Thanks for the comments everyone.
Yes, the pictures are a little bright, the flash was on when I snapped the shots. It is not that dark.

I knew the wheels would turn a lot off, and although they would not have been my first choice...the one thing I am glad of is...
They are not like most of the wheels that are out there. It seems that 90% of the E46 M3s have only a handful of different wheel styles.
I will be keeping my eye open for something a little more 'Bimmer Like' that is maybe in the 'Not So Common' catagory.

Seen lots of ideas out here and different ways to go...it goes without saying that there are many different tastes out here.
What a sad world this would be if we all had the same taste....

Aight. So my smoked signal came in to replace the one that jumped out on the way home from picking it up.
Put em in just now and snapped a few pics before the sun went down.

So much better looking IMO with the black trim vs the IR that was in the headlights and smoked signals vs clear.

I even hooked the DRLs back up. Kinda like the yellow bulb. Reminds me of city lights which I desire so much.. Cracked 91k on the drive down from OH. What a run it was. This thing sounds glorious and pulls like crazy.
Coming from my ole 328 I feel like I jumped from a old supersport to a modern superbike. It just pulls and pulls and pulls. And she is LOUD! But u can mute her if u cruise at light throttle.
AP headers. Euro or CSL section 1(not 100% sure which) pulleys, still trying to accertain the brand so i can haz spare belts, and a top speed muffler.
Streamline air filter and DA tune. She runs like a angry cheetah.

Couple quick phone pics of mine, you think it's a big jump coming from a 328, try a 323 touring lol. I do miss all the space sometimes. Just wish I could find a hardtop.
