Hennep E46's 318i Progression thread
 
I've been realy busy the past couple of months. Raising our second child, started a new education and a lot of other things involving work. Now that things have settled down a bit it's time to start work on the bimmer again.
This is how it stands as of today

Past winter we upgraded to Bilstein shocks, Carbon fibre brakelines and new anti rollbar rubbers.
The old shocks looked like this

New and old topbearings

and some miscaleanous stuff for the garage i'm going to build.

Also still on the to-do list is the M-techII rear with the Rieger rearspoiler and a FOX exhaust systeem with 4x80 exhausttips. What i also want to accomplish is changing to a FL hood with M3 powerbulge from Mor-Vision.

nice! crazy how rusted the rear shocks got.

hennep E46 02-02-2012 12:50 PM

That one was the worst, and not even the primairy reason to change them. The other side was leaking and didn't provide anymore compression, so with each traffic bump i buttomed out.

Angel eyes are weak. Shoulda went with the Orion V2s... but i do like it!

Looking sweet bro! And yeah was about time for those shocks..BTW you should def get tints, It will make your car contrast a bit better. I hate tints, but it made a huge difference in term of looks.

The sides are tinted with Llumar tint 55% rear doors and 30% on the fronts. I can't go any darker because of the regulations here. I do still need to tint the rear window. I would like to do the front as well but that's forbidden here, damn law

Yep thats a OEM M-lip spoiler

djnekkon 02-04-2012 12:25 AM

I just got my add on for my Mtech2 too bro! but the quad require a lot more than what I expected. Cant wait to see your rear done. lokking really good.

hennep E46 02-04-2012 05:03 AM

I know FOX delivers a custom setup for the M-techII Rieger rear add-on for every engine. Maybe you could contact your local Rieger dealer for options or possebility's

The rieger add-on for the rear I have it, It needs to be molded tho. I just cant justify the $$$ on the exhaust quad right now. Good stuff bro! Cant wait to see that rear completely done...:clap:

///Mostarac 02-05-2012 12:29 AM

hennep, where did you buy your rieger diffuser?

kwlaznkid 02-05-2012 04:52 AM

MPower72 02-05-2012 05:08 AM

Studdly_Studright 02-05-2012 05:48 AM

I got it from a local Rieger dealer

///Mostarac 02-05-2012 02:44 PM

was it rediculously expensive? (if you dont mind me asking)

hennep E46 02-06-2012 06:56 AM

I paid 125 for it, it was ordered for a customer and painted. Once it was on the car he didn't like it and the shop put it up for sale again. So i got lucky

hennep E46 03-02-2012 03:22 PM

After cleaning my car past weekend i just couldn't resist to start modding again. So i placed the Carbon Fibre doorpillars. Fitment was perfect and even the CF weave continued perfect between the pillars on the front and rear door.

A few days ago i got some bad news, my employer is moving our production line to a lower cost country to increase the profit they can make on our produkts. So by the end of the year i'm out of a job. Just when i had everything ready and made the contacts on assembly of the Rieger/FOX rear exhaust i decided to pospone this mod. I just can't justify paying that much $ when i face to lose my job. :evil: It just seemes that i'm never gonna finish this project at this rate
