My Ride: 318TI E46
E46 Compact 318TI from the Netherlands.
Let me introduce myself.
Stephan, 25 y.o. industrial engineering and management student.
I bought myself a e46 318 TI Compact 143 HP. With the N42B20 engine.
The main reason why I bought this car is because someone sliced a knife threw the roof of me and my moms BMW Z3. I don't want the Z3 near my house (where it happend) again but I still need a car for work etc.
So here it goes.
I started with this(dealership photos):
I started "modding":
The previous owner destroyed my right mirror and fixed it with glue so I decided to get a new mirror from the scrap yard.
The "new" mirror was for a E46 Sedan, I thought all the same. Guess I was wrong. The frame of a sedan did not match the frame of a compact so I completely rebuild the mirror on my old frame. Had to cut and solder the wires.
I allready bought some original BMW winterwheels on steel rims, I'm currently sanding them one by one and painting them in primer. I'm still thinking about which color I'm going to paint them.
Things to do:
- New leather shifter
- New interiour panels(they were wood, I want aluminum)
- New tires
- Perhaps other rims( I saw a thread with an M3 gray with VOLK rims. I like)
Todo in the future:
- Spaghetti manifold
- Supercharger (eaton?)
Any comments/suggestions are more than welcome.
Hmm no automatic resizing on pics.
Working on that.
