Now this is beyond the conventional – certainly in the UK. The BMW 330ci is a good motorway car, perfectly capable on the twisties – but so often forgotten about and overshadowed by the E46 LSD’ed M3. But just because it’s not an M3 doesn’t mean it doesn’t have the right ingredients – RWD, a manual gearbox, and a personality. This build has been in the Drift Car Build Projects section – and it popped up almost over night under the radar – and it’s awesome!
It seems to have all started with this, a standard car – which was to be crashed by owner Matt’s friend. A blessing in disguise?
The car was then given the strip down treatment – and a serious cage was put in place.
The car was then sprayed in classic Germanic silver paint – got to keep the heritage right?
And the interior was re-assembled, bearing a distinct look and feel of a Touring car in my humble opinion!
The outside was repaired, and finished off with a set of Rota Torques which suited the simple lines of the E46 nicely.
And then, just like that – it went out and did skids. 😀
Personally – I love it. It’s going to be reliable once the suspension niggles are sorted, it’s smart – and definitely capable – you can read the more detailed build thread here!
