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 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
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
Then the accident sorry babe
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!
Mtech II #umnitza is on, car is now in the bodyshop getting painted metallic black and bodywork
Next thing is two toning my doors, might paint the plastic black, I might have a guy do it for me.
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 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 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! Edit: Added in where I bought my stuff from, look for the hash tags
