My Ride: 2001 325Ci Cabriolet
Adam's E46 Orient Blue Cabrio

Hey everyone, my name is Adam and I finally bought (well 6 months ago) the car that I've wanted since I bought my first car in 2000... I really want an Imola on Imola but that combo is super super rare and only came in M3, or so I have heard.

2001 325Ci Cabriolet
Orient Blue
Bought it in April with 181K

Installed the following since:
GruppeM CF intake
Generic SSK
Red/Clear tails
Smoked corners
clear side markers
Smoked bumper reflectors
Bimmian micro CF antenna (broke)
Weisslite LED license plate lights (don't fit)
DICE module
Parrot and CK3000 Bluetooth Handsfree
Ski-pass thru 10" subwoofer install

Tein S-Tech springs (spec'd at -1.57" F and -0.75 R)
Bilstein OE replacement struts
ASA AR1 18"x9" ET45 (yes it fits up front contrary to what I have searched on this forum )
225/40 up front
235/40 on rear
I'd love to roll the fenders and throw on some spacers to flush out the stance but these aren't the rims that I want so I'm gonna wait on that.

Future plans:

Angel Eyes (soon hopefully)
DRL delete
M3 steering wheel - deal in progress
M3 power folding mirrors (anyone have for sale??)
New rims
Sport seats or full Imola red interior swap
Exhaust - haven't found one I like yet as I'd like to source a Quad-tip exhaust with a quiet rumble

Thank you to everyone on this board so far, there is a tremendous amount of info on here that has helped me love my car even more in the 6 months of ownership...

C&C welcome, including haters

My Ride: 2001 325Ci Cabriolet
So I bought an M3 wheel yesterday and I absolutely LOVE it...

I can even go as far to say as it changes the whole feel of the drive; I used to love driving this machine but now it's even better! The wheel is much lighter to turn, softer leather and it has the 10 and 2 grips!

By far one of the best mods anyone can do...

M3 wheel was the best mod I did when I had my other E46. Car looks great.
