Well, everyone already knows what my car looks like, but I was looking through this thread, so I may as well.
I'm only gonna do a few more little things....if BavAuto is spending me handwritten cards I think I've spent enough...lol. Gonna nightshade out my front corner lights, get some really small red hood pins so my damn hood doesn't fly off, and maybe a few other small cosmetic things.
El-Supremo...nice rides and I guess kids deserve the best. Can you give details of your daughter's car, the rims, body kits etc. The body kit is nice..
I haven't started on her car yet, just collecting the parts right now.
So far I have M3 mouldings and an M3 rear bumper. I've got a Hamann exhaust and a Jim C cai. Authentic Hamann E46 sideskirts, ACS cup mirrors, and a LTW wing I plan on modifying. It also has DJAutos w/DDE.
I want to get a BCAutodesign front bumper cover. The rims I haven't decided on. I was thinking 18" or 19" Hamann HM II or PGs, most likely reps to stay on a budget.
Like with my boys car, I wait for deals on parts, then do everything myself. Having a buddy who owns a body shop helps a lot, too!
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.
It's been awhile since I posted here with anything new to add. Thought I might put up an update:
1. Bought cheap blue aftermarket mats to spice up the otherwise staid interior:
2. Lowered with B&G springs and fitted 17" ROH Drift R wheels:
* angles chosen specifically to avoid prominent display of drum brakes and towbar
I've done about 4000ks since I bought it, and apart from the exploded water pump and a (hopefully) minor wheel alignment/balance issue, things have been just fine.
Now here's a nighttime shot of the cabin:
Downgraded my cellphone to make use the pre-existing car kit. It even mutes the radio during a call!
With no prospect of finding a decent enough CD player with amber backlighting, I opted for a Navman PocketPC for navigation and as a music player...
