My Ride: 2001 325I Sedan 5spd
New 2001 325I 5spd member

Hey guys/gals,

Im about to purchase my first used 2001 BMW 325I 5spd. I do have a history of modifying my previous vehicle for speed, but this time im gonna go a different route and just focus on stance. My vehicle came along with a few fixable cosmetic issues (missing BMW hood/trunk badges, missing rear bumper absorber, missing 325I badge, and tail lamps are different). Ive already ordered new badges for hood/trunk, on the verge of looking for he 325I badge, also ordered matching tail lamps, but I do need to know where I can purchase the black rear bumper insert. If someone can lead me in the right direction id greatly appreciate it. I look forward to gaining knowledge from u guys.

Luis

Hey, welcome to the forums! If I hadn't went the murdered out route with my e46, my next choice was white. I don't know what your modding budget is; but if I may, I'd like to make a couple of suggestions:

M3 Front Bumper. You are looking at about $200 shipped, plus another $200 for paint. Maybe even $100-$150 if you know someone. http://www.ebay.com/itm/E46-M3-STYLE...f16800&vxp=mtr

Red/white tail lights (Must have for white e46!) + Clear Corners + Clear Sidemarkers. About $185 shipped. I recommend Depo because they are high quality. That's what I have on my car and they don't leak or fog like cheaper ones. http://www.ebay.com/itm/99-01-BMW-E4...270c82&vxp=mtr

Projector Headlights w/ Angel Eyes. Will set you back about $200 shipped. http://www.ebay.com/itm/99-01-BMW-SE...dfe274&vxp=mtr


These are merely suggestions. It's your car, do whatever you want with it lol. No matter what, it's still a 5 speed e46. Enjoy it!



For future reference, use:


To look up part numbers:
a) http://www.realoem.com/bmw/select.do

To purchase parts, try these:
a) http://www.pelicanparts.com/
b) http://www.bavauto.com/
c) http://www.amazon.com/
d) http://www.ebay.com/

There's a ton of others, but just make sure to check a couple of different sites and factor in shipping to make sure you get the best deal!.

So here's the red/white tails on some white e46's. Also, if you get a new front bumper: when you get it sprayed, you could have them do all your black moldings as well depending on which look you wanted. I included a pic with the red/white tails with black molding, and a pic with the red/white tails with white molding:







The bottom one with the black molding is probably the route I would have taken. ZHP wheels with ZHP body kit

Hey thanks a lot for the info. Greatly appreciate the welcome.

As far as the look im going for its honestly gonna be exactly like these pics. Same rims and all.




Obvioulsy the only difference is mine will be white. I will definitely be changing the front bumper too. What I really NEED to know is what spacers and tires sizes were used to achieve this stance. Anyone feel free to chime in.
