My e46 Touring Thread

I have been meaning to do this for a while, so here it is.

I bought this 2002 325it in the beginning of 2014. Very clean, 2 owner, Georgia car, in great shape. It is a factory 5 speed manual w/ Sport package, HID, and I loved the color combo. I overpaid for it but I was willing to pay even more for this.

Here it is the day I bought it (sorry, no bigger pics):



Started by doing basic maintenance and replacing needed broken parts.

The oil filter housing had the common leak so I had the dealership fix that.

Valve cover was leaking so I replaced the gasket.

New air filters and fresh fluids went into the car.

I Didn't like the Sport Wheel on there so I got me some OEM ZHP Wheels:



Notice here that the Chrome window trim has been blacked out.

Next up is the front bumper.

Here it is before:




It had a bit of rash and the clear coat was starting to peal, so instead of repainting it, I decided to go with a ZHP bumper.

Ordered all new parts to do it right (brake ducts, front cowl, etc..):


and the work begins:



Front right blinker tabs were cracking so I ordered a replacement blinker.

Bought the bumper from Khoality and should have it back from paint soon.

Since the car had Sport Package, it came with the sport steering wheel but I wanted the true M wheel with the tri stitch and the thumb knobs:


Bumper is installed but have not taken pictures yet. I will this week.
