I was flipping through IG #e46 pictures and saw this today. Out of all the ones I stopped and took a look at it.
Fantastic, nice job.

Thanks man, this is the lip I had in mind, so many vendors make it, I honestly don't know which brand fits the best on the OEM bumper , also this is the pricest one I've seen of this lip, pricey = fitment, I have not a clue haha

I don't really like to chime in unnecessarily w/ negative opinions but I hope it doesn't drive like that out on public roads. I care about everyones safety. Wrong wheel/tire size, alignment etc will cause you to get into an accident and possibly hurt others. There's tons of videos of stance guys spinning out of control and smashing into people (while driving "normally" too)

Don't like the look at all anyway. The car in your sig looks far far far better as closer to stock. Looks nice with the stock looking (non-blacked out) lights and original looking amber reflectors. The wheels also look pure and motorsportsy too in your sig and looks to be much more high end/expensive/etc. I can't believe it's the same car as it is. Sig=$50,000 high end. Modded version=$5,000 used car lot teenager style. If that is in fact your car in the sig I think it's nice as is, man. you've got a nice example there in your sig. Not digging the modded one at ALL. Please be safe for everyone and at least return the suspension to stock or at least respectable ride height with motorsports style suspension and alignment for proper grip and safety.

The whole stance scene with kids trying to hard park and parking lot pimp with baggy/saggy pants is so old nowadays standing next to slammed cars. it's not really that cool! Just my opinion, thanks.

^ High horse, you get off it much? I wouldn't even know where to begin to pick apart your post based on obvious personal judgement and not facts.

And, please show us these videos? I've been driving "stanced" cars for a decade and have yet to have one accident.

His setup isn't even severe and it's on bags so obviously it doesn't drive around town with the fender touching the lip of the rim. I'm down for some videos too Mango

There's no getting Mango off his high horse, but I agree with him on the slammed suspensions. Excessive negative camber, reduced tire contact patch, reduced suspension travel and tire sidewalls that are stretched beyond their intended limits all add up to poor and less predictable emergency handling and braking. In some places, stanced cars won't even pass inspection.

Just because you haven't had an accident, doesn't mean it's a good idea. The same could be said for driving on summer tires in the snow.

^ I can see your view, and I will tend to agree if the modifications are taken to the extreme.

In the case of this M3 the negative camber is minimal and the stretch isn't horrendous. I don't think this car poses a very big threat to the public's safety. There is a fine line between modified and safe, and modified and unsafe. This car seems to fall into the first category.

OP, what is your current air ride set-up?

Which M3 are you talking about? The red one in the first post? Because the drop on that thing is pretty extreme.

Every tire manufacturer specifies an approved wheel width range for each tire model and size. Every car manufacturer specifies a certain range for alignment - camber, toe, caster.

If we want to remove all ambiguity between modified/safe and modified/unsafe, I would generally consider any car outside these manufacturer specs to be unsafe.

The drop is extreme because it's on bags...

Mango , I respect your opinion , however I would think when you've had 23,493 post since 06 you would maybe have a tad more knowledge , first off the car doesn't drive like that, that should be common sense when I said it's "bagged" I have a controller with 8 settings, set each of these to whatever I want , the suspension is a bag over coilover setup , let me say that again "bag over coilover , it drives better than stock , it drives better than 3/4th of all coils out there , please watch this video ... The white brz and white golf R are my good buddies cars, he actually is vendor for airlift, as a lot of people love to say coils out perform air which is honestly not always the case



You can say stance bla bla bla, , but those 19s I had which came stock , and let me tell you I love and still have ...but When I put on these 18s it drove a lot better , and I had air with the 19s before I swapped over to the 18s , soooo say what you want , hate all you want, but until you drove in a car with airlift products I wouldn't even comment on the drive ability

Thank you lol, ya trust me my car isn't some stance death trap , it honestly drives so nice, my ride height isn't even super low lol, I'd like to lower after I roll the rears however , but I'm happy with how it rolls now though
