Hi all, Today I am going to share my BMW E46 M3 project/long term build. I have had the car now for over a year buying the vehicle about 300 miles away from where I live on the internet. The car on the advert sounded like the right car, high spec, low mileage, low owners, not to bad in price range, lots of history and the thing I was looking for also was a NON sunroof model. I was looking for a long time for a manual one, but as everyone knows the price difference from a SMG to a manual one, I worked out if push comes to shove and the box decides to go bang then I will convert it myself to a manual and save myself a Lot of money. So the car, since owning it Its been up and down with it, I knew from the start the car is a 15 year old car which it doesn't bother me at all as I have wanted a M3 since I was 18. I've had a lot of E46 since 18 and I have worked on countless E46's in the past with my work, so fixing it when it did go wrong wasn't to much to worry about. Its been in my garage for the past 7 months and with the good weather coming in I have recently spent a lot of money on it. I've fully re-furbished the complete front end replacing a lot of components and replacing a lot of fixings - Pictures will show you this. This is just a couple things I have done to the car. Miester GT1 coilovers with reinforcement plates all round New front brake Calipers, Genuine Front brake pads and discs, New drop links, New Genuine lower arms, Vibra-techniques engine mounts, Reinforced front subframe, Braided front brake lines, Mishimoto coolant hoses, Genuine thermostat all with new o-rings, temperature sensors ect, Genuine CSL bootlid, New rear brakes including handbrake shoes, All front end suspension bushes Secondary air pump delete, Hack Engineering coolant pipe, Inspection 2 service - Spark plugs, oil, air filter, valve clearances - ect, New poly v-belts, Plus a lot more !! I am wanting to use the car a lot more this year as I hardly used it last year ! Here are a couple photos of the car, so tell me what you think !. The plans are for this car to have : Recaro Pole position seats, 18" wheels square set up, Rear v-brace by ultra racing - on order, Re-furbished steering wheel, re-condition the complete rear end, sort out some paintwork !
