I don't have the money now for a full suspension job. My mod plans now are just the interior trim, a hid kit, the wheels that i'm getting very cheap and that's it till winter is done. (i might need blizzaks)

Once spring hits I'm doing suspension, rear bumper and custom exhaust

Nice looking car! I like the idea of angel eyes and black grills, but I think your color is one of the few that the amber lights look great on. Just a thought.

BTW, looks like you enjoy the outdoors too.

Hey guys im thinking of buying this car. It is a 318i from 2001. It has 138000 kilometers ( about 85749 miles).
The guy is willing to sell me the car for 5500 euro's (7656 dollars). I think it's a good deal. What do you guys think? And what do you think of the looks of the car?

If you thinks it's a good deal and you want it, i don't see anything holding you back. It has nice wheels, upgraded bumper, low miles and looks to be in nice condition. Look into the past maintenance of the car. If all seems well, go for it!

The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Extra credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3" not "I'm looking for a M3".

Jake you're a little random sometimes. But your car has come a long way. It's gone from Nice to Nicer.

Really ambers?? hmm I got xenons wouldn't that look funny? but it would go with my DRL's
dang I was getting ready to order wheels and angel eyes now i gotta do more research
anyone got that link to the fanatics site that has all the different angel eyes in one thread?

and yes I do enjoy the outdoors. I live in the boonies on 2 acres I'm about 10 miles from the congaree national park and several rivers but I tell you what it is friggin hot today no more outside today!

When I mentioned the amber lights, I was referring to your current DRL,side markers and tails. Just suggesting that you don't need to mod to clears or smoked signals. I think wheels would be a good investment along with the angel eyes.

Haven't visited Congaree yet. Still traipsing around Pisgah and Smokey Mountain National Parks.
