Meet Tessa

Hey all, this thread is mostly for me. feedback is awesome but I just wanna keep track of my car. I bought her in may of last year with 131k on her, ran great and I've since clocked 151, regular oil changes and such. Had some battery issues i had to fix so anywho here's my baby
02 325ci silver, grey interior, daily driven so dings and such
cf wrapped roof
k&n cold air
magnaflow exhaust
xxr 521 staggered 18x8.5/10(not much longer)
falken tires (not for long)
some bullshit suspension setup from previous owner
nice cf lip on my trunk

Let's be clear. I'm third owner, and the previous was #hellaflush, #stancenation, #lownslow, #nofatchicks
I'm not about that life. lol cracked a sideskirt, broke my heart. I appreciate the xxr's on the car but I want something meatier and a better fit
this weeks addons will include
m3 csl matte black 18' rims, 8 up front, 9 rear.
Throw some brand new tires on there Goodrich, got them for a ****in steal I wasn't about to complain
and bc br coils
So I'm gonna lift it a bit, see how much clearance/how close the fitment is on a non-m (also if i need spacers?) but the xxr rears were 10x225x40x18 so something tells me the 9's will be a much nicer fit......
Also this means I'll be throwing some xxr's up in the classifieds for midwest if anyone is into that look... here's a couple pictures as is and I'll post them as the build goes.

For the future I'm planning to drive this car until it dies and I can invest in something off the lot so my goal is :
trans swap
possible headers?
some simple stuff like a new lip/bumper
some m mirrors...
not really sure where to go from there, considering I already have the bolt ons and i AM keeping this as a daily any suggestions are welcome !!

hope you all enjoy

I'll be sure to take some better quality pictures when I get the new rubbers on

BTW this is a chicago driven car so raising it a tad is out of courtesy to that beautiful machine: speedbumps suck

Haha whoops, didn't wanna leave too many loose ends for criticism since I'm new..... that being said I really don't know much about chipping or headers as far as brands or whatever else so specifics from anyone are appreciated! Even if they're just opinions
