My Ride: 2001 330Ci
School: Kettering University (Probably switching soon)
Car:2001 Sienna Red 330ci
Miles: 118,xxx
Modifications:
AA Stage 2 supercharger
AA Sport headers
Polyurethane engine mounts/Transmission mounts
Magnaflow Exhaust
H&R cup kit
BMW Performance Rotors
Steel brake lines
Matt black Kidney grill
TRMotorsport C2 17x8.5 (track wheels)

Problems:
Rust spots
engine leaks a little oil
the dash lights have gone crazy
People seem to love hitting my rear bumper in parking lots
Bump in hood (Power steering fluid reservoir hit underside due to new engine mounts, need to talk to Active Autowerks about this)

I have paid for every modification and service on the vehicle. I just don't spend much on other luxuries. The only help I receive from my parents is for track days. The reason for this is that they believe this is a great way to satisfy my need for speed in a safe environment.

P.S.: I just realized that all the photos I have of my car are it at the track.

usually a two year college where I think you can receive up to your associates degree. People mostly go there either because they didnt meet the requirements to get in somewhere else or just to save money, then they switch out.

These rims are light weight racing rims not for running over potholes. If looks and least ductility is what you looking for then don't buy them.

^I'm pretty sure RX's are forged which would make them stronger than the CH which is a cast wheel. Also those are really light wheels and improve handling due to the lower rotational mass. If they are real RX's and not replicas then $800 is a steal. I'd buy them in a heartbeat at that price.
