I actually LOVE this car. Is the CSL bootlid from Vorsteiner? Would love to pick up an E46M in LSB, Interlagos or Le Mans if one comes on the market in the next year or two.

Holy anal beads kook your car is phat.

What brake package are you running? It looks different on the back? Also, your wheels look like they have a mad amount of stagger - what brand are they?

Do the lights work on your M5 shifter? Interesting touch.

Is the back muffler a supersprint? Because the exhaust tips don't look like a SS item.. I am really picky when it comes to how the exhaust tips look on a car and yours look perfect with the CSL diffuser and i prefer it to the SS Race tip.

Your car looks perfection to me - well done

Bootlid & rear diffuser are OEM CSL. Bootlid is made out of SMC whatever the heck that process is. Diffuser is carbon fibre. Got them from here

http://www.ca-int.co.uk/products-Y2F...wX2lkPTY2.html

Intake I got second hand from a guy in the US. Have a 100mm aircon duct going from the front diffuser duct up to the intake shoving air down its throat as you drive. Noticed a big drop in heat soak on the intake when I did that, it definitely stays cooler.
Brakes are stock, just painted the calipers matt black. Rotors I replaced about a year ago, cant remember the brand, sorry.
Lights on M5 shifter work, though I chose to drop the gear position shiftlights, its too bright at night, though the whole thing illuminates when headlights on.
Muffler is supersprint Race, not the lightweight, this one here

Moved M3 badge as well recently

...now I have to stop spending, correct...? Wheel order was a complete stuff up by the way! When it got here I had stupidly ordered manual instead of SMG version, so had no paddles/switches! Had to send it all the way back to the US and they resent SMG....

Very nice car and colour, kook!!

I highly recommend you get gloss black kidney grills, will look much better then matte in my opinion.

Looks absolutely stunning Kook!

I'm not the biggest fan of smoked front indicators tbh, but the rest to me looks spot on.

Are you thinking about a genuine CSL front bar next?

The CSL rims and bootlid combo look brilliant with the LMB, they should've made it an official CSL colour! Love the genuine carbon intake too!

Thanks for all the compliments. I was thinking either carbon fibre roof or the front bumper next, but brandtner told me I'm not allowed to spend anymore money, and instead buy a full genuine CSL. I'm not a very good listener sometimes... Cant believe somebody hasnt snapped up the CSL door trims that M3 CS has for sale, they are schweet. Must control myself...

Go the CSL front bar next to finish off the CSL look you are after.
The CF roof can be the last mod, that will really 'top it off'

Very nice!

The special edition came in nonstandard colours and trim; so yours is carbon black with cream interior + steering wheel too? Better keep those hands at 10 and 2!
