Adrian from Kuils River has such a great interest in Air suspension that he started his own business. His 318i E46 Touring is a 2003 model and most people don’t like station wagons, but you have to admit that this particular station wagon is very sexy. Adrian’s had the car for two years and as you can see it has undergone some dramatic alterations.
It started with the 18-inch WCI narrow and wide wheels. 215/35/18 front and back but wider 9.5j wheels for the rear. The drop kit is a custom air ride kit Adrian built himself. The air suspension makes the ride more comfortable than any standard BMW suspension and BMW themselves offer air suspension on some of their more expensive models like the 7 Series and X5 as an optional extra.You manage the system yourself and you decide how high or low you want the car. Such a system starts at R25 000, but it depends on the client on what he or she wants the car to do. Various management systems are available and there are even automatic systems that detect road conditions and lift or drop the car depending on your speed.
Adrian installed a registration plate removal unit which allows him to take off the plates for shows and some showing off. Other than that, he just had the car wrapped in this matt orange at Wrapmaster in Thornton and the roof rack is a Thule duel bike rack. The engine is the stock standard two-litre 16 valve four cylinder found in all 318i models and the interior is also standard, except for the double din Sony head unit.
All Adrian has planned next is a new set of wheels and an M3 Bodykit. If you want to know more about Air suspension kits you can contact Adrian on Facebook. His page is called Low Abiding Citizen or you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
