Finally got my aux fan working after over a year if being dead. I wet sanded the headlights and will have my angel eyes coming on Monday. I need to pull my stereo out and dynamat the the trunk a little more. I have too much flex on the trunk sides.

Anyone in here go to USF? Or live in the Tampa Bay Area?

I found a set of replica 18 m3 rims in chrome. Think it would look good on a Black preface sedan? With tires they are only $340

Yea polished would look good.

EDIT: As long as your car is lowered and semi aggressive to pull it off!

The only bad chrome is **** like this haha




I'm looking to get some polished wheels also

I passed on them for the time being. My car isnt lowered but is low enough from the sport suspension I think it would look good without looking bad. Who knows.

My Ride: 2014 wrx, 2001 330i
Heres my short story:


I acquired my 01 330i as a senior in high school, my parents told me they would buy me a car if I received a full ride to collage. It had 75k on the od but was loaded up with the sport, winter and premium packages.

day I picked it up:


first "mod" I did was tinting the windows and buy a DICE ipod integration ... then as I was driving back and forth to collage I hit the drive shaft of a truck on the highway and bent two of my rims (also busted up my bumper and plastics but so far have not fixed them)

New ASA AR2's with low profile tires got installed one weekend i was back home:



during the time I was in college I replaced multiple window regulators, fluids, filters, power steering pump, vanos seals, vcg, spark plugs, tinted the corners , added a AFE cold air intake, chopped off the the muffler and other little things.






Then after 5 years and 50k miles I graduated and landed a decent paying job... First thing I did was replace the cooling system, radiator, water pump, CCV, oil gasket, all belts and tensions, transmission fluid and filter, every other fluid (except differential... it just scared me going to do it next), new power steering res and lines, replaced most of the vacuum hose and blocked off the SAP, replaced brake pads and rotors, replaced the corners and tail lights, added halos, plasti dipped my wheels, added a "shadow grill" and finally a roof bike rack.












I'm now at 150k and I'm compiling parts right now to replace the rest of the plastic and vacuum hoses, 02 sensors, DISA, valve cover gasket and vanos line/ seals (again), clean the idol control valve, throttle body, AT fluid and filter (again), differential oil, fuel filter, cabin filter, oil pan gasket and oil.


after this round I will just have the suspension, bumpers, windshield, and headliner left to replace.
