E46 is the most riced out vehicle out there - worse than Civics

I'd keep my car stock before I mod my car with complete sh!t parts

I love the one with the green glow in the footwells. Classic!

The sad thing is lots of people will spend every last dollar of their disposable income on MODS for chrissake. I mean sure it is a hobby and if you are a 19 year old kid working at Best Buy I guess maybe your life revolves around your car and your XBox and nothing else, but for goodness sake why don't you save a dollar or two because some day you are gonna need some money and the frickin 3000 bucks you spent to Hellaflush your car is gonna be money that you actually could use for something productive.

For me, it would scream "I can't afford a 650 vert, I don't like folding hardtops, so here I am."

I've seen worse. These look like they can be saved cosmetically with minimal effort. I do, however, loathe those eBay "altezza" tail lights.

This just displays your lack of knowledge of what made a BMW special compared to its competition at the time. The 1 series is the closest thing to the beloved e30/36/46 that you can get. A new 3 series is larger and heavier than an e39 5 series. That is not what I am looking for in my BMW. My next car will likely be a 235i to complement my e46 sedan...

OMG those green lights on the footwells.. I just don't get that.

Talking about civics, it's a shame that so many of them are riced.. I like almost all the civic models.. if they are stock.

Surprisingly this is more common with older people. At least that I've seen. New kids have been raised in the showroom and have seen what is right and wrong.

ok, so we all look at what others do, talk about it, hear about it... we are fanatics. But that doesn't make anyone here the definitive source on what is right and what is wrong.

edit: for the record, I'm on pretty much on the non mod side of things. except for maybe some minor things. But if someone wants to slam their ride hella low, or put some goofy rims on with 40mm spacers, whatever, its their car.

Yes yes, Kum-Bah-Yah and all that. Judge thou not, or something like that. Don't throw stones in glass houses.

Nobody is saying it is "wrong" - they're just laughing at it. Let the Fanatics have their fun. Quit being so defensive for people you haven't even met!

And yes, let me post a picture that IS WRONG and please don't come back and say it's not.....this is a BMW by the way......

If you were trying to make a case for being worse than a Civic, you people have failed miserably.

If you want an easy laugh just search 88-01 Civics on Cardomain.com. I can probably find 5 worse examples in 10 minutes.

Please, son.... don't even make me try:

How 'bout this one? Should we not pass judgment on this poor BMW freakenstein?

Based on the lug pattern I assume this is a Civic too.
