Yesterday, I was at my local carwash getting my 323i washed when I noticed a fully loaded E46 99 Hamann 328i next to me getting washed. I went over and talked to the owner who happened to be "THE" Hamann rep. and had a nice long talk with him about his car and my car. He told me that this car was THE car seen in all the car magazines with the Hamann package. It is a titanium silver with black manual 328i. I believe it pictured at European Car, BMW Car and Bimmer magazines. His car lookded so awesome!!! I was somewhat jealous of this stunning E46! Although it was a little over the top with all the spoilers and other body kits, it was truely an awesome beast!
He (Hamann rep) is going to send me some information available regarding the Hamann products and upgrades available for the E46. If anyone is interested, send me your e-mail and I will send you all I have on the Hamann aftermarket parts for our E46's. I am sure I will get this stuff from him within a couple of days.
BTW, he stated the car's horsepower was 220 with the engine mods. He also told me that with the OBD II of our car, gaining significant horsepowers with Jim C or Dinan would be "wishful thinking". But then again, his car was modified to produce 220 horses, so I suppose it can be done.
