My Ride: 2002 330i Sport
e46 330i sport wasnt suposed to be a project!!!

sence I have only ever posted here asking question I though that maybe I will show off my car. I bought this E46 about 4 years ago, it was never supposed to be a project car. it was only supposed to be a stepping stone and a nice daily while I saved money to buy an EVO X. The car I had befor this was a 98 mustang GT that I but a little work into but nothing crazy, but I was 18 at the time and drove the car hard. Buy the time I got rid of it the syncros in the tranny were shot and rings in a couple of the cylinders were shot, so I beat the crap out of the car for two and a half years and sold it for $1000 less than I bought it for.

so I found this beauty on craigslist turned out that it actually was owned by a guy that lived a couple blocks over, so I went and drove it fell in love and went instantly to the bank. I got approved for the loan and went and bought the car. when I got back to the guys house the car had "developed a mysterious oil just after I drove it" sure guy whatever.

so I bought the car with some issues but what car doesn't have issues and after 4 years of repair and up grades this is where she sits know. Yes this is still the factory paint with 161xxx miles! Swirly paint drives me absolutely crazy.

custom short ram intake with k/n filter
custom 3' straight pipe exhaust from the cats back
lowered on raceland ultimo coilovers (about 3.3' inch of drop all around)
fenders rolled and pulled
running -0.5 degrees of camber rear and -0.1 front
alzor style 020 18x10.5 et38 and 18x9.5 et24 with 8" tires stretched (225) with 5mm spacers
clutch was upgraded to a valeo stage two with light weight single mass fly wheel.
adjustable endlinks
its not much of a mod but the paint under the hood is mopar's Plum Crazy Purple
