Arrow [332ti: S54 Hellrot Slicktop]

Recently acquired a slicktop 332ti from a good friend and I'm slowly in the process of taking it to the next level. I'll dive into the 5 inch record book as soon as I get my hands on it

Current mods:
  • S54; Cold air intake, SPAL electric fan, Magnaflow exhaust,
  • 6 speed; M5 clutch, Z3 LSD with finned diff cover, SSK
  • AC Schnitzer rear aero
  • BC coilovers, camber plates, BBS RK, sway bars
  • Cross-drilled brakes, not sure what brand
  • Angel eyes, euro taillights
  • Lambda Speec Racing door panels

Thins to do:
1. Swap interior to black
2. Move battery further back
3. Sport rear bumper
4. Dual tip muffler
5. Graphics

Some quick pictures:






Here's what I've done so far:

So jealous of your clean projects! They all look well done and clean.

What are your ideas for the brakes to keep the s54 under control? Also whats the rear diff ratio?

How is the comparison between the s54 vs s52 and m52?? Really interested in your comparison on power delivery and feel within the 318ti.

Sounds fast. Lotta power packed in that small thing, which can't be a bad thing.

Though I'm most excited about seeing #5 on your to do list. Matter of fact it'd be nice if you'd post more pic's of your current graphics work as well, or have I missed that?

It's like riding a wild horse right now, begging for open road. I'm unsure of the graphics I'd like to do, but I've always been fond of the AC Schnitzer design here:

Default AC FTW!

Dig that AC look! Always loved their wheels. And don't tease me man! I would honestly buy that car just for the S54 but if you ever do look to sell it, Id be very interested in it. My sport is currently in need of a lot of TLC, Everyone tells me to just buy a new car. But I love my Ti !!

Right! I would love a set of their wheels. I think I may go with my RS-IIs or Fikse for this one initially with the rubber

I'll keep you posted on this car's progression
