Great looking sedan! Tastefully modded and looks much newer than its age.

lol, hey I like the color on that 325ci.

anyway here's my 325ci, a few hours late. 119k. Dirty because this was the first day this year the snow melted enough to get it out of the driveway. Needs a lot, and I'm already into it pretty deep...

Thank you very much! It's not exactly original though. I made a few upgrades. I swapped in the sport seats, replaced the shifter and e-brake boots with a leather set from ebay, put in the ZHP shifter knob, and refurbished an M-Sport steering wheel I found at the salvage yard. I'm quite happy with it now.

Happy 3-25 Day!

Kinda late to the party, here goes: 325i 206,xxx miles, manual swapped it myself, just did the rear diff mount, which was fun.

Looking for a m-tech II bumper, if/when I find one, I’ll be respraying that hood...

Nice! That's basically what I did with mine except I have an auto, for now...

Just read your thread, that’s a lot of work that you have put into that amazing car, I’m actually on the same tangent as you when it comes to most of those mods, did you ever post any DIY’s by any chance?

Thanks! Yes, I posted a few DIY's on some of my retrofits but almost everything I have learned and done has been from existing DIY's and reading on this forum. I have been learning on E46Fanatics for over 15 years
