Mischief is my crew. I gotta represent. You want me to do mesh or blackd grilles? ambers I need money to change them out and ****. Are Depo's good?

My car appearance wise is stock. So far I have done a Dinan CAI, Bilstein Pss-9s, straight pipes with enlarged diameter, memphis audio all the way around except for my sub which is a focal 33v2, escort 9500i, and 1 new driver side headlight + driver side control arm. (someone ran it over a curb and broke the control arm, and somebody stole my headlight).

I love Tourings! What a great thread.

Here's a pic of mine. I think in this pic I still hadn't installed my coilovers.

This is what I've done with mine:
- CSL 18" reps in HyperBlack
- Ground Control Coilovers
- Racing Dynamics sway bars
- clears all around
- some nice tint. Forgot what % but they have a nice silver colour to them. I don't think I had them in the pic below yet.
- retrofitted leather sport seats in the car
- new PowerFlex FCAB and RTAB going in very soon

What I'd like to do:
- keep thinking of upgrading to Mtech 2 but it seems like such a pain to accumulate all the bits and have them shipped to me in Canada ($300 shipping alone from Tischer)
- better brakes
- more power! Not a likely scenario as all options are pricey.

I'll take a better pic as this one was meant to share my roof rack setup for a mountain biking forum I frequent.

Hei hei Arsevader,

I do but I mainly lurk and use Fanatics as a reference when I need to look up stuff. This Touring thread has been a gold mine.

Santiago your touring looks great! +1 what Opt1mus said about your color...

MtechII is expensive but its worth it..

On the power department, we are all kinda screwed, expect for Stuart...

How come? Wasn't the 330iT not introduced in the US?

No 330iT in North America, we're not worthy apparently. Just 323iT and 325iT

Its very sad really.

Europe gets all the cool wagons:

E46:
330iT
330dT
330xDT

E91:
335iT
335d

E61:
M5 Touring
550iT (did they make this?)

And other brands too...

Audi RS4 and RS6 Avants
Opel OPC Sports Tourer
Merc C63 AMG (although they brought the E63 Wagon to the States...)


I am moving to Europe!

^ yea they screw us on the wagon front, really dumb IMO most wagons that are bought in the US are ordered anyway (instead of bought off a lot), so they could at least give us the option.

I see, I understand though: The US is such a small market for these type of cars.........

Yeah and the fact that the engines are already available here in other bodies (that's where most of the cost comes from, certifying engines for import, which is why europe has so many more types of BMW engines), it would be a no brainer to have had a e46 330it.

Nice 550iT!!! They probably come in manual too...very sexy

This is one reason I started my website. I am trying to peak peoples interests in wagons and lobby European manfrs. to bring over more models.

As you all know...wagons are super logical. Same storage capacity as an SUV, better MPG, and great all-weather traction (with all-wheel drive models). We just need to get Americans out of their stigma over "soccer moms" in their wagons and make them realize the people who buy sport wagons now are young males...
