building thread: quite low, swedish e46 coupe
 
Hello guys
I'm a 19 years old guy from sweden. I'm driving a 323ci which i've had for a little more than a year now. I've had been posting a build thread on the car on a swedish forum but thought that it could be fun to get a thread here at fanatics aswell! :)
In this first update I will post everything i've done so far so that you guys will be up to date.


Starting off with some pics of the car that my friend took the day after i've brought it home

switched to black turn signals up front

thought i needed some new wheels so...

Rondell 0067 2-piece split. 17x9" square
http://www.oijoij-hd.com/images/23zS.jpg

first testmounting on the car, I really like how the color of the car and the color of the rims matches!

then it was time for some tyres.

First I was going for 215/45 tyres but the guys at oijoij-society.com convinced me that the tyres where to wide so eventually I ended up running 205/40


in the beginning of april i got my hands on some coils for my car. Sadly i don't have any pics of the mounting process but here's the result with the coils as low as possible...

a second testfitment of the rondell wheels. As they where hitting the spings in the front i was forced to put on at least 10mm spacers. In this pics i had 15mm spacers on

got some red tone on the tail lights

got the new tires on the rims. 205/40

...and finally i got the rondell wheels on the car! :)

http://www.oijoij-hd.com/images/4Y5x3.jpg
http://www.oijoij-hd.com/images/OZvbE.jpg

at this point i was overall happy with the looks of the car except that the wheelgap was a little bigger in the front than in the back. Still coils in the bottom.
Eventually i removed the helpersprings on the front coils and according to me the car came out really good

http://www.oijoij-hd.com/images/geOt0.jpg
http://www.oijoij-hd.com/images/hT0gL.jpg

now i only needed some spacers in the back so i bought two 20mm spacers from a friends friend. the bolts i got with them where to long though. But i chopped them of a couple of mm and then i all came togheter.

here's some pics which where taken in the end of the summer, these shitty ones i've taken with my mobile...

http://i1082.photobucket.com/albums/...w/IMG_5871.jpg

that's where i'm at at this point. I will update the thread if i do something to the car
next on the schedule is getting better fitment and after that we'll see what happens :)

finally i just want to say, it's all about details...

She looks sick!!

AfghanScarface 01-06-2013 07:38 PM

Cleannnn. I even like the sticker. Im not sure how I feel about the all-red tails, though.

UnDerzon3 01-09-2013 06:01 PM

thanks guys, glad you like it :)

Press22 01-09-2013 08:50 PM

Nice job! Looks like my car but slightly less aggressive

Cuttubus 01-10-2013 09:39 AM

Looks great man! I'm not sure which lip it is, but I love that bumper with a front lip. If it were mine, I'd go to LED tails. Wheels and fitment look good!

dinan19 01-10-2013 05:17 PM

Car looks sharp, but wheels are way too small and not wide enough.

could agree with you on the "not wide enough" part but they are good enough though :)

Style 32s look awesome on E46 coupes! Car looks good man

HardPark'd TT 01-13-2013 04:25 AM

Clean mods, love the wheels.

j3nks79 01-13-2013 04:52 AM

Clean car but the wheels look too small

loffa 01-13-2013 08:44 AM

Please get some larger tires onto the wheels, current setup looks like a skateboard :(

OP, looks good. I also agree the wheels are too small.

Elvin123 01-17-2013 12:20 PM

looks like someone needs a new roundel. Nice car :thumbsup:

UnDerzon3 01-23-2013 09:28 AM

what do you mean?

UnDerzon3 07-09-2013 05:15 PM

okey guys, i've been fixing some details on my beemer.
the season started of badly when i bought new topmounts for my frontcoils. They where a bit higher than the original which resulted in a higher car. So i had to switch back to the old ones.
here's the difference
http://www.oijoij-hd.com/images/2013...Untitled-2.jpg

after this it's been pretty straight forward

I got my hands on a set of oem m3 mirrors

then I removed the front to do some painting
http://www.oijoij-hd.com/images/2013...0611134619.jpg

came out really nice if you ask me
http://www.oijoij-hd.com/images/2013...0617225745.jpg

did some painting on the rear aswell
http://www.oijoij-hd.com/images/2013...0617225833.jpg

this is how it looks for now, and it won't happend much more to it since i'm going back to school this fall. So i will probably sell it, with tears rolling down my face :(
http://www.oijoij-hd.com/images/2013...0619135858.jpg

Hope you guys like it! i know i do! :)

UnDerzon3 07-09-2013 05:16 PM
