Yet another build thread

Just transferred over from owning 3 Volkswagens currently still own 2 outta the 3 and picked up a clean 2002 325i 5 speed

As stated did come from the vdub game so all about the slam stance life kind of stayed with me just wanted to build a car simple clean and yes stance
Picked up a brand new set of rokkor coilovers which ride pretty good for the amount they cost

I don't know why they set me helpers no need for them

Then picked up 2 sets of z3m roadsters because I wanted to run the 17x9 all around and wanted to stand out so had them powdercoated by Tom espo in Staten Island very good quality work and great on prices

Picked up a set of led tail which one didn't work thanks ddm tuning for your crap had to send one back tail are still stock for now

Couldn't pass up the 30$ lip trunk spoiler of course

Got the plate bracket delete and had to get a pair of angel eyes also picked up 3k set of hids for the fogs and 8k for the low beams


Awaiting my blackout clear corners due to back order from Ecs
And now the best part once I got the coils on under 40 mins pretty quick easy install slapped the wheels on and dialed in the stance





Because of how aggressive this wheels are all fenders had to be rolled as I do this for side work in the tristate if anyone needs

I will keep this thread updated as best as possible any questions feel free to ask!!

Thats well nice man..

To be honest when i see these "build threads" being posted im always skeptical..
But you've done well!

IMO.. forget the LED's... on a sedan the OEM R/A/R rear lights look better!

Disregard disregard.. I read it as if you have written "e46" not BMWs! lol What you are saying does not make sense, it depends on the size of the wheels. Slap a set of 26" and see if the car or the wheels are big lol.

Feel like it gives the car a more aggressive look

Bring it down like 1 1/2 '' all around and it'll be sitting nicely.

Please no Vossen's. All of their wheels are ugly and way too big.
