My Ride: 01 325it Wagonator
I'm going to fix the lack of power problem later... M54B30 with upgrades.. I don't need a ton more power to have fun on track.. yet...

I could run down guys at VIR in the instructor run group in the twisty parts.. Then they would have to slow down and let me by on the straights... e36m3 brakes on track worked great!

Picture of the Wagonator with suspension and brakes done, M3 wheel, red needle mod and silver gauge rings... crappy pictures but all I have

Looks like its sticking out to far.. but if that's the look you want go for it.

I can't stand tire stretch... reminds me of Vdubb crowd...

It took me a few weeks after buying this car to realize it was a facelift hood on my pre-facelift car. Sort of like an OEM Boser.

You guys are definitely maxing out these wheel wells. I can appreciate the style points but for most, your speed and braking will suffer.
Regardless, I don't think anyone would've even thought to do some of these things a few years ago. Back in the day 18x8 35mm would've been "radical", LOL.

Almost makes me want to try and put my M-Systems on my touring just for $hits and grins...

Dam.. your right that hood is so subtle..

Well I tried putting M systems on mine from my 540 M sport. I didn't really like how they fit/looked..

Love the m parallels but that's a lot of camber on front to get the 9.5 on there

^Huh. You are right. Now, isn't that just strange. I need to contact the previous owner and see what contraption this hood is...

its an illusion because of the red surrounds make it look smaller like a preface

That is certainly a pre-facelift hood. Here's some reference.
