We’ve featured cars all over the world, but never anything from Romania. This slammed E46 belongs to a 23 year old firefighter by the name of Tupeu Marius whom we’re sure will make many other Romanians very proud after today. Ever since he fell in love with the “stance & fitment” scene about a year and half ago, Marius has been at work building an E46 that stood out from all others in Romania. The results are awesome. In fact, we love it so much that we are very honored and excited to show off Marius’ hard work with you. The style is bit different from the stuff we see here stateside in our scene (like the shaved door handles), but it works!

Most of the dirty work (welding handles, cutting up the fenders, fiberglass work, etc) was done by Marius himself though his crew TeamCSR and UFO Customs Workshop helped with other stuff as well. His girlfriend also helped by polishing all the lips of those sexy Borbets. They specs of the Borbets are 17x 8.5 with -2 offset up front and 17×10 with +3 offset in the back. Front tires are 204/40/17 and rears are 215/45/17. Marius added a touch of camber all around, widened the fenders 2″ in the back & 1″ in the front and slammed the car on a custom made bag setup with uvair bags, viair 380c compressor, and air lift gauges.

The exterior features a ton of changes. An all custom made coupe M-tech 2 front bumper, custom M3 CSL back bumper, custom csl trunk, and retrofitted hood with M3 bulge that was extended above headlights. There are also a few not so obvious things like the painted hood trim with black grille, a custom chopped side mirrors and custom side skirts that sit just mm’s off the ground. Let’s not forget the shaved side blinkers and moldings..

As always we’ll include the full spec list for you on the bottom of this article. We’ll let the pictures do rest of the talking for us but not without giving a huge shout out to all of our Romanian fans of course. If you’ve got an awesome slammed ride make sure you shoot us an email with some photos!

    It’s hard to stance a car in this f***ing country because of the roads but he did it very well. Good job and I hope I’ll see more cars from my country here.

    I have to agree with Lemur. Great looking car, but the wheels aren’t my thing. On another note: That thing is low as hell! Wow!

    try to stance a E46 with 19″, with 17″ is very easy and these Borbet are not for E46, maybe for E30. So, for me this is FAIL
