Another "Santa came early" thread (HRE content)

After rocking CSL reps for 6+ years it's time for something new. HRE 441r, thanks to Jordan Inc for hooking me up. Kinda crazy to keep dumping money into a 13 year-old car I've put 238k miles on over 7 years, but it just keeps on keepin on.

Given these are a bit more aggressive than the last set up, I need to round out the look. Ordering mtech II front bumper and CSL boot as we speak, stay tuned...

Set up:
19x8.5et38 235/35
19x10et44 275/30

CSLs look great, there's a reason they're so popular. but after 6 years it was time for a change. definitely need to catch the rest of the car up to pull these off though.

3-4+ years ago DPE, HRE and I Forgerd were all you saw on e46s...until the cars value dropped lol.

Love the wheels OP with the coming mods it'll def pay homage to some of the OG cars.

Car looks great! Have you considered painting the headlights surrounds black? I think this would be a big improvement...

CSL reps go well on our cars, but I think these (especially with your color) look great...adding the Mtech II will really set the car off!

You and I are on the same boat my friend, except mine have been off/on for 5 yrs. Awesome choice with the HRE's. I pulled a trigger on a set of new wheels myself which will arrive mid feb- early march.

The car looks great for 200k+ miles.

CSL rims are amazing, with that colour for the car I would go with the M3 Bumper
