Official Hi from New Member - New Car - Inc Pics

Hi, thought i would officially introduce myself as a new owner from Surrey.

Having just sold my modified TT, I purchased a 2008 BMW coupe. Found a lovely example, and after a 6 hour return trim, I picked it up. Hoping to be an active member on here.

Spec:
2008 Msport 325i (3ltr)
Lighting Pack (if that's what it's called) lights up like a Christmas Tree when unlocked
19" 313 Alloy Wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Tyres
Full electric memory Boston Cream leather seats
Silver carbon trim (may change for gloss black)
Voice command
Parking sensors
Smokers Pack
Automatic lights and window wipers
Hi gloss shadow line
Anthracite headlining
Ect

Going to make a few changes (any suggestions let me know)
Black carbon badges (replace all the blue)
M3 rear Lip spoiler
Light window tint all round
13mm spacers
Led bulbs for interior and angel lights (number plate and door handle already led)





Old TT

Welcome, car's looking good
I would maybe go for some black performance front grills to go with your shadow line window trim and get rid of that front number plate holder to clean the front end up a bit.

Will do, hopefully it doesn't have any paint parks on the bumper. Will order some pressed plates also.

I love those rims

Assuming your car came with the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A ruflats (which are awful, my car has them) i'd suggest you replace them with non runflats. Makes a huge difference.

I also have a silver interior trim, which i want to wrap in gloss black. Nice move.

Keep us updated!

Hmmmm.. not sure on paint code but there's a web link I gave MOB17 the other day, maybe he could share that on here? Punch in the last 7 digeeeeez of your VIN and it pulls up a list of exactly what the car came stocked with from the factory including the paint code I think.

Fitted my Msport Pedals Today. (Can't live without alluminium pedals) not sure if I am going to put the foot rest in yet!



Not secured or straight yet, just looking to see if I will add.

Debadged the rear and took front number plate holder off. Cleans up the front and back nicely.

Also booked in at Vampire Tints for full light window Tint
M3 spoiler Ordered
Alluminium Pressed Plates Ordered

each to there own, wouldn't be my choice.
