Finally got around to posting some pics, they're off a camera phone so nothing special. The car is pretty much plain jane right now but it's been very solid over the four and a half months I've owned it.
Maxbimmer was extremely helpful to me leading up to the purchase, and I admittedly haven't posted nearly as much as I wanted to. Hopefully I'll have some more stuff to share especially after the winter when I plan on getting some proper tires and some small mods.
Here's the full story:
2006 325i w/ sport pkg, 6-speed manual, black int, brushed silver trim.
Bought the car privately in July for a little over $15k with a junky set of winter tires on replica rims. Vehicle had 124,000km on it and was purchased/driven as a CPO car one year prior to me scooping it up off kijiji. The seller was extremely confident with the car, we developed a good rapport and he loaned me the car for a weekend to have it checked out. Vehicle had an extended warranty in tact which resulted in a passenger side impact airbag replacement, new front window regulators, ball joints, sway bar linkages and bushings. I had Jay from StanceFactory take a look at the car pre-purchase and I also took it to Trevor Hayes after the purchase. Both guys were very helpful and gave the car their approval (pending a couple repairs), I've been taking the car to Advanced Knowledge for everything since.
Car in at AKA last night for spark plugs and winters:
The car's not spotless, it has some nicks and dings, it's definitely a daily driver. I do my best to keep it clean and take care of it, but it'll never be a spotless mint ride or anything. The interior is in really good shape save for some scuffs on the rear driver side door, oh and my cigarette lighter doesn't work
Always open to suggestions as to what I should focus on - simple stuff like tints will be done in the spring, might do the 325/330 software flash thing, maybe black out the ugly moustache chrome lip things, I need some new BMW badges too as the rear has started to wear.
