Adam's E46 Orient Blue Cabrio
 
Hey everyone, my name is Adam and I finally bought (well 6 months ago) the car that I've wanted since I bought my first car in 2000... I really want an Imola on Imola but that combo is super super rare and only came in M3, or so I have heard.

2001 325Ci Cabriolet
Orient Blue
5-speed
Bought it in April with 181K

Installed the following since:
GruppeM CF intake
Generic SSK
Red/Clear tails
Smoked corners
clear side markers
Smoked bumper reflectors
Bimmian micro CF antenna (broke)
Weisslite LED license plate lights (don't fit)
DICE module
Parrot and CK3000 Bluetooth Handsfree
Windscreen
Ski-pass thru 10" subwoofer install

Tein S-Tech springs (spec'd at -1.57" F and -0.75 R)
Bilstein OE replacement struts
ASA AR1 18"x9" ET45 (yes it fits up front contrary to what I have searched on this forum :argue:)
225/40 up front
235/40 on rear
I'd love to roll the fenders and throw on some spacers to flush out the stance but these aren't the rims that I want so I'm gonna wait on that.

Future plans:

Angel Eyes (soon hopefully)
DRL delete
M3 steering wheel - deal in progress :)
M3 power folding mirrors (anyone have for sale??)
New rims
Sport seats or full Imola red interior swap
Exhaust - haven't found one I like yet as I'd like to source a Quad-tip exhaust with a quiet rumble

Thank you to everyone on this board so far, there is a tremendous amount of info on here that has helped me love my car even more in the 6 months of ownership...

C&C welcome, including haters :evil:

So I bought an M3 wheel yesterday and I absolutely LOVE it...

I can even go as far to say as it changes the whole feel of the drive; I used to love driving this machine but now it's even better! The wheel is much lighter to turn, softer leather and it has the 10 and 2 grips!

By far one of the best mods anyone can do...

Nice!!

M3 wheel was the best mod I did when I had my other E46. Car looks great.
