I don't think your car is aggressive enough for a vented hood.

*cough* springs *cough*


oh and I don't think thats enough... I don't even think my car is aggressive enough. In my opinion you really need side skirts and rear to pull off that hood. Because if not then the front view of your car looks like a totaly different car than the rear, and it should all flow together/not be two cars.

I agree with the flowing part.
But I have a 328i so my rear is actualy already not to bad at all.
Much better then a 325i.
And your car is without a doubt perfect for a GTR vented hood.
Get one! lol.

Agree with the springs part for Mafia. As far as the GTR hood, I think if you want one, get one. I think they look better though on non-black cars. Reason being that the vents stand out more when the hood is painted AW for example and the black grilles get to show more.

Great! I'm ordering my DDM full kit right now. Not sure which angel eye and HID kit option I should go with on the right hand option selection. Looking forward to the pics!

Conz.
I recommend getting Umnitza ones instead.
There on sale for the same price as ddmtuning.
And Umnitza has better quality and much better customer service.
ddm may turn out to be much cheaper after tax/shipping.
But the extra $$ is worth it for quality and customer service AND a good warranty in my opinion.

Im checking out the umnitza ones right now and they seem to be better quality then the DDM's. Now I see that below the picture there are options (Xenon, Bulbs, Angel Eyes) Is that 249$ price not including these options? Because once I add the options im look well over 500$ ( selected OEM Xenon D2S, Bulbs Predator xenix, And orion V2s= 249$+ 200$ worth of options?) Otherwise I get no Xenons and No angel eyes, but black housings for 249$?

Yeah sadly that stuff is not included like ddmtuning is.
I actually had them remove the angel eyes so I didn't have to pay an extra $100 for them.
And I asked for the xenons but with no resistors. so instead of $100 I payed $65 for that.
