Hey hey what is going on here? Typical Hieu spreading his lies.

I haven't put any new mods on my car yet. Unless you count the Slim Line BMW plate frame or the new oem single piece wiper blades.
Though I might have a surprise in store if I don't get to lazy to take a picture of it.

Glad you like it. I bought some OEM Facelifted clears and bought the OEM retrofit harness. It was a real pain. But I really wanted to stick with OEM lenses.

Just went through your whole build - super clean, I love what you've done so far and I agree, I think you have one of the nicest sedans I've seen over the years

Keep up the great work!

They were awesome! Very light for 18's almost in forged territory. Totally worth it.

You don't know how many times I have looked at pictures of your car and how many I have them saved on my computer. You were one of my inspirations forsure! Not many OG's left on here these days.

Hey guys I haven't been on here lately or update as much. Sad to say I did end up getting an M3. The sedan will be sorely missed. I have so many great memories with that car and it was my first car I owned. The car was sold to a friend and you never know what the future holds maybe one day it will come back to me. I just had the itch to start a new project and it got the better of me. I miss my old car every time I look a this thread.

I now have a new build thread over on M3forum. If any of you guys are over there just say hi!

I might post it up over here as well.

Nope. E46Fans will always be my home. I have been on this forum for over 10 years now. So I will always be around.
