thanks for this!!

im not sure how wide your wheels are but if their a high offset you might need spacers for the front if you plan on scraping through the town.

but really. thanks for the review I was waiting for your insight on th buy

Where'd you get the coilovers? How much?

Do you need the kidney grills for your car? I just replaced mine, so you can have my old ones for free. Some of the tabs are broken, but it still held in place using some wedges.

No thats for the offer I need to repair my hood before I install the ones I have and I got them from a supplier on Kijiji.

So I've been sick the past couple days and since I was in bed most of these days I spent some time in my car putting in a couple things I picked up.

Installed a CD53 deck after talking to another e46 owner but he neglected to tell me I needed the antenna amplifier with the same frequency as my old antenna amp and a special wire so connect the antenna to the deck but oh well, main reason I wanted it was so I could keep the oem look but have AUX! You just need to order a aux wire for the cd53 off ebay or you can go to your local dealership ask em for the kit but I think 10 bucks for the cable is probably worth it.

Also got my hands a weighted illuminated shift knob, wired it in easiest tapping point is where the night light for the cigarette lighter is literally a 10 minute install if you know what you're doing.

Also got my hands on a new central locking switch didn't realise my old one was just cracked at the bottom and wasn't allowing the button to be properly pushed in, so I used super glue and duct tape to hold it all together, Yeah i know its a bmw but hey you can't see the repair, all you can see is that it works

Need to do my CCV soon, Need to polish and wax my car, Need to Get new rubber for my new wheels and I need to get my clutch replaced so much to do but only so much money and so much time. Hopefully get the CCV done for sunday.

Finally my car is almost complete!

Effay you are on point with that comment, it does look amazing check it out













This summer I was way to busy with work and trying to hold things together at home, so I never got a chance to actually put this bad boy on the road. But I guess its a good thing, now I have time to install my CCV, install my clutch and get some well deserved body work done.

Still want to lower the rear end a tiny bit more but its perfect for now. And for those who want to know about my coilovers and how they are still. I do drive it to stretch its legs around the block with dealer plates, and no noise on turns or bumps, only thing I think I will need to get is adjustable end links because I feel as if the ones that came in the kit will turn out to be no good later on but until then

Thanks cormier! I got some fine adjustment to do with the alignment and ride height but I'll save that for the spring before I put the car on the road. Sucks being a student, always in debt (N)

Thanks Effay and bmw.ae, I'm been busy with school so i haven't been able to get a lot of work done to it so far, but once the weather gets better I'm getting ready to get my clutch installed and replace a couple of the bushings in the back, and a little body work needs to be done, this may I hope to have her on the road. The struggles of being a student lol.
