My Ride: 1999 328i
First time BMW owner

I am 25 years old and just graduated from college. A few months back my dad offered to trade me his 1999 BMW 328i and an engagement ring for my 2004 Nissan 350z (I def got the long end of that stick). The BMW has 188000 miles while my Z only had 40000, but I know I will be able to keep my new car for many more years with a little effort.

I have been browsing this site for some time and have learned more than I ever could have imagined.

My goal with the car is to transform his BMW into something that speaks to me. I don't want to be driving his BMW, I want to be driving my BMW. The car is Sea Green (say what you want, I love the uniqueness of the color) with tan interior and wood trim. I have been browsing looking for the kind of things I want to do, but if you have an recommendations, they would be greatly appreciated.

I love the look of the e46 and am not looking for anything that will detract from that look (no gaudy spoilers).

I hope it treats you better than the Datsun. They say geniuses buy green cars.

I liked the Nissan but I'm not a single college student anymore. I need something that can provide more use than picking up girls.
