Cool building thread: quite low, swedish e46 coupe

Hello guys
I'm a 19 years old guy from sweden. I'm driving a 323ci which i've had for a little more than a year now. I've had been posting a build thread on the car on a swedish forum but thought that it could be fun to get a thread here at fanatics aswell!
In this first update I will post everything i've done so far so that you guys will be up to date.


Starting off with some pics of the car that my friend took the day after i've brought it home





switched to black turn signals up front


thought i needed some new wheels so...



Rondell 0067 2-piece split. 17x9" square


first testmounting on the car, I really like how the color of the car and the color of the rims matches!



then it was time for some tyres.

First I was going for 215/45 tyres but the guys at oijoij-society.com convinced me that the tyres where to wide so eventually I ended up running 205/40


in the beginning of april i got my hands on some coils for my car. Sadly i don't have any pics of the mounting process but here's the result with the coils as low as possible...


a second testfitment of the rondell wheels. As they where hitting the spings in the front i was forced to put on at least 10mm spacers. In this pics i had 15mm spacers on




got some red tone on the tail lights




got the new tires on the rims. 205/40

...and finally i got the rondell wheels on the car!







at this point i was overall happy with the looks of the car except that the wheelgap was a little bigger in the front than in the back. Still coils in the bottom.
Eventually i removed the helpersprings on the front coils and according to me the car came out really good





now i only needed some spacers in the back so i bought two 20mm spacers from a friends friend. the bolts i got with them where to long though. But i chopped them of a couple of mm and then i all came togheter.





here's some pics which where taken in the end of the summer, these shitty ones i've taken with my mobile...



...and these ones where taken by my friend...




that's where i'm at at this point. I will update the thread if i do something to the car
next on the schedule is getting better fitment and after that we'll see what happens

finally i just want to say, it's all about details...



see you when i see you

ps.

Looks great man! I'm not sure which lip it is, but I love that bumper with a front lip. If it were mine, I'd go to LED tails. Wheels and fitment look good!

Car looks sharp, but wheels are way too small and not wide enough.

thanks. i'm going for a clean and a little softer look, been thinking about m-tech och m3 front but it would turn out a bit to aggressive imo

could agree with you on the "not wide enough" part but they are good enough though

OP, looks good. I also agree the wheels are too small.

okey guys, i've been fixing some details on my beemer.
the season started of badly when i bought new topmounts for my frontcoils. They where a bit higher than the original which resulted in a higher car. So i had to switch back to the old ones.
here's the difference


after this it's been pretty straight forward

I got my hands on a set of oem m3 mirrors

then I removed the front to do some painting


came out really nice if you ask me


did some painting on the rear aswell


this is how it looks for now, and it won't happend much more to it since i'm going back to school this fall. So i will probably sell it, with tears rolling down my face


Hope you guys like it! i know i do!
