The 323i/323ci Thread!!

Hey if you have a 323 show it off, I want to see what everyone else has done to their 323i, performance and aesthetics. I know of a few that are some of the nicest "Looking" bmw's on this forum. We are starting off slower than the rest, what have you done about that?

HERE IS a link to an amazing 323ci build that is still going on i think.

2000 323i here.
This is my first Bimmer, so I've been trying to figure out my style, and I think I've got it now. I'm just waiting on my old car to sell so I can pick up new wheels. I have about a 1.75" drop now, and I'm trying to decide between 18" and 19" wheels. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna go for some Beyern 5s, but I don't know what size. Any suggestions? Anyway, onto the list:

Current:
-Clear corners and sides
-LED tails
-15% window tint
-Monochrome emblems all around
-Eibach sportline springs
-BSW stage 1 speaker package
-p46 6000k HIDs with LED Angel eyes

Waiting on:
-Dynavin v5 w/ GPS
-BSW Subwoofer system
-H&R Front and Rear sway bars
-Eyelids
-Sedan Lenses for headlights. Jlevi sent me coupe lenses, but the new ones are on their way, thanks to their awesome service.

Does anyone know the part number for the section of my lower grille that's missing? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Well, the roads where I live can get pretty rough, and I'm afraid that if I get a bumper that sits lower than this one combined with my drop, it'll lead to a lot of hitting. I'd probably go with the MTech II if I ever change it, but at the moment, buying that grille piece is more in the budget than a whole new bumper and having it painted. :p

OP go with Gold AEs, like OEM! Reds look PINK lol... I used to say I was supporting breast cancer when any samartarse would bring it up... and it gets old lol

I have gotten pulled over for driving w/o projectors at night ONCE, since I run HID 3000k fogs and the guy mentioned the color but I just said "They came with the car and I don't know anyone who works on BMW electronics, and dealer won't touch them cause they are aftermarket lol"... Though by now I know which sides of town I can run them w/o a problem; otherwise I shut them off since they are taped into my fogs!...

Matter fact I got pulled over by a Sheriff, NO LIE, a few months back, and all the guy did was give me a and said "Awesome lights son, original, different and match the car nicely!... Have a nice day!"... I was left scared, embarrassed and confused
