My Ride: 330Ci Convertible
[PICS & Mod Details] Blue 330 Vert

Original Thread (With Before Pics): http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=777182

I just have to say, I LOVE this car, bought it in June of 2010. Having a convertible in California is fantastic! I'm originally from Toronto, so I REALLY appreciate the Cali weather.

Also got two kids, and although it's a tight fit with the whole family, it's "do-able", with a booster and a car seat. We have a SUV, so it's rare I have to load everyone in my car.

Updates as of Sept 2011:



M3 Replica Front Bumper; no reflectors
Wheels: VMR 701 (Front 19x8.5et35 225/35; Rear 19x9.5et45 245/30); Spacers: 15mm front; 12mm rear
eBay Angel Eyes (Cheapo's still working after more than a year)
Megan Racing Coil-Overs



eBay Strut Bar
- Really just bought this to protect the strut towers from possibly mushrooming. But looks nice too.
VANOS and DISA replaced



Dynavin v5; Rear view Camera
Short Shift Kit; Custom leather shift boot with tri-color stitching
CF Style Pedal Covers
//M Steering Wheel; CF wrapped myself



Dynavin USB ports and Aux In audio jack



Hardwired a USB/Cig lighter charger extender into glove box
Dynavin iPod connector in glove box



Rear View Camera



Smoked LED Tails
Smoked side markers
Muffler Delete; Titanium Burnt Tips
Painted Rear Reflectors
Blue CF Roundels Front and Back

My Ride: is a money pit.
I noticed that you added a 15mm spacer in the front and 12mm rear, so final offset is 19x8.5 +20 front and 19x9.5 +33 rear? any fender work? rubbing? Car looks great BTW! Love topaz I would suggest some side skirts and an MTech2 rear bumper next.

Definitely the rear bumper and skirts next.

I rolled the rear as much as I could, but it was a real pain, I would recommend cutting to allow for the best offset. I would like to go even more aggressive on he back but can't until I cut.

I had 255s on the back and dropped down to 245s, now there is no rubbing at all. Same with the front, went from 235s to 225s and now have no issues. I have a high rear camber, as negative as possible without camber plates. And some negative on the front.

The car looks fantastic! IMO Change the rear to Mtech2. Also finish the interior in CF to match the steering wheel and get right of the wood trim
