Hello everyone...first time poster here on the forums. I bought a 2000 323Ci w/ premium and sport package last September and I love it!! I am currently trying to find some M Double Spoke 68 rims and have yet to find a site where I can find a good deal. Any suggestions???

I am also in the process of replacing the high, low and fog lights with PIAA H7 and 9006 bulbs. Does anyone know if these bulbs are good for my vehicle??

I appreciate any suggestions and/or comments. Thanks

Good choice on rims. Those are one of my top favs.

All the info i can give u is, MAKE SURE THE WATTAGE IS CORECT FOR YOUR CAR. None of that 100 W crap. just stick to 55 w, or fear melting your headlight wires.

will do with the pics. it's titanium silver with black interior. i had the windows tinted black and ended up having the problem with the sensors in the back (saw another post about them), so i'm going to have to get that fixed. i believe the next thing in line is the wheels, then the radar detector. anyone know if the Escort Passport 8500 is really one of the best??? Thanks for the info.

the V-1 and 8500 are both highly competitive and are both the top of the line. not to sure which one is better. My opinion is the V1 is better.
