jw 325ic - introduction

Hey all, I've posted here a few times but mainly just been using the DIY's for awhile. I came from the e30 world in an 88 325i conv 5spd, was my dad's car from 1990 then handed down to me when I turned 16 in 03. I drove it for 11 years as a daily and pretty much replaced everything on it in that time including all new leather, new top, all new hoses/filters/cooling system/seals etc...

While daily driving the e30 I had some projects cars: a couple of e30s, e28, e32, and a 23. I posted pics in the old schools thread.

So after getting a hail ding on the e30 in 2014 I figured it was time to park it and get a cheap daily. Didn't really want anything special as I was going to focus on the restoration of the e30 as there isn't much left. So I found this 03 325i, black on black ZPP auto with 115k (all the 5 speeds were gone by the time I got my cash). I hated the wood so I vinyl wrapped it gloss black, got a sports wheel, clears all around, and some other things:

I had big plans for it: h&r springs, mv1 wheels (style 68), black headliner, mtech2 front bumper among other things. Then out of nowhere I got t-boned. The other driver was at fault, she was turning left into the intersecting street as I was going straight through and hit me hard enough to do a 180:

So after walking away from that, I waited I think about a week and got my check from insurance as the other driver was found at fault and found this on craigslist. 2004 325i sport pkg, cold weather pkg, and premium pkg (i think). No obc though but I think it was a great trade up after the accident. I managed to save the lights and some other parts and put them on this one:
