I'm a purist myself. Only "mod" I ever truly considered was a Supersprint exhaust. You and @kylanjohnson both have beautiful E46'sAs much as I like the way my e46 is "lightly" mod'd, I sometimes feel it would've been nice to have kept it original, now especially because the M-Tech I (pre-ZHP, aka M-Tech II, sport sedan) is a rare sight to see anymore. I did a quick Google search and it was actually difficult to find a photo of an M-Tech I . . . even the one shown has non-original blacked-out kidneys/side window trim, and clear Euro lighting. Otherwise, it's an example of how my car looked from the dealer. I believe @kylanjohnson has an LCI version of the M-Tech I, which continued along side of the ZHP.
