My Ride: 2005 BMW 325i
So i was on my way home a few days ago after work.. I took a short cut and went threw a local canyon.. As I was going.. I happen to hit a freaken deer!!!! Cracked my front bumper.. To the point where it won't stay on any more.. So I had to put the mtech ll without it being done!! Still primered black :/.. My funds are a little low right now with the holidays..so hopefully I can finish painting the bumper soon.. Here's a pic of how it looks now..

Tell me wat u guys think..

i think those muffler tips are some of the ugliest ones i've seen since those square remus ones, please change to something like eisenmann uses (I have a eisenmann muffler )

you hit a deer and it didn't do any damage to the hood, headlights, or bumper brackets/shocks??
i think you either jumped the gun and put on that primered "made in china" bumper or at most you hit a squirrel

those 5 spoke rims are some of the sportier bmw e46 wheels out. but on second look I take it back, those style 197 look better on your four door.

Haha yea I know I've been meaning to get them taken off and put some that look the same just not rounded off on the ends.. But like u said.. Like the eisenmann ones.. Or like the m3 ones.. That kind of tip

Of course it damaged other things.. My metal bumper support is now lose.. It wiggles back and forth.. Also broke the mounting bracket hence why I said " the bumper won't stay on anymore" which led me to having to purchase the mounting brackets for the mtech.. Since I decided to put that one on.. I wasnt going 60 too.. Plus I never said it was a huge deer.. It was a small one.. Hit the back of the deer.. With the corner of my car.. And the bumper isn't " made in china " it's a khoalty bumper douche..

And well I didn't like the rims that much to pass up some 197's.. IMO those are way more sportier looking than the five spoke..

Thanks for ur opinion

If it's a Khoalty bumper then yes, it's made in China. Also, what the hell is ".."? You use that in place of periods... I don't get it?

My Ride: Not an E46. :(
Looking good so far (at least once you get the funds to get bits and pieces painted). Stahl Blau is my absolute favorite color on the E46!

i think he means bad trade because you can make a long cai for less then $80. mine brand new was $60 and CAI's are more for cosmetic looks then for performance. but i can see your car going in the same direction as mine did in the past. except im doing suspension last and getting a full coilover kit next month.
