** Pics of Some Mods for my E46

Titanium Silver Fog ducts. Never thought I'd get these as they're a total waste of $, but they were way too cheap to pass up!



20% tint on the doors, 5% elsewhere. Looks WICKED and nowhere near as black as in the following pic. Left the passenger side door slightly open, DOH! My friends' Ducatti and Mazda 3 accompanied me for a nice drive.


My sexy MVRs!

edit: Screw it, here's a teaser of what I'm trying to fit! 19x10 ET32.. super aggressive fitment, but nothing a bit of stretch can't fit. The tire pictured is a 275/30/19, methinks a 255/30/19 or a 245/35/19 should clear. Any input?

my bro had 265/30/19 in the rear of his 330ci before he crashed it, they fit fine with no rolling of fenders, but on a hard pull they did rub a bit. better go with a smaller tired just to be safe i think. car is looking great. keep up the nice mods.

Yeah but your car isn't slammed to the floor like mine, and uses offsets meant for a non-M. There's no way in hell I can do a 275 even with proper offsets, hell my 265s rub once in a while on very bumpy roads w/ passengers. The wheel pictured is a 10x10 with a 32 offset, whereas I should be looking at a 40+ offset! I think a 255/30/19 would do the trick though.

However, I contacted WheelDude for the Linea Corse LM reps and he's giving me a sick deal with Gunmetal painted centers. That, and those wheels are proper fitment for my car so it's a much smarter choice: 19x9.5 ET45 in the rear. . This is going to be done over the winter months anyways, so I'm in no rush.

Ofcourse man! You think I would get back into an slushbox transmission car after forking over thousands to do a conversion in my E36?

No sir. The MVRs are seriously starting to grow on me. Those mesh wheels in the teaser are wheels I'm debating on picking up provided I can sell my MVRs. Seeing as winter is aorund the corner, I think I'll wait til spring and focus on the MTech2 rear.

Keep the MVR's, Bayern Mesh look OK'ish on older cars.
Also deep flat dish is the thing of the past. Right now, step dish and no dish at all (MVR, CSL, CH) are in.

I had some really bad rubbing today with a rear passenger, there's no way those wheels I posted up will work even with a crazy stretch (which I don't want).

I'm going to hold on to the wheels like I said. If I get a good offer in the fall I'll be buying a set of Linea Corse LM reps, maybe with custom gunmetal centers. Those would be SCHWINGGG on silver! Or maybe I'll leave the with the normal silver centers.. Hmmm.....

BLAH! Mtech2 rear is first on the list! Must. Focus.

I put in an OEM Mp3 Business CD unit in today after selling the Pioneer flip out. Man, I love the OEM look! Now, if I could move the damn CF hood....
