My Ride: 2004 BMW 320d M-spor
Bernhards 2004 e46 320d M-sport.

Hi, this is my first post here, and I would like to show you my car.
I am copying this from my thread at Bimmerforums.

Here is a little thread about my e46.
(Please excuse my english, its not my native language..)

Bought it in February, no problems whatsoever, all orginal car.


Started modding it the first week, with angle eyes, xenon (even in reverse-light) and splitters on the front bumper. Black kidneys came the next week. I Chipped it, so it should have about 197hp and 420nm.

Then I ordered Coilovers from JOM in Germany. Cheap, but still OK coilovers.
And I fitted it with brand new Beyern Rapp 18" rims. 8,5" ET40 in front and 9,5" ET45 back.





And then, I decided to space the front wheels out 20mm. Aaand found out that I need more negative camber.



So here it is now, and I still got some plans left. Tinting of the windows, nice tirestretch, full paintjob, and more stance.

















And here is a bonus picture from when my shock broke...
I tightened the bolt on top to much with air-tools, so it snapped right off.
To fix this temporarily, we welded a plate to the top of the shock so it was in place until i got the new shock. It broke. So I had to drive a mile or two back to the garage with this camber. :stickoutt



So If you guys have any ideas, please share, and what size of tires do you recommend for a nice stretch? It sits on 225/40 and 255/35 now.

And sorry for some bad phone-pictures here + the dirty car in the others.. :stickoutt
More and better pics will come.

I want it as low as I can, therefore, stretch and lower it more. I think that im going to widen the fenders also (if that is the right term..)

Edit: Rolling the fenders is more right isn't it?

Hehe, nopes, no E30 in this thread..
The foglights are 10000k HID xenon kit. I think that it might be a little to blueish, but still happy with it
