-2012 06:01 PM

Just noticed the amber LED tails. I like them.

I just got some clear leds from an e46 vert...haha. I thought I would put them on and see which one looks better in person. Hard decision, but the clear is starting to grow on me now...

I'm going to be installing some angel eyes soon...so after I bake the light and take it apart...I'll take out the amber corners and see everything together.

illestminimike 10-10-2012 06:12 PM

I think the amber is better. It's more rare. Sell me those clears.

Haha...I'm going to give it a week and see how it plays out...
