My Ride: 2002 E46 318i Tourin
PatrickVk's E46 Touring

So here's a few pics of my 318i Touring. Changed a few things as you can see. Lighting, chrome rings, etc.

Changed the strips to carbon. Old stuff was almost gone and sticky. I fixed the nasty part in the top right corner.

More carbon

Notice the crappy strips above the media system

Chrome tacho rings

SMD LED Angel Eyes in my OEM Xenon headlights (Didn't do this myself but had it done by a professional installer)

Footwell lighting done by myself with the E46fanatics DIY by Ivegotissues666

And done with all lights replaced by bright LED's

Next mods on the list are:

- autodim mirror install
- red/white tail lights and side/front instead of the orange ones
- different color gauges. (The mrs is unable to read the instruments clearly at night)
- replace the seatbelt tensioner on the drivers side for a new one. Think the previous owner snapped something off. It jams sometimes.
- install the oem flashlight in the glove compartment.

Looks nice! I'm quite fond of BMW sport wagons for some reason. I think I'll be on the look out when I decide I've had enough fun with my xi sedan.

Very nice!
If I were to give my Touring a first name, I'd probably name it "Alan".

Mostly because I like puns.
