My 320Cd project

Hi,

I posted my car in the new member's section last year, but nobody seemed to notice, I hope it is not because of my car.

I bought it exactly one year ago.

It had sports package, 16:9 sat nav,heated leather seats, electric sunroof, PDC in the rear, style 135m wheels, automatic gearbox, Harman Kardon sound system, xenon headlights.

It looked like this, ie before the mods

I found a really nice set of genuine BBS Le Mans, sizes are 8,5 X 19 ET 32 all round. I fitted Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 tires (225/35/19)

Last update was a big (and expensive) shipment directly from Aachen in Germany, actually I went to pick it up myself. I bought a set of carbon fibre interior trim elements, a carbon fibre gearknob, the footrest and pedals.

Very nice work! That interior is lookin awesome as you've made some very tasteful changes.

What did you end up doing with the aluminum trim as I'm sure plenty of people on the board would love to take it off your hands?

Although I am not planning on selling it yet, I tend to keep all my original parts, selling parts and then getting it original again is alot more expensive. During the winter months I like to get it as OEM as possible. Every spring it's like building a brand new car

Makes sense to me...now you just need to update to a stainless exhaust since diesel will make those stock tips look rough over time.

They are Hamann PG3s. A few months ago I actually bought a set of these. They were 8,5 X 20 ET 38. But I sold them because I really love the timeless look of my LMs, especially because they are the real deal.

Here are a few pictures of the Hamanns

This is a photoshop of the rear with a double exhaust. I think it would be a great update, wether it be just a tip or a complete rear silencer.

No I don't have the CH wheels, but they might be a great alternative to the LM whenever I get tired of them
