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

Recently been featured in PerformanceBMW Mag in the UK.

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

http://ilovebass.co.uk/article/255/r...ers-e46-330ci/

few more pics on that site that did a feature on my car also.

Really dude? So any E46 on ACS wheels now looks like yours.
C'mon man. Give it a rest. Yes, yours was legit but its a common car common cold and fairly common wheels.

It will be repeated some as good, some not so good, and some will be better.

One of my favorite wheels. Looks perfect on black coupes 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
