oops sorry no harm... I like those rims too. I just wished they were 17s. I test drove a 325ci with 16in. idk if drove funny because it had 16in tire or that it didn't have a sports package. Or maybe I wasn't just feeling it all together. lol

i wouldn't know the difference, I pretty much walked on the lot, saw her and decided right then and there she was gonna be mine.

Now that I got the gsx-r she's a parking lot diva, I think I've put twenty miles on her in the past three weeks, haha

Got those FC Bayern München valve caps.
I think they are funny add in car which was made in there. That team won German league and is going Champions League final so no problem about showing the logo.

Nice BLK325CI ! I just purchased some aluminum blah blah cleaner for the tailpipe. Brought the pipe back to new. You should try it.

I purchased the car with everything on it but when I called active, all they could tell me was its a 90mm pulley.. Other then that I really don't know other then the obvious things I can see. I need new pics for sure tho! I'm hoping someone recognizes it and can tell me more about it, I've only had it for 2 months!

If you get some better pictures of the supercharger, piping, intercooler ( if there is one ) etc I can tell you what you have np. And a pic of under the fuel rail to see the color of the fuel injectors.... Is there a boost gauge in the car by any chance?

Awesome! I appreciate it. It's dark now so ill have to take pics tomorrow. I know the SC kit is from active, the intercooler, oil cooler and all the piping have the active logo on it. Are the injectors under the plastic cover? Sorry for the noob question.
