Three years in the making... (S54 Swap Content)

It feels like just yesterday that I ended my longtime lurker status and joined e46fanatics after finally buying the car that I had had my eye on for so long. In 3 short years of actively posting on the forum, I've reached two milestones: the completion of the mod that I then only considered an unrealistic dream for someone like me with no experience with BMWs, and this, my 100,000th post.

Thank you, everyone, who helped me get here today. There are just so many fanatics that have been part of my experience here that I won't name names for fear of leaving someone out, but in particular, thanks go to my good friends in norcal general chat and socal general chat, who are largely to blame for both the S54 swap happening and the excessive post count, haha. Never could I have imagined that I'd own a modded car, or that I'd be responsible for organizing a weekly BMW meet, or that I'd be opening my garage up night after night to all of the awesome people I've met who share the same passion for their cars.

Without further ado, here are the videos from the weekend...


First start of my S54-swapped sedan:


Second start (a little better quality):

Driving off for the first time:


Thanks for the videos, Kyle!
