Vadim Kapriyelov: 2005 BMW 325xi

Modifying. Customizing. Do-It-Yourself. Vadim Kapriyelov is very passionate in the automotive aftermarket hobby. "It's taken over 3 years of almost everyday work," expresses Kapriyelov. "Blood, sweat, and tears, and I still have a few more plans for the 2005 BMW 325xi." Kapriyelov works in the E.R. to save lives for a living, and works on his 325xi to calm down and relax. "I love working on my car more than I love showing it. I was awarded with First Place at every show I competed, mostly national shows like Autorama, dB Drags and so on."

FAVORITE MODIFICATION
"PlayStation. I love it when kids come and play the PlayStation on the 7 screens at shows. I also love the hard hitting one-of-a-kind NVX sound system. But since I did it all I can't really say that I like one mod more than the other. All of them were fun to custom build, and play with in their own ways. The mods are like my children; you can't like one more than the other. (LOL)"

FUTURE MODIFICATIONS
"Maybe customizing the front and rear bumpers to match the one-of-a-kind hood and rocker panels."
