Here's a little update... Purchased new tires for the back, 225/40 on my 8.5in rear wheels. Very happy with the results of the tire size change. Ended up giving my car way to much gap between the rear fenders, so the night i installed them ordered 20mm spacers. Also i have finally replaced my window regulator in the rear so i tinted my windows 20% all around.
Enjoy the pics.

here is the new rear tire and fitment.


now trying to be a little artsy.

I guess I'll post mine, I've had it for awhile now. My 2004 TiAg Ci and lowered 2002 TiAg 5-spd XiT.



I have an OEM M-Tech I bumper going on the wagon when the winter is over. I'm also going refinish the wheels soon.



I'll post better pics if I can find them.

both rear doors completed and rear bumper installed and euro cats came in finally (even came with the two 2ndary O2 sensors and the gas temp sensor)

Remaining, modify the aluminum front bumper to fit the larger heat exchanger, assemble the front bumper with heat exchanger, etc - then install on car. install the M3 exhaust all the way up to the headers (I have to cut the input flanges on the section one and weld on the M54 flanges - different bolt locations and larger diameter). assemble the front two doors inside (waiting on some goofy small parts that have to be installed before door cards - but the stuff seems to have been lost)

Is anyone aware of an OEM-style smoked/red tail for the touring? I'm aware of the aftermarket looking one.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but they're not too bad if you want smoked/red. I didn't want LED. May have mentioned it before in this thread. Different vendor than I bought from, but here's a set on eBay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-E46-3ser...item1c1e27ae92

They match up well with a set of smoked corners and markers up front.

Quick question for fellow Tourers...

I'm trying to disconnect my front wipers (they are randomly turning on when the key isn't in the ignition and the car is locked!) and on the Fuse Chart is only shows "Rear Wiper (Touring Only)" as fuses 15 and 45.

Is one of those two the front wiper? Or does anyone know which fuse is? Thanks

49, 52, 59 winshield washer system

and the wipers are controlled by the GM5 - so if the 5 is going...it will cause weird crap like that (usually more of an issue with windows and lights)
