Talking New to here 325xi, pics and intro

So I am new to this forum, but not forums in general.

My name is Eric

I am going to PA to pick up a 2006 325xi on Wednesday for a stellar deal.

I have owned euro cars before (A4, TT roadster, GTI) and currently own a 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution... Here are a few pictures...


My current car is a daily driven 400whp/400tq stock turbo evo... Looking for something a little classier and easier to drive (quieter i guess)

18x9.5 +15 all around on coilovers..





PS the fender is supposed to be like that (carbon fiber fender spacer mod kit, no roll or pull on fronts)





Will get some pics of the 325xi once I pick it up. It is black/black
(dont have any pictures yet of new whip)

the new ride needs a front bumper, it hit the guys mailbox. So I am looking around for a M3 rep or a better than stock looking one. Also plan to do some wheels/suspension. Then I am done.

thanks for looking, hopefully I get to start spending some time on here.


Picture of my new car... new to me at least. needs more work than i though ahahah but, nothing some body panels and paint wont fix

Welcome to the forum and congratulation on your new car. Your Evo looks very good - I hope you will tolerate the lower power of your 325xi.

thank you,

I used to make 715whp in my evo before i sold all to get a DD out of it..

so I went from a 9 sec evo to an 11 sec evo now to a 15 sec 325

not going to be selling the evo though, and I cannot afford a 335I at the time so no big speed or turbo power for me

just a little... But I am actually really excited. I cant wait to start throwing a few things here and there... I want to get some 19''s (something not $1500.00 per wheel because I plan to let my DESTRUCTIVE finaceeeee drive it.

Also maybe some springs (dont want to destroy my ride quality, the whole reason I bought it)

will update as things come a long.


Thanks for the warm welcomes! much appreciated.

Willkommen. BTW a 330i Three Stage Intake Manifold (Easy install), magnaflow muffler, and a tune will give you ~265 hp in the 325xi. Much better DD after that.
