It took me a while, but I finally got around to taking some decent shots of my girl. I purchased this car bone-stock in March 2011: flew into Newark from Detroit and drove her straight home without issue. The car is in fantastic shape, thanks to the meticulous nature of the previous owner and his aversion to snow, and I plan on putting her away from Dec. 1 until next spring.

As you can see, the mods aren't anything crazy. I think the e46 body style looks fantastic as is, so I kept a nice OEM + look. I have always loved classic Alpina styling, and was lucky enough to find an authentic lip at a reasonable price. I think it adds some character and is more unique to the model than an M-Tech II or M3 front bumper.

Thanks guys, I'm really happy with how the car has turned out thus far.

I figured the number 1 comment would be about the ride height haha. It's on stock sport suspension currently. I might drop it a bit come spring time, but nothing crazy. I already scrape the lip on most driveways and would probably cry if I busted it. You're right though, some sort of drop should probably be on the cards.

Haha you got it, #1 on the list. Don't get your hopes up though!

Get some Alpina (genuine) wheels for it...
Haha I'm not that much of a baller. The lip was $$ enough.

I would paint the whole bumper whites are a little off. Love the look though
Yeah, the new one is a little brighter. It bothered me at first but I'm used to it now. I imagine it will fade into it a little bit though.

Dude Im in love :luv:
thanks :thumbsup:

:excited: omg love that lip!!

Eh, I'm sure you could find a used set go for a little more than what you paid for the CSLs, just have to hunt them down... 18" OEM Style 32s would be super sick on your car too :thumbup:
