E92 325i LCI
#1
Hey Guys,

So after seeing all these epic Showroom threads - I've decided to finally start my one smile bounce

I've always had a passion for cars and started of as a Once Upon a Time Audi fan-boy. This changed very quickly once I started to experience the awesomeness of BMW.
The first few BMWs that I drove felt good, however I wasn't completely convinced as yet. Spending more and more time in these cars and driving them changed my mindset completely.
The YouTubers were completely right when they said "a BMW will grow on you and you will need to understand how it works/drives in order to appreciate it". *Insert every Car Throttle video here* Rofl Thumbs

My search for another vehicle started after my E90 323i was involved in an accident and was written off BlueCry.
My options and preference at the time was another E90 or a F30.

After some browsing online I had come across this sale/picture and I had enquired about the vehicle at that very same time.

The salesman, at the time, gave me all the necessary details and I had decided that I would go and check the car out.
After a few visits, history and sanity checks, and a visit by the mech - all my check-boxes were ticked and I decided to go ahead with the purchase smile bounce

The day I picked her up from the dealership:

Cosmetic mods done a few days later:

Tinted the windows (I didn't quite like the job and later got the front tints lighter and left the rear windows DARK Cthulhu)

Received a bootspoiler as a gift (I liked it at first however will be changing it soon to the High Flick spoiler as this one looks a bit cheapy) Hammerhead

Upgraded the standard deck to this little beast. Features are really cool and has much more functionality than the stock player.
It has a handy reverse camera linked to it as well (Not entirely sure the exact model of this device as I had pulled it out of my 323i).
Oh, and I threw a subwoofer in the boot as well Cartel

The not so cosmetic stuff:

So far the only other mod that I have done was a muffler delete. My neighbours don't quite like me on Sunday mornings Tiptoe


I will continue to update this thread as I go along with the car. Thanks for the read! Ty

Thanks, man. Car has a slight hum on non-spirited drives between +- 2000-2800rpm but its totally bearable and I haven't noticed any highway drone that bothers me or passengers. Uphill city driving can get a bit loud but its manageable depending on the throttle (the pops and crackles make up for it though Rofl).

I love mine, the straight 6 ripping at 6000rpm through my Viper cat-back never gets old.
