My Ride: COUPE
Opinions Welcome.... bumper and wheel choices











2001 330ci sport with angel eyes, black headlight inserts, paint matched M3 spoiler, factory xenons, Tein S Techs, Matte black grilles, Depo smoked corners and fender lights, muffler delete, ugly a$$ wheels and missing foglights That's all I got for now!


I need some opinions for some wheels.... 19" staggered CSL, 19" staggered ZCP, any other ideas? What finishes also

I need opinions for the front bumper: CSL, M3 or Mtech bumper? Whatever bumper I end up with will not be getting any splitters I hate the look of splitters.

Having a hard time deciding on this stuff since it all looks great.

Thanks,
Rick

either one of those choices of wheels would be great. I like a nice silver or maybe hypersilver on black cars. And maybe go 18 inches instead

19s look perfect on e46s but 18s I can go lower... yea I'm not digging the all black theme anymore previous owner painted the wheels black. Silver and gunmetal looks good for sure

I'd like to go through pyspeed unless there are reasons why I shouldnt.

your first mod should be a few pictures of your car in visible daytime.

Csl with the lip going all the way across looks good but I don't think I've seen a csl bumper with no airdam or splitters... I assume it leaves some holes that's why everyone you see has splitters

the style 68 are great. I rocked them as my winter setup and I received nothing but compliments for years. if they are stretched, poked and spaced out, you can make them look super clean. I'm not saying my car looks super good, but OEM'sh and clean. You will need some $$$$ for exterior mods, so put them back to silver and add spacers. You blacked them out and your car is not that aggressive yet.

That looks real good what spacers are you running and all I need is carb cleaner to remove the black paint correct? The previous owner did that and I do not like it either
