My Ride: 2004 BMW 330i
Im 20, a Jr at University of Oregon in Eugene. I recently (late July) bought a 2004 330i with 79k miles on it. I haven't done too many mods, just fixing things that the PO had messed up and doing preventative maintenance.

and small cheap mods like removing that evil effing CDV!

my plan with this car is to just save money for the issues that arise rather than mod it up.

good luck to all you broke college peeps! i feel your financial pain

Thanks! I bought it from a local fanatic. Got lucky because it went up for sale right after my incident and was already painted jet black.

Nothing huge.
Angel Eyes

Some of these BMW's are close to 10 year old..anyone with a job can buy one. It's the kids at school with the new stuff that make me shake my head. Probably 90% of them didn't earn their car.
