Thanks, but no worries. It's fine. Treated and all good.

Just that his doc advocated the tinted windows.

Good to hear! Glad he's okay :]

Yes. My dad has bad daytime vision due to 'blindness' from the sun. Surprisingly, he's also exempt & has tint on his windows. I figured they would just tell him to wear sunglasses, lol.

I think that may be an add on lip, I've never seen an OEM bumper like that, but I could be wrong.

It doesn't look like a lip. It looks like an entire front bumper but I've never seen one, at least in America. Maybe its a European spec?

Its an add on lip. It comes as an Aero kit with a rear lip and side skirts. There is also an option for a spoiler.

I have all the parts sitting in my room waiting for paint.

Attached is a photo of the rear fitted on my car.

I bought mine from Snik, who originally got if from ECS. Still in the original box.

They still have it listed, but I don't know if they stock it anymore.

When i worked at the dealer they had these Option books one of which was for e46 so nay strange looking options but weirdly really good looking things, Maybe it was for the European models or something dont remember but lots of options that may surprise you today as an OEM thing

BTW, the shocks/struts are already "blown" they were about 5 years ago. (if original)
They're not original, just recently replaced <5k miles ago
I'm already wanting to go lower mainly to get rid of most of the wheel gap. Should of gone h&r race.

I have several of the brochures still. Not a euro thing but an accessory part.
That one is the "Aero" kit for the preface sedan. They also have an Aero kit for the coupes and wagons. Although the coupe Aero kit had completely new bumpers frt/rr.

Stock.

Reason: I just love the car the way it is with ZSP and ZPP.

Correction: There is an 8" Bavarian Autosport decal on the rear window.
It adds 5hp.

The only mods on my car are angel eyes, LED license plate lights, and a Kenwood stereo because my factory head unit stopped working altogether. Everything else is stock just the way I like it.

My Ride: Touring, and others
My Touring is Modified. It has 35% tint, and the Parrot Bluetooth module. If the car is not 100% original, then it's modified........right? If that's the case, then I have different headlight bulbs, lenses, oil, filters, spark plugs, coils, transmission fluid and filter, front pump and converter, tires and the air in them, expansion tank, serpentine belt, idlers and tensioner, water pump and hoses along with the thermostat, coolant and the fan switch O-ring.
