This is not the mod anyone wants to have. but the mod that sometimes we are dealt.

If anyone wants to sell their touring, I am likely all ears in about a week....

Thanks guys....My mechanic thinks it's borderline totalled right now. Will depend upon the comps the insurance company drags up.

Then, if it does get financially totalled, don't know if I should do a total loss, or take settlement, buyback the car and then either try to sell it as is or part it out. (repairing it myself is not an option...I am just a beginner wrencher). The interior is sand beige (sport and lux) and in ridiculously good condition for a 2001. And the exterior is pretty darn excellent, since it's never seen a winter.

Who knows...all I know is that I am very sad (and sore) today.

Well.. If it makes it any better it really does not look that bad looks mainly sheet metal. Good thing about E46 its like a lego fairly easy to fix...

So don't write it off quite yet..

@TechieTechie, sorry for your loss, I would be quite upset myself, just keep in mind that you are safe (or are you, you didn't say), and thats all that matters...

If my e46 was totaled tomorrow, I am 99.95% sure I would buy............ another e46, I just love this car...

My Touring inspired by everyone here

Okay Gents,

I joined May 2011 and have been really inspired by all the great Tourings in this thread. I'm a musician not a mechanic, but now I've made it my hobby to learn and work on my 325it. Keep in mind I've never worked on a car in my life. Sad I know....

With the help of everyone here Ive already completed the following,

Stage 1
-Oil change- Thanks for your help e46mango
-Transmission Fluid and Filter Change-Thanks Choleaum for your help!
-Brake Rotors and Pads -
-Expansion Tank
-Clear Corners, Rears and Sides

May 5th 2012



and now... the new updates-

-MMR GT-7s 18x8.5 with Hankook V12 235/40/18



Rusted Rotors and Calipers.. no bueno with New Shoes


Painting Rotors, Cleaning Calipers and ST-V1 Coilover Install




Now with Painted Rotors, much better.. still have to paint the rears!



LED Angel Eyes and Black Grill



New Center Console


Oct 14th ... Current State with updates









Next on my list :

-Steering Coupler - Steering wheel has an inch play and car drifts at high speeds

-Mtech II Front bumper


Okay gents, Hope you enjoy the pics as much as I've enjoyed everyone elses..
