Hope everyone has good luck on finals. I finished mine, and am graduating May 9th from Arizona State. So I guess I can't be in this thread anymore...

My Ride: BMW Greensboro
23, at GTCC

Things I've done to it

6 speed with 330 clutch and driveshaft
D2 coilovers
Hotchkis Sways
front custom made endlinks
full Turner motorsport reinforcement kit welded
turner motorsport oil pump nut kit
front hotchkis sway bar reinforcement kit welded
Hybrid 5 series shifter with 3 series shift lever
Front polished CSL replicas
Corner balanced 50/50
ZHP control arms
Every bushing is polyeurethane
Ebay headers with full custom exhaust and o2 sim
borla pro xs end muffler
zhp front bumper
20% tint
DDM tuning projector46s
yellow fogs
tinted tails and front lights
m3 steering wheel
k&n drop in
3.46 diff (which it had in the beginning but I destroyed, then had a 2.93 then sold that and then got a 3.46 again also destroyed my 5 speed and I had a 6 speed laying around that I put in instead.

old wheels same look


new wheels same look


Current 3 liter build I kinda got going on for her to match up with the 6 speed.





future upgrades include
full rear M3 swap including m3 lsd
rear m3 brakes
front 330 brakes
and finally making my car look good after all this mess

later in life if I make it bigger, is a supercharger from AA

I'd never have to get rid of this car because it's still a family car.

full time student and full time work as a laser operator. work now, play later

My Ride: 323Ci, 325xi
Friend of mine just finished Rowan.
I'm at Drexel, well, taking a leave of absence for the time being and taking classes at community to save some money for the time being.

Anyways, 325xi, 5-speed 2nd car. 1st was a 323Ci.
Recently just put new Depo headlights in with angel eyes preinstalled. Looks sharp but I might just want to get the multicolor ones at some point in the future. Tint by PO all the way around.
Muffler delete. Nothing special, yet.
It's gonna be a busy summer though. Got an M3 front bumper to install, headers, picking up CSL CF bumper Wednesday.
Planning on lowering it on some H&R springs and some struts, not 100% sure what set up I'll go with exactly. Only looking for an inch or so. Also some sport seats are necessary as well as some new damn wheels. Hate these things :/

Anywho, here's the new lights

My Ride: 2001 325Cic
Freshman at West Virginia University as a Mechanical Engineering Major.

I drive a 2001 325Ci Convertible (not at school because snow).
I have modded the car very little, LED License plate bulbs, and DEPO P46's (big $300 mistake) and changed out the amber corners for clear ones.
