Moar pics of your car! I normally don't care for 1-series, but that thing is amazing. It appears you also like black front-ends :-D

Brick looks tight, man. Good find on the shades, too. Haven't seen those in a long time. Most t'brickers on here probably never have!!!

And here's some more pictures of the 145, without its shades on. Yes, I drive it like this and it's not bagged or anything, it's just slammed. and yeah, it rides like **** and drags the muffler all the time. It's honestly a PITA, but I love looking at it this low, so I haven't raised it yet.

It needs a few things, (tail light lens, front fender, rear bumper,interior stuff, etc) but it's a fun car overall.

thanks for all the positive comments guys!

Dude, I just found another set of shades with palm trees on Ebay for my lady's bug. She was all jealous that I found these yellow ones. I'll post pictures of those when I get them. hahaha

I live right by Costco near Harvey West Park.

Yeah, I just put a Y on the two fuel lines, and then connected it to the regulator. I had a fuel pressure gauge on it for a little while, and it never went under 5 psi which is where I had it set for the DGAV. Seems to work fine.

Nah, that's my old roommates.

VWs come and go around here. I've had 5 karmann ghias and 3 bugs all in the past 4 years.

What type of brakes you got going on there? I don't know if it's just me, but they seem a bit larger than stock. And I see red peeking through.

They're the stock Girling brakes, spraypainted red by the PO. I was amazed at how big they are for stock brakes.

Nevermind, it was the angle that made them look bigger. Still a very sharp car, yellow is the secks.
