I'm hot 'cause I'm fly
Want to mod but dont know whats out there? Check within. (lots of pictures - 56k)
I'm making this thread because I'm bored but mainly because i see all these threads popping up quite frequently of newbie's to E46s asking "Whats the best bodykit for my 3**i/Ci?" or "Whats a good intake?"
So, therefore, I am compiling a list of all of the E46 tuners i can think of. Feel free to add onto this list, hopefully the mods could sticky it or something so all n00bs can check it out and gain some guidance into what they want. Like i said, add stuff if i omitted it and feel free to give reviews if you have owned the product. I will refrain from saying all the sites you can get stuff from for sponsorship reasons but if you wish to purchase a product listed, check out the sponsors section of this website and one of them will most likely sell it.
So here we go, and be patient as i may have to post a couple posts to get this all to fit:
Bodykits - Each company has a wide variety of kits available, i will show the most popular but check their sites as these aren't the only kits available for out cars. I may have to use some member's pictures. If i do, i'll try to give credit where its due and if you would rather not have your picture there, PM me and i will remove it and put another picture.
E46 Coupe w/ hamann add-on kit and Hamann PG3 rims
E46 Sedan w/ hamann add-on kit and Hamann PG3 Rims
E46 M3 w/ Hamann Kit
Coupe w/ ACS add-on kit
Sedan w/ ACS add-on kit and ACS Type III Rims
M3 w/ ACS kit
OEM BMW M-technik Kits (available from your local dealership)
Coupe w/ M-technik Kit
see the sedan rear, it is the same exact bumper (look-wise) as the coupe.
Sedan w/ M-technik Kit
(the mtech rear is on the leftmost silver sedan in the above picture- Dronell19's car)
Coupe w/ Tornado Kit and 19" RD RS-2 Rims
Sedan Tornado kit is aesthetically exactly the same as the coupe verson, just on a 4 door.
M3 w/ RD front add-on
Those are some of the most popular bodykits for our cars. There are many more manufacturers but i cannot post all of their pictures, it would be way too much. Others to look into would be:
Rims: - Each of the tuners listed above has their own range of rims. Navigate their websites and you shall see them. Listed below are independent rim manufacturers. Visit their sites to see what they have to offer (there are more rims than what is picture here on their website):
BBS - They dont have their own website that i could find, check the sponsors section for a listing of their wheels.
H&R Suspensions- Springs/Coilovers/Cup Kits, etc
Eibach Springs, cup kits, etc.
Bilstein Suspensions- Coilovers, etc.
Koni - struts/shocks
UUC Motorwerks- UUC V.2 Springs, Sway Bars, etc
Dinan- Springs, coilovers, sway bars, shock/strut tower bars
Benfer Performance- Carbon Fiber Strut Tower Bars
Thats it for now. There are a lot more products out there for your BMW. Make sure you check out the sponsors section here to see what else is available.
