My Ride: 99 BMW 323i
Talking Im a new Guy!

Hey Everyone!!! I'm finaly a part of the BMW Family let alone the E46 Family. I bought a 99 Blizzack 323i Sedan and have already started the tranformation process.
So far I have put on new headlights (Getting switched with DEPO Xenon Halo's with CCFL Angels), CX Racing Coilover Kit, K&N 57 series intake, Injectors, Coils, and 19" RPM 505s wrapped in Nitto Tires.
Things that are on the way....CSL front bumper, CSL one Piece CF lip with adjustable tension rods, DEPO Xenon Halos w CCFL Angels, Smoked Corners, Smoked side turn signals, CF CSL Trunk, CF Siebon OEM Hood with NRG Hood pins, and 3M CF Vinyl wrap for the Roof, Mirrors and Pillars.
Things to have by end of summer.....Side Skirts, Rear bumper, Dual exhast, and YES YES YES Stage 1 HPF's Kit!

Let me know what you all think so far as I will be figuring out how to put up pictures (need help) as I go......STOKED

19 RPM 505's

CX Racing Coilovers

Updated pictures! Got the front bumper with the Cf splitter. Gotta paint it this week and throw it on. Installed new headlights with clear corners as well as the smoked side markers. Also Got the CF Siebon hood on but not to noticeable. Let me know what you guys and gals think. As far as all the dumb questions about my car being broken..I got it fixed...slammed it to low and bottomed out which broke my trans oil pan and senor

I will be posting some pics here soon. Just adjusted the coilovers so its a little lower. As far as the HPF's kit IDK for sure I still have to look into it if they make one that would be good with my car...if not then I might even do a M3 motor swap if possible.

Yeah a M3 swap would be sweet but who knows...I wanna just get the car looking good and make it strong before I start sticking a new power plant into it.....Gottalovethexi.....Yeah why would I put a M3 motor in a 4dr Sedan Hmmmmmmmm???? I guess the real question would be....WHY NOT! haha I could very easily buy a M3 but I have done a little research on BMW's and I think it would very cool and "Something Different" compared to the normal stuff. By the way I dig the look you got going...Thing is Sexy!
