View Full Version : Parting out my heavily modded E46!!!

02-16-2005, 02:27 PM
Hi guys

Ok i've decided to part out my car. Its in a tightly spaced garage, and I don't want to drive it out while theres still salt and snow on the ground. So i'll sell off the parts that are the easiest to remove first (unless you know how). All of these parts are recently installed and in excellent condition as most of my mods were done during 04, and my car has never seen a winter/spring! I hardly drive since i work downtown and I travel a lot. I'll consider trades for your parts only where I specifically say so below in the description. Please read carefully, and NO LOWBALLERS!

If interested, please email me at mikeycheng@hotmail.com

The Steering wheel, is it non-heated? Or pics would be good too.. Thx

I am interested in the following:
- M3 steering wheel only if we can successfully make the swap (I have the triangular 3-spoke Sports Package one)
- Car cover if it's usable outdoors

I will email you to make the arrangments.

The steering wheel is non-heated (I didnt know they made heated ones?)

Here are some more links/pics:

Conforti CAI (I underquoted myself, i actually paid $490 for it - i'd never high-ball someone!):

You can see the steering wheel in this post (i'll try to post a close up later):

prtty good prices, except for the HID 6000k bulbs(which i need)...they are $125us brand new (xtec) but u want a swap with oem which are twice as much.

if u have a rear mtech add-on, that would fit on a sedan.....i'm int.

maybe u, me and jmalixi can do a three way steering wheel swap since i want the three spoke one. let me know.

The bulbs are pretty decent priced IMO because they are Phillips, same brand as OEM.. I've never heard of those other bulbs before (I'm not knocking them or anything but some of the other makes turn yellow quite quickly)..

Are you selling the driver and passenger seat by any chance? If so what type are they and would you be able to post pics of it? thanks

If you want to swap the HID bulbs off my car then I'll take them. They work for Bi-xenon right?
