Daniel's '99 E46 320i journal [Denmark]
 
Hi guys!

I'll tryk and make it short, since most of you probably only look in these threads for photos anyway.

Bought an E46 '99 320i last year in august, with only 103.000km (~64.000 miles) on the clock, full service history and all papers with it. It's fully equipped with Car came bone stock, with the original 16" alloys. Both exterior and interior was as new still. Really mint condition!

Although it's only a 320i, it's expensive as fvck here in Denmark to run a BMW. initial cost of the car (tax is +180% of cars value), high insurance, crazy gas prices. I could go on. But I'm loving every minute behind the wheel of the car anyway, it's definitely worth it.


Anyway, here are two photos from when I bought it:

Then came the mods:
  • Red calipers
  • M-tech 2 bumper
  • Entire front facelifted
  • New headlights - never seen anyone with these, and I get so much positive feedback on them when people see them 'live'
  • 4300k xenon
  • Carbon kidney grilles
  • 18" LRN Cyclone CSL lightweight alloys (18x8 ET35 front, 18x9 ET40 rear)
  • Silvervision bulbs in all indicators
  • Facelifted taillights
  • LED license plate light
  • M3 boot lip
  • ZHP gearknob, illuminated in red
  • Chrome rings in speedo dials + small ///M logo in the middle
  • ///M style leather boot for shifter and handbrake
  • Audio: Pioneer DEH-9300SD, Vibe CBR12 EVO Active V2 Limited Edition in trunk, Rockford Fosgate CPC05-03 hidden in the battery compartment
  • Schmiedmann floor mats, and other minor detailing around the car...


And here's how she sits today:

Ya it looks sort of boxie instead of circular? At least from my perspective!

Nice transformation. Have any closeup shots of the headlights?

ImSoFreaknWhite 07-03-2012 10:10 AM

But aside from that, the car looks great. You have good taste please keep the mods coming

oh lol, the angel eyes yeah.

Yeah, they're not circular, they're more like U-shaped. A bit like the i8 concept car.

EDIT: Thanks :)

Here's a couple of close-ups of the headlights. Not exactly the traditional ones for E46, but I really like them :)

those are some weird looking headlights lol

JZambrano7 07-03-2012 03:40 PM

It's different but it doesn't totally ruin the look of the car. Not bad, I'm just too used to circular angel eyes.

330xIce 07-03-2012 05:06 PM

I really like the shift boot!

///Mostarac 07-03-2012 07:17 PM

I like them! Makes the car look newer!

I'm not really liking them, but I think that this is what he's going for.

The angel eyes seem like that of the new F30s:

Not bad I kinda like the angel eyes, but I am a bigger fan of the original look. They do look more modern though. :thumbsup:
