Lol Cant compare the sound to an M3! but for a 325 it sure is better than stock.

Yes, the one between the cat and the muffler. After reading through a couple threads everyone said not to do the first resonator.... I was a little confused though, when the car was up on the lift all i could see was muffler / resonator / catalytic converters... i didnt see a second resonator between cats / headers. Maybe i was being blind though

Cars fixed but you can't duct tape an upper hose that corroded away where the quick connects are attached.

For some reason I feel that the resonator delete will differ in effect between the 323/328 and the 325/330 respectively.

The 330 and to my knowledge, the 325, both have dual pipes from the headers to the muffler.

My 328 uses the front resonator as a junction and continues back through the second resonator as a single larger pipe, into the muffler. It exits the same way with two tips though.

I have the second resonator deleted as well (previous owner), and all it seems to differ is I have a bit more of a big block throaty noise at idle.

So you took your car to a shop to have an INTAKE installed?

A little update on the mirrors. It has taken me a while to do these because I am doing them between work, traveling and other projects being done to the zhp. I have completed the sanding and priming and moved onto the painting. So far so good! There are little dips and unevenness in the mirrors but after sanding each coat I hope to get most of it off. I am really happy with the results to far being my first time ever painting a car part. It is not pro quality but looks good! See for yourself.

My Ride: 2001 BMW M3 Phen Yel
Just recently picked up a m3 and so far I've bought oem m3 floor mats, black and white carbon fiber bmw kit, metal m3 license plate, cleaned the hell out of the engine compartment, and tomorrow I have a guy coming over for a quote on a new paint job. I am thinking of adding a turbo, but don't know where to start. I also want to dye the seats.
