Well this is our first feature (“You don’t say”, right?).
Everybody knows Sunday it’s that day of the week to stay home thinking the next day is monday. We decided to pick up some beers and chill with our friend, and the owner of this car, Joel, while photographing and filming it. It was a good, cool Sunday.
Joel owns this E46 Compact 318td since the beginning of 2009. As soon as he bought it, the mods started. Even though most of the mods as discreet and OEM+, we can say it has a nice “goodie” list, from the engine to the aesthetics.
The 115hp the car came with, weren’t enough for Joel, so he changed the injectors to the 320d version and replaced the small intercoller to a larger FMIC and to complete the engine mods tuned the ECU, and the result was 200hp and 450nm.
To keep the car closer to the ground Joel installed Eibach Pro-Street coilovers and the latest wheel choice where the BBS LM Replicas 8.5J+9.5J with 225/40 R18 tires. With 200hp the stock brakes weren’t doing it’s business and Joel trade them for a 330d brake disk and calipers.
The inside rear view mirror it’s from the E92 M3 and the one’s outside the car are from the M5.
The next plans for Joel and it’s BMW are a set of 19″ BMW X5 wheels and lower the car.
We wanna thank Joel for the oportunity to shoot and feature his car. We sincerely hope you all like this first feature, and continue to follow our Website and Facebook.
