Thread: New ZHP Owner - Akron OH

  1. #1

    New ZHP Owner - Akron OH

    Just wanted to introduce myself since I've already learned a lot from this site. I bought a 2005 Silver-grey over gray 6-speed sedan this summer. It has 135,000 miles and has had many of the common issues addressed already (VANOs, DISA valve, etc).

    I just replaced the front control arms, including the rear bushings, and cannot believe how much that improved the steering and front end stability. The rear bushings were definitely shot.

    Still working on figuring out how to post photos from Google Photos.

    Welcome, sir. SG is a beautiful color. I save the pics on my laptop and post them using the "Insert image" icon.

    Unfortunately it didn't come with the style 135 wheels. I've got a set of 400m wheels I might try to see if I like them. I've seen a couple different e46's with the 400m wheels and I think they look decent.

    Welcome, there are so many options for wheels. I'm sure you'll find something you like.

    Dude those wheels look great! I mean I don't like the gunmetal color myself but those are a great fit for the car and I'm sure a lot lighter than any OE wheel you'll find.
