My Ride: 2000 328ci
Whats up everyone... new member in So Cal

HI, I just wanted to finally introduce myself. My name is KC and I drive a topaz blue 2000 328ci, which I have had fun playing with it for about 6 months. Any time my car has done something stupid, or made a strange noise this has been the place I go and "search", and 99.9% of the time I have found my answers on how to fix it here. Thank you everyone for being so helpfull...

Hi KC, I'm new to this site as well and it's my daughter that drives the 2000 323i. When something goes wrong with her car, suddenly I'm her mechanic because the dealer is crazy over priced. We live in Florida and hope one day to surf CA .

hey everyone, thanks for the kind words. I have spent a decent amount of money and time in the past few months trying to make this car cooler than it was when I got it... im not intrested in spending alot more money on it. So if you guys can give me some ideas for some "cheap" mods that I have missed, your feedback would be greatly appreciated !! for example, I have been thinking about blacking out my window trim ?? Also I have 18" Hartge nova 3 rims on it. I like them personally, but I have not seen anyone else on here with them... is that a good or a bad thing ?
