Very nicely done. Great job.
Thank you :thumbsup:

Just wondering why the crunch amp?
First I had installed the amplifier over the spare tire in the car boot. Similar to this image here: http://www.abload.de/img/dsc00371mwis.jpg.
I had to use a amplifier which fit well of its dimensions well there. In addition, he was at that time the best in terms of price / performance: http://www.testberichte.de/p/crunch-tests/gtx4800-testbericht.html
Sure, there are better ones. I 'm really happy with the performance and will not replace it.

Maybe you can show those preparation also for others.
Sure, no problem.

I bought the doorboards here: http://www.jehnert.de/en/produkt-kategorie/doorboards-soundsystems/bmw-en/3-series/e46-convertible-coupe-m3/
As you can see , there are 2 different versions on this website. If you want, you can order the panels without sound system.
I ordered it with sound system. I am pleased with the performance. Mostly Listen to Rock / Metal.

Here you can watch the installation instructions: http://www.jehnert.de/imageStorage/Web_EBAs/web_EBA_dt/46160_EBA_web.pdf (Unfortunately in German).
The assembly was not so hard . I used a Dremel . It worked very well with it.

Alright, won't argue a mans taste. Once again beautiful bimmer, very clean install. I actually have a RFT2D2 custom 12, with a cadence 7000z that I can't bring myself to even put in mine. Just the sub(no box) weighs 47.3 lbs.

No problem :). You have just asked why and I said because. But thanks for your opinion :thumbsup:.

I am glad that you guys find my car well :thumbsup:



Here is the link to the diffusers for the e46 from inside-performance: http://www.insideperformance.de/en/diffusoren/?p=1&f=10
And even here you can look at the installation instructions: http://www.insideperformance.de/images/produkte/auspuffanlagen/einbauanleitung-insideperformance_e46_m3-csl-look_4-rohr_auspuffanlage.pdf (unfortunately in German)



I'm also curious how it will look :hmm:
Thanks for the info.... $700 USD is too pricey for a diffuser for me. You are a baller! How about details on the splitters? where did you get those from?

:drool: perfect in every way.
I think the SES light and brake pad light would love to argue with u there...

I would suggest fixing those issues before spending thousands on mods.

I love the hood and the exhaust

Looks great

My pleasure.
I bought the splitters on ebay. The seller does not exist anymore unfortunately. But here you can get it yet. http://tuning-carlights.de/sk-challenge-bmw-tuning-teile-carbon-parts/BMW-3er-e46/BMW-e46-echt-CARBON-CSL-Style-Flaps-fuer-M-Sportpaket.html.
But I can not say anything about the matching accuracy. I have no idea whether it's from the same manufacturer.

The SES light and the brake light always light up when the ignition is on.
Engine and the brakes everything is OK.

SMG was a rare option for the 330. Very nice car!

I see that the pervious owner upgraded it to the mtech2 exterior and the blackcube interior trim amung other things that are from the ZHP package. Very nice!

My ZHP is about as clean as your car even with it having 155k on it, im looking forward to modifying mine in the upcoming months.

In order to remain faithful to my concept, I take the rims in black. I like the concave design.[/QUOTE]

Everything is fantastic! These rim would look killer!

Thanks a lot :thumbsup:

The previous owner has modified nothing . The car was 100 % original.
The mtech2 exterior and the blackcube interior trim belong to the 0338 M Sportpaket II.

Why must we use cheap head unites in these cars.. Get a dynavin or an eonon or something worth the work...:facepalm:
Do you think that my JVC AVX820 is cheap crap, or what??? :hmm:

This is awesome, congrats! How did you mount the splitters? I have the same, but having some issues with them, they don't fit perfectly. Any suggestions?
Thanks :)

can you explain why the grill on the "new" hood is wider and looks more like a facelift hood than in the original pics? Just curious to know.. and I didn't notice the door cards the first time I looked, those are pretty amazing, and do a nice job of looking like they were made to be there..

Thanks:thumbsup:
I can not give you a advice, unfortunately . I have attached the splitter only with 3 screws from the bottom. My splitters have fit well .

Because it is a facelift hood. I forgot the word "only" in one of my quotes.
But I mentioned it on the first page by the changes. Hope I could help you.
