No sunroof needed in Iceland!

I actually like the E46 look without one. Great looking car man!

Thank you

I am planing on doing a projector retrofit this summer.

I haven't really thought about side skirts but might do that one day

Thanks

We've been having a good spring here in Iceland so I used the opportunity to take some pics of the car.

The CSL bumper had a small accident so I put the oem bumper on, will be like this until I fix the CSL bumper ( or not don't know )

Here is the outcome.

I feel like if you lowered her a little more all around, especially the rear, it will look amazing

^ Wonder if those Iceland roads wouldn't allow such antics?

I freaking love Concave RSII's. 18x8.5 et13 all around?

The plan is to lower it more I just had to go to a yearly inspection and the car didn't clear the break tester and the lift there.

As for the roads here they aren't that bad but not that good either so...

And yes they are 18x8.5 but et22 all round, thinking about 5-10 mm spacers maybe.

Nice wheels choice, nice car, nice E46. Good job, it looks really great.

Do you really live in Iceland? I did hear Iceland is beautiful, but also read a whole lot about it, and it has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, is very socially isolated, and it very depressing due to the cold, harsh winters, and latitude (high latitude meaning very little sunlight if any in the winter). I think Iceland would be really awesome to visit, but not a good place to live at all.

What do you think, if you live in Iceland?

Also what do you do for a living? I heard Iceland jobs are scarce.

Yes I really live in Iceland and yes you are right Iceland really is a beautiful place both in the summer and the winter, its a different kind of beautiful.
Has for the suicide rates, I have heard that but I´m not going to confirm that because to be honest I really don´t know.
The winter here can get harsh, for 2 and up to 3-4 months at most you don't see the sun for more than 1-3 hours a day if that and that
can get really frustrating but I can tell you the summer here compensates for that.
In the high summer the sun dos not go down at all, maybe for like 1/2 an hour or so but you see the sun all day and all night.

I work for a company called Ölgerđin (http://www.olgerdin.is/) they produce for example Pepsi and allot of other stuff, its one of the biggest import and production company in the country.
The employment market is coming together again nicely after Icelandic banks went to **** and there were mass employ terminations in almost every company.

Here is a video of Iceland I don't know what time period this was taken over but you can see hove different the landscape is over the country



And thees pictures were taken around 10-11 Pm in may when the sun is not at its highest over the summer

nice photos!

skip the CSL repair and go for a nice authentic lip for your bumper, like ACS, Hartge, Breyton, etc

IMHO

I have never been a huge fan of lips for the oem bumper. I dont minde people doing it just never been a fan of it.
I like the aggressiveness of the CSL bumper
