    Hi will post pics once I have figured.

    This is my second M3 last one being a 04 mystic blue vert with manual gear box.

    After a good 8 years later I was looking into a coupe with a Sunroof and manual was kind of rare and only a few within my budget.

    It's had the rod bearing recall done
    Along with no running issues and checked her from cold start on inspection.

    Unfortunately the current owner couldn't afford maintenance on her so sold it.

    It's in in need of a suspension refresh and have decided to stick to oe spec based on reviews on dedicated e46 fanatics and going with bilstein B4 shocks and eibach Pro Street springs with reinforced front and rear plates and chassis braces and struts.

    I want the best road feel possible out of my set up as its a beast from factory and live the oe appeal of these M cars.

    The has some rust issues but nothing worth worrying about as it's a 18yr old car and needs tlc but it's still amazing to drive every time.

    I'm looking to bring back the interior of the car up to my standards with the usual touches.

    Il get some pics up soon.
