Do you think this is appropriate?

I found this car on "Jimmy's nightmare page"

Its an e46 with a FULL hamann kit, including wide body!

Jimmy has the nerves to put it on his "nightmare" page.

Ya,

I think it should be there. The rear wing and roof spoiler look absolutely GAY... just because "Hamann" designed it doesn't mean it should automatically look good... sometimes I don't get their designers.... straight from Erebuni or Wings West?

The wide body and wheels can stay, the front and rear bumpers are borderline.

I like that e46 alot, if i had the money to do that i would, except i'd probably get bbs rims, and a different spoiler

As for the LWT spoiler, sure it looks cool on the racing bimmers but it's absolutely USELESS when daily driving. I bet if i had one, it'd snap off within the first day or two of driving.
but it does LOOK ok

the guy is just trying to make money that's all. so he starts putting pictures of "normal" looking cars in there as well. i've seen couple of cars that was nothing wrong with them and where on that page.

The widebody car is borderline at best. I don't care for the rear wing much, and I've *NEVER* been a fan of roof spoilers....too Honda Civic like.

Personally, I like the LTW splitter (along with the LTW wing...). A bit much for a street car, but since it was factory BMW, it could hardly be considered *rice*.

The LTW spoiler should have been left black though, and not painted body colour. It was designed to be adjustable, and having it painted (rather than a flat black) basically makes that difficult, and crappy looking.

I like the LWT Splitter too but it looks like it doesn't fit properly. If that guy drives anywhere, that painted lip is going to get dinged up really really fast.

I like the widebody, but the rear valence, roof spoilers etc...
I know some people like it, but its not for me.
The e36 on the other hand looks alright though.

I think the car is absolutely mint! Maybe the only thing i'm not thrilled about is the roof spoiler.

i think djbeemer would love that e46
i think a friend of his has one similar except even more extreme!

p.s. on the side note i think jimmy is an a$$hole for selling crappy bulbs at high prices to unsuspecting victims.

p.p.s. he's an asshole for having djbeemers sick ride on the nightmare page
