I've heard many great things about that event, and I really wanted to go for the inspirations. Next month would be great! Please keep me posted.

Grand Rapids. 2000 323Ci. Full Body Kit (front/rear spoiler-side skirts). 18" Antera Deep Dish (255/35/18 - 225/40/18). Xenon Heads. White Laser Turns. 30%Tint. Exhaust.

Always looking for someone to work on DIY with, as well as bounce some mod ideas off of. The car is getting old so the only mod's that I plan on doing to ol' girl are adding a Cosmos V2 CAI (this weekend) and adding a chip.

I will work on getting some pics up this week.

Turns out my alpina replica lip is for sale due to an unexpected change of plans with the car. Looking for around $150ish. Fits pre-facelift coupes and has never been installed. Anyone interested, let me know

Just bought a blue 2002 325i 5 speed manual w/ sports package! I love the car, but I have so much to learn. I already need to fix a few things (rotors and o2 sensor) and would love a good resource for parts/maintenance.

PM me if you have any recommendations!

Rotors and pads are a so easy. Have a good floor jack and get 2 jack stands. Search for the forums or youtube for DIY's... there is a TON of information out there. Where in Michigan? I am in Grand Rapids.

I'm also in Grand Rapids! Yea, I think I can do the work myself and would love to, but I don't know anything about cars and I'm afraid to learn on this thing in case I mess up haha.

solid Grand Rapids representation here. XoDuZz, clean ride, well done.

Have you guys ever used this shop:
Euro Autowerks Inc***8206;
9240 Belding Road Northeast
Rockford, MI 49341-9435
(616) 874-7932
euroautowerks.com***8206;

Had them do an alignment a couple weeks ago... was pretty impressed. Will definitely use again.

I would be happy to lend a hand if needed, or let you borrow my jack stands. Let me know if you need anything.

I used a Bavarian Auto kit that included 4 sets of pads and 4 rotors, plus the 2 brake sensors. $305 right now, which is a solid price.

Wow that would be wonderful! Why don't we wait til this holiday madness passes and I'll send you a pm sometime next week? In the meantime, I really need to get an oil change. Any recommendations on a place around here? (When I said I don't know squat about cars, I wasn't kidding haha, although I will learn to change my own sometime this summer even if it kills me)
