My Ride: 325i
New to the forum

Hey guys
I have a 2002 325i I picked up 8 months or so ago.
I love the car and I have done a lot of maintenance that the PO slacked on.
New: radiator, bushings, control arms, belts, pulleys, water pump, valve cover gasket, oil pan gasket, brakes... and some other things here and there.
Im in school to get my A&P cert so I do all my own work, otherwise id have sold the car by now haha.

But its a sweet ride and Ive finally have a break for repairs and did some fun mods. So I rebuilt the shifter linkage and installed a short shifter. About 30-40% throw reduction. And its great!
