Wow that looks great, I would go for a matte black paintjob, those wheels look great, but would be more practical with a bit more rubber, maybe 45?

I dont know if you plan to get a brembo big brake kit, those are pricey.

Overall looks really good buddy.

here is something I ran across, its an E36 to E46 conversion. if you need help in sourcing parts I know several people here. I dont know if its worth the time/money, just a thought.

E36-E46 Conversion

Off Topic: Hey Arush, ever considered opening an outlet in Mumbai as well
Id be one of your 1st customers. In case you do, do let me know.

P.S. - Abix, thats what i said before, that blue would be too loud, so try a dark mettalic blue, it would look hot. Anyways, just suggestions, dark mettalic grey would look good too but not hot, it would give the car a more understated look, if thats what your looking for. But it will definately look good.

I guess after a hot and loud looking Cedia, your looking for some understated class.
A welcome change if you will Cheers

I believe Arush can courier a kit to Mumbai for you and has done that with Kartik's Lancer as well.

xehaust, you got it right! after my loud cedia i am looking for something a little understated. Blue was one of my top options but would be too loud. I think moreso than the paintjob, its the performance that im lookin for which i think should make the car pretty sweet! Thanks

True, When you will fly pass someone, he will hardly get time to check out your paintjob!!! The only thing he will be wondering is that what the HELL just went by, And he will be scratching his head all across!!!

Back off Xehaust mate!! :P Chennai has already booked him for the next Autopsyche outlet .... Kidding!!

Abix my man, Black is a good but BLUE makes a statement mate. The 5 spoke dish wheels are nice but the BBS style gives it a muscular look and better outlook. BLUE BLUE please, though I support you on Black as well

Blue looks good - as well as the dark grey metallic. Black is of course an evergreen. I think the rims you choose would effect the choice of paint colour.

So finalize the rims first & then choose the colour keeping in mind the overall look of the car !!!


Cheers
