Rowen s BMW
E46  M3

Rowen, since he can remember has always been a BMW fan. You would have noticed this from the previous issue where his classic E30 Bella was featured.  Rowen found Mona when he was 21, she was completely stock at the time, Deep down he longed for the taste of that screaming M3 and knew he would accomplish his vision.


As stated in the previous feature, Rowen and his Dad run Coles Autobody in Cape Town. So you can imagine all the fun things you can achieve when having a fully functional panel shop at your fingertips.

The car has been through an array of colours ranging from Avus Blue Metallic to a shade of Dove Grey and now the latest colour being inspired by the all new BMW M4, Yas Marina Blue. Rowen is running a static setup of  BC Coilovers and the car is sitting tight on 18 inch Work Euroline SL wheels.

Performance wise, the M3 is tuned by GTS. Rowen created a custom cold air intake with a K&N flat pan filter and has a custom made rear exhaust box which gives it the perfect scream you could ever want from an E46 M3. What will be next for Rowen is undetermined but no matter what it is, it will be killer!
