Well, today was spent running around like a madman.
Got the car appraised (to avoid paying taxes on the wholesale $7.5K value ), got it safetied, e-tested, and transferred into my name (took 4 trips to the Ministry to get all the paperwork right).

So today the shop got the HID kit fully installed and the other ZKW in. Snow tires put on. Brake pads put on the rear (they were worn), oil change, flushed tranny and filled with some Royal Purple, and they swapped in the navigation/Hardon Kardon Traffic Pro

Tomorrow will be reapplying the door panels (needs clips), fixing the door latch, replacing thermostat, swapping in some working window switches, installing //M mouldings with LTW badges, and a good cleaning.

hopefully its painted by next week

good luck trying to get 5er offset wheels on the car.

3M those headlights before they get pitted. one season of salt will pit them up badly.

Where did you get the Traffic Pro from? I hear it's very hard to find, even in the states.

What a day... the old 325i is officially gone.

today was spent fixing the door switch (thanks to TEMP for the part), reinstalling the passenger side door panel, new thermostat (now the car heats up like an oven on steroids), coolant flush + fill, replaced the thrust arm bushing, lost the gold 325is symbol, test fitted a BBS RS (diagnosis:not gonna fit without a wide body kit ), engine bay clean up, and a nice ol'wash n wax.

Best part of the day?

The fact that round 1 (fix what needs fixin' and do some maintenance) is over.
Big thanks to my boys over a RMP Motors in Bolton. They spent 3 days working on 2 of my cars. Totally professional and dedicated.... and the bill for all this work? swapping suspension, swapping body panels, bla bla bla... didn't break my wallet... that was the best surprise

Big ups to RMP
Anyways, enough ass kissin' and on to the pics.

Gold is gone.
Suspension i had from the old 325i (koni kit, JTD RSM, adj. control arms, etc). All it needed was a thrust arm bushing

Did you pick this beast up from Alwysfresh (Dave)? If so, nice job! It was in pretty rough shape when I last saw it.
