Well, this is going to be my new daily driver. Still considering an M3/EVO but will probably end up buying one toward mid summer/fall now, because this took a little dent out the budget lol.

2002 BMW 525i

-Sterling Gray/ Black Leather
-Cold Weather
-Premium
-Sport
-Steptronic (couldent find a 5 speed for what I wanted to spend :( )

Right now it's got 35% tint all around, 18" wheels with new conti's, it's debadged, and has clear side markers.

Parts on the way

-new ballast for HID's (one is out)
-Weathertech floor mats
-Matte black grills (current ones were self painted by the previous owner, not up to my standards lol)

I'm planning on getting an M3 for sure, depending on how things work out, I'd like to keep this as a DD. I found it with all the options I wanted and the small motor because I wanted economy, I wasent interested in speed from this thing if I was going to have something else anyway.

Nicey nice, I have a ballast that will work for that I am sure of.....
PMing in a second.

I've always had a hard on for BMW's. I was looking for an E30 but i was going to pay close to 4k for one as clean as I wanted it... so i just thought getting something new and reliable and such would be a better option. It took a good dent out of my fund for a new fun car, but I LOVE the look of this car, and will not mind rocking it at Lukes at all this summer :D

Well I'm heavily leaning towards an E46 M3 over the EVO, so you'll most likely have some more M power joining you by late summer/early fall :D

Needs smaller wheels, but yah I love those cars. It's just, with me having to commute all over for work I definatley needed something with better gas mileage than the suburban, and the extra room of 4 doors and trunk really will be nice. plus, working for a dealership that sells high end cars I need to be in something presentable lol.

My M3 will be an 05-06 Comp Package, I cant get enough of those wheels... or those cars in general.

I believe they were 18x8.5 up front and 18x9.5 out back, BBS made rims. as for the rest of the car, it had the CSL brakes, a track mode on the DSC in place of cruise control, and a tighter ratio steering box than the normal M3's. That's all I can remember off the top of my head...

The e9x comp package is garbage.
-Electronic Damping Control with new Sport mode mapping
-19” wheels (style 359M) with performance tires
-Lowered M suspension
-Modified DSC mapping
