Before my flight left I stopped at the dealer with a flashlight at 4am to spot my car through the fence. Then I had to leave it there for a week...tough times. ha! I ended up signing for it and driving away on August 16th.
Im honestly surprised a passing cop or security guard didnt think I was trying to steal a car.



Thats crazy though. I didnt know how many people basically went through the same stuff I did.
Now that's a crazy/awesome story! I'm glad you finally got the car you wanted... even though it's pretty much blown up in every possible way since then. Your username was strangely prophetic, wasn't it?

I made a new username on this site in 2009 when my top went south. Its actually reactionary and made purely out of frustration

Car looks good. I really like the trunk spoiler...hrmm.

You've got some mismatched roundel issues with the wheels and the ones on the car.

I can't get myself to like aftermarker Roundels with variant colors. To me it looks cheap. Just a pet peeve of mine.

Thanks!

I know what you're saying about the roundels, though. I fully agree. My old wheels were Breytons which were black with a red stripe, so the Red+Black carbon fiber look worked very well (especially with the interior being red too). Now that I have silver in the wheels, the red just didn't look right so I had to go with plain black and white to match the black and silver better. But nobody that I know of makes a CF trunk roundel for the 1 series. Maybe they do now, but for a long time none were available and I'm not sure where to get one. The hood I can do easily, but the trunk's a pain. So for now it stays badly mismatched while I try to figure out how to go about fixing the trunk. I don't want to just get stickers again because in my experience they fade and peel in 6 months except for the current ones which were made by a forum member and are super durable. Bimmian stickers just suck.

I understand you wanting to stick to the original colors too. It's really the "true" BMW colors. But as I mod the car more and more, I just think about it more as contributing to the accents and color scheme. When I put the red and black on, it was mostly just to have a single, cohesive theme with the black and red. Blue and white just clashes with my colors too much, what can I say? Lol.

But thank you for the input. I really do appreciate it. And though our thoughts on changing the roundels in general may differ, you are correct, my roundels are ugly mismatched.
