Thumbs Up Butler's Silver Sedan Build Thread

Hi Guys,

Heres the newest addition to our household!

2004 325i
Auto
silbergrau

Premium pkg
Sport pkg
Mtech II Front


We are the 3rd owners. This thing is super clean! I think I lucked out finding such a well maintained example. It came with a folder of maintenance records dating back to 45,000 miles.


On to the pics!
























I don't have any big plans yet but I'm thinking some 18's, light window tint and some M mirrors.

I'm excited to see where this car goes. Its my first E46 and I'm not up to speed on the E46 mod game so feel free to hit me with DIYs, suggestions or heads-ups.

My Ride: E46 M3 Coupe
Wow, that's a really sharp looking car. Certainly not like the examples I've been looking at lately which are trashed and beat. Congrats on a really nice/lucky pickup and enjoy.

Thanks guys!


Any tips on where to source clear tails? I'm seeing OEM for $300, what quality can I expect going the DEPO route? Half the price, half the quality?

Well I thought I would be able to hold a little longer than a week but obviously I couldnt hold back.

I threw on my stock 162s from the 335. Love it so far, a light drop would bring it together really nicely.. maybe this winter.

Looking good man. Check out khoalty for the red/clear/red tails ($130) and ddmtuning for the m3/coupe style clear/red LED tails ($140). The rcr will be the same lighting as your factory, just that the amber is now clear. The LEDs modernize it a bit but the rcr look just as good. The swap is plug and play. Youre off to a good start.

Looks good. Mtech 2 bumper definitely works with the facelift sedan headlights. Let us know if you need anything!
