^^ not feeling the spoiler too much of a stepped look for me, I would want it more integrated or molded.

Stuart - I dont recognize you with the new sig, whenever I see it I think it is someone new and stock.

Foxone - is that vinyl wrapped or actually painted orange? Not sure if I like it or not, but it is definitely a different look. Is that red interior stock?

Gripster - looks good, I like those wheels on the touring. nice pics.

Yeah I think the ACS spoiler is not an add on piece that get's glued on like this piece. So there's no step.

Painted orange. Stock tanin red interior you could order in '01. Doubt many dealers ordered red interior wagons to put out on their lot's though.

Thanks.

Nice bbk, I actually was looking at a set of 18" ACS type IIIs but I didn't like the finish.

My Ride: has a D-Pillar
1) I love this thread...and am for sure subscribed

2) I love Wagons. Always have been, always will be. My friends give me a ton of S**T, but they will never understand.
I started a website a couple of years ago devoted to Wagons:

VelocityResource.com

I try to post news, articles, road tests, and reviews on Wagons of all makes and models (there is a lot of BMW, I am biased)
Let me know what you guys think- I am always looking for more input/ advice.
I've also been thinking about adding a Forum/ user section...thoughts?

3) My baby
I got my 2000 323iT 2 years ago this May, and have only recently gotten around to Modding it (not enough of course, need more $$$$ )

Pics at the bottom are pre-modded (before mirrors, smoked sides and corners), and then a bunch a just took last week after my CF Wrap

My E46 garage when I'm home on weekends- next to my Dad's Eurospec 330xi he imported last year.

Also posted some pics of what I use my car for- lots of camping, holding kegs, and of course, Water Polo balls!

4) Future plans
I really want to swap BMW's 3.0L twin-turbo diesel for an E46 335d.
I think the perfect car is a twin-turbo diesel touring- very sporty, and super practical all at the same time (which is really what Tourings are all about...)

My Ride: 325i wagon
I hear you DinanTouring. I love wagons. Versatility is important in your life. I have also VW Passat wagon and GMC Acadia. I'm cycling, so my bike fit inside to any of my cars, where my friends have bike fixture on cars. I'm also looking at 335i twin turbo, but $$$ and economy is going to nowhere......
May be at end of "smart buy" GMC, I will pull a trigger. But Acadia is beast, I have be able to fit inside coach from Costco, but rear hatch didn't close all way down, may be another 2 inches.

+1 My main reason for buying a wagon was so that I could fit my bike

Got the mirrors from Jason @ Euro-Division

They are ACS Style Carbon Fiber Mirrors, but unfortunately they are manual....

Didn't feel like paying another $200 just for the power option

And its weight reduction!

$200 extra? Did you not just swap the stock motors?
