My Ride: 04 325i
DevC's 325i and such

Hey I'm new here and new to bmw ownership, been lurking around a few bmw forums and this is my favorite.

I just sold my Nissan Stagea, got kinda bored of it. I wanted an E39 540i, but couldn't pass up a deal on this 04 325 5-speed. Now that I'm getting on top of some maintenance and age issues I'm starting to enjoy it more and more. Like with the Stagea this is only a Daily driver for the non-snowy months.

I have covered
- Pads/rotors F and R
- Disa Valve repair kit
- Ambient temp Repair
- Polished headlights
- Guibo and CSB
- CPV delete
- Coded the Headlight module
- Shifter Bushings
- Plastidipped grilles

As far as mods are concerned I'm only planning some racelands to replace the oem stuff, poly control arm bushings, a replacement for the hideous stock bumper, and muffler delete.

I'm afraid all the pics I have so far are all business and no flash lol



Here is my current project, Its an 89 Volvo 244 that I'm working on swapping an LM7 into, trans is a T5 from a 5L fox. Sadly my budget is on the lower end of the scale.

Top half of the pic is 08 when I got it before it was sr20 powered, bottom half is 10 after the sr20 was sold and the car was stored till this spring





And lastly I have a 93 Legacy Turbo Wagon with lots of current little mods and a pending built motor, but it needs to stay a reliable daily driver for the winter months.

Interesting taste. Not so sure on the racelands. I'd suggest you Google some reviews before you make the purchase. I was planning on them and made a different buy after some research. The price is great but you get what you pay for sir, suspension should not be skimped on. I wish you the best and welcome.

Thanks

I have done some looking into racelands, couple buddies have ran them, one in a jetta and one was a Subaru, they faired well. Another buddy has got some Joms in his e36, all aimed for just getting low and daily driving of course.
I have been comparing the 2, but not fully sure if I want to even bother with coils for a bit.
