    New to the site. Looking forward to being a part of it and hopefully meeting some of you guys at an AR BBQ or two (Thanks for the hook up, Seth)

    I just bought my first M3, actually first BMW, about 2 weeks ago in ID. I knew it would be fun but it's way more fun than I could have imagined.

    2003 325i
    Hi everyone my name is Matt and I live in Redmond, WA. I purchased my first BMW about 8 months ago. It is a 2003 325i with 56k miles on it. I would post a pic but the site won't let me.

    I will try and make it out this weekend to one of your meets. I have a few questions about my car if anyone has time.

    Sorry if I offended anyone. Vince Vaughn was (gone now) in the signature doin' his motor boatin' routine. It was funny. I was just quoting Wedding Crashers to show my appreciation for the humor.

    87 325

    Talking My First post... and I've got an '87 325

    Hi Guys,

    I've got a 1987 e30 325 automatic with 224K miles and a lot of stories. I've taken care of the car for about 6 years for a good customer who allowed me to take a pile and turn it back into a solid mechanical car that looked pretty bad. Over the years we brought the maintainence items back to spec, replaced the whole suspension, driveshaft, a couple of brake jobs, antennas, seat repairs, etc... always using OE or better parts. Nothing modded, just a darn nice driving car that looked pretty poor with a black cheapo paint job over the stock red.

    I've helped drag a Black Bear home in the trunk from the Pac Forest and a couple weeks later dragged the car back to Tacoma when he ripped the oil pan open in the same area on a forestry road and drove about 15-20 miles back to Elma with no oil. Patched the pan at the time with quick steel and fired it up... squealed like pure death... wacked the throttle once and it picked up a prime and has run fine for two years+ since.

    This February he calls me up out of the blue and asks if I want the car. Karma... I needed something new, wife had a wreck and everything else was falling apart... plus I'd been working since December at a Euro shop and could buy parts at a good price. He didn't want to sell me the car... he wanted to give it to me as the resale value wasn't worth the hassle of having people bug him. I jumped on it.

    Since I got it in February I've replaced the oil pan, checked the bearings (they look fine!), tuned it, new O2, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, Brembo rotors , new pads, new fog lamps, lots of bulbs, some lenses, antenna, tires, converted A/C to 134a with new receiver/drier, new boot from afm to throttlebody, some fresh fuel lines under the hood, and looking for some time to replace the water pump, all the belts including timing belt, crank and cam seals (had them sitting in my tool box for months now). Aligned it and the car is rock solid... just picked up my friend/customer with it today at the airport and he'd like it back. I warned him he wasn't getting it back when he got sick of the 2003 Tiberon he bought He offered to trade, I said no way.

    This week I've ordered up new Focal speakers to replace the oe ones, new emblems from overseas to replace the busted up stockers, and the drivers door trim to cover up the band of red paint where the missing piece covers the horrible paint job.

    I'm looking for a stock black vinyl drivers seat as mine has a broken seat back frame, the vinyl is torn and the back got thrown away by the previous owner (aurgh!). Almost got a set of Recaro style ones off ebay but the seller has posted the same pictures in a bunch of auctions for used/repaired seats and wouldn't give me pictures of the actual seats. I'll keep looking... wife wants leather, I think the vinyl will look better long term with less maintenance.

    Also want to fix the display on the clock (not OBC...), it's solid orange over a large chunk.

    Anyways... that about covers me and my story. Love the little car, good mileage, super handling, solid as a rock and it just keeps getting better a bit at a time. Starting to do more appearance stuff as I trust the mechanicals and the previous owner didn't give a damn about that and used it for offroad excursions hunting... a lot. It isn't anything close to a show car, no bling or race stuff... might get it painted right in a year or so once everything else is up to snuff.

    So... HI!

    Scott

    ya, i've gotten mixed reviews on those. I like them as well. They came stock on the car. They're different for sure. Thanks
