Loving that exterior color. Looks like you've got yourself a clean E46 there. Can't wait to see what other things you plan to do with it.

Thanks, it was quite a difficult to find from scandinavia. We do not have lot of good examples for sale. I bought this before it was in the public sale. Another option was import good e46 from germany, but prices are so high because of the import tax here. I will update what i do with car, there is still stuff in the "to do list". Suspension will be next.

Thanks, well i think those are good tyres. Not bad tyre noise in my opinion. They look little bit of funny like donuts because of the rim protection. I can say more how they handle when i get new suspension installed.

I believe rear electric windows were not standard in Sweden, this car is imported from Sweden to Finland. In the US all electric toys were standard i think..?

I just looked at your thread regarding your paint correction (just looked at the pics anyway). You have done an amazing job correcting the swirls and scratches cause the paint looked horrible before. It pops now...

It was how i say.. normal condition. Most cars here are really bad shape because of harsh winter, road salt & sand in the road + automatic wash machines which make swirls.

Yesterday i got my new suspension package, it is H&R touring cup kit -35/20mm. Direct from Germany. And also i bought new suspension mounts front+rear and shock installation kits.
