My Ride: 2000 323ci
New to the import scene, from Austin TX.. pics

I recently made the jump from the otherside of the custom domestics to a newly acquired 323ci... Being a custom truck/car fabricator i've had several projects, and now eager to take a stab at a BMW, have always admired the E46 design..

last 2 projects



new to me 323ci



Within the next couple months I plan to be stanced, lip kit, and paint, then start an interior overhaul...

e.Fo.Six: Man that build up on the bug is just awesome, great attention to detail. Exactly how i'd of built that ride and big props on the INTROs, Especially in the south all the big dogs in truck scene rocked the INTROs.. I actually got idea to use an old style of INTROs on a bimmer when saw a stanced out VW Jetta on Slayers. tryin to come up with couple photoshops to see which route im actually going come next month when start ordering parts
