Here’s How You Make Your BMW 3 Series Touring Sportier [29 Pics]

If you wanted more proof that you don’t need a flagship model in order to build a very special version of whichever car you happen to own, here it is.

This is a rather common BMW 320d Touring, which thanks to a set of kick-ass Vossen VFS1 wheels and a lowered ride height, looks completely uncommon.

The VFS1 series wheels have a very clean design and they seem to work on just about any type of car, including a sporty little family estate such as the 3 Series Touring.

The fact that this 320d runs just 184 PS and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) makes this all the more sweet. Sure, this could have been a 335d or a 335i or just a really top of the line station wagon (not necessarily from BMW), such as the E63 AMG S or the Audi RS6, but you don’t need a lot of muscle in order to get good looks.

Bottom line, this car is very likable. It can’t hit 100 km/h (62 mph) quicker than 7.6 seconds, but it sure separates itself from other 3 Series Touring models that don’t sit any closer to the road and that are wearing 17″ or 18″ wheels.

Sure, the 3 Series Touring, generally speaking, is a great car and a rather good looking one. But once you go all out and invest in some extra parts for the exterior, you will almost instantly stand out in a crowd.

The white is a great choice as well by the way. As is the blacked out grille.


  • Are you brave enough?

    320d, “sportier”.
    Why did I laughed?

    • Yo

      You’re obviously NOT brave enough.

      Dude, come on! You have no idea what you’re talking about. This is a BMW – THE ULTIMATE MACHINE IN THE WORLD!!!!1111

      And in the words of the author of this article: The fact that this 320d runs just 184 PS and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) makes this all the more sweet.

      And now, I’ll join you in the hysterical laughter.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Those wheels are just foolish.

    • Yo

      Why is it fooling? “Not what the manufacture intended?”

  • devonair

    I would shorten the overall design to make it more of a “5-door hot hatch” instead of a wagon.

  • eye.surgeon

    I’d say save the money spent on the pimp-my-ride wheels/suspension and put it towards the bigger diesel engine instead.

  • Sébastien

    Is it 21 or even 22″ ?
