- mTech body kit
- mtech suspension with 18" wheels 225 front/255rear
We were never offered the ZHP or mTech packages here in the touring, so you are lucky!

We have to make our own lol.

Looking for something like that but have a towing hook there that a use.

Will upload my pics from mine 330iT of the other section here too soon. (need decent weather to take new ones)
The quad is true M3 exhaust and rear subfloor - I also have the OEM BMW E46 rear hitch installed - it is hidden completely behind the rear diffuser


Here is another quick shot from last weekend.

If the hitch is hidden, how to connect? I have a trap door in my M bumper.
Do you have a picture from the underside of the car at the rear?
Its puzzling me ..

Sorry for the dirty car and iphone pics.





I noticed that this one didn't get commented on since it was posted back in November, which is a shame. I LOVE this car. The CSL reps, clear corners, ZHP bumper, black beans. Really nice. If I wind up doing anything to mine (once it arrives in a few days!), this will be what I'm going for. Just love those CSL wheels.

By the way: What sideskirts are those?
