Get the bumper reflectors painted and put clears all around. Thats the first mod I did and I got my car a week ago. It also makes a huge differnece in your cars appearance. Order some silvervisions too from powerbulbs.com

The first thing you have to get is clears. Where in Queens are you from?

I would post pictures of my car but I dont have a digital camera or a scanner. Ask anyone on here though clears all around is the first mod you should get and its very inexpensive. Should cost you less than $500. Even less if you can install the lights yourself. Order the parts from circlebmw or pacificbmw. Buy OEM parts or else you'll have fitment problems.

Chrome exhaust tips?

Hey, great car, just wanted to ask where you got the chrome exhaust tips for your 325 and how much they were? Thanks for the help.

If your interested, my friend is selling Hamann 18 inch rims with tires. He's located in Jamaica Queens not too far from Main St. flushing.

I would like to buy chrome exhaust tips as well for my 323. How do you install them? Is there anything additional you need to purchase to have them stay on?

Well, as for me I work in the city so i don't really get to drive until the weekend just PM sometime.

Lilfame,

I believe that there is a screw underneath the tips that you just tighten for it to stay on.

Hammann RIMS no $$ tho :sad:
As for the chrome tips - they are very easy to install - just push them in and you're done

you just dont push them in. There is a screw with a washer tap that you have to screw in so it holds onto the exhaust.

nope.. mine doesnt have a screw.. The picture in the website does show a screw, thats why when i got it , I was like "What the..." but anyways all you need to do is push it in and your done.. and there's no way you can take them out once they are pushed in.. well, you migh be able to take them off if u cut the tip

re: chrome exhaust tips..

.. you may want to check with Pacific BMW or Cutter since there are OEM chrome tips and they may be less $ then 25..

and Congrats on the car - painted relflectors and clears with Silvervsions are the way to go
