i had plenty of room up front, but the closer it got to the windsheild, there just wasn't enough room.

in order to get it to fit, they said they'd need an entire day and basically to take apart the entire front end to slide the hood in properly.

it sucked. no hood for me.

the only hope (for me) is that mike has had SO much custom body work done, that his hood has been matched to fit his custom fenders and other parts up front... which would make it hard, to nearly impossible, to fit on my non-m front end. other than that, the other shot is that my front end is just not at the same spec as most e46's right from the factory.
i guess yours is just weird, because i've seen two non-m's with stock fenders that the hood fits fine with said adjustments...
