Hey, I just got my 98 328i and I love it!!! It runs great and it's everything I've imagined. Sorry, I don't have any pictures of it yet but its red and completely stock so there's really nothing to show lol. I'm planning on getting a CAI, tinted windows, lowering it, and a remus exhaust to start off and maybe some rims later.

Um, whats your price range for the cai? Also, its not that hard to install just takes time there are plenty of guides that explain how to do it.

There's no price range at all, unless it's rediculously expensive lol

Make sure its a true CAI where the cone goes below the driver's seid headlight. I have a Dinan CAI on my 98 328i...pretty easy to install, if you look down by the headlight you will see one of the two horns. The one you see needs to be mounted somewhere else. I mounted mine right above as you can see in the pic.

Good luck and happy driving!!!

Cool car man... Just like mine, except red.. I have a black one, with tint, and tan interior. You have got to love the cars.

Great acceleration and great looks, in and out. I just got mine a week or so ago. I still have no manual, but I actually enjoy learning.

I just learned today that the sunroof has a "vent" mode! I didn't figure it had one since the roof if metal... Surprise. lol
