Talking Xi noob

Proud Xi owner, first BMW. Sorry no pics of the mistress yet (bad weather=no sparkle)...coming soon. I picked her up and started the mod lists: can do now and want to do. So far, after searching the forums, I have done the "golf tee" mod, the AUX install, modded the air-box, added the K&N, got me some 2500K PIAA's for the fogs, new rubber x4, home made clutch stop, hard wired X50, swapped the cup holder for the Euro-tray.

Coming from a 4x4 truck/offroad background, this is only my third "car". I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I cannot seem to break the tires loose, even with the DSC turned off. I guess you need a lot more torque to bust loose all four at once just like a 4x4! At any rate, I love the forum, and I will have my pics up soon. Every pic I've seen has been very impressive, there truly are some beautiful rides out there.

LET'S GET TO 50

And here's a little reminiscing for how the xi was plagued with ginormous wheel gap

2003 325xi here. (purchased w/ 92k miles)

Baby came, and then I bough the 325xi for MY family car. (Wife has a PT Cruiser). So far only popped a K&N in there, will be tinting the windows, putting 18" on (16" currently) and probably get the LED lights in back.

Any of you have 19" staggered wheels? Looking to get some, but not sure how they would fit on an xi?

And I know there's a whole thread about the whole staggered wheels with the xi platform, but I personally don't run staggered for fear of the whole thinking your car is slipping controversy.

My Ride: 2001 330xi 5speed
Wow can't figure out why I never came across this thread till now? Didn't know there were so many Xi owners on this forum!

I have a 2001 330xi 5speed manual with "sports package and HK sound"

I haven't really done that much to it yet....so far I have...

H&R sport springs (pics in the sig are with the wrong H&R springs for a 330i, so car sits a little bit lower now actually)
Koni adjustable shock/struts
18"x8.5" with 265/35 tires
aux input for ipod
angel eyes
smoked lights
messed around with the front bumper abit "don't have pics of that yet"
clutch stop mod "really don't see the point of it though?"
