My Ride: E46 320CD
Belgian Beamer 320 CD Imola Red

Hi dear BMW lovers

My name is Kevin, i'm 20 year old and i live in Belgium. I'm still a student but BMW is a passion and every money i earn is spent on the beamer.
It's a 320 Coupé Diesel of the year 2003. I bought it 2 years ago and it had +/- 106.000km. After 2 years of the real driving experience it has now 175.000km but without any problems .
The car has changed quite a lot because once you start changing things you never stop .
Whell images say more than words so here they are :

A pic of how i bought the car



After a while it looked like this :




And now it looks like this

GORGEOUS. You just won.

That car is simply perfect. I especially love how simple and elegant those 5 spoke wheels are, yet they set off the car perfectly. Don't change a thing!

edit: What's that thing on the fender - it looks like you relocated the sidemarker?

Wow intantly one of my favorite e46s, everything is nice especially the silver wheels. Is the roof matte or matte carbon? That's my only issue since everything else is glossy.

Why replica? to be honest the wheels are not so expensive , i bought them for €805 so that's about +/- $1000 i think? so not so expensive at all for good, reliable sollid wheels
