My Ride: 2002 325Ci
I'm working on my interior now. Going for a two tone look.
This is a WIP of it.
Got Aluminum Pedals, new OEM Black mats, Satin Shift Knob.
Still to come: Silver Gauge Rings, special ordered black boots for the shifter/emergency brake, and a carbon fiber emergency brake.
After that, I'm planning on dying a section of my door panel black so it's more two tone.

Thanks bro. I'm trying to do things on my own since the closest stealership or good Indy shop is like 2/3 hours away. Lol living in a small town sucks. Anyways, well I tried to install the ACS lip n I did it the wrong way. Lol so I need to readjust the bumper, the passenger side is kinda off.

My Ride: depends on the mood
Not in college anymore but thought id share anyway, Got my '00 328 in September of 1999, it got me through college in Vancouver,BC (UBC) and then survived 4yrs of torture in Philadelphia while I went to Temple University. Installed quite a few mods while I was in Philly, some of which (like swaybars, uuc shortshifter kit) while I was parked on the street with traffic... yeesh what was I thinking. Shes had her fair share of door dings, bumper scrapes and vandalism during her time on the east coast. Never quite worried about parking in dirt lots or the ghetto to find free parking near Temple lol. Luckily I was able to retain all the original panels, and shes eluded any major accidents. Then followed me to LA for a few years to serve as a daily driver, where she recieved some work at RMS to fix her ailing subframe and some other mods. Now she is back with me in Vancouver,BC and serves as an occasional daily driver.

Even my friends dont think I should get rid of her, so many memories. I just got her back from a shop couple weeks ago, every piece on the car was refinished, they went all out. The last time it looked this pristine, it was still 1999.

Please disregard the yellow reflectors and the lack of a hood emblem, still waiting for some parts to arrive.

Damn, I am so jelly ...I saw an e24 m635 in my area but it had an e30 engine swap and it was going for something like $1500, is your car all stock or at least replaced with stock parts?

Its completely stock and original in every way and will remain that way since I have collector status plates for it. I spent this past summer restoring all the mechanicals. The body is decent but in need of some tlc, hoping to do a full strip and resto next summer.

$1500 for an M635 is nuts, must not be in too great a shape. Pristine concours quality cars M6s can go for as much as $30k or more, but more common examples usually around $15-18k.
