My Ride: E46 330D Mpaket tour
Another Stanced E46 330d Touring
Hello Fellaz :-)
I'm freelance web designer from slovakia and I finally take courage to introduce my street rocket :-) get ready for lot of pictures.. but before that, I want to show you my first car, it was skoda felicia 97, my father bought it new and I bought it four years ago and worked on it and drive it for three years.. last stage looked like this:
before the last stage I discovered the stanceworks and bmw syndikate website (btw at the moment me and two of my friends started the euroscene.net website, which is after a year biggest lowest club in czech republic and slovakia, so I had to represent properly :-D ), and long before that I got in love with whole BMW thing.. :-D so I knew that my next car will be my bmw. I was driving over the years E46 320i, E39 525tds, X5 30d and my friends E46 330d, and the diesel power totally got me. so I was looking at the latest engine for good money, and the choice was E46 facelift with the 204HP engine, which has very good base for further gain of power.. I was searching for the right one for 3/4 year, and then finally, I found it.. I allways loved estate cars, and I think in bmw especially they look better than sedans, and as a bonus, there is not that much people which are modding them.. so it was a touring, in almost full features - outside, inside and suspension m-sport, with msport wheels, navi, tv, bi-xenon, harman kardon hifi.. and 176000km.. oh, and its an automatic.. its a bit slow-shifter, but I drive for 6l/100km :-) so I went 900km to frankfurt and drive it home without sleeping 38 hours :-) but it was WORTH IT! I absolutely fell in love with the car, its great.. I have it for year, there were few changes, so lets start..
first pictures from germany:
with my friend which was taking me there (two beauties):
and finally at home, totally stock, which is the best thing, when buying the car..
few interior shots, which I'm absolutely satisfied, its perfect..
first mod were the led angel eyes, I wrapped them to yellow vinyl, it looks great.. in yellow also went side indicators and fog lights. rear lights went to red, they look more solid now..
and then.. as I had to represent the lowest club, I dropped the car on ta technix coilovers..
this was the end of first stage, and I drive the car with happy face :-D
then came some maintenance, oil, leather cleaning, and I needed new brakes.. so I bought EBC setup for whole car, brake discs and yellowstuff pads..
then I went to croatia to vacation with my two beauties.. :-D
next stage started at this point.. color on front bumper was a little bit cracked on two places, I didnt want to paint it (wanted to keep original paintwork :-D ), and I found here on fanatics sharpie mod bmw, took some inspiration, bought some sharpies frome usa and called a friend of mine, which draw me my favourite comics - Iron man on the front bumper..
its lookin pretty awesome :-)
then I bought black grille, new badge on hood and a strut brace, which has only estetical function :-D
next step was winter setup.. before I bought the car, I already knew, that wheels will be for winter setup.. 18" on snow are little slippery, but we dont have here that much snow.. and one side looked really bad, so I've decided for a little change, at first I wanted to plasti-dip them on red, but two cans wasnt enough, so I sprayed two light layers of plastidip and then sprayed the wheels with classic red spray.. it turned out great, and was enough for the winter.. :-)
