my first beamer

i just purchased a 2000 323i sedan with 90k on it. my first beamer. already in love with it haha truly an amazing car. Seeing as my car didnt come with an owners manual I have lots of questions. I am looking for a website or somewhere I can go that will have an online owners manual or somewhere to order one from.

In the mean time, I have a list of mods I would like to get done within the next month. Was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction..

cleared corners, and side markers
red/white tail lights
since I dont have HID's im looking for the headlight size so I can get some silverstars for the time being.

any help is greatly appreciated

Hi, for HID install, I'm going to recommend Umnitza (sorry Jlevi!) because they come with the entire housing with angel eyes included, and it's plug & play (no tapping into the computer).


As for side markers, I'd go with Jlevi, cheapest.

As for tail lights, I'd go with Umnitza Again. They have a better selection of tail lights.

Umnitza is known for their lighting expertise, so if you have any lighting situation, I'd go with Umnitza. Jlevi is good for about everything else.. from tuning to interior.

Welcome to the club! I recently picked up my 2002 325i and love it.

Here's a link to check out clear corners. These are the ones I just got for about $30 on ebay. You can click on the link to review the seller's feedback and products.

Good luck!

Headlight bulbs are H7, fogs are 9006. Don't touch the bulbs with your bare fingers when installing!

Enjoy the bimmer. Out of curiousity, what work was done on the car before you purchased it (in terms of replacement parts)?

Correction: Foglights on the 2002 - 05 325i sedans are NOT 9006. They are H11. I just installed new ones.

Hootie,

Here is the link for your manual...

http://dave.maisenhelder.com/bmw/Fil...ual-3Sedan.pdf

If you take off the remainder of the hyperlink after the word "Files", you can find all kinds of manuals.

Good luck and congrats,

NicB.

P.S. - If link doesn't work, PM me and I will email it to you.
