Hello all - '04 325i

Hello, just joined here to ask for help with a problem I'm having, but I might stick around for a while, cuz I really enjoy my car, and I love showing it off XD

Anyway, here she is:

I've had her for about 5 months, and in that time I've upgraded the HID's, plasti-dipped the rims black, and smoked the tail lights. I plan on eventually upgrading the headlights to LED angel eyes, replacing the fog lights with HID's, and perhaps do something crazy like get GloRyders for the wheels.

But before all that, a few things I gotta fix: sunroof, wheel alignment, shocks.

It's a labor of love.

Please DO NOT get GloRyders. Keep the car clean, stay away from rice. I like the looks of it so far. May consider powder coating the rims instead of plastidipping. Lets see more pics

Yeah, you're probably right. I like the idea of GloRyders more than GloRyders themselves. I'm going to stay away from powder coating the rims, only because it is permanent, plus, ridiculously expensive, and why bother if I can get the same look from plasti-dipping? There are tons more pictures on my profile.

Looks good, welcome. As stated above powder coat them. It will look better and last longer.
