German XI :)

Hey..

I've done a small foto-session with my 330XI

I've polished the car for 14 hours with the following:

- PSR250 Spezial
- PSR200 V8
- Liquid Glass
- Reingungsknete
- 3M Stützteller
- 3M Anti-Hologramm-Pads
- 3M Lackreiniger
- 3M Lackvorbereitung

Thats cool I never knew that was available. Any idea if it was an independent option or if it came as part of the cold weather package after a certain year or something?

Thanks for the good comments =)

Yes, my XI has "Hill Descent Control" which is a Addon ... not all X-E46 had that function.

The Wheels are "Rondell 0049" with 18x8 and 225/40/R18 Tires from Uniroyal. One Rim costs ~ 200$ or something.

I've used H&R Wheel Spacer, Front 30mm and Rear 40mm.


The Sport-Button is a thing which is developed by me, connected to a sprint-booster-module. If you enable the Sport-Button, the e-Gas is more responsive and aggressive, like a M3 Engine...

Engine-Bay, after done my complete Vanos, the CV, DISA, MAF, all Vacuum things and several other modifications...













Rainbow-Soundsystem:






Zimmermann Brakes and EBC-Pads..




Sport-Button:






Automatic-Gearbox GM5L40-E



Replaced EGS with an older software to get better Torque Converter Clutch:
