Imola 2002 E46 M3 - Documentation thread

I like to start these threads to keep track of my cars, the mods and the maintenance I do.

Picked up this 109K 02 Imola on black 6MT slick top in Tennessee in december and immediately I've torn into it.

-TMS subframe reinforcement kit -$141
-Akg Motor mounts 75D - $140
-Akg Tranny mounts 75D - $40
-Akg Subframe bushings 75D - $180
-Akg Differential Bushings 75D - $130
-FCP Lemforder Flex disk ?(guibo) - $93
-Fobi driver side e-brake cable - $24
-Bilstein PSS10's
-Ground control camber plates
-Custom subframe reinforcement brace

I bought these because I noticed I had a loud bang when shifting hard in lower gears on the way home, so once I made the 13 hour trip, I got under there the next day to find 109K mile bushings at the end of their life and a tiny crack just now starting at the subframe mounting point on the body, probably due to the shitty bushings.

I've removed everything in preperation for the install of all these parts next week. Can't wait to get this round of maint / mods out of the way so I can start personalizing the vehicle.

Already installed was a UUC short shift kit, body colored grilles (meh).
