New member ( hello )

I just bought a 2000 328i and I must say that I love it. With the aid of the immense amount of info this forum has I should have no problem getting to know this car. Thanks!

Hi... & welcome

It is a very nice car,,,

Slight suggestion- if I may; take the ///M badge off the front grill... It looks like its falling off anyways, probably because it doesn't belong there.

Car looks in great shape though, how many miles on it?


Congrats on the purchase

Thanks.

Yes, I was planning on taking off the badge. I just got the car yesterday so I have not found the time yet.

Car has 180k but runs and drives amazing. The interior is in great shape as well for its age. No cracks in the leather, dash is good, steering wheel is good, etc.

I'll take/post more pics when I find the time.

Yeah... Nice, take care of the PM, and that car will run great for a long time to come

Previous owner must have taken decent care of it as it looks great for 180k

Mines pushing 210k and still going great

I'm spending some time reading up in the lighting section of the forum. Once I have a better feel of things, I can make an educated decision on what lights to replace the tacky ebay lights with. Some links to suggestions would be nice if you guys don't mind spoon feeding me some info in an effort to help get rids of the lights quicker.
