when I had the plasti dipped hardtop now sold - it was red.
when I had the painted black hardtop, before I blacked out the chrome trim and had Miro rims:

I know...seat belt cover on drivers was flipped around, corrected since.

...before plasti dip:

within the last 60 days I have had another alignment, oil change, spark plugs, all new coils, new Thermostat, fuel filter done...saving up now for an exhaust system. Oh and just installed an aFe intake Tube:

Cool - Nice looking car! You have the trunk lid I want...

I wonder what your car sounds like?

If you ever sell the trunk lid or hardtop, I want it.

you should've had the hardtop painted when you had it! mine was originally jet black...i left the roof black and had the sides painted.

my car used to be louder...it got too obnoxious so i like the way it is now. i went through a combination of a bunch of setups -catless, euro cats, unresonated section 2, resonated section 2, gruppe-m replica muffler, uuc muffler, aa gen 3 muffler. what i have now is by far the quietest (headers, euro cats, stock section 2, aa gen 3) but i like it for daily driving.

here's a more recent pic from yesterday:

I live in Fremont and commute to San Jose as well, lol but I'm not surprised as by the traffic it looks like everyone else is too. I'd post my convertible pics too, but on the ipad at the moment. Feel free to check out my garage in my profile though. Maybe I'll post in later.

I've got an '03 330ci with plain old silver. My hard top is steel grey, which I think is a nicer color and more interesting. My daughter and I designed some graphics using Forza and am thinking of applying them. Let me know what you think...

Here's what it looks like now. My passenger side door is fading and the clear coat is gone. Figured its easier and cheaper to just apply Vinyl to make it nice again.
