Coolest- well maybe the only E46 at carlisle

My custom E46-el-ca-bimmer at carlisle this weekend was a hit everyone loved it. I guess there were not alot of BMW people at the all truck show. i put over 40,000 miles on her since built in early 2010.

Beautiful! What's the final weight numbers and guestimate the F-R weight ratios? Also, did you customize anything on the rear suspension? And how are you passing inspection?

when I built it I was concerned about light weight rear, I figured if I,m makin a pick-m-up truck I'll need to pull a trailer. I really beefed up the framework of the bed floor , my license plate I have mounted that it actually slides in a class2 receiver. I don't recall the numbers but I weighed it after built and it was 200lbs heavier than the cpe. the suspension is all factory bmw I have a body-custom shop we do pa enhanced inspections

He grafted the rear end of a wagon into it to make the PU bed, read above.

I knew it was built for a motorbike, such huge props in outs at Trackday I'm sure!! Sick.
