Yet another build thread
 
Just transferred over from owning 3 Volkswagens currently still own 2 outta the 3 and picked up a clean 2002 325i 5 speed
http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t...EE08334AC8.jpg
As stated did come from the vdub game so all about the slam stance life kind of stayed with me just wanted to build a car simple clean and yes stance
Picked up a brand new set of rokkor coilovers which ride pretty good for the amount they cost
http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t...EE0BD9D1D9.jpg
I don't know why they set me helpers no need for them
http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t...EE170899FC.jpg
Then picked up 2 sets of z3m roadsters because I wanted to run the 17x9 all around and wanted to stand out so had them powdercoated by Tom espo in Staten Island very good quality work and great on prices
http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t...EE0A21F4B5.jpg
Picked up a set of led tail which one didn't work thanks ddm tuning for your crap had to send one back tail are still stock for now
http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t...EE0DA4AF96.jpg
Couldn't pass up the 30$ lip trunk spoiler of course:woot:
http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t...EE18949EE2.jpg
Got the plate bracket delete and had to get a pair of angel eyes also picked up 3k set of hids for the fogs and 8k for the low beams
http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t...EE19BA8B32.jpg
http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t...EE1BAF7708.jpg
Awaiting my blackout clear corners due to back order from Ecs :banghead:
And now the best part once I got the coils on under 40 mins pretty quick easy install slapped the wheels on and dialed in the stance

http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t...EE2D226DD0.jpg
Because of how aggressive this wheels are all fenders had to be rolled as I do this for side work in the tristate if anyone needs

:rofl: Nahh I'm just so over the stance and stickers fad

YGOAMG 10-07-2012 10:27 PM

Thats well nice man..

To be honest when i see these "build threads" being posted im always skeptical..
But you've done well!

IMO.. forget the LED's... on a sedan the OEM R/A/R rear lights look better!

tehcbass 10-07-2012 10:28 PM

the thing i hate about bmws are that the wheels look too small for the body...

Don't worry i am getting vossen's sometime too lol. see what you say about that...

Barbaros 10-08-2012 12:42 AM

Disregard disregard.. I read it as if you have written "e46" not BMWs! lol What you are saying does not make sense, it depends on the size of the wheels. Slap a set of 26" and see if the car or the wheels are big lol.

Studdly_Studright 10-08-2012 01:40 AM

I like the progress...a nice slam is always a good place to start.

Feel like it gives the car a more aggressive look

///Mostarac 10-08-2012 01:07 PM

Looks great. Lose the stickers though. How much do you rub/scrape?

My favorite color basically why I bought the car aside from how clean it was

So Lowww 10-08-2012 06:25 PM

Bring it down like 1 1/2 '' all around and it'll be sitting nicely.

Please no Vossen's. All of their wheels are ugly and way too big.
