Heh, here are pics of my car. Before you start saying "slam it" and "get wheels" and all of that stuff I am going to tell you that I have plans for all of that as soon as I get some more cash. I just put new tires on for the winter and gettin new chromes after winter is over.

Here is the first. Warning LOTS!!

LOL!

Here is what happened with the wheels. Yesterday my dad picked my car while I was at school. He was trying to surprise me with a new set of rims. He was going to have them mounted and balanced and then when I came back out to the parking lot after school I'd have my 17" chrome wheels on there and I'd be really happy. Well when they ordered them my dad tried tellin them about the offset differences and stuff, but the guy called motegi and he said that it would fit this bmw. So he let them do it. Well they put them on my car and then said "we need spacers to make them fit" my dad said "no you dont" and then he told them to take them off. He doesnt want spacers put on my car because it weakens the center of the axle. Oh yeah and it was a pro install DORK! No one is ever going to see those wires they are behind the box. Plus I think I jacked them up pulling the box out because its sorta wedged in there really tight lol.

Oh yeah and since they screwed up with this wheel order, my dad said he'd spend more money on wheels in the spring. He said I could get the mille miglia EVO's. They are sweet, and like 329 per wheel.

Eurostyle- i wouldnt sell this car for anything. Its a project car, and I am going to have fun with it.

Thanks for the comments,

Tracer

PS- THe reason i dont have shoes is b/c i was gettin ready to wash the car. It looks better after i washed/waxed it. But i knew i was running out of light so i had my dad take pics.

Two 12" MTX 4000's. How did that white one look bmxer? My dad asked me today if I wanted to get my body kit now for an advanced xmax present. I said sure. So I am trying to get more pics of flips kit so I can know whether or not to order it! Well I know i do, but my dad wants to see more pics before he sends the money.

Tracer,

Nice looking car. Looks clean and classy. Hope you don't do anything crazy like put a big ass spoiler on!!! For $400? Can't go wrong. Are all those miles on the original motor?

This car has had 1 owner besides me. They bought it originally at the local bmw dealer here in town and have just kept it around here. The miles are mostly highway miles, and this is the original motor. It hasnt ever had any rebuild or anything, just routine maitnenance. Timing belt, oil change ect. Yeah timing belt is gettin changed again next week. My dad knows a guy so I am gettin it done for a total of $200! I guess thats a pretty good deal, he usually charges more. I need new exhaust pipe!!! Anyone have any suggestions????

I have a few more pics of it im going to post!

Got any more pics??? I'd really like to see the rear of it and a shot of it that I can see the wheels.

Thanks!

BTW I think that the mtx 4000's sound the best for the money.

Yes, I am keeping everything white. Some day when I can afford a new paint job I may get a different color, but until then I will stick with my current color.
