Cool New Mods: Mini-review

OK, well, I've got some new mods to show you guys, but since I don't really want to post pics of my car until I reveal my new look this spring, I just included 3 small pics to show each of the 3 mods.....

First is my hawk pads and brembo cross drilled rotors. By looking at the pic, you see the beautiful cross-drilled rotor which shows nicely behind the rims, and how clean/dirty my wheel is. I'm kicking myself in the ass for not getting these pads sooner. Although my wheels aren't spotless, they certainly are pretty clean for not cleaning them for a couple of weeks. And most of the dirt is from the salt and sh!t from the snow storms. Braking power is pretty much as it was with stock, might have gotten better, but didn't really notice it, but there was definitely no lose of braking power. Overall, love it

Second is my remus 84mm DTM exhaust. Had this baby put in with the second resonator removed. I first drove the car with with both resonators in, then decided to have the 2nd one removed. The exhaust sounds beautiful. Perfect for me. it has such a nice deep growl to it. It's pretty quiet at idle, but when you gun it, it sounds awesome. Anyone who has a remus, I suggest you remove the second resonator. You will not regret it. as far as power goes, I feel a very small gain in power, but than again, this is only an exhaust, and no one really feels great power gains with an exhaust. From inside the cabin, there is no droning or anyhitng, Such a great overall exhaust for your E46 if your looking for sound, performance, and looks.

Last is my limo tints. Had these put in today. Got rid of my b!tch 35% tints for these limo 5%. God I think they look gorgeous on my car. I took these pics in a well lit parking lot, and you still couldn't see inside the car. From inside, driving at night, it's not that bad at all. I could see just fine.

I'm waiting for the weather to clear up so I could wash up my car, and take my last set of pics which I will post again later on next week. Everytime I wash my car, it snows, and just gets my baby dirty again

Sorry for the short reviews, but I didn't feel like boring anyone. I'll try to post a sound clip later when I take some nice pics of my car. Sorry for the typos if any.

Thanks. The spoiler is the OEM E46 sedan spoiler. I got my exhaust for $350 brand new Can't say why I got it so cheap though, gotta keep it on the DL

Nah, just kidding.... I at first got it from a sale this company was having on Remus exhausts, so They by mistake sent me a 330 exhaust first instead of a 328 exhaust, so in order to make things right, they sent me the right one ASAP at their cost, which was around 350. thats y it was so cheap.

I got the brembos from tirerack along with the Brake pads. They don't rust. If you get them, make sure Brembo drilled them, and not some second or third party. If some second or third party did the drilling, they could crack over time. Just make sure it's drilled by brembo.

I was gonna color the trim black, but I'll wait until my new kit is on. I'm selling my hamann sides and rear for the rieger sides and rear to complete the kit, and I'll see how it looks after. I might keep it chrome, because there is a chance I might powder coat my rims black, and polish the lip. This way, the chrome trim around my black windows, will match nicely with my polished lip on the black rims.
