My Ride: 2001 325i
Hello

Just bought a 2001 325i. I'm learning as much as i can since I already have a couple of things i'll need to address. It has 194k! It's very clean, bought it from the original owner who was meticulous with services. I'm familiar with BMW's... started with a E28 that i did a Euro conversion on then i moved onto a few 2002's. Spent a little over 2yrs building a '73 2002 tii. A growing family and work kept me out of the garage on projects like that so I finally got the 325i as a daily fun car.

Anyhow, looking forward to learning what i can from the info you all provided on this great forum

Thanks, it was a really fun project that I changed many times. Glad to see i'm not the only one that changes wheels like some change shirts

I kept a blog on my build if anyone is interested in checking it out.

My 325i doesn't need nearly as much work but I plan on having some fun with it!

if it will turn out anything like your 2002, I anticipate great things from your 325i!

Thanks guys! Ya, the 02 was quite the project. Started out when our first daughter was 1 and it was easier to get out to the garage and wrench, when i was almost complete we had a another daughter and it was impossible to want to work on it. It was a great project though and don't plan on getting that crazy with the 325, but i do have plans . 19" CSL reps (flat black) and a suspension kit.... Right now I have to replace the clutch since it is still the original one.

I'm finding that it really lacks in storage so I bought a centerpiece with an armrest. I did take out the ashtray and removed the tabs to make it a little place to hold my phone.
