E46 Touring Build Widebody | Surprising the wife

It's gonna be the wifes birthday in a Month.
i'm gonna surprise her.
"Happy wife, happy life."




Down to it.
Picked up the E46 touring locally:
2000 323i
TIAG touring
160K miles
motor runs great, body had previous rear end damage,
and lots of small chit inside that needs TLC.

Previous owner fix'd the rear end damage but not well.
It's gonna get fixed at LTBMW, paint and body and everything
else modified.
it's confirm'd widebody this wagon.


Here's a list of what needs to be done:
Front R and L window regulator replacement
ST Coilovers
Cooling overhaul (water pump, thermostat, hoses, belts, etc.)
Hood latch cable replacement
clean carpet
wrap trim CF vinyl
Dynavin head unit
tint 35% all around, 70% front windshield
custom intake
remove the rear roller net blind

u can see the damage -

another Tiag E46 M3 Wagon in the
world - minus an S54 engine.
that'll be another day.

good looker franki, give it a nice set of wheels and more agressive fenders a la M3 and you'll be good to go...

oh and maybe an S54 wouldn't hurt; then again neither would an HPF stage 3 S54 , hahah

First wagon dragster, I'd love to see it.
