IMO, that third pic would look so much cooler if you had angel eyes, but it's still a nice car

get forever black or something of that nature, and clean up your bumpers/skirts/ect. the trim will get a newer look to it and will become a darker shade of black

Beautiful. I had a 1995 325i vert, with Saddle interior. I loved that car. The stick shift was awesome. I also had the same tail lights and headlights as you do. You'll love that car. Pure driving pleasure!

Thanks guys. And thanks for the tip, Doug.

The car drives beautifully but I wish it had less miles on her so that I can track her this summer. Maybe an E36 M3 may have to be in my near future.

Okay i know this car isnt amazing and either are the pictures. But keep in mind i have purchased this car for 1500 and it only has 70000 miles on it.
i know there is a lot of snow on the car.
and for being 17 this car is perfect.

wow man thanks for the awesome response's

i was just saying there there was a lot of snow because the car was like covered and you couldn't see the whole thing so i just threw that out there. but yeah i used to live in Quebec city and that is a lot of snow! you would go out in the morning and have to search in 20" of powder snow to find you're car(unless you drove a hummer)

Pros

the car has brand new front suspension.
new brakes all around
new wheel bearings
new water pump
new fog lights, the old ones were broken and the water in them kept shorting out the system so i replaced with those after market ones you can see,
there is a brand new set of Ws-60 blizzaks on the car.
its a 5-speed
70,000 original miles.
no problems with the car except a person rear ended my mom when she was driving it causing some damage not a lot. but because of the accident the exhaust was replaced.
summer tires are also brand new and they are 225-60 r17's? on after market rims
the engine has always been stock and never modified.
mom babied this car
one owner(my mom she bought in 1994 with 00000 miles on the car)
convertible top with new rear window(crystal clear)

Cons
the door panels had to be screwed to the door frame because it was the only way they would stay on
driver side door doesn't open from outside
the inside of the rear windows are peeling away like the cloth(does that make sense?)
expensive(overall)
me being 17 and having the ultimate driving machine on insurance is not cheap its about 748 per 6 months so about 1500 a year.
if the car breaks down i am screwed.


thanks for all the positive comments, and keep them coming

People say i drive a chick car, but i sure don't drift like it!
not drifting more like sliding over the snow but... you get the point.

dont let people tell you you're car isnt sweet i mean, it is a BMW after all.
