Xtian's 2001 Alpine White 330i M-Tech1 Build-a-BMW

What's up guys! My name is Christian, I live in Los Angeles, Ca., and this is my build thread!

Bought this car on July 28, 2013.
Car has 119,xxx miles and is completely bone stock! I won't do much talking and just show you the things I have done throughout time. Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy!


As soon as I picked up the car, first thing I did was give it a wash and detail!











August 21, 2013.
First mod: I was contemplating on whether to lower my car or getting small parts like tail lights, sides markers, or angel eyes, but I went ahead and went with changing the tunes in my car considering that would be the most useful to me. I've been trying to look up used HK systems and finding all the parts and harness was just too much work and money for me. So i hopped on craigslist and found someone local to me selling his JL 300/2v2 amp and his JL 10" subwoofer. Picked up these two for $200.



don't mind the custom made subwoofer box. The guy I bought the system from gave it to me . I will be replacing it with a box matching my trunk carpet.



When installing my amp/sub, things still didn't sound right so I took out the front tweeters, 6" speakers on the front doors, and the two 6" speakers on rear deck.




Replaced them with some Sony 6" speakers.

Update #1

Alright guys, so over the weekend I was planning on buying some clears all around but my car had some mechanical issues. I went ahead and changed my belts, pulley, and pretty much my whole cooling system.


Pic of the bad pulley that put me in a money hole.




Got rid of these!


I was still able to get my hands on some clears and bulbs. The little things that make a difference


Amber LED's




Some LED license plate lights. I like this small little mod cause it makes a difference.
