First time bmw owner...and I love it!

So I just recently got myself a 2004 330XI. 128k on the dash but is in great shape. I live in CNY and the car was from PA so no rust thankfully. Already did clear corners, got a Thule roof rack for $50! And got clear side markers. Working on saving up for some more mods but school loans suck!

Thanks, yours is real nice too, I actually just went through your progression thread. I'm going to be painting the grilles all black and possibly the inner headlight domes black and throw on some AEs.

Thanks buddy. If you're going to paint the headlight shrouds black, I'd recommend getting clear corners with the black trim like I have, as opposed to the silver ones you have. It'll flow and look a lot better IMO

Yeah that's my plan, otherwise it is too much of that chrome look, it'll flow way better with the black trim

So I have decided that before I really worry about doing a bunch of mods to make it really nice, I'm going to go through everything under the hood and under the whole body (i.e. fuel filter, air filters, cleaning the MAF and ICV, CABs, Pre-cat o2 sensors, VANOS, check the valve cover gasket, check fluids, and check the cooling system/possibly do an overhaul) and luckily for me, when I bought the car, it needed both CV axles and the guy I bought it from replaced them no charge

Welcome to the site, I remember I went from a 2007 cobalt ss to a 2002 bmw and I as afraid it wouldn't be as nice inside and the overall feel and look but boy I wrong. I remember I was showing everything the neat features of the car like the auto level headlights and auto wipers.. I've had mine over a year now and I've put 24k in one year for business so i think im about to do a full overhaul.
