Ok the car is 93 325is Black/Tan leather.
The car is bone stock execpt for M-Contours, Tint, M3 Mirrors, painted bumpers, and "newer head unit"
The entire entirior is new

OK got some questions.....

This car rides VERY differently then my old M3 and my dad says that rear shocks are done....

*Where can I get rear shocks for a decent price... I don't care about any drop right now or performance value just a new set of rear shocks....

*How can I tell if the M3 Mirrors and the Rims are real and not fake

*And last night the left front low beam bulb blew how much does a new bulb cost and how easy is it to install one I have never replaced a bulb in my life... Also the liscense plate bulb is blown and can you tell me any thing about that...

Congrats dude!

Shocks - TRy Nikis-place. Send Josephine a PM or email, she may be able to get a good deal on a quiality set of shocks. You may as well replace tehm now with something worthwhile and not have to deal with it later.

Lights - They are VERY easy to change. It's a matter of getting to the bulb and turning counter-clockwise to losen. REplace with new bulb, turn clockwise to re-install. Get a pair of bulbs though, you should always replace bulbs in pairs. Otherwise the second bulb is likely to go out on you before the new one does and you'd be in the same situation. As for where to get them - Any parts store carries bulbs, of manny different types. See hat fits your budget and go from there.

Fake or real - I have no idea on this one. Question is - does it matter?

suspension, you can try nikis-place or else buy a used set from someone's M3.

hehe i got me a car too

i bought a 92 325i Red/Tan Cloth or whatever but the main reason i bought it was because of the new engine the guy put into the car last year and he had the paperwork from the dealer to prove it and the rest of the car only has 119k on it and car is completely bone stock except for the a/c pulley has been removed because former owner dislike a/c but i gained some ponies

93 325is - SOLD (white car in sig)

Wink

Congrants on the new car,

Try us for shocks, we can provide you with several options, from OEM shocks to high quality drop shocks from H&R, Vogtland, Eibach, etc.

Fake or not:

Mirrors - unscrew the mirrors, if real mirror will you find some BMW related info on the basement of the mirror(the place that faces the car)

Rims - hmm, BMW related info should be on the inside of the rim, unscrew one and have a look. (I'm not sure - we use the invoices, labels and packages as proof)

Thanks for everybody comments.... Im still waiting on the clears, liscence plate molding thingy, black out grill and long eyebrows.....



Ohhhhh and let me tell you I totally F.... uped.


I was going to remove the 325is badge.....I din't have floss "because I ran out" so i used fishing line... the proble was that the fishing line was like 1 lbs test.

So i heated the sucker up and pulled it off with my fingers. The "is" came off beautifully and the "2" also but the "3" and "5" left some glue stuff. I aplied Goo - Gone and rubbed at it.... It was stubborn so I heated it up.. and tried rubbing again.... The thing still didn't clean up so I heated it more.....

After what seemed like minutes trying to pick at it I became nervous and got a small nail and used the end to "scrape" it off or try to get an edge.... Well after about 2 seconds of that I said F*** IT.


From 5 feet away you can even tell anything is wrong. because the car is black and the glue shit scorched to black... the actuall scraches I did are very very small and you can't see it but you can definetly see the glue.

I think the only solution is to take it to an auto shop.....

Can they buff that shit off or will they have to paint it??? And if they do have to sand and paint how much will it be?
