Oh my, a new member with a new e92? Yup

I owned my E46 325ci for about 6 years

i did everything you could think of someone would want to do, dropped it, new body kit, rims, exhaust, chipped, intake and a whole lot more.

The car never gave me any issues except the AC condenser going bad, everything else was just wear and tear.

BUT im at a new stage in my life, i bought the e46 when i was in the middle of college, now im out, and im making more money, and I told myself i would buy a home before I bought myself a new car....

So I did, at 26 i bought my first home, the car mod bug had to disappear for a little while, instead of shadow trim, LED lights and diffusers, I was buying things to hang flat screens, marble counter tops and picking paint colors for my laundry room.

Now I'm 28, and i felt the time had come to slip into something a little more adult but not losing what made me smile for the last 6 years.

so.... without further ado

Pics of the e46:

when i bought her



what i turned her into








NOW for the new replacement... my new E92:

Just some quick shots with my iphone










Most of everything that i did to the e46 besides a drop and power mods was to make it look like a tie in between a ZHP and an M3, so when i bought the e92 i thought i would just skip the modding i would have done anyway and just buy it the way i want it, so i got this baby fully loaded with every feature available, short of a twin turbo engine, i know i know, but the price difference between the two was nuts and i got this puppy at a good price and im happy with it.

thanks for looking!

i sold it to a local enthusiast who knew what he was buying, trading it in i would have lost money and felt horrible for it, still kinda sad when i think about the fact that its gone.
