Sweet!

Who did the conversion and what was the cost, if you don't mind my asking?

I'm loving the E46, but missing the manual.not too many in NZ

Drive is good!! God rid of the cdv so still getting used to the take-offs.. But overall good performance and job.

Took him about a week to complete and yeah all the bits were brand new except for the tranny itself.

New Wheeeels!!

Hey Folks

Sorry about the lack of updates! I've been extremely busy with uni! So glad it's over..

Well i haven't done much other then buy a new set of wheels and tamper with my height setting! Pretty much have it sitting how i always wanted!

New Wheels are a staggered set of 18" style 5's painted in Audi metallic grey.

Now to the pics, Sorry about the overload and as you'll see i polished them up at home as well.

Also bought a new camera, a canon 600D for you enthusiasts, so you might see better quality photos now! Don't know much about editing so ill leave them raw for now! Any tips/suggestions? Holla..



How i got them



Split





The make over











Comparison shot



Bolts chrome dipped



Centers Painted



Bolted!











Off to get tires



Rubberized! Went with toyo proxes 205/40/18 all around



How she sits









Yup She's loww



Clocked over 160 k





Need spacers baaaaad!

those style 5's look 100% better IMO then the 95's. im on style 5's and been thinking so hard if i should get some 95's but after seeing your car back on the 5's painted in a much better color then the black you used previously, i can see style 5's are more sexy maybe i need to upgrade to 18's

Looks great
You need a little bit of tinkering with spacers and maybe go lower.
But this thread did not disappoint!
