Yeah I hear ya, I cant believe 18"s look so small, but honestly, they look bigger in person. Probably cuz the tires arent black

Vlad, believe it or not, the car is actually lowered, I got eibach pro kits. I'm thinking H&R Cup Kit soon. Its the only thing I can use to lower it more. I'm gonna leave it for now and concentrate on other things, perhaps a new head unit.

We want LOWER, forget about the headunit.

audio is a waste of money. For the money I spent on audio my car could be superchaged + PSS9. And the worst all stuff laying aroung not installed. So don;t waste your time, money on the audio. After you finish modding you car, start with the audio.

It's lowered already???? :eek:
Hmmm need more lowering I guess ? :D

But it's all up to you tho? If you really like low car or not
nonetheless it's a nice car and a nice mod you have there *wave*

Yeah, thats the problem with E34's. the ride is already rock solid, the car weighs 3600 lbs, so thats a factor in lowering cars.

I kinda had a feeling your car wasn't gonna look the same the next time I see it! I like the wheels and front spoiler !*th-up*

Love the deep dish*love* , did you get the whole car re-painted? looks real sharp !

I bet you can't wait for the Niagara cruise !;)

Today I drove a 325 w/ 2 huge subs and amps w/ custom urethane speaker boxes and molding. The thing weighed a tonne! No offense, the audio system sounds great and everything, but car performance wise, audio systems suck! The rear of the car was weighed down so much, the car felt slower than my previous 318 and the cornering was very Honduhish, just understeer understeer, then oversteer fish tail! It was terrible, after driving that car I don't think I would ever put large subs and amps in my car. A nice head unit and larger speakers will do just fine for me. :)

It depends what your mostly into, but if your an all show no go type of guy you bought the wrong car. Should have got something cheaper that couldn't handle for sh*t anyways.

Oh yeah, nice car Julian! *th-up* Did you paint the entire car or just wax it? Looks like you repainted the whole thing, let me know how much that costed you. I'm thinking of repainting my car also.

Thanks guys, only some of the car is repainted, like the passenger fender and the lower part around the car. I'm thinking of taking it to a detailer to get it buffed so the paint matches all around.

That actually looks pretty good, maybe I can con my parents into accidentally modding their car (at least getting rid of the 15" wheels)

wow!

that's a great [but subtle] difference!

Calypso red is one of the best colours, IMHO, next to royal blue metallic anyways. :)

Yeah, the wheels do look kind small in pics for 18s, but maybe it's the dish on them. Doesn't need to be lowered anymore though. Do you really want to plough snow in the winter? :P

Nice looking car! However, I think you need some new licence plate screws / plate frame, your plate looks a little ratty. Kinda detracts from the overall look, but maybe I'm just too picky.

Thats really true, I still have to use this car during the winter. :mad: I'm still considering the H&R cup kit.

As for the lisence plate, there's nothing much I can do about it, because the way the bumper is made, it basically fits the plate Perfectly, there's no room for me to stick a plate cover on there. I was thinking of Hammering the plate flat again.

Looking good Julian!*th-up* Finally the secret is out!:D

For some reason it doesn't look as low in those pictures...but it could go a bit lower;) !

BTW- Julian, I've got this mint white E34 for sale that could use a few mods!!!:D

looks really nice... but I'm still not sure if I like the eyebrows on your car...

wicked looks. it just looked like a brand new again........oh...you got mods in that car.......It's time to get a turbo or a supercharger just to match it up. Or maybe just A cam? Anyhoo....Get some decent music and you'll be enjoying your ride.

Yeah thats been very controversial between us E34 guys. Its probably not as clean with them on, but its definately different. I like em.

Gamite, you need something to match the looks of your car now. Get THE cam.
P.S. if you see me, ask me the audio stuffs, since I have to know what you need and what you have to look for before you go and buy a head unit and do NOT go to Future Shop for it, those tings sucks, even in their "high end" room.

Well anyways, after the rims and tires, your car should be quite heavy. That's why you should get something to counter it.

Your car looks amazing Julien!

The funny thing is that the 18"s on your ride look like 17"s. But it still looks sic!

Thx bro, The ride is a bit harder but its real smooth on the highway.


The eyelids were on the car before this body work was done. Personal Choice, no one has them, n I like how they look.
