Biography of Alfonso Vergara aka DarXide
Alfonso Vergara, a 20 year old student, began his journey in the modified world in 2004 when he acquired his 2004 BMW 330i. Working as a sales representative in a condo hotel Alfonso started tweaking his BMW with a few additions such as OEM European clear lights all around, tints and a sound system thinking that would be as far as he would go. Right around November 2004 a couple months after getting the car Alfonso stumbled upon e46fanatics.com where his enthusiasm for European cars unfolded. Not long after joining the community modifying the e46 became not only an addiction but a pursuit of a unique sedan. It started off lightly with a set of springs and eventually a set of 1 piece wheels.

The car has been through 3 different phases. First, Alfonso opted to keep his stock body kit which already was an M-Tech kit thanks to the performance package that came along with the car. Next he added his first set of wheels which were 19’’ black faced Sevas S-stars along with a few performance upgrades such as, UUC under drive pullies, an intake and a Rouge Engineering DSM exhaust. Right around October 2006 a year later after his first round of light modifications Alfonso decided to take a different approach to his vehicle by incorporating a full body kit and wheels to set off a completely new theme. The aforementioned presented a very high contrast theme through the use of brushed aluminum and silver Carbon Fiber pieces inside out. Six months later after the second phase Alfonso decided to slightly change the look of the car by accentuating the theme even more. At that point the car acquired a new custom hood, new front, an in car entertainment system, a big brake kit and a set of custom 3 piece wheels to name a few. Currently the car is not 100% finished; there are still plans on supercharging and doing some more in car entertainment as well as interior work.

Thanks:
