I bought them. These are real rxs and I got him down to $600 because two of the tires need replacing and there is a small bend in one of the wheels, very minor though

My Ride: 330Ci Euro-Spec
Lots of awesome cars on here!

I personally live and study in Madrid, Spain, at the "Universidad Politécnica de Madrid" (Computer Engineering)

I have a 2003 330Ci which came with the full m-pack.

My mod list so far:
- H&R Front and Rear Sway Bars
- H&R Street Performance SS Adjustable Coilovers
- PowerFlex Front and Rear Control Arm Bushings
- Custom Built Exhaust Manifold with CAT Delete
- Custom Built Short-Shift Kit w/ Steel Bearings and Adjustable Height/Throw

Besides that, the car is running 18" V72 Style Rims with Bridgestone Potenza S001 (225/40/ZR18 and 255/35/ZR18) and the full m-pack in Midnight-Blue.

Replaced water pump and service pulleys, rebuilt steering-rack and replaced all vital liquids (DOT 6 brake fluid, coolant and ATF 'oil')

With the last oil change (Running Castrol Edge 10W60 with Shell Ferrari Engine/Cylinder Protector Additive) I had the whole oil pan removed, cleaned and then replaced the seal.

Just replaced the clutch with the OEM LUK (waiting for money to invest in Ceramic disc and aluminun lightened flywheel) and replaced all seals in the area as well.

Car has 160.000KM (yes, we do km here ;-) ) and running great.

Out of curiosity, how would you rate the BMW Performance Strut?

I'm still a bit doubtful whether it's worth it for me to go for the BMW part or trying to find a cheaper alternative from a reputable company?

I'd love to go with H&R, but they don't make the part, so I'm stuck with finding another brand!

Recommendations?

My Ride: 01 330ci


2001 330ci. 97k miles.

Bought it about a month ago. I'm a second year EE major at UCSB.

Mods:
Orion V2 6000k Angel Eyes
Smoked corners, clear side markers, clear tails and recently color matched front bumper reflectors
Interior LEDs
Deleted muffler and welded glasspacks on

Spent all my money I saved to buy the car so now I'm short on funds for modding :/ Saving for wheels and coils atm. PO was really great about maintenance so only thing I had to do was an alignment and washer pump.
