Lugs look nice Jake. How banged up did they get when you put them back on? ( From the pic, they don't look like they incurred any damage.)

This pic was taken by a friend of mine while he was standing on his car. I love how you can really see the reverse stripes.

So, I'm new here. Pick mine up tomorrow. Can't wait. 2004 325i, just over 60,000 on it.




Sorry the pics are not that of the extreme size that seems to get posted on here a bunch.
I can't wait to pick it up finally so I can get some good pics. Also have some ideas what I want to do to it (LED tail lights, clear corners and sides, angel eyes, etc.)

So yeah, hi!

Hi yourself

Congrats on the ride and welcome to the fest.

Nice car (though I may be biased). same year and colour as my 325i. Clears make a huge difference and with the silver grey and black trim, blacked out grills looks sharp IMHO. Oh, and smoke tint to get rid of the greenish OEM tint

Thanks! Yeah, I plan on things like clear corners and fender lights and LED tail lights with the clears. Have it all priced out already on DDM. I know I want to tint the windows but not sure how dark you can go in Ohio. Have to look into that. The other thing I want to do is change to Xenon with the Angel Eyes, but wiring has always been my nemesis. So I may be finding a shop to do that one for me. Oh, and some new wheels too.

All in time I suppose...

No front plate FTW!! Looks nice. But what's going on with your bumper's grill, or did I miss that thread?
