Work in progress

Work in progress. Calipers and rims.

Does anyone have ideas on what to do with the orange on the front of the car and the side of the car?

You can get replacements pretty cheap for the corner markers and side markers in clear or smoked. Check our sponsor pages.

Also, Holy crap you're using the Widow-maker for maintenance?!!
If you want to stay alive get a real jack and stands.

Just a jestful way to point out there's no Konig, GReddy, NOS, Nitto or Sparco products installed in your vehicle, yet you have the decals lining your rear windshield .

No, it's not literally illegal. It should be, though.

Actually i do have NOS inside But likewise, i have the decals up because i'm supporting the equipment they can provide. The awful looking stock painted black rims are temporary until i can find some black sparco drift rims

Hi BMW323i LiFE, I'm doing fine.

Your query is ill-placed, friend. This thread is for pictures of your car, not generalized surveys. Perhaps your own thread would attract those that have knowledge on aforementioned 'deep dish rims'?

Pulling into Penn Automotive... you can tell their specialty.




Finally home, it's been three and a half days.

I'm flattered, subtlety is my favorite approach.

So far I've only added the CF air box cover, the Tanbus HID kit, privacy tint, and debadged her. I'm looking for the black/white BMW emblems now as the next mod.

How many miles? - I love the fact that every car I've seen on this forum , 100pct so far, has no visible body damage. Such a step up from the Honda game, haha
