I don't want to speak for Doug, but I'd want more involvement from my DD than a Tesla can provide. But I don't have to deal with bumper-to-bumper traffic every day...

Wow; what an update!

Great job with the pillar and headliner recover. Did you rewrap the A-pillars too? If so, were you able to get the material down into the "slot" where the screw cover goes?...

I have staggered Style 68s and love them. Styles 44, 71, 96, 119 and 137 will all fit your car with no modifications and look good as well.

Do you have a link to the FS ad? Specs on the wheels (specifically ET, or offset)? How much did you pay for them? Real 19" M3 wheels are worth some decent coin.

If they're actual M3 wheels (not reps with a higher offset), they won't fit. M3s have flared fenders for a reason.

Very nice writeup! Will keep this handy for the next 18-year-old who wanders in wanting to "slap a turbo" on his E46. :thumbsup:

That's the temp sensor for the heater windshield washer nozzles. It clips onto the underside of the passenger side fender liner, just behind the bumper.

Wonderful.

BTW Takata went bankrupt a couple of years ago b/c of the initial recall. Other companies are mopping up their mess.

The other factor to consider is that 300 hp will tear a '99-'01 E46's RACP post haste. And I'd do reinforcements even in the later models.

Only swapped.



Presumably he'd sell his E46 offset the cost of the Magnum, so that distorts the comparison somewhat.

It definitely sounds like you're leaning toward the Magnum. If you're prioritizing extra oomph, there aren't any cheap or easy solutions for your E46.

Personally, I think the Magnum is a crude,...
