Impressive! What's the deal with the headlight covers, is it custom made? I can't decide if I like them of not

I love the compact because of the lift back and rear wiper but those headlights...just. Ugh. Great build though! I love it overall! As you can see I drive a wagon and I like Euro stuff.

The car has a complete E46 M3 drive train. Everything regarding the drive train was moved from the M3 donor car over to the 'ti.

Measurements done on several similar built sedans using the ACS rear muffler shows that the power output is as with the M-exhaust. However, the ACS rear muffler is approx. half the weight of the quad pipe M-muffler.

In general the E46 Compact is not that much lighter than its bigger brothers. E.g., the 325ti weights only 5kg less than the 325i. The wheel base is only 6mm shorter than the E46 M3 and the length of the 'ti is 233mm shorter than the M3.

However, my E46 332ti weights 1480kg. To my information, an E46 M3 is 1550kg, making my car 70kg lighter
