Beautiful! I love it. The ZHP knob is awesome. I totally transforms most BMW shifters into something half-way decent.
Backstory: I had a emmkay 4 GLI vr6 which I loved and was (oddly) reliable, so I planned on driving it until it died. A friend came to visit from out of town, and we went to the exotic dealerships (Mclaren Philly, Algar Ferrari) and I fell hard for a car at Algar Ferrari. The price was right, the options and modifications were good, so I went for it.
The car has literally every option except an automatic that was offered in 2003. The previous owner (who happens to have placed 2nd in GT class at Barber Motorsports Park a few weeks back) installed the following-
ZHP front bumper
ZHP shift knob
Short shift kit
M3 steering wheel
as well as some other little things
So im pretty psyched about it to say the least .
Big shoutout to Tony Kasser from Algar Ferrari- seriously if you can afford anything in the F-car range see him, he's the nicest, most genuine dude I have ever encountered in the buisness. He treated me as if I was buying a 599 and set up a crazy financing deal that I couldn't pass up.
Also quick shoutout to Frank Muzo over at BMW Main Line for sticking to the deal that Tony and I discussed.
That's really cool. The ZHP bumper and CSL wheels really make that look mean.
Very nice choice!
Was at Carmax a few weeks back and spotted one of these E46 wagons, I think it was an '01, 82K miles they were asking $7K for it. Almost took it out for a drive but was turned off by serious dog smell and woven hair in the carpets. Op nice find though, not going to lie I'm a little scared to own any E46 though, everyone I know that has owned one has a horror story about some repairs.
I wouldn't worry. If it give you problems down the road, you can offload it pretty easily, and for pretty good money, as long as you maintain it (mechanically) and keep it at least looking as good as it does now. You're not going to lose much if that's the case. Enjoy it. Go do some track days.
Can't remember what brand the wheels are but they are supposed to be the best reps you can get. The dealer is an E46fanatics member
My first mod is probably going to be a DICE mediabridge. The car is wired for bluetooth but doesn't have the functionality so I'm hoping that the mediabridge can give me that capability as well as functional ipod integration with the OEM Nav unit. If so, its well worth the $240. Then I'll move on to slotted front rotors and stainless lines. Your car is certainly inspiring though!
I am selling a lot of different parts, please identify what you are pming about
