Didn't know you did Spence's GT2 and 996 TT.
Havent had his 996 in, just done minor stuff to his gt2.

Was having a chat to him last time re: using new 997.2 turbo coolers on his instead of the mega dollar ones he was thinking of buying..... Im pretty sure his gt2 is coming in this week actually so ill have to find out where he's at with that.

I went for a bit of a cruise through the hinterland today and found a nice lookout. Had the DSLR in the car from a euro meet on Friday night so i figured i'd take some photos. Car isn't all that clean but its a nice view! There are also a couple of pics from the euro night. Enjoy!











One of Mitch's 46



And a slightly out of focus pic of both of our cars. I was totally going for the soft focus effect and it has nothing to do with the sh!tness of my camera...

For reference this guys more aggressive than me so it will fit

Hi All
I'm a newbie here.
My car:
2002 BMW 330i Individual in Estoril Blue.
No mods.
This pic was taken by the car dealership I purchased it from a few months back.
Cheers!

11EAS,

Thanks.

No big plans. I'm thinking about the DYNAVIN v5 and would love to get the wheels cleaned up a bit - they're a bit scuffed and could do with a pro polish.
Other than that I'm happy to leave it in original condition. Awesome car

Sli123 - Nice car you got there. Right colour, right motor, update and it's got the M kit! Personally I would look into some different wheels as opposed to refinishing those ones. Not a fan of the studded look. Look at the other 18" OEM wheel options.

Just thought Id share...

I recieved the following in the mail on Tuesday, after a long period of waiting (3 months wait, ordered from USA - no stock - so had to be made for me in Italy, then sent to States then to AUS) my SuperSprint Race exhaust FINALLY arrived from the States and I couldn't be happier! Need to probably bring a box of tissues with me every time I drive.

A Big thank you to Jurrian @ European Auto Source for the Exhaust & Paul @ JustGerman here in Brisbane for getting it fitted it in such short notice!


When it arrived:




Tips (Quad: 80mm's):




After the installation!

In Garage:


Tips:


Side angle:



Apologies for my Car being so Dirty, also iPhone quality pics - I haven't had the chance to clean it in 2 months or so. I Blame this incredibly s*** Brisbane Weather! 1 thing I noticed today, my fuel economy went from an avg 12.6 to 19.9 - damn you sport/s6 mode!

Here is what it usually looks like...







Thanks guys,

Elliot

Thanks for the nice words Goondaddy.
To be honst I really like the wheels (quite similar to the nice ones Msbhvn is getting into).
For this car I'm looking at keeping it "as is" as much as possible. The next one (edit* additional one!) might get a few changes though!

@11EAS,
re: new exhaust - nice!
re; the dirty car pic - if you love spending time with (ie. cleaning!) your car then the current weather is great
cheers

Zorst looks good Elliot! Can't wait to hear it . I know what you mean about the rain. My car has come out of the garage twice in the last few weeks. I finally got a daily so the e46 stays clean I love it! ...Besides the fact that i spend at least 6 hours a week sitting in a 1985 camry At least i blend in with the P-plate
