Since I've read through many broke college kid threads. I decided to make on to bring all the college kids together :rofl: post pics or vid clips of your continued progress on your car. Show us what you got! Edit: Post what college you go to.

I have a 2000 323i with 134k, bought it in February. Replaced shocks, just replaced the control arms and bushings, also the endlinks. Mods I've done are khoalty matte black grilles and smoked side markers. I have a big list of small things that need to be done...fender liner extension, brake pads, radiator, engine and tranny mounts, new mtech II bumper, LED tails and angel eyes. I think after all that's done I'll be good on maintenance and mods.

Have had my 325i for 4 years now, got it when I was a freshman in college. Up until recently I haven't done any mods to it, just preventative maintenance. But now that I have some extra cash in my 5th year of school I have been modding. Did an HID retrofit, Angel Eyes, LED interior lights and tinted the windows.

In first year university in london Ontario, picked up my 2001 325ci two years ago for 6500 bucks. Only mods are eagle eye tail lights, smoked side markers , some tint and an pulley kit from ecs. Mostly just preventative maintenance and needed maintenance like a new ps pump. its got roughly 180000 kilometers (not miles, i don't understand your American ways).

I think that out of all of the college kids on here, I'm a bit behind everyone else.

But it runs perfectly! Just can't go anywhere. :(

130 000 km and I've installed eagle eyes LED tail lights, smoked clear corners and side markers.

I'm also waiting for my magnaflow exhaust which should be arriving at the end of the month.
