I agree with this but would also like to add that a coulpe exterior mods are ok. I don't love the orange side markers and what not but again, there are only a couple items that are acceptable for looks only. All others should have a purpose and that purpose can not be to make it louder or look fast with no performance increase! A huge wing is not performance oriented on a DD.

This is going to be a funny thread though cause everyone has there opinions. For me, keep the carbon at a minimum if it is not a dedicated track car. A lot of this is also due to the fact that clients see my car so I keep it tasteful.

Made by prior designs in Germany.
They also make kits for lambos, Porsche's, Mercedes, Mini's, Jaguars, VW's and Audi's
I wouldn't say its riced up, it looks quiet cool actually I can tell you're really going for the aggressive look, same as what I'm going to do with my e46 sedan when I save a bit more money.

However, thanks everyone for sharing your opinions thus far

Spot on man, at the end of the day who really gives a s*** what others have got to say, they're all just a bunch of 40+ year old keyboard warriors who don't even have a family to tend to because their lives revolve around taking the piss out of teenagers like ourselves on a forum site

That's all fine and dandy but the point of this thread is to tell what will and will not appease to most people.

I get everyone shares thier opinion. But i dont get what makes modding a e46, mtech bodykit CSL rims ONLY. It seems like thats all that we are allowed to do?. What happened when the first e46 started to get modded? Did that owner wright a rule book that you cant do anything except CSL rims and mtech bodykit.

Isn't modding a car, personal taste, yes some can get out of hand to be "unique", but i dont see a point why everyone has to do up the e46 the same.
