    Hey folks

    Just a quick post to introduce myself before I go setting up a journal. I've just upgraded my trusty 316i compact that served me flawlessly for the last 4 years or so, to a 2003 320ci Individual in Estoril with 66k miles on the clock. I think she's a beauty as is, but like all of you guys will understand, I've an ever-expanding list of mods that I've planned, kicking off with sorting out the crappy chrome window trims. I've priced new parts from BMW and it runs just short of euro 1K so will be either vinyl-wrapping or powder-coating in matte black.

    Here's one photo for now and I'll be adding more to journal once I set one up and start the jobs



    You all sound like a great bunch of knowledgeable people so I'm looking forward to spending more time here

    Cheers for now!

    Thx a lot Joe

    Yeah the colour is amazing, really loving how it changes based on ambient light. In fact I've spent ages just standing out in the yard ogling it, much like I'm doing with your avatar right now haha

    Thanks man The chrome really is a love/hate thing isn't it? For me, it dates the car and does nothing for it apart from maybe make it look like a Passat .... G/f thinks it's great though!

    So for now, first choice will be find a good shop to do a proper vinyl-wrap on it or powder-coat, or possibly these guys here.
