    Really nice one! But i also think it looks lower than stock? Maybe just old tired springs :D

      Thanks! Yeah, they are probably a bit tired. I am however still able to read the color code of off them, if any one could share theirs?

          Ok, no problem. I'll ask in the ix section.
          When I contacted the person that does the coc, he said if the car isn't lowered or widend, getting the coc isn't a problem.

          So since I got my coc, he confirmed that the car is still sitting on it's stock springs.

            Little update,
            Still getting the car registered, there was a little error in the paperwork of the car.
            But it's fixed now, should receive my plate next week :D

            I also replaced the little light in the key.
            Got a new 626A battery and 2 little lamps.

            However the new lamps are a little shorter than the original. By adjusting the cupper piece inside the key, I got it to light up.

              Little update,

              Last weekend our uncle came to our house so I could chance fluids and filters on this 325iX. I also flushed my coolant system several times till the water that was coming out was clear. The first time flushing I used a special cleaning solution the guy at our auto parts store suggested should help with removing some of the grime.



              Later this week I noticed when driving that the coolant level had dropped. At that time I thought that it was probably an air bubble that was still in the coolant system that got away.

              After filling it up again, the next day I had the same thing happening. When coming home from school, I checked under the car for a possible leak. I noticed a few drips coming from the plastic underguard.
              When further inspecting the car I noticed a little stream of coolant coming from the water pump.


              I guess I'll have to replace the pump and timing belt etc now.
              As it was Friday they could still order it so I would have the parts the next day.
              New parts :)


              So this Saturday I got started with draining the coolant, removing the radiator (which got replaced not a long time ago by the previous owner as you can tell by the looks of it), also removed all the belts and water pump.


              Before I replaced the water pump, I decided to lay the old and new one next to each other to see if I got the right one.. Guess what. Nope.


              Went back to the parts store with the old and new pump. He somehow got it mixed up. Correct water pump will arrive on Monday..

              To be continued.. ;)

                Update :)

                Got everything replaced, and fitted when coming home from school, finished working on the car at almost 9pm.
                First start up was pretty stressful, never fitted a new belt but overall went very smooth.
                Pretty easy to work on. After bleeding the coolant system we drove the car for a while.


                When at the gas station, a stranger came to talk to me. He was pretty impressed by the car, especially when he noticed it was en iX.
                Had a nice talk about everything E30/E28 related


                Was also able to calculate the gas milage of the car. Got 11,7l/100km (20,1 mpg).
                Not too bad.

                      Looks great! Love the colour. If you find a source for rear calipers or vented discs let me know!

                        Thanks, I too love the colour alot, it was a big part of my decision in buying the car. Still need to have a look for rear discs, rear calipers are probably still ok.
                        I'm from Belgium btw.
