Hi guys, newbie here....just recently purchased a '97 328is (please hold your applause). Wow, i've never had this much DRIVING. I get a silly-ass grin when I blow by honda civics @ 110+mph while taking a turn. (because anyone can stand on the pedal on a straightaway)
BMW 1997 328is
Anyways...as you can see it's pretty much stock on the outside, so i'm looking for suggestions to give it a more sportier look. Also i'd like to swap out the exhaust for something not so loud, but has a deep bass. I don't want the car to sound "Riced", but i'd like to at least feel and hear something while i'm in the car. Rightnow you can barely hear the car idle. (perhaps this is a good thing?)
At the moment i'm looking at an M3 front bumper and possibly those "angel eyes" for starters.
According to the previous owner it's got a M3 differential, K&N intake, adjustable shocks, and was lowered a couple of inches.
I'm still getting use to the gear ratios because i'll be cruising on the highway and it would sound & feel like I was still in 3rd gear. It amazes me that it still gots some "umph"..even in 5th gear.
Also please take a look at some of the pics I took of my parent's car: a '92 ('93?) 325is
Are these LED or CCFL based angel eyes?
