E46 by Sitbelow – quite an extraordinary project, a dream in metal. Diffuser, bashbar, widebody, frame and fierce wide wheels - It's all about it.

Owner: Dmitry Kamnev

Russian Version

                 At the time of the photoshoot (February 2018) the project is in 2017 specification. Dmitry has got a lot of plans for 2k18 season, so now car has changed color and wheels.   


All of us know that feeling, when something goes deep into our souls, and we starting to live that. E46…That was already Dmitry’s dream car. So, he already knew that his car will be together with him by something more than everyday driving.

This BMW – full extension of Dmitry, his feelings, emotions, dreams, goals. E46 = He. At greater or lesser extent, his character can be seen in this car. And this is great.

This is not only stance project for events. Dmitry doesn’t make this project for somebody, to pass the season and put the car back to garage. In fact, forget about, plunged into the routine.


«I disagree with the notion that Stance-project is necessarily expensive car, rims, suspension – built and drive to events to pick up rewards. No. That’s all otherwise for me. I’m put my heart and soul to it, think about what I can do to make it better. Sawing all inch by inch to drop the car lower, creating extraordinary solutions, choosing the car color. I'm not doing it the way everyone else does. And most importantly – I just making car for myself.»

E46 has undergone many changes since its purchase. Dmitry changed 3 rear bumpers – stock, MTEX-2, and from M3 coupe. That all didn’t fit the concept. Dmitry decided to remove the rear bumper and installed bash bar. Later he contacted with Kraero, and they made this mad rear diffuser. But this decision is already mad by itself, but it’s cool and extraordinary.

At Dmitry’s Sitbelow works he made metal widebody fenders. Now the body lines perfectly match the concept. Due to this, rims RH XD fit best with its mad lips of 3,75’’ at the front and 5,75’’ at the rear, and width of 11,5’’ at the front and 12,5’’ at the rear. Brakes are full stock from 330.

Dmitry made his project not only for events, he also made it for fun, burnout and drifting. Probably, this smell of burnt clutch is already an integral part of the project. LOL.

The interior has also undergone some changes. Dmirty Installed OMP    steering and bucket seats. Full safety cage is another feature of this project.

«In conclusion, I want to say – guys, don’t be afraid of changes, listen to yourself and only those who are really with you on the same wave, who also turn on the car, who are really ready to help you realize your dream, make the quality project for yourself, not for others. Feel free to reject all envious wich saying that You will not succeed. Be true to yourself and your dream!»
