I have been a long time car guy and have recently added a 2004 E46 M3 to the stable. Something about the E46 chassis just feels right. It shares a garage with an 1989 325i (Manual) and I used to own a 2007 335i (Manual) until recently.
Some changes since purchasing the car are:
Modbargains grille black out package with custom S54 emblems on the side. (Fits like factory)
SMG to Manual conversion performed by EuroMpire in NC.
Rear subframe reinforcement and full Polyflex bushing upgrade for the rear done by EuroMpire in NC.
New muffler from TopGear in the UK. Sounds perfect for what I was trying to accomplish. I may weld in a resonator in the section 1, or I might leave it as is.
Some changes/upgrades I plan to do:
APEX ARC-8 Wheels
Vanos with upgraded hub.
Thanks for all the resources to help in making the purchase. See you on the forum,
This is my first BMW and I am absolutely in love with the E46 chassis. If I won the lottery I'd do make this car brand new, and maybe stuff an supercharged M3 on it right away with other needed upgrades!
