Yeah, it is. I need to play with the fitment on the sides and actually use screws. other than that it all sits well.

I don't know why I've been lazy! I am missing both roundels, front and back! I am gonna order them tomorrow. by the end of this week everything should be done except for rear brakes and rear parking brake shoes. I hope that doesn't cost me an arm and a leg.

The only comment of yours that I must disagree with (and find a tad bit borderline insulting) is your comment, "A shitty 2000 323ci turned into a facelift coupe."

There's nothing shitty about the 323i/ci. It's a BMW and yes there are better BMWs out there in terms of performance, etc. but it's still a great car for what it is.
Thanks man. No, I haven't been. Shoot me a PM!

I will post more photos by the end of the week to show progress. bumper fitment and roundels will definitely be done.

Thanks a lot guys for your positive comments.

Looks great, only thing I would have done is shave the plate mounts and cut out the fog bracket. Eyesores IMO Love the color as well.

I don't think there's a fog bracket. That round opening is for the intake. Btw the roundels are on. The interior is done. I'm loving the heated lumbar supported m3 seats. I just gotta go ahead and refinish my wheels. Any suggestions as to what colour i should go with the wheels?

looks nice
i hope you shaved off the roof's "bee stinger" antenna

i originally came into the thread thinking it was another 323i facelift (misread your title of 323!), happy to see it was a 323Ci

looks like a pretty good job... I need to get mine painted. I ordered all the parts and now need to get them painted for a good price.
