    No, I plan to keep it for a while, not sure how long. I have thought of selling it b/c I could make a few g's off of it. Right now I am sitting around 7k total price for everything. It could have been much less with a cheaper hood, bumper, headlights.

    Great car. Was it in an accident? Of is this stuff just to change the look?
    I bought it as a salvage vehicle. The front rail tips were bent to the right a little (thats what I am straightening in the first pic). I also had to replace the radiator, a/c condensor, hood, bumper, fender, etc... b/c they were damaged.

    started a topic the e46 in progress

    the e46 in progress

    Hopefully I can finish it this week. The side bumper brackets were off(broken) in the pics and I need to do some adjusting to line everything up good, but this is how it stands right now.













    all new cars suck, its junk, hate it, e30 is better, not built to last, etc....
