Most around here won't agree with the black but they sure as hell are better than red. Someone drove past me the other day in a black E46 sedan with red wheels and this thread was the first thing that came to mind. I just shook my head.

I like the red tubing, it makes everything thats black look more clean and the red itself is clean, so i think its a nice amount of color under there. But dislike red on the inside of the car. The sharpie-mod would be awesome, but that's the most for the red I could handle in there.

I like your updates, MUCH better than before. MUCH better. Still not too fond of black wheels, but some cars can pull it off.

Looking a lot better, I think a set of 135s and a drop would really make your car look nice. Keep up the work.

Props to you for maintaining composure amidst this proverbial s*** storm of hate


I think red rims can look acceptable; providing the fitment was nice and they look professional, not plastidipped. Plastidip is plastidip and it's used for a reason: it's cheap.


I see you changed em back. Word.

Your choices are your choices, your car is your car. If you're pleased, then that's all that matters. Opinions should be offered, ridicule should be minimized.

Slamming is for children. A slight drop with the ride height similar to stock sports suspension with a nice set of 17" or "18" BMW wheels would look very nice.

Damm so much hate in this thread, hey man your engine might pop so you should pull it apart and rebuild it at the same time you might catch a flat so buy 4 more tires, your heater controls could go bad so buy another one of those too and replace it just because **** could break..
All in all its your car man you have nothing to prove to other people. Especially a bunch of people yapping about maintenence who probably haven't maintained theirs. Keep up the good work on replacing parts as needes, and it's your car so do with it what you feel is best for you!
