So I've been away from e46s for around 4 years due to ill health and my e30 track car! But I'm back as I knew I would be I love the 46 too much to get anything else!

I always wanted an imola saloon and it had to be manual so I can across this 325 local and bought it!

First step major clean




Second step exhaust



Front plate delete


Eibach sportlines fitted no pictures as of yet.

Next mod m54b30 intake cam, inlet manofold, throttle body, maf, airbox, green cotton panel filter, remap!

Il try get some photos this weekend to be honest I was hoping it would have dropped a little more than it has my previous 46s were mega low on coilovers but this time I'm thinking maybe 19s will be the way to go instead of 18s and killing the bottom of my car on the drive to work every day!

Aswell as fitting the cam and intake I'm also considering a wizards of nos kit and some clubsport splitters in black or carbon if I find decent ones!

No we don't have zhps in the uk unfortunately so it's black sport leather with the clubsport/zhp gear shifter inside.. I would like a zhp cam but also that is something I can't really get hold of here

And thanks! Once I decide on wheels and a few other bits il be happier... Im never satisfied

I'm liking the new look but I'm far from finished.
What you all think?

Looks wise I think wheels will be my next mission. Between
Csl style (classic design always look good)
Bbs ch style (again always a winner)
Ac schnitzer type 2 or 3 style but with concave (are these available in reps)
Open to suggestions I'm wanting 19s this time round
