here is mine. Still a work in progress





I used electrical tape to cover my roof rail "holes" :shifty





2000 323iT/5. 160k miles. H&r springs (OE sport). Bilsetin Sports. matte black roof. ZHP wheels. Dinan exhaust. 3M tints. DICE iPod kit. LED license plate lights. Euro plates(next week). 545i short shifter(will be installed in two weeks). No roof rails. Clutch stop.

I hope to get some hr race springs or maybe some ST coilovers? Or should I get BC racing coils?

ANY comments and criticism is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

*******

My Ride: 01 325it Wagonator
I am goign to try the ISC coilovers on mine. I just put a set on a car they seem decent enough. And we have them with semi high rates 8K frotn, 10K rear, 18x8.5 inch Anthacite CSL replica's en route.

YUP! I taped mine looks ok for a temporary fix.. AND got 1-1.5 mpg better on highway.. .

Anyone paint the roof rails body color? and leave the black seal?

My Ride: has a D-Pillar
I'm installing new rear shocks tomorrow-- but I need some advice on getting to the rear shock mounts (I purchased some Rogue RSMs).

Does anyone have advice on how to take apart all of the trim? I started this process, but there is a lot, and its not easy. Any advice or links would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Phil

fold down rear seats, remove the plastic trim covering the rear seat belts and the remaining upper plastic trim - there are a few other 10mm plastic buts to remove, remove the side panels (battery and stereo covers), the floor panel and the plastic trays that cover battery and hold tools. then remove the carpet panels on each side

it isnt hard but there is A LOT more to take apart than in a sedan or coupe
