  1. Appreciate it. I think just going OEM+/restoration for this car. I'd love to see it on CSL style wheels but @Rekpoint says Apex or nothin. CF airbox is definitely in this cars future, unsure if I can afford the CSL one but we'll see 😁
  2. Thank you! Happy with it for the low cost anyways
  3. Really wanted to salvage the original steering wheel since the leather is in decent shape. Tried my best to "refresh" the stitching with some felt fabric markers. Probably didn't match color exactly but I think it came out alright, here's a before/after Edit: I did wipe off the excess dye from the leather with alcohol afterwards
  4. Replaced the tired original knob. Since I already had factory illumination I figured I can't remove that, so I went with an OEM ZHP illuminated 6 speed knob. Also, these things seem to be getting crazy hard to find, thanks @Rekpoint!!
  5. Coming from the turbo N55, it's so much different. Throttle response is WAY better than I imagined, induction noise is beautiful, exhaust is meh (not a huge fan of the tingy sound stock), steering is incredible and my favorite part of the car. Coming from electronic steering where it sometimes gets floaty and feels like you're not in control, this is a HUGE upgrade. Overall I love it, and it'll likely replace my 335i come spring
  6. Official start to my E46 M3 build thread! This is joining my garage along with my 2015 335i M Sport and my 2008 328i daily. Progress may be slow over the winter months, but progress is better than none at all! Car is completely bone stock minus a brake rotor upgrade and some Bilstein shocks. It also came with a mountain of maintenance receipts to sift through, but the most important are vanos and rod bearing replacements. Sadly didn't come with subframe reinforcement so that will likely be the first order of business come spring. It was inspected and in great shape, but we all know how important it is to do preventatively on these cars. Here's a quick spec list and a nice roller photo I got on the drive home! WBSBL93492JR17883 2002 BMW M3 Steel Gray on Black Nappa 6 Speed Manual Coupe 135,210 miles
  7. 2001 BMW 330XI WBAAV53491JS96095 180,025 Miles Silver Gray Metallic / Black Leather Clean Title Originally bought toward the end of 2018 and planned to use as a daily driver to keep the miles off my 335i. I’ve since picked up an E92 to replace this as my daily and want to downsize the amount of cars sitting in my driveway. Car is in decent condition given the age and miles. It’s the automatic AWD model, so it’s great in the snow. Actually had a day a year ago where the snow was up to the hood and it kept going. It has heated seats, Harmon Kardon sound, and the bi-xenon headlights. Miles won’t change much as the car just stays parked in the driveway and isn’t being used at the moment. It’s been pretty well cared for during my ownership. I have a decent stack of maintenance records totaling over $2500 that have been done in the last 5-7k miles. Recent maintenance: Radiator Valve cover gasket, Crank case ventilation hose, Rear control arm bushings, Front sway bar end links, Pressure hose, Spark plugs, Emissions hose, Passenger headlight bi-xenon bulb, Tail light wiring assembly, Front pads & rotors, Front passenger axle, Oil & filter change and set of 4 used tires. Obviously given the age and price range the car isn’t perfect. Below is everything wrong with the car to my knowledge. Known Issues: Surface rust starting in common areas (under license plate, top of rear fenders), Air conditioning doesn't blow cold, Front windows slow/weak to rise, Tie rods are starting to get slightly loose, Sun roof inner shade isn’t fully secure and rattles a bit, Driver door lock sticks sometimes, and License plate lights are corroded and do not function.

  8. Ayy I recognize that 135 any day. Love your build, always watching your YT vids. Anyways I appreciate the compliment, right back at ya, that new bumper is so sick!
  9. I’m always trying to find some new local friends, hit me up any time I’d love to do some car photos or something!
  10. Agreed the ZF-8 is INCREDIBLE! I absolutely love it. But kinda the same boat I’m in, holding off on anything crazy while it’s under warranty. Think my next thing is going to be those LCI tail lights. Can’t wait to see what you do with it though & congrats on the beautiful whip!
  11. Man this is gorgeous! I’m jealous you get the B58 and the LCI lights. Any modification plans right off the bat?
  12. Not a big golfer, unless you consider frisbee golfing lol. But I absolutely love the red, flew all the way to NC for it haha. And thanks for the welcome!
  13. Some think it’s a bit boring but I love the white with black accent look. Thank you!
  14. Thanks man! Sad I just am finding out about this site now lol
