Johal - Did you get the new wheels from Apec (EC-7, I think)? Also, did you lower it more?

Lowered it about another inch (need to raise it again, but in between what it was before. Bilstein shock's don't like this "slammed" ride height)

Apex used my car to market their new wheels, I would love a set in the future! For now, I will run my tires down on the lm reps and I have a second set (style 44's) for auto-x

Its the new PS-7 wheels!

My Ride: BMW E46 Touring
Hi, last year in january 2013 i bought my 19" BBS LM rims. The sizes are 8,5x19 ET 17 and 10x19 ET 25. The wheel sizes are 215 / 35 19" and 255 / 30 19" ... last week then i got my rims back from my friend. He has power coating the inner stars in glossy black with golden screws. The outside dishes are shiny polished by machine. So the 3D Original BBS emblem in golden black matches very good to the golden screws. From oct 2014 to feb. 2015 i will spend much time about my m3 project with original m3 46 parts like the hood, fenders, pumpers and the front and rear axle also the front headlights. Also i want to buy a coilover from k-sport which fit then to the m3 axles and my touring with the BBS LM 19". Still i have about 3 years the H&R Cup Kit 55/35 it looks not great and does not fit really. The engine comes maybe 2016. Greeds from Berlin, Germany, Henry

330i_ZHP? Your wagon is my inspiration. Holy. Hell.

You've had your air ride set-up for some time now. How are you liking it after putting more miles on it?

Thanks. I've been toying with the idea of taking my style 5s off of my E39 touring and putting them on my E46. I did a test fit with the big tires still on but it just didn't seem like the wheels fit as good as they do on yours. Obviously the tires were too big. (235-45-17) I have a square set of 17x8s. I was thinking about picking up a set of 215-40s to try them out.

How low is your car?

I love it - and I am ready to sell the barely used Bilstein PSS10s with TMS RSM and Vorslag front camber plates

I'm on my stock wheels at the moment. I have a set of square 19x9.5 style 67's in my garage, as well as a set of RC300/RC301's.

That is high praise. Not like the Bilsteins are a bad coil over.

Here's a picture of mine, it's the same type tail light as jyerabutar's.
Hope it's okay.

Thanks for posting that 330berg, I have been looking at those tail lights online but haven't found many pics of them. I want them but I was concerned they would look ricey, similar to the LED ebay tail lights you see on cheap Honda's. I'm not sure if you understand this reference though considering you are Danish. They look OEM on your car though, so I am very tempted to get them myself.
