Hi all, I'm quite new here, although I'm not new to the BMW community. Before, I drove an E46 325xi in Canada.

The car had a whole bunch of goodies on it, koni yellow + eibach pro kit, ZHP replica rims, euro-style clear turn signals all around, body coloured side moldings and a few more int/ext styling things. I loved it, but had to give it up cos of the car's shaking during stoplights when in "D", and the front CV joint giving me problems all the time (and a huge repair bill to boot, since there is a lack of global support, read: no mod parts, for 4wd xi models).







I now reside in Hong Kong and decided to give up on the Audi TT I had acquired when I first came back.



Although the build quality and the car itself was superb, I couldn't stand the interior panel noises anymore. It also becomes a pain when driving parents and relatives around (as small in stature as asian women tend to be, the rear seats aren't exactly comfortable).

So here's how it currently sits, entirely bone stock - but I'm pretty sure it won't last this way for too long.









My only wish? If only it was a manual...

Thanks man! I loved them too, but I think I shoulda gotten 18"s... they were a tad too small.

Hong Kong driving is, to put simply... organized chaos. There's so many cars with so little space that cars slip into any cracks that they can. You don't really drive for your commute... you sit in the jam.
The only perk occurs during the night... there are some nice mountain roads around here, and if you go late enough, it's all yours.

Thanks to everyone else for the kind compliments! I will keep you guys posted as I start modding the car.

I have rims and tires (Yokohama Advan RS + Bridgestone RE11) on order, and should have them within the next week or two!

Latest update, LED angel eyes that are relatively nice and bright!!





Added CF Badges all around (front/rear/steering and engine bay cover roundels). I was gonna find stickers for the rim caps, but for the rims that are coming I don't think I'll need caps anymore, so I might just skip out on that part.
