Here's my 2005 Silver Gray 330xi...after many years of modding

After polishing my car all day on Wednesday, I decided it was time to show some of my more recent mods.

I added both front and rear MTech II replica bumpers. Thanks to Tommy G. over at Coleman Autobody for a beautiful paint job at an unbelievable price.

I also had my whole interior upgraded from gray cloth to black alcantara: the entire headliner and A, B, and C pillars.

I followed my friend's suggestion and added a black alcantara with gray stitching Coby wheel and matching black alcantara auto shift boot and e-brake boot. The flash on my camera makes everything look gray but I can promise you that it's all black- NOT gray.
-Thanks to Mike at Coby Wheel for doing an amazing job and getting everything done so fast. Also, a big thanks to James and his crew at Xclusiv Autosports for doing this install for me.

Some other mods you can see in the pics are my black M3 seats with power, memory, heat, and lumbar. I also added matte chrome interior trim pieces along with a matte chrome auto shifter and e-brake. I finished off the chrome look with Khoalty gas, brake, and dead pedals.

And finally, I can't forget my rear view mirror with hidden compass and garage door opener controls.

Some of my "older" mods include clear corners and tail lights.
Authentic AC Schnitzer roof spoiler.
Intravee ii iPod player for factory navigation.
Upgraded xenon clear "lenses" with Osram CBI bulbs- thanks Caesar at Lightwerkz.

I have some other mods I haven't mentioned yet. I'm waiting to take some more pics to post up.

Feedback is always welcome.

I went to ECSTuning and got the part #s I needed. I then called my friend who works in a BMW Parts Department and he beat their price. I also bought used M3 sun visors (they're $140 each new) which saved me a pretty penny. The shop I used rewrapped my headliner and pillars with black alcantara.

That's next on the menu. I need to find a nice set of used wheels first, and then I'll drop her.

Thanks for the responses so far everybody.

Here's my 2005 Silver Gray 330xi...after many years of modding

Looks great, wheels would set it off. I can't wait until I do my interior, where did you get your shifter from? I got the BMW performance shifter, but yours looks nice as well

I bought it from Tischer BMW. It was a long time ago but I think it's called matte chrome- just like trim pieces.

The seats are from a 2006 E46 M3 with like 20,000 miles on them when I bought them. I had to reuse my sedan outer rails (the side closest to the door) for each seat to make them fit.

I second this but would change m3 trunk lip to ACS trunk lip, and OEM wheels to apex arc8!
