Same here, car has to be clean most of the time.
My neighbors probably think I'm crazy because I handwash it once a week

Well, normaly they add M3 Badges on a 318i
i cut the number off. /// means Motorsport to me and i want to hide the Car Dealers Name. I will never put a M3 Badge on a non M Car
BTW. I'm here because i don't like the "normal" German bimmer guy. Once posted a Pic of my car on a German Forum and Most Comments were like "Where is the Bitch washing that car?"
And they have no taste, nearly every car here looks Great


F1Senna, i bought the Car with 5000 miles and i have NO idea why someone configured the car with a tow hitch. It's never been used. Not a single scratch on it. Previously owned by BMW, maybe they just put everything in

I'm very happy with blue. You can spot it very easily in a parking lot beside all the silver and black cars

looks very nice. Funny how you see so many great photos of exterior modded 3s so you think you need pretty mods too...then you see a great looking stock car and realize you don't I do need my winter rims off though!

It's this Part
http://www.bmwetk.com/parts-catalog/...564/71/71_0412

There is a Button in the Trunk, when you push it, the Towing Hitch unlocks.
theoretical, i never pushed it

Not offered in the US i believe. In Europe BMW fits the Westfalia ones, either as option, or retrofit

http://www.westfalia-automotive.de/index.php?id=32&L=1

I had the "automatic" (= manually removable..) one retrofitted, as it keeps the weight down when not used. The removable hitch itself is some 10-11 lbs. There is a product finder on the page.

No its not. It's Germany, NRW, Bielefeld

From this angle... with new rims, i think i also need i a drop :>


Are those grids (the silver ones) available in black? I think that will fit with better with the black Kidneys.

Finally installed the Kidneys... I'm not a very patient person and there was a moment where i nearly ripped all apart.

The silver grid doesn't fit well

It's the glossy from the Performance Line. I like it shiny.
I'm not sure right now if i just buy the lower grill in black from the 325i or paint mine in black.
i think i will paint them to get the glossy look. The original from BMW (325i) are normal plastic.

Yesterday i was at my BMW Dealer to pick up my ordered mesh but they didn't fit.

The Left and Right Parts were half closed and they said, there are only in silver complete open. So i guess i have to try it with paint
