Hey guys

just wanted to say hi to all, been driving my BMW for six months have had some slight problems with it. but nothing major, 2000 323i the problems have not been that big of a deal for me becuase i am somewhat mechanically incline, i go to school East of toronto for mechanics.

im sure i will be asking advice on some things, and bare with me im new to this whole forum thing.
ill be posting pictures of the process of droping a new starter into my bmw as it has some starting problems, i assume it is a bushing or maybe the solenoid in the starter and apparently they are nothing easy to get at.
please leave any tips for me and ill keep you posted
ill post pictures of my bmw aswell!

Nice, is it blue or black?, and I THINK you have swirls or somethin and need a paint correction shown in the last pic near the tailight, and I think you need to redo your tint cuz it's turning purple.

no good

Its a Navy Blue and the tint was supposed to math the car being a very light blue tinge.
its the way i got the car, i thought it was stock to be honest.
unfortunetly someone from down my street reversed into her drivers rear door and ended up in 3000 dollars worth of damage.
shes in the shop already but ill be posting before and after pictures.

Welcome buddy, mate for the age of the car the condition and paint condition looks very well. Yep it would benefit from a little detailing but whos car wouldnt benefit from that? Sorry to hear about the smash but as long as it comes back looking good and no one was hurt.
Your starter problem might just need taking of and cleaned. Good luck.
