progress on my newly purchased imola 330ci (will keep updating)

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd add a few picsnof the new car..

Bought it two weeks ago and extremely pleased.

The previous owner was a detailer so its been keept nice (bar the dreaded lacquer peel on the front bumper)

Anyway as she stud the day I picked her up.

I then decided on some style 32's and jom coilovers..

Freshly refurbed wheels and new nankangs running some stretch...

And then fitted with coilovers will drop the rear a little more and may raise the front a tad as it catches on the ridiculous amount of speed bumps we have here..

Not the best pictures but you get the idea for now.

Future plans are drop the back..

Double din/navand general upgrade of the sound system

Refurb the interior carbon

Front end repaint to sort the lacquer peel and then a nice exhaust of some sort.

Perfect work dude, you're the second person i have seen now with a coupe running the 32's think it's swayed me a little than what i had on the old coupe!

Paddy, you're touring would look good with these. Although not black, maybe gun-metal or similar? I think that 32s don't look right in black!

Very nice mate, 32's never fail to impress. What size tyres you running?

Thanks for the comments guys..

Tyre wise I'm running NS20's

215/40/18 rear

205/40/18 up front.

The ride is actually really good too..

I know you can go lower with a 35 tyre but i was worried it might effect the drive and she's low enough.

Good choice, i would of gone for the 35 because I like less tyre to see. You had to roll the arches?

I'm sure I saw this advertised for sale, I thought about going to see it but purchased a different option.

Looks good though and i must say I love the 32s!

That is pukka Jay what drop and tyres did u run there mate.

that was my first attemmpt at style 32's on an e46 mate.

I ran (on that car) Tuning art coilovers, max standard camber on the rear, had the arches rolled and 215/40 all round. THe fronts were too fat though , so like yourself i ended up with the perfect combo on my topaz blue coupe, 205/40 Nankangs on the front & 215/40 falken rears but instead of rolling the arch i just ground the f**ker off that time :lol:
