My Ride: 2001 330i
Smile new from P.O., WA

Just wanted to say hi to everyone and introduce myself. My name is Niels and I'm in Port Orchard, WA. my wife owns a 2001 330i 4D with auto and custom 19 rims and thats about it. I once owned a 2001 325iT with a 5 speed, black on black, with 18 inch stainless rims, lowered, heavily tinted. Nice car, however although my wife CAN drive a stick, but doesn't like to so it went. Too bad BMW never put the E36 2.8 L or E46 3.0 L engines in their US spec wagons, then I would have never let my wife convince me to get rid of it.
Prior to the 325 wagon was my first and probably favorite BMW (not for creature comforts or luxury)- a 1997 328i four door with 5 speed. It didn't handle or brake as good as my wagon or the 330i, or have nearly the interior comfort, but it was FAST and fun to drive- they are light and easy to flip around everywhere. Oh, and LOTS of fairly inexpensive modification potential. That car met an untimely death at the hands of a fully loaded gravel dump truck pulling a pup also filled with gravel while parked at my mechanics- just after I had installed new EBC rotors and green stuff pads. Oh well, at least the insurance company gave me really good coin for it- probably more than I could have sold it for.
So, anyway, there is my BMW story. I don't modify my cars for speed anymore (because my wife won't let me and Well, its an automatic!), but I am always looking for good places to find aftermarket parts, like brakes and so forth on the internet- as well as factory parts. So if anyone can help me in that matter it would be greatly appreciated.
