Hi, Im a new guy here

I just got this almost a month ago now. Its a 2000 328 got it stock with 140k, and Im quite happy with it now that I got it lowered with decent wheels.





If anyone is interested in 19's, I have a set of adr's or asa ar1's that I got with the car for sale.

Welcome.

However I do agree something is wrong with the camber. Reminds me of those mexican lowriders of the early 90s. Also there is a common problem with broken springs on the E46... I think your springs are broken. Does the car roll/drive? Let me know if you need a tow, I can PM a member in the local area who happens to own a tow truck.

Oh and I think the prior owner may have put the wrong wheels on the car. They definitely don't look like they're the proper ones! Also the car looks like it's leaning to one side. Are your tires uninflated on one side?

read Mango's sig for your next mod.

Also, has the subframe been inspected/repaired? Congrats on the new ride, just remember to keep it up on maintenance to ensure you get the most driving pleasure out of it.

Im pretty sure those are x5 wheels. There is a local guy here that has x5 wheels on his and he did just about the same thing. Hopefully you lowered with coilovers like he did, if you didnt and just cut springs, you may see problems.

Sorry to see what happened to your car, OP. You really need to tighten up your wheel bolts in the rear quickly, though...both those wheels look like they're about to fall off...or did you just try stacking too many dead hos in the trunk? Three fit comfortably, so they say, but you must have 9 in there...that is, if your lugs are tight.

GL. Welcome to Fanatics! I'm sure you hate the place already...and to be honest, I think I probably wrote the nicest response so far. Am I right?

It gets better, though, it really does!

Woah, how tf did I miss them and the opportunity to comment on them?

OP, those are excellent! Keep up the good work! Paint your tires green to match like I did...think that would pull everything together!
