Thanks all.

And no, I have not yet put my beloved 323Ci up for sale yet. Still have some things to decide. Like whether or not I want to keep the leather/cloth interior or swap with my all black nappa leather M3 interior I have in the Coupe. It really is a big change going daily from the M3 to the 323Ci. It's amazing how quiet the Coupe is compared to the M3.

a few more things arrived today


seeing how one of the front corners had a damaged mounting tab i figured i'd see how i like these, grill will get the surrounds painted bodycolor for a cleaner look.


this needs to be painted, just wanted something subtle and i always liked the CSL diffusor. i think bmw designed a real winner with this one.

Not sure which look I like better. The Clear corners



or the Smoked..


I don't normally like "Smoked" but the tint matches the dark/black headlamp inserts so it flows better as one complete headlamp/corner. The Clears would look better with a silver headlamp insert like I was running on my 323Ci.

I love the no sunroof I normally don't like smoked either but they do flow better. Liking the mods so far, keep up the good work!

UUC Clutch Stop/ Oh Sh!t handle

Added the UUC BigBoy Clutch Stop. Helps a bunch, yes I know one can make a cheap one with a carriage bolt.


And here's me in process of adding another oh sh!t handle to the drivers side. It screws right in after you take off the cover plates that are there. Then just snap in the covers and done.


And swapped in some BMW oem Wide-Angle mirror glass for the passenger's side. Helps with those who hang in the blind spot.

The smoked looks good. Interesting combo with the interior and no sun roof.
I agree, after driving in a regular 3 the m's do sound loud.

Clear Bumper Reflectors

Decided I didn't want to wait to have my bumper reflectors shaved like euro bumpers at this time. So in the meantime, figured the Clear bumper reflectors are a closer match to the color and stealth. No more orange bumper reflectors.

Carbon Fiber fender grills

Although I'm not a big fan of carbon fiber as a decoration..I do like the how the CF fender grills look. Especially against the Titanium Silver paint. Add that my oem one were quite faded. So these add a bit more sporty look being darker, and let a much detailed look closer up in person. I think there may be many not liking this mod, but I like the look and think it will tie-in what theme I'm going for, subtle yet sportier.

been very busy to do any updates on this thread (also had/having some headaches on another forum to deal with trying to get back a lot of money).
but plenty of things have been done. here is a little teaser of something bought from a member here this week.



and yes that whole box weighs like a 100lbs and is filled with new in the box genuine german bmw goodies like what's shown on top, anyone want to guess what it is?
