Now I will admit that the turbo kits seemed to come together quite quickly.

As far as the shifter goes, your run of the mill SSK is a piece of crap and doesn't really help in the slightest.

Edit: nevermind about the fuel mileage. Fuelly looks good, although IIRC the ratings are not that great.
Sure, you could do that with a Bently but it would cost alot more than say a toyota. And the aftermarket community isinīt that big.

All Iīm saying is that this car is a blank slate. Small, light, Really low center of gravity, RWD, LSD, 6 Speed manual, etc.

The E46 M3 is IMO the only E46 Worth sinking money into. But the insurance costs and the cost of the parts etc, is steering me away from one.

1999 328i Sport Package, Premium Package, 5 speed, Alpine white.
