very nice! I actually miss mine being stock sometimes. Here are some recent iPhone pics of mine.











I didn't actually wash the car, I just liked the lighting so I stopped and took a few pics on my late night drive.

Looks nice dude! What exhaust setup are you running? And what modifications were needed to fit the quad? Haha.

Thanks! It's an oem M3 bumper. I had a shop cut off the muffler, and replace it with straight pipes. the pipes are routed under the spare tire, and the outlets on the tips are 3.5in.

So, on page 7, there's a guy who has/had Euro 987's on his vert.. I fell in love and I'm seriously debating on if they would look better on my Ci than the VMR718's I have sitting in my garage.. what do you guys think?
Where can I find them? I'm trying to find them online but no luck.. :/

Edit* Also.. 3.5" tips?! Do you have any exhaust videos?

No videos... but if you search for muffler deletes I'm sure you'll find some sound clips either on here or directly on YouTube. it sounds good, but its quite a bit louder than stock. I'm actually thinking about deleting the second resonator, and adding a magnaflow muffler to maybe clean up the sound a little bit.

search for this in google:

custom magnaflow quad e46

and click on the black e46 coupe

Oh, and as far as wheels go, I'd say stick with your stock ones or the vmrs, and just lower your car a little.

I'm still dying to know what those wheels are.. I bought VMR's because they're sick as hell even though many people have CSL reps. I think I'd love to give those other wheels a shot if I can find out where I can find them.

OMBmygod!

Wow, don't know how I missed this thread, so many fn nice OBMs rolling around makes me want to get my (formerly) low mile 01 330i together TODAY but still working it out. Bought it bone stock 2.5 years ago and only started modding it once I moved out of the city and to CA, changes started last Dec. Still a ways to go with M3 suspension and Turner sways in tomorrow, aero kit front lower, rear spoiler, dtm lip, acs rear bumper and roof spoiler, tint to go cosmetically, planning to change interior to dark + cf, want to get the whole thing resprayed and pcoat the wheels to match.. then maybe a supercharger? LoL. why not>???? Has Dinan CAI, UUC pipe, ECS strut bar, upgraded brakes (Meyle/Hawk)

Also, you guys take some nice pics, I'm embarrassed with this iphone biz.
