What happens when you grow up around your dad that loves cars? Well you grow up loving cars and have a great taste when building one. Thats just exactly what Juliana did. She bought this clean EG hatch 2 years ago. It was bone stock. First order of business, get that thing down on the ground. So out goes the stock suspension and in goes a full coil over set. Well she can't roll around on a slammed car and not have rims. So she slapped on a set of Enkeis 92s. Then once the stance is set, she focused on the little things. Such as Password JDM duck bill, JDM fog lights and control arms. She gutted the interior for light weight, not that EGs are heavy, but lighter the better. As for power plant she decided to swap in a European H22 TypeR. Cause it aint a tight car if it don't have a Type R. Keeping the motor at bay is a set of HASport mount kit, Axles. Her father raised her well. When she wants to do something, she do it right. She said she is not finish with the car. She wants to build it and make it everything she could dream of. Well I say she is on the right pace and Juliana and her car are going places. Keep it up.
If BMW would have made the E46 M3 in a sedan platform, I would have probably looked this good. But too bad they didn't. But that did not stop JeppeJ from making his own E46 M3 Sedan. All it took was a E46 sedan and a very clean example of E46 M3 Coupe. The project took over a year to perform, but He did all the mechanical work himself. In the end he ended up with this very clean M3 sedan. what a pride and joy.
