hehe i'll play

I started witha 1988 325i when I was 18 years old. Ripped out the entire back end and redid the wheel bearings.

Then that winter, i drove into a curb that i never saw as i was pulling into the plaza to get some chicken wings! control arm turned into a chicken wing, and the bottle cap rim became a bottle cap opened.

then i bought my 1990 325i with plastic bumpers and a magnaflow muffler (that i still use!!). I bought it within a month of killing the 1988. I have had this car since and done everything i could!

I lowered the car and got big juicy rims. put a small steering wheel on, and a sound system. BROOO as well for jokes on the rear window.

the engine got an M50 swap, then i cracked the oil pan, fixed it and continued to drive and eventually the cylinder head cracked in 8 spots! Sooo a new excuse to do work

Out with the M50, and in goes an OBD1 converted M52. You would think its an M50 the way I dressed it! So much faster, quicker, and sounds so rawww, just the way i like it. I also put in bilstein sport shocks to properly handle the engine weight. overall, its been love!

started 1988 325i @ 18 yrs old, turning 25 this may still with my 1990 lol...
