Makeovers aren’t just for girls. While BMW does choose their colors based on hues of women’s eyeshadow (whether this is urban legend or not is up for debate), giving your E46 a little “makeup”, much like it does for a woman, can take years off its appearance. This E46 came in to have its look freshened with a set of clean Red/Clear DEPO E46 tail lights and DEPO Corner Lenses to give the lighting a “new” look, which visually takes a lot of “age” off the look of the car.
After changing out the tail lights, license lamp lights and corners, a new stance was in order. A H&R Cup Spring & Shock/Strut Kit was just what the doctor ordered with a mild 1.5″ drop up front and a 1.2″ drop in the rear. It’s no good to mount new shocks on worn mounts, so a set of Rogue Engineering Shock Mounts were fitted to keep the shocks firmly secured.
A little freshening of the brakes was done as well with a set of Centric performance brake rotors for OEM+ level stopping power.
