Brads E46 M3

That wheel centre cap being misaligned against the ///M badge on the wheel makes me twitch.

Otherwise, very very nice (y)

I was thinking that the interiors haven't changed that much at all (tech aside) from yours to mine...then recently a friend sent me pictures of a mint E28 M56 and I reaslised that nothing much has changed since way back then. even the pedals, from the E28, to your E46, and my 1 series are identical the whole way through. I guess they got it right first time around.

Haha there not actually my new centres as I haven’t got round to putting them on. But don’t worry they’ll all be lined up as that is one of the things that also really bugs me as I can notice it from a mile off.

Yeah there not that different obviously with much better tech, but I do get what your saying. But why change something that works? I still think this has a great interior. Doesn’t look dated, and is genuinely a nice place to be.

I love it, but was wondering what you think to lowering it a touch at the back or getting a bit of camber on the go?

Thing is I knew because of the eibach springs the front tend to sit lower than the rear. Which is noticeable. I do like these springs, however I would prefer to have coil overs which I think is the plan as otherwise the shocks are going to need replacing. So I think the plan for the future is some coil overs.

I'll have my Bilstein clubsports for sale in the next few weeks. Cost £3900 new, will be after about £1500 if you're interested?
Very pliable for road use when dialed down!

So I’ve been doing a few bits since my new parts from bmw arrived. Mainly things that will never be seen. But wanted to get them tidied up for myself.

Fitted the new exhaust mount/holders. Fitted the underside panels that I’d cleaned up, as well as the new v brace. Gave the underside a snow foam and cleaned a few bits up. By no means perfect but as good as I’d like without going silly.

Still got a few bits I’d like to do. So will be a few more updates soon.

Thanks.

Also still have the front undertray to fit. But need to get new bolts as it’s never had one fitted, and debating whether to fit the purple tag steering rack I’ve had in the shed for over a year, but need to ensure it’s fully working is there anyway to check that apart from putting it on and driving.

The stacks do sound great. Just a shame you loose so much performance.
Yeah they really do sound great. My plan at some point is to either remove them and fit original air box or my preferred go for a Csl box when one comes up for sale.
