Black Saphire E46 Touring - the mod history
 
I picked up the car on Sunday evening and I started yesterday doing some minor modifications. This will be so much easier to give updates versus the ZHP...too many mods on that one.

First pictures - 100% stock

Todays modifications:

Tinted windows, I went with 35% (i know, i chickened out on going 20%) and the CH's - yes, I need to lower it, I have H&R stuff to install thanks to Bubba (so hopefully in the next week or so it will come down)

More!

i know - i chickened out on the 20% tint - the cops in the DC area are too much a PITA.

I received the trailer hitch today and will be installing it along with the Mtech front and rear bumpers (on order). I will have the bumpers, all the trim and the grills painted to match the car.

I also have H&R suspension to install (just not enough time this week to get it all done).

I have to make 19 ashtrays for other fanatics and some folks from M3f for their V1's and I had trim and engine components to take off the ZHP to be made in CF...so I had to give the sedan some love too....

I love it.

GL bro...looks great, coming along very well :clap:

UGH! Looks great. LOVE The wheels. Those are just what I'm looking for.

The MTECH II looks GREAT on the tourings... I just got mine back at 5:30 tonight. Amazing improvement.

The tag is some Texas thing - I dont know why. I will hopefully have the regular tags for MD on it tomorrow (this weekend). It passed inspection on Wednesday with flying colors.

All I have right now are the hootie ones I took from my camera phone & my phone is more phone than camera... So the quality sucks.
