Bump indeed. My 323ci got hotchkis sways for christmas, and new tires/rotors are on their way. Hopefully that'll take care of the steering wheel vibrations I've been having.

What's up with everyone else's 323?

My Ride: Nothing
Just gave mine a good clean. Washed, clay barred and waxed. I have a second set of style 68 rims coming to refurbish, the last owner kerb'd the hell of this set! I will also be looking for some nice BBS 18's or something for the next NZ summer.

Yes, Mike @ CobyWheel did it for me. Highly recommend him. I just gave him my core triangle steering wheel (No airbag, or electronics). I have a spare core steering wheel if your interested in going the same route.

Thanks for the compliments

My Ride: 2000 E46 323Ci SE
Well this is my 323Ci as it is at the moment during a short road trip to Belgium (excuse the weirdo in the passenger seat )






Topaz Blue SE, running HSD DualTech coilovers, 18x8 ET35 front 18x9 ET40 rear CSL replicas finished in shadow chrome, black kidney grilles, weather trims wrapped gloss black, black & silver carbon fibre effect BMW badges all round, genuine xenons retrofitted, smoked Depo front corners, smoked Depo side repeaters, smoked Eagle Eye LED rear lights, yellow LaminX on front foglights, pressed metal plates (eurostyle), yellow painted brake callipers, grey M3 seats, Andirve AN46-3 headunit, JBL GTO-5355 amplifier running JBL GTO-609c components, JBL GTO-629 coaxials and a JBL GT5-12 sub in a ported box.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

I also have sitting around the house at the moment a front and rear MTech2 (MSport in the UK) bumper, MTech2 side skirts, an AC Schnitzer rear roof spoiler and a new wing waiting to be painted and fitted. I have just last night ordered a carbon fibre CSL style bootlid as well, although these are on backorder so will be a while before I get it. Once I've got it, it'll be going into the bodyshop to have all that fitted and a full respray as the paint is not in good condition. At the same time, I'll get all the arches rolled so I can lower it a bit more without having any scrubbing issues. When we went to Belgium, I loaded it up with beer to bring home and had about a 1-2cm gap between rear arch and tyre! So the rolling needs doing. Also a few dents here and there need pulling out. Only small ones, nothing major, but they're irritating. Lastly, I have a new steering wheel that needs retrimming as someone ripped off the leather. Good excuse to get it padded out and a decent custom job done
