ofcourse, but most of us order from the u.s

for oem parts try getbmwparts.com (low prices all day everyday) just beware of shipping costs

a few canadian sponsors: asp tuning, bimmer specialist... etc

enjoy

Nice new ride, congrats!

Yeah, the majority of us live in the GTA, with others scattered all over Ontario and Canada in general.

Nothing wrong with your colour... but if you don't like it, why'd you buy it? Was the car itself too good to pass up?

If I were you, my first order of business would be getting a rondel back on the hood of your car (the logo), and it looks like the "328" on the trunk lid is misplaced. It might have been removed at some point and put back in the wrong place (way to close to the outer edge of the trunk, and too high up).

u know ur stuff "FEL", wow....
the numbers "328" were taken off....i had to get the trunk redone....apparently the body guy didn't put them on right....that needs to be done....!! The emblem in the front i gotta find one some where for cheap, otherwise its $45.00 at the dealer, which aint too bad.
I got a smoken steal price on this car, an i couldn't turn it down....when i paid to get it redone, i wish i would paid extra and got it done in a color i wanted....!! too late now..!!

i need some rims now and windows tinted....than it might start looking a little better....!! still i would like to see someone that has this same car and has it done up so i can steal some ideas....LOL

Haha, good stuff man. A deal is a deal, so make the best of it!

$45 from the dealer really isn't bad, you won't get one of the same quality for much less than $35 off ebay.

I haven't seen too many E46's in that colour with a lot of work on them, but if I ever see any I'll send them your way. Good luck with the wheel hunt. Just please stay well away from chrome... haha. Tint would also look good, and funny enough with that colour, you could go light or dark and it would still look good.

If that is original paint job and you dotn have rust spots, why ruin it.

I think all black rims with a black deep dish.
