BMW E46 BUILD THREAD

December 2015 i bought my E46, 320i, 2003, coupe. I was looking for a totally stock E46 with 6 cylinder engine and a special color. I found this one with zero rust and full service history. It was always a vision to build it to a Stance car.

When i first got it i started to bring the paint back to life with a nice polish and wax. The audio system was outdated so I bought a Eonon player because of it´s original look and it can connect with the controls on the steering wheel. Later on i bought the supersport black evolution coiler over kit to get it lower, but with 17″ wheels it didn´t look that good so i had to get a new set of wheels aswell. 2 sets later i was finally happy, but now i did´t like the front bumper… so first i bought the M3 look alike bumper but the fitment was terrible. so i bought a CSL bumper (thanks to KOED) with a lot better fitment.

I’ve never liked the chrome details in front, so i plasti dipped the grill. In my mind it looked cheep so i bought some original black ones. Now the car was pretty much as I wanted since it´s my daily. BUUUUT i got bored and lowered it some more with a credit card fitment from wheel arch and tire. NOW I was done with the outside. So i got the interior trims professionally painted in the same color as the car. The car is now 98% perfect.

The future plans for the car is expensive so just stay tuned!
