thats a good point man, personally when i mean custom fenders what i was wanting was the fender lips cut out, welded back together, and resealed. and then just a very slight pull. that wouldn't be anything noticeable.

and btw i think your "My Ride" thing should say "The lowest e46 (on bags)"

just kidding man it looks good i'd consider bags too if i wasn't so poor

I hear ya, when I had my fenders cut and rolled I was freaking out. They have been good so far. I have always just had wheels that with sit right at the fender or with enough stretch to clear everything. I thought you were talking about like widened fenders....which I do not have enough balls to do to my car, lol.

lol at the "my ride" comment , when someone comes along that is lower, Ill change it

I'm not worried about selling the car, honestly. It has 163k miles so its value is shot as it is. I'm thinking bigger fenders though. I love riding low, and if I had bags, it still wouldn't fix the issue of the wheels being too wide.
