I know the car really well, I had the honor of driving it, up to day the best sounding S54 around and the short shifter is like no other.

I do not have the car in my possession as of yet, it's getting rear subframe reinforced (yes, same old issue). Will take some proper pics once I have it.

Yes!! Awesome man. There are times I wish I kept my sedan and swapped the S54 in it. That is a great reason to leave the e9x platform lol

It's still in the shop in Stratford, CT. They are reinforcing the rear subframe with 1/8 thick steel from both outside and inside. Not sure if you can just and see it in the shop but I'll bring it to meets.

Hi, just know on you post that you got a BMW E46 M3 Conversion Sedan. I m currently working on the same project in Australia.
Just want to know how your friend (that build this M3 Sedan) resolve the washer bottle problem?
I did not make any changes on the body shape so the original sedan bottle cannot fit as the M3 expansion tank took its place.
The original M3 bottle also wont be fit behind the bumper bar as it is too large.
Could you mind to check how can he make it or tell me whats in your car as I can see the in you photos the washer bottle cover is just next to your expansion tank so I believe he (your friend) is using the M3 bottle.

Thank you very much for your help.
