The September E46 of the Month contest is live. Please read carefully below.

THIS MONTH'S THEME: Interiors! Show off how you've customized the inside of your E46. Thanks to @Hisdem for this month's theme.
  • The last week of each month, a poll will be added to the thread with all the entries and you will have 7 days (or 5, depending on how quick I am to get the poll up and how well the thread is moving) to cast your vote.
  • You must own the submitted ride.
  • I would strongly suggest submitting pics with no people in it (dogs are fine) or at the least, crop them out of it.
  • Feel free to give a little backstory on your ride. Whether that be the modifications it has, how you came to own it, or just a fun story. Don't be afraid to share your ride's story.
  • If you have won in a previous month, you can no longer enter for the rest of the year. However, if you have a second car that meets the above criteria, you can enter that.
The winner at the end of the month will win a free 1 Year Premium Membership for the forum and a custom flair under their username. If the winner is already a premium member, their subscription will be extended an additional year.

Winners will be featured on the sites gallery, found here.

Congrats to August's Ride of the Month winner, @Hisdem!

My interior looks still pretty much the same as in this old picture.

Mods (shown in picture):
  • EAS Silver CF trim
  • LED interior lighting
  • OEM BMW Perforated ///M steering wheel
  • OEM BMW ZHP knob
  • Pedal Haus aluminum pedals. Black w/custom heel extension
  • Pedal Haus Clutch stop
Since that picture was taken. I now have black pillars and have headliner with no moonroof (cause CF roof).

Need some choices to vote for here.
My interior is pretty stock. I have been switching the tired, tattered , brushed aluminum trim for the wooden ones. Before they go in, they receive a sanding and a coat of matte lacquer. So much mellower (I'm old).
Made the SMG look like a cross between a manual (boot) and an automatic (knob). This precipitated moving the SMG button under cover. There will be haters for that mod. If you don't like it, enter your interior. We need more choices to vote for.

not too much modified here, but I got this 2003 325i touring in July. So far, I embraced the wood grain rather than vinyl’ing over it, and I had a 5-speed getrag swapped in with a 3.38 rear diff. I had done a tall Delrin shift knob with the e60 short shifter mod, but I swapped the delrin for a zhp knob. The zhp is just too comfortable.

Look too closely, and my vert and a spare m54b25 in the garage, lol… also a donor car interior for lulz

Sure Ill throw in my fairly standard interior. Mods include:
  • fitted an avin avant 4 as the sat nav screen had some dead pixels
  • Rogue Engineering short shift kit
  • f10 m5 gear knob
  • Bavsound speaker upgrade
  • retrimmed steering wheel
  • genuine carbon fibre wrapped trim

I have plans to remove the front seats and refurb them over winter

I guess this was not a popular theme lol
This is about as popular as the rest of the ROTM contests. 5 choices = not bad.
How about some more voters, people!

Congrats to @sillieidiot, you are our September E46 of the Month!

October thread will go up on Monday. Also, if anyone is interested in taking ROTM over for the site (with me helping out), I would not say no. My workload is increasing lately and I'm not able to give these contests the love they deserve. If theres no interest, I have no problem continuing on solo.
