So.. UK 330 on hydraulics and AC Schnitzers...
 
Always wanted a challenge and with an idea in mind i set off on a mission... after owning a few e46's i set out to make this one stand out from the crowd. With genuine AC Schnitzer type 2's, rayvern custom hydraulic suspension and a spec list as long as my arm i think iv just about done it.
I dont know about the US and abroad but as far as im aware noone else in the UK is running hydrualics in any BMW and also according to Rayvern it couldnt be done.. but i didnt settle for this :thumbsup:

Recently been featured in PerformanceBMW Mag in the UK.

So enough talk... time for a few pictures.

anyways.. OP not a fan of bags but car looks great. IMO those wheels look so much better on a coupe then sedan

MILLER_102 12-26-2012 07:49 PM

never seen that before... but tidy motor all the same. is it on hydraulics? or airbag suspension? Id the idea in my head and went with it.. happy with my own :)

its not on bags its hydraulic rams replacing struts.. looks identical to a coilover strut just without the springs. :) thanks :thumbsup:

:drool: I love these wheels so much.

ICONIKE46 12-26-2012 09:09 PM

:drool: One of my favorite wheels. Looks perfect on black coupes :drool: Although Dan's car will always have a place in my heart since I'm a sedan kinda guy.

Car looks great OP! Plus the Quaife just made it THAT much better :drool: :thumbsup:
