I drove it acouple of miles with no change> I cant drive with out traction control so I switched back. I thinl Im gonna sell it. The grey face doesnt match my interor. I only got it for the raised speedometer but I can use my GPS when I go above 150....

Yes the coupe csl style trunk will fit on a 323ci. Check the sponsors section and you'll find several brands being offered. The better fitting Vorsteiner CSL trunk will have the closest look to a true BMW desesigned CSL trunk without the handle over the license plate and recessed plate area. Other companies sell versions that look the same as a regular stock one with the duck-bill lip.

My Ride: 320ci
Hello, I will buy 320ci (99-01) and I have some questions. How much will it cost to euros and a full internal and external m3 tuning separately. Can I buy second-hand parts. How long will it take to given 2 boys from 320tsi>>> M3. Does it matter whether he has a manual or automatic gearbox?

My Ride: 330CI
I have just purchased 4 OEM 19 inch M3 rims and I was planning to put them on my 2001 330CI. I heard the rears will not fit. Is there anything I can do or do I just have to find another pair of front 19inch M3 rims? Thanks

well it should have been listed in the thread. But the wheels would bolt on, but the "offset" (how much the wheel is pushed out from where it bolts onto the hub) is to far out on the rear. Thus making the wheel/tire combo rub way to much for some and also cause suspension geometry issues that mess with handling and wear. Some say they put extra thin and stretched tires on the wheels that don't rub and/or rolled and flared the rear arch. But you really would need to find two more fronts wheels if you really want to do it without all those other costly hassles.

Thanks Alex I appreciate your answer and I just don't know where to start looking for just two front M3 rims and what could I do with my rear tires? You think people will buy just two rear M3 rims

That's impossible without major fender work. What you're referring to is fitting coupe headlights onto a sedan, which is just taking a headlight that was on a coupe and making it work on a sedan. To do that, all you have to do is swap the headlight trim and lens cover, then you can run sedan corners on those lights.

Your question is pretty common sense though... the corners just won't fit. One is round and one has a corner, so they won't fit in the same space.
