[QUOTE=lamsv;16627317]OEM matte black grill inserts where installed last fall. They do look so much better than the grills that came on the car. Now I really want to black out the window trim though!

Ohh daymn !! Now that's what I'm talking about , I resprayed mine literally as soon as I got the car

Have you done anything interior wise ? I haven't skimmed through all the pages, so I've probably missed a picture or two.

Heated sports seats where added by the previous owner. Only items I have added to the interior are a double din stereo, sport steering wheel, and custom wrapped dash/door trim. Otherwise, it is as stock as it was when it left the factory.

Looks fantastic with the Style 32's! Awesome choice! I agree on the chrome shadow line trim. I want to get mine vinyl wrapped soon.

I have a OEM ZHP muffler on there now. I have no idea how it compares to the stock 325i muffler in terms of "performance" or sound.

Replaced the front control arms and control arm bushings with Meyle HD's a month ago. Next up is replacing the output seals on the transmission and rear differential. Otherwise, this car has been super reliable.

Loaded up the wagon and took the family out to the San Juan Islands this past weekend.

Replaced my differential output seals. Also, turns out my transmission output seal wasn't leaking. It was the oil filter housing. I found that out after my accessory belt tensioner sh*t the bed. Also replaced the rear, lower trailing arm bushings. That was fun.

Playing around with new wheels. Photoshop of RPF1's. Much like, do want.

You may want to check with these folks and see if they are still available.

There used to be a number of sources for these wheels, but this was the last one I've found.

They let me put 4 into my cart. I went as far as checkout. But I am not currently sure that it's in my budget to drop money on wheels this month. The site didn't say anything about them not being available. Got any pics of them on your car?

You mean beyond my sig pic?

OK, you're probably using the app and not seeing it. Hang on.

BAH, none at work. I'll have to post some when I get home.

Awesome. I think I am going to try to get an order in soon as I am finished with my chassis repairs.

What size tires are you running? I am thinking about trying out 225/35 R18. I know that most people go with 225/40s but I am looking for a slightly thinner sidewall.

I know! I'm not a huge fan of red coupes and sedans, but I love the touring in red. Oddly, I feel the same about TiAg. I was unsure about mine, but after a few days I realized I love the touring TiAg. I really like the gray tourings as well.
