Thumbs down Intro Thread OK?

Not sure if it's okay to do an intro thread here, but here's my current car. Hoping to upgrade to an alpine white 335i sometime in the very near future ( as soon as I find something with the right price )













So far engine-wise it's supercharged with an intake, header, exhaust, smaller s/c pulley, methanol injection, and upgraded injectors. The cosmetic stuff I won't bore y'all with lol. I'll probably be selling the car soon and parting out the supercharger to afford the 335i.

normally intro threads are after you've bought a e9x...

nice wheels, but I don't know who in the world would put that kind of money into a corolla though..

lol, someone who wanted to make sure most of the mistakes were done on something less expensive than a BMW.


Thanks all, hoping to learn a lot about the E9x around here.

Hey its not a bad Corolla.. But please post your old car then the new one. Do you have any questions about the 335??

At first glance I thought it was an RSX.

No comment.

You are doing it all wrong. Why is your car sitting like a 4x4 when you are trying to achieve the "hella flush" look?

Thanks for the warning, I'll be sure to pass it on


I don't think I deserved a BMW 4 years ago (time I started working on this car) - especially as a high school student. I'm looking to the 335i as a college grad present this coming year. Of course, I don't plan on doing much to it at all... if anything just some gold VS-XX on it; I seem to have a thing for white cars with gold wheels

I thought since it was the General Automotive (non-BMW) section for photographs, I wouldn't have to accompany it with pictures or questions of a 335.. But I do have some questions I'm slowly answering through the sticky'd threads. Lots of good info around here.

Was just going for a more flush stance, but not hella flush. I do agree it needs to be lower though, but it wouldn't be too practical where I currently live.

Thanks to everyone else.

Yes it is, but I just do not understand why people create profiles on random car forums... You know you can just read through without a profile. Right?

I flip through Lambo and Ferrari forums a lot but I would never post..
