My Ride: 05 M3 Vert/11 X3 M
03 Topaz M Sport Package.


Seamless window visors
CCFL Angel Eyes
Red Gauge Needles
K&N Air fitler

Future plans:

New M steering wheel
M3 seats up front (if I can find a good set)
M3 side mirrors and rear view
Spacers front and back
LED Angel Eyes - Cold weather and CCFL leaves me with no DRL some days
50% tint all around
Windows up with key fob arm
Sunroof close with rain sensing wipers

I have always contemplated changing my rims and taillights but with the Topaz blue, the amber in my taillights, and the M68 wheels truly show that European look that BMW is. Any other color, I would have changed the tail lights.

My Ride: E46 ZHP TS2+ Coupe
2001 330Ci, Jet Black.

Mods that came with the car...

1) AC Schnitzer muffler;
2) One resonator removed;
3) ECIS intake system with K&N "universal" cone filter;
4) ///M3 strut bar;
5) Magic pixie dust that made it as fast (maybe a hair faster than) a ZHP. (It's now a bit faster due to the headers. If I were to put my 17" wheels back on, it would be that much quicker.)

Mods I added...

2) Koni STR.T shocks and struts (mine were blown, so I guess this falls under maintenance?);
3) Replica Style 220 18" wheels, 18"x8" front, 18"x9" rear.
4) ///M3 replica bumper;
5) Yellow fog lights (2500K Nokya bulbs);
6) Replaced projectors with some Chinese replicas (mine were hazed and wouldn't polish up; cutoff is now sharper, too);
7) Two extra power outlets and a USB port (for charging purposes only);
8) Auxiliary input (installed in row of DSC and Hi-Fi Sound buttons);
9) Parrot hands-free bluetooth system (connected to steering wheel controls);
10) BimmerBrakes.com headers (coated by Jet-Hot);
11) Umnitza Predator Orion V2 angel eyes;
12) 3M DI-NOC carbon fiber vinyl wrap on trim pieces (want to install cube trim instead);
13) UUC EVO3 SSK with DSSR and ZHP knob;
14) ///M3 steering wheel;
15) Powerflex control arm bushings;
16) ///M3 motor mounts;
17) Solid transmission mounts (or damn near solid).

Future mods...

1) Lightweight single-mass flywheel;
2) Non-self-adjusting clutch;
3) Euro2 tune;
4) Hotchkis sway bars.

My Ride: 330CiC M-Sport
Bone stock 330CiC. Have 3rd child about to enter college, thus no mods. Even if I had the money, I would prob only do an exhaust.

My Ride: 01 330i Sport MtechI
Completely stock aside from a set of aftermarket angel eye/projector headlights.

I've focused all of my time and money returning a formerly neglected, beat up 330i back to it's stock glory. From there I may add a few upgrades, but nothing crazy as I love the cars the way they rolled out of the factory. They handle good, are zippy when you punch the throttle and ride nice.
