Yeah I saw that. Time attack sort of look. Not sure if I want that or not. I'm considering powder coating my wheels.

Hit a deep pothole off Murphys Lane Tuesday night in the rain. Severely Bent both rims on passenger side--have 2 on order, will be here next week, will post images of the wheels and pothole when I get the new wheels put on-- will need 4 wheel alignment also

Driving around in a new Lexus IS250 AWD, very small inside, hate the sound the engine makes, drives nice though and the transmission with paddle shifters shifts quickly and smoothly. Wish mine shifted that quickly.

Want to make the next OKI meeting--didn't make this one --other obligations--maybe I can bring my 344iC--if its nice out

Just slapped my new fuel filter in. Not a bad DIY if someone in the area has been contemplating it! Just make sure to have some sort of drain pain for the fuel. Not sure what a dealer or should would have charge, but the filter ran me about $63.

Got mine replaced at a shop, but they never asked if I wanted OEM or no so they slapped a NAPA one on.

Hmm... I actually went to a NAPA/AZ type filter at first (I mean it is a filter right?), well AZ gave me this:



Lets look at OEM:




Big differences, I'm really surprised they sold me the first one. I returned the AZ filter immediately when I saw the OEM. Who the hell designed the top one?

No idea. But if it holds I guess I can't complain.

Well see that is the weird thing, there are 4 hoses underneath my car, so I don't know where they get that two would work.

I saw a silver E46 Coupe lowered with 19" M6 reps today on Hurstbourne in Louisville. Great looking car! Unfortunately, I was in motion, so no pics, but it looked like an older guy was driving it. Wonder if he is on here?

My Ride: 93' 325iS & 00 323i
Hello all! Ive been lurking around here for a while so I figured I would introduce myself. I have a 93 325iS and a 00 323i, neither one of them are anything special, lol. Im currently living in Louisville and look forward to warmer weather and get out to some local meets and what not. Also, if anyone is looking for some style 45 wheels (factory 323i 16's) I have a set of 4 with almost brand new tires for sale. Thanks, and I look forward to meeting some folks

OK. Wheels finally came in. Replaced them. Seems that the rims aren't bent as much as I thought. One of them is good enough to use as a spare. The combination of low profile tires and lowered suspension compounded the dent in the rear wheel along with the camber settings being thrown out 2.3 degrees in front and 1.3 in the rear. I have to take it to evolution autosports for an alignment. Taking it wednesday. Will add an image of the wheel later. Wont let me upload from my iPhone

Thanks for the welcome guys! Heres a few crappy cell phone pics. As you can see I love Style 119's . The 325 just has tint and the wheels and the 323 has Depo Projectors with AE's,LED tails, black kidney grills and black/tan interior.

Got my hood, fender, and front bumper painted......putting the hood and stuff on tomorrow. Still need to take the car to BMW ( just once ), so that they can put that putty type stiff over the welds on the unibody pieces. After that, I can put fender on, and she should be back and running! Can't wait.

I've heard a lot of bad things about that place. Care to give a review?
