AC Schnitzer BMW X-Road

BMW-Schnitzer X-Road

Presented in 2001 as a prototype, the AC Schnitzer
X-ROAD has been refined to series maturity and adapted for the new facelift models.
The result of this complex development work is a range which optimizes the BMW 3-series E46 in terms of individuality and application potential, and can be combined with many special accessories of the AC Schnitzer range for the BMW 3-series.
The starting point was the development of a suspension spring kit which raises the ride height by 30 mm in order to achieve the necessary "all-terrain ability".
To match the raised suspension, a wheel and tyre combination has also been developed. This consists of the AC Schnitzer alloy wheels Type III in size 8.5J x 17" offset 43 with all-terrain tyres in size 225/55 R 17.
The complete chassis and wheel conversion is available for the BMW 3-series touring and saloon (both in the all-wheel drive version).
In parallel, the bodywork has been modified. As a result, the AC Schnitzer X-ROAD is not only 30 mm higher than its standard brother but also 20 mm wider.
The X-ROAD aerodynamic range for the 3-series touring has been adapted technically and optically to this new application and consists of wing extensions all round, a front spoiler and a rear skirt with marked drive-under protection.
As we said, the AC Schnitzer X-ROAD range can be combined with many other special developments for the BMW 3-series E46.
For example, sports silencers made of V2A special steel with chromed tailpipe trim, and suspension components such as the aluminium racing strut brace are also available.
Last but not least there is an extensive interior range which contains aluminium and carbon-fibre trims, and also on request complete leather interiors. In addition, special navigation and Infotainment solutions complete the range for the interior.

I think you mean the E50 (?) that got lifted by Kleemann. Their site isn't working, so no pic...

Only one difference: the Quattro's are nice to see, this thing is just plain ugly...
