Hello all. I'm new to the forum. I just purchased my first BMW (2000 323i Sedan). I have a lot of mechanical experiance and am looking forward to learning a new car. previous experiance has mostly been rotary engines. This car has been a pleasant surprise since i picked it up. i have noticed a few issues with it since its a used car and have been researching solutions. i need to repair the passenger side window regulator soon. the washer fluid resevoir leaks, and im having some intermitent a/c problems. also just installed a new set of Falken 912's.
i have seen a few upgrades i would like to do to the car once all the issues are repaired and would like you alls input on them. i am looking to install the bavarian autosports high performance ignition coils and performance programmer. also interested in instaling a header but am unsure of fitment because vehicle is and automatic (auto tranny getting a complete service next week!).
Single ugliest thing on the car are the headlights. pitted and cracked and scratched. need some recomendations on replacements. seen a set on ebay but don't know enough about them to make a good decision. here's the link: eBay Motors: BMW PROJECTOR E46 ANGEL EYES HEADLIGHTS 99-01 2DR W/HID (item 170235241801 end time Jul-04-08 19:00:51 PDT)
give me your inut if you will or recommend something else. i dont have a problem with the stock lights, they are just wore out and making the whole car look bad. i am also curious of the location of the outside temp gauge sensor. thanks a lot and i look forward to talking with you guys about cars.
