BMW E46 Coupé is the most perfectly shaped car BMW ever made. The best of the E46 models are the 330Ci and of course the M3. The 6-in-line engine is the best ever made – the M3 version, the S54B32, a real work of art.

My 330Ci - really a love affair.
(Wheels later changed to Kreutzspeische 163 8½x19 front and rear)

However, there was a beauty tempting in the distance,  “The Car”, the E46 M3.

Tempting as Hell, but a new relation would mean the end of the old one – and this was hard, very hard indeed!

However - at last I pulled myself together and looked actively for the new love, "The Car". 

At last I found it - and now "The Car" will be mine


Tatemono is Japanese and means “building” “things” - ie. buildings.


Why the Japanese name and the Japanese pictures on this website?

The explanation is simple: I am fascinated by Japan, it’s culture, it’s buildings, it’s traditions and it’s people.
