    This is what I've been up too

    Hey all! I hope everyone is doing well I've been quite busy since I lost my dear passat I miss it every day thats for sure. I check in here every now and then and see whats going on. I like the updated website software!

    For those who dont know/remember me. I was the guy with this controversial wag.





    Being a BMW Auto Tech, it kinda made sense to get a BMW. I picked up myself a 2003 e46 325 Sedan 5 speed with 75k on it........ Wagons are impossible to find in 5 speed.

    I dont have my mods done yet but Starting to get the essentials handled.


    - Aux. Input Install
    - E60 Short Throw Shifter and Rebuilt Linkage
    - Weighted ZHP M-Package Shift Knob
    - Intake
    - Rokkor Coilovers of course!! They ride soooooo good too. Even better than my passat.
    - Forged Beyern Bavaria's 18x10 et 20 all around with a 8mm spacer up front
    - 215/35/18 Achillies ATR Sports all around

    -Other than that its been Maintanence stuff like - Spark Plugs, Sea foam, oil change, thermostat, Final Stage Resistor.

    This is just the begining. I have plenty more plans for this vehicle. I'm having my fenders rolled and pulled this week, so more low Along with camber plates and rear adjustable lower control arms for more camber

    I have a build thread on e46fanatics so if Any of you guys are interested in checking it out, heres the link

    Project: Useless E46 - E46Fanatics

    Here are the Pics









































    Just wanted to share my new toy

    I'vd been watching a lot of progress of old friends on here and man, I love it! Everyone's cars are looking fantastic and I can defintley see Air ride is becoming more popular

    Take it Easy everyone!

    -Austin

    Thanks I appreciate it!

    Lol yup, I was spaming out pics to everyone. I gotta get my fenders rolled and pulled so I can get more of an aggressive stance!


    Thanks Everyone!! The wheels are a little different but its a new design from Beyern so I thought I'd rock them. Its soo nice having a independent rear suspension, it was such a pain having the rear torsion beam on my passat. lol

    The Jetta was more a temp car at the time I couldnt keep my hands off of it of course

    Interesting choice, looks like you will have a lot of updates in the future.

    Also, just my .02 but the updated LED taillights really clean up the look of the car in the back.

    I'm digging the Achillies for sure! they have been doing great! Stretched nicely and handle rain well. put about 7k on them and still got about 3mm of tread on the inside of the tire.. still damn near brand new on the outside. When the inside gets to about 1mm I'm going to switch the tires to the opposite sides to get double to life out of em.

    Some More pics I got myself a Canon EOS T3i... Freakin love this thing! The Pictures it takes are outstanding.
