My Ride: 2001 BMW 330i
Sahara Beige Metallic 330i

Just wanted to use this thread to keep a log of changes to my car from day 1. Can't say I've seen a lot of Sahara 330's out there, so hopefully I can make mine stand out from the group!

my starting platform


and my first "simple" modification...

Style 19's are only a temporary setup, I am currently running stock wheels with Hancook Winter Pikes (came on car when I purchased it) so I need another set of cheap wheels and tires until I can save for some nice 3 piece custom wheels.

No parts have arrived yet....had an engagement session tonight, and was waiting for the couple to arrive so I decided to snap some of the car since it was just washed! Yes I know my hood & bumper need adjusted





Clear corners come this week, and if the seller of the wheels ever gets me tracking, I'd have an ETA for when that project will start!

I wasn't referring to the OE wheels.

Best of luck.
