As of 2 days ago, my beloved and ledgendary E46 is sold.

Here's her story...



Well. Here's the story about my E46.

It is my first car. I might get flamed for having a BMW as my first car, but it is a Steptronic, 325i, with 90k miles when i got it. It was a steal.

I was into cars when i got it, but once i got it, i joined forums, and everything changed.

Shiit went down with this car. I love this thing. I got her on July 28, 2007. And i have driven the **** outta her.

Less talk, more pics.



You will see a ton of stages of my car as she evolves, and i dont really want to write a writeup about every single step.

Gah. Photobucket fuucked up my order, so i guess i will add comments about every photo.


When i got her. :)luv:)







a few weeks later. Rogue IKON exhaust, smoked corners, smoked LED Tails, black grilles, etc






Christsmas came around, i got some 8000k Angel Eyes.



Then i got that Mtech2 front bumper. woot










My 4th autocross (on non sport, stock suspension) Look at that body roll!!!!













Then i started going very, very well in school, Junior year in high school, and made honor roll.

I was finally permitted to lower and put wheels on my car! Oh boy, i was so excited...

DDM coilovers. (eek...)


Made a trip up to LA to get these 19" Matte black Staggered CSL Reps from a fellow board member.

19x8.5 ET 40 - 235/35/19
19x9.5 ET 45 - 235/35/19 <-- Stretched a little


My first photoshoot of the whole new look.

and of course, the peer pressure of the SD (super slammed) crew led me to secretly lowering my car more and more everytime my parents were away..

i then purchased a pair 20mm spacers from another fellow board member. and man, i love em.


20mm in the rear. jeebus... poke.


with epic poke, comes epic rubbing from un-rolled fenders.




adjusting the camber in the fronts.





I then cracked one of my rears. and i only put the wheels on for photoshoots and meets and stuff.

Thus, i daily drove with my stock 16"s, powdercoated matte black 10% gloss.




some necessary canyon runs.



I got bored of the smoked, so i went to Ambers. hell yes. Had a little photoshoot after Breakfest in Balboa.








I then wrapped my interior trim in CF fabric. epic interior transformation.






I traded my smoked for clears with a bud.












Last shoot with the wheels and the roof rack, sold them shortly after.

And an epic autocross day.

Hella sideways.











Being so low, scraping so many times, and fuucking my bumper up so bad, it cracked on me somehow.

I also ripped the Angel Eyes out (bandwagon ftl.)
I slapped some 2500k Nokya bulbs in the DRLs, and had the DRLs enabled.

Hell yes.









So Brandon, you sold your 19" blackies, what now?

Style.

Fives.

17x8 OEM BBS Style 5.
ET20
205/40/17 Fuzion ZRi all around.
20mm in the back sometimes, making the offset ZERO. and pokin like a lil biiiiitch.
10mm for the fronts are on the way!
