My Ride: 2003 325i
2003 Red 325i from Texas!

Hello,

Wanted to finally introduce myself on the forum. I bought this car about 2 years ago after searching for the perfect one for 5 years. This one caught my eye and I haven't had any regrets. Bought the 2003 with 59,000miles and now just turned over to 106,000miles.
Ive been following this forum and keeping up with my maintenance from the well respected members. Ive attended one Autocross event with the suspension factory stock. Planning on finishing the suspension this coming month to make the February or March Autocross event again with my new Potenza re970as. These events are truly learning experiences.
I have slowly converted friends to BMWs. 6 of them with all e46s. Since I am mechanically inclined and almost worked as a mechanic for an indy BMW shop, I help them with anything that arrises.
Things I have done to mine so far:
Beisan Vanos
Spark Plugs and all coils
oil housing gasket
both rear bearings and axle seals
refreshed my center console
repaired sunroof
voltage regulator
of course, cooling system refresh but radiator which just started leaking. Going to replace that this weekend. Also have new Meyle HD control arms, bushings, oil sensor o-ring, and reinforcement plate bolts for this weekend.
Pulleys
Transmission fluid and filter for my GM unit
Strut tower reinforcement plates
Rear shock mounts and reinforcement plates
Disa and all intake bits.
Replaced many parts, mechanically and cosmically, just to keep the factory fresh look.

Waiting on my Bilsteins, sway bar bushing, brackets, and links now..

Im planning on heading to Bimmerfest in May! Hoping to meet fanatics and have a great time!
