Hi, I'm new, wanna say great forums, nice people and gorgeous cars on the site. I just bought my first E46, 02 330i sport and in a month I will do M3 flares on all four corners but first I need to get all the info that I can get. Now dont tell me its hard, not worth money, get a real m3 blah blah blah. I'm actually do everything myself as I have body work experience. Well, here is my list so far, if you have better ideas/suggestion or even pictures, just post it.
1- M3 front fenders,
How am I gonna make it fit? cut out the flare and side grill slot, weld it to the facelift fender, shave side marker on facelift fender, cut new hole for M3 side marker.
2- Use oem M3 front bumper, on ebay ocasionally.
3- Get OEM m3 hood, cut out the blister(?) on the hood and weld it to facelift hood? or go aftermarket? is an there aftermarket hood for facelift?
3- Rear flares, this is the expensive parts, I already look up for it, and it cost almost 500 for the converitble 1/4. Is there another way for this? all I really need is the wheel arch. The inner fender, I can custom make it to fit m3 flares.
4-Rear bumper, Ebay again.
5- dual exhaust, I can make this, without cutting anything. Prolly get CSL diffuser so I can stick the tips out a little more and gain some room for routing piping.

This cost me about $3000 in parts, give or take some. Body work and painting is pretty much free except for materials.
another thing is where to get the cheapest OEM part?
thanks in advance for any inputs.

Here is one picture of the technik car I will post more later they are on my other computer. Hope it helps. I am also going after this look after I either get a ESS TS or go an S54 swap.

does anybody know how they made their cars like that? only flaw is that they used the facelifted headlights. doesn't look bad, but the e46 m3 had pre-facelift style headlights.
