Hi From Johns Creek, GA

Hi, My name is Dusty Garson form Johns Creek Ga. I'm 16 and I go to Northview High school.
I drive a 2002 BMW 330CI(E46). It's got a supercharger made by VF-Engineering, and an exhaust system made by Highline Tuning. It also has a front spoiler made by Carbon Creations.

Here are some Pics:

from South Carolina.


Did you have any of the work done or did you get a deal on the car as is? It is actually..surprisingly pretty tasteful...

A CSL trunk with visible carbon lip or LED tails or a vented hood...maybe even lower it a bit
They make this hood for your car http://www.vorsteiner.com/bmw/3Serie...GTS3-Hood.aspx

Are you going to tint the passenger and driver windows? Would suit the white/black or carbon fiber theme.

Any interior/Engine bay pics?




~Ron


PS: Nobody is posting because your car is awesome and you are 16. I know I know....but it's just something you have to understand.

I picked up the car with the engine work and rims done, but I did the bumper myself. I wouldn't have been able to afford the supercharger alone, its like $5k plus installation.

I really want a vented hood so bad. That will probably be my next purchase along with some subs.

Apparently the tint was a bit to dark to be legal on the front windows, so I may put some lighter tint on the front windows.

Engine Bay: (supercharger is on the right)

Interior:

(I realize the carpet needs to be cleaned lol)

PS: Thanks for the compliment Ron

Sure thing man

Only down side is the car is an automatic.

Subs are cool but man...I'd finish the exterior first if I were you.
If you do subs don't put just anything in there. Wait till you can afford a sub that you set as a goal.
I drove a van until I got the M3...I could have gotten a 330 but I wanted the M3. Just be patient with your mods.

Welcome to the forum.



PS: LED angel eye headlights would be

manual is to much of a hassle in the traffic of atl, and it justs seems like it would get annoying after a while. But it does have steptronic

M3s are hot, but a wee bit out of my price range lol. But I got more for less with mine, I have 380 hp in mine with the Supercharger and exhaust.

I've already heard from someone else that angel eyes would look good, so I'll have to look into them.
