New to the BMW Scene

I wanted to introduce myself; I am new to the BMW scene, but not new to cars and modifying by any stretch. I am the owner of an after-hours appointment-only performance shop in Raleigh, NC called Urban Legends Motorsport (I am a mechanical engineer by day, but plan to make the shop full time when I can afford to). I have build many custom cars before, but being a Bimmer forum, I want to show you guy my latest project, a 1983 BMW 733i 5-Speed.

Previous owner installed:
-New Starter
-New Alternator
-H&R Sport Springs
-E28 Bilstein Sport Dampers, Custom-Valved
-BBS Front Valance

Since I have owned it:
-New vacuum hoses where needed
-All new fuel lines from the gas tank
-New Distributor seal, cap, rotor, ignition wires and spark plugs (OEM Bosch)
-Fixed all interior rattles, burned out bulbs, and broken pieces (except the cracked dash of course)
-New OEM oval shift knob
-New Clarion 4"x6" speakers all around, new wiring run along OEM paths, new shorty antenna run from JVC Radio
-New rear left outer window trim
-New front driver door inner trim
-2 new door handles
-Fixed Cruise control and OBC (needed new CC computer and the OBC fuse was burned out)
-Wanted more sound out of the car, ran dual 2" pipes into a dual in/out Magnaflow muffler with dual 3.5" Magnaflow tips (I have the rear muffler still if someone wants it)
-17"x8" Borbet Type E wheels with Cooper 225/45/17 tires
-New Coolant Temp Sensor to fix the hesitation issue once and for all
-New IACV Hoses
-New fuel injector O-rings (preventative maintenance)
-New OEM Emblems w/ bavauto dark gray vinyls

Future:
-New hood
-BBS Rear Heckspoiler to finish the BBS look
-Shadowline the chrome trim
-Tints
-A few other custom ideas I don't want to give up yet

Teaser shots for you:




And a cool concept shot taken by my buddy before we left Pittsburgh:

Welcome! I think I know of your work; I used to post on NCDubs when I both owned a VW and lived in NC. IIRC, you did some work for some of those guys.

It's quite possible, glad you remembered the name. I'll definitely check into the BMW meet...
