My Ride: 2003 BMW 325i
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

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

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!
