Very clean car voodoo, I've never seen those rims on a E46. Nice. If they were 18's that would be nice.

Beautiful car Thomas (my name too, hehe). What part of NC are you from? All my family lives in High Point. I'm sure you'll enjoy your auto as much as I do mine!

Car is nice looking. Welcome to the 'fest!

Looks like there's a small dent over the gas door, I'm thinking that could easily be suctioned out (pulled out).

Isn't the BMW emblem supposed to be lined up with the M badge?

Ya, I know...I'm putting some miles on the new rubber before I get rid of them...I didn't pay for these anyway. That and I gotta find someone to buy 'em and find the wheels I want. They'll be off by September

A little dab of clear silicone caulk will sort that out... if it bugs ya, which it apparently doesn't.

Nice photo!
