Jet Black 06 325i - Quick Session

Hello all,

Below is my JB E90. Car was semi-clean, PITA Jet Black cars, haha. This was taken before the drive down to my buddy's house to take pictures of his Mini Cooper.

Loving the car so far. I have decided on wheels, Gunmetal VMR 710...just like majority of the people here Still deciding on coils, but we'll see how it goes. The current stock wheels are dipped Matte Black. The previous owner loved the curbs so I needed a temporary fix. He did however set me up with new tires, some nice Z rated ones

In any case, below is the car. Thank you!

I always loved E90's, clean looking car but rims with an aggressive offset and lowered will definitely set it off.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys. Yes 4x4 ing right now. I would have done the drop and wheels earlier but maintenance came up pretty hardcore right after the purchase. I had to replace the water pump:thermostat and the oil pan gasket. Basically drained about $2000 dollars from the car mod budget.

Basically doing basic but clean looking mods for now.

2 Minis. We took a road trip down Highway 1. Wasn't too familiar with the places so we only got a few shots. We were able to test the Minis recent upgrades; Coils, wheels, pulleys, and intakes. Great cars to take the twists and turns!

Thanks! Means a lot, the paint condition was pretty bad when I got it. I had to buy detailing gear and put in an honest attempt on detailing the car. It could be better but I am pretty satisfied with my results. Does not beat the veterans out here on the board, haha.

This was also my first black car. It's a love and hate relationship with the paint

Car looks great. You definitely need some wheels though. You should buy my trunk too.

Why did you have low expectations? Was it because its a 325 come on man we all look the same on the outside I've seen even a few 328s that look nicer then M3s

Thanks. They are actually not tinted but does provide a little accent when looking at it from the front, hehe.

Thanks Mario K. You know that I'm envious of your car. Love your build.
