Alwaysbored786's E46 330ci, first time in the showroom!

So i've been on this forum since 2009 and I never thought my car was good enough for the show room, since then i've done quite a bit of mods and i think you guys might like it. Let me know what you think!







































All the pictures were taken on an iphone and edited in lightroom a bit.

Looks real good. What tyre sizes are you running and did you roll or pull the rear fenders?

Only one criticism your bumper grill is discoloured! Needs some back to black stuff on it.
