Cool Space Grey E46 318Ti Compact :)

Thought I'd share a few photos of the 318Ti just picked up.
Not a very common car, and never sold in the states as far as I know?

It's a factory M Sport model, with sports leather, Bluetooth etc.
Nice and quick to for a 2.0 litre!

Well, it's not actually for me, but I'll get to drive it from time to time

Went for another E46 because in the price bracket it was the lowest mileage best
condition car with the best spec.

The M Sport spec is a bonus too, it looks so much better than the standard Ti

Yeah, great fun, I believe the Ti has a quicker steering rack, and with the lighter
weight, it's alot more nimble! It almost as quick as my 325 too

Haha thanks! Not sure on plans yet. Possibly a wheel refurb, the style 135's
have a few marks on them. Possibly lower it, but Haven't thought too much on it
yet.

Haven't seen that many modded E46 Ti's, most of the pics I've seen are from
Germany, it was a big seller over there as far as I can tell

Yeah, they're cool looking, and I think with the M kit it's extra special.
Agreed on the tailights, but BMW in their wisdom thought they were appropriate
I s'pose! I think they were a feature of facelifted compacts like this one

Yeah, they're not the best looking, but it's very different than any other E46.
A set of factory xenons would look alot better in there

I wonder if you could swap the front end for a regular coupe one?

Probably, but it'd be a load of work I'd say, and it would look a bit strange IMO

The front end suits I think! Not the prettiest maybe!
