After four Japanese cars, finally coming to the German side...

I had an Acura TL Type-S for about 2.5 years... LOVED that car, but had an itch for RWD.

[/url]

Drove a 328i about a week and a half ago and was pleasantly surprised how quick and nimble a regular ol` 328 was nowadays...

[/url]

Drove her home with Carmax warranty to 100,000 miles two days later!

Friday night debadge:

Saturday morning interior cleaning:

Sunday morning 403 M wheels:

[Monday night clay & wax undocumented]

Tuesday night M Sport gloss black grilles:

Next up it either matte carbon fiber interior trim wrap or M Sport front bumper.

Thanks for sharing my excitement with me!

Go with full M Sport exterior or not at all, front bumper only will just look odd. Congrats and good choice on 403Ms

I went from a Camry V6 to a 340i, nice power bump. Even BMW underrated horsepower figures are better than my old car so that means the actual power increase is even greater.

First - welcome (and a double welcome for OC resident). 403 Style wheels are a great choice. If you are happy with the suspension, no worries. I think Bilstein or KW coilovers will transform the handling of your vehicle. Have fun!

If you're going to go 403M wheels and the M sport bumpers, maybe you should have just gotten the package to begin with! Less work and I would assume it's cheaper if you just bought it that way vs piecing it together afterwards.

Either way, welcome! Glad to have ya! Good thing you got the Xenon head lights!!

P.S- I always wanted a TL-S! Super jealous.
