Looking back now I wish I had spent a little more time setting up some of those pics but it always seemed like I was trying to stay ahead of slower traffic I had passed shortly before. If you're bored, the rest of the pics are here.....

Yup, not a whole lot of BMW's around here but I see more and more all the time. Don't know if you know but our local Chevy dealer used to sell BMW as well about 30 years ago. I am in the Bismarck area.

I have a brother living in the Hills so I get down there quite a bit but it was usually on my bike (BMW R1200GS). Tough decision to make next summer.....take the bike down there or take the car.

I to see alot more BMW's around, not so much in the north central part, but its so rural anyway. I did not know that they sold BMW's in Bismarck other then used of course.

Sorry dude, maybe just my opinion, but personally, I think that thing is hideous. It looks VERY JDM. Mine as well throw on some Altezza tails along with it.

Nice ride brudda, but please get rid of those amber lights...clears, smoked, anything but amber. Sweet wheels too, a tad bit flashy for my style, but I love the silver black combo.

for sure...I'm thinking fogged too, but still debating. I'm also going to put in some HIDs as I only have regular 6000Ks in right now and they just don't satisfy

thanks . I don't really mind the amber too much, just prefer the clear/smoked ones. Definitely getting black grills too...the stock ones are just way too shiny.

Smoked!!! I think clears would stand out too much. The car's definately a killa!!

Did you move you antenna to the front about the rearview??

Thanks man! It's a sirius radio antenna...I wanted it hidden, but was told it had to be mounted externally (something about not being able to attach it to a steel plate inside?) ...not that big of a deal tho.

Why did you need a separate sirius antenna? This 02 has sirius ready antenna it has the right plug to go right into a sirius receiver.

I wasn't aware they came sirius ready...even the '03 325i? Oh well...I really like having a seperate display and the blue lighting in the car, but being able to change channels using the steering wheel controls would definitely be a plus.
