Felt bad about putting 120 miles a day on my 335i so...

I bought this-

It's a 2000 bmw 323ci. I've had it for 5 days and I love it. So far mods include m3 front bumper, smoked corner lights, 6k hids, lowered on 19" mrr rims + maybe other stuff I forgot...


I felt bad about racking up miles on my 335i because I bought it half a year ago at 40k miles and right now I'm at 55k.

Now the two cars aren't comparable at all as far as performance goes, but the convertible is a lot of fun in the summer and I love it.

Fun fact:

I have an e46 for my DD for my 160mile roundtrip to work this summer. Saving the 335i for nights and weekends. Nice looking e46 though, I'm kinda jealous yours is a vert. Call me kweer (I'll just head to chic-fil-a) but I think driving a convertible is a lot of fun.

Nice choice!

Yeah, I had a few e46's before my e90 so I have a bunch of left over parts. Love the handling on them.

And yeah... My favorite thing about the car is the fact that it's a convertible.

All that being said, my 323i is less than 100 miles from rolling 200k. I think they're great cars. They've got their weak points (subframe, water pump) but I still love mine. BMW four lyyfe!

I got up to 160-170k ish (don't remember for sure) on my first one before my mom totaled it.
