Guys,
The long awaited photos of my 2000 Fern Green 328Ci (one of, if not the only, fern green 328Ci on this site [one of the only ones in the area]) are here. I made sure to take some photos of my clears, my jdm front turn signals, my ECIS intake, my Hamann custom cut, custom fit, custom welded exhaust (originally DTM but redesigned for my liking), and my incredible (not to brag) custom dension icelink install (which my friend and I did over about a weeks period). Hope you like.

P.S. Hope these hot pics finally put to rest the oposition to my "fern green metalic is the greatest color on a coupe EVER" lol.


BUT FIRST:... I need some help.... all of my pictures are around 700k to 1meg... how can i shrink their size but keep the quality so i can post the pics.. as soon as i get an answer the pics are going up!!!

cool. but in all honesty, i think you ruined your tips. The weld job is fully visible and its not that clean. Plus you have a severely awkward slant cut which I predicted in the first place.

The weld is visible but only if you got down and looked real hard. I wanted to do a close up from underneath the bumper so you could see my installer's work. You truly can't see the weld from any angle unless you are paralel with the bumper (in which case, you are a strange person because anyone getting on their hands and knees in a parking lot to look at someones exhaust tips has issues lol. Oh well, everyone that has seen the exhaust says they think its an incredible install (possibly because they can't see the weld because they aren't on the ground).

Plus, once I get a rear add-on, you wouldn't be able to see it even if on the ground like a taiwanese ***** lol.

No, the exhaust isn't welded on. The exhaust itself is bolted on but the tips were welded.

Simply put, I bought a Hamann DTM exhaust (with the tips that flare up in the back). After having it put on the car, I realized it HAD to go. The car looked stupid. I had this pretty green classy looking car with these big nasty looking chrome tips coming up out of the back. So, they took the exhaust off, cut the tips down, then cut the tips in half, and rewelded the later half back onto the base of the muffler (thus retaining the ponies I wanted so badly). What he was saying was that you can see where the exhaust was re-welded after being cut down. My point is that you can only see that if you are specifically looking for it and are on your hands and knees to be able to see that low beneath the rear valence.

What do you guys think of the exhaust, the clears, the jdm front clears, and the icelink install?


HOW ABOUT THAT GREEN?

I think the icelink is nice. JDM corners are maybe...its a toss-up. exhaust is also toss-up, cause i never liked hamann exhausts.. lol. clears are nice too, why not get LED? Man i wish i had LED tails.. :bawling:

green...Mmm... personally, i would've picked any other color than green. just not my cup of tea. But i see potential, if its done correctly and nicely, it would turn out awsome. :thumbup:

I've got a Fern Green Sedan :)

Where did you buy those clear front corner lenses from??? That's the first time I've ever seen front clear lenses like that. I'd like to get some for my car too.
