Ricky Bobby will become famous soon enough
^^^Mike great work you are officially the first one to install these - Although many E46 guys love them -

Yes I agree half of the difference is due to the closer impedance to the factory 3ohm in your E46, but the Vifa is a much higher quality driver than original in general - its a great swap and besides a bit of dremel work on the housing almost a perfect fit!

The Founteks are much better suited to our OE 8ohm drivers on the E53 (front dash, rear midrange), but obviously you can step up to the 4ohm Vifa's too with no ill effects!

I'm sure Clockwork Mike will enjoy them in his E53 -
