That's not an E46 M3 though... That is a 3 series pre-facelift sedan. Not that the engine doesn't make up for it. Why not just say S54 powered AWD 3 series sedan?

However, you can call my awd m3 as the 4 door old bimmer with some add ons. I dont mind.

I own 4 M3s, all Euro spec, all twin turbos.

I call this M3 as XM3 TT ( TT stands for twin turbos)
Those examples are of M3s from the factory, regardless of how many doors they had.

A 3 series with an S54 is NOT an E46 M3 because the E46 M3 is more than just a motor... a lot more.

I thought you were you modifying an E46 M3 for AWD. Not taking a 3 series that came with AWD and changing the motor. Call it whatever you want I guess... Just a little deceptive on your part.

I am also disappointed it is not a real m3, plus for a 50k engine, I would have cleaned the engine bay up a bit.

Because he never started with an E46 M3 which is a coupe or convertible. Instead he has taken a 3 series sedan to change over into his idea of an M3.

No one is criticizing the work... just that he isn't doing what he initially led people to think. If he didn't post photos we'd all be sitting here thinking it was an M3 to begin with. An M3 with AWD has not been done. A 3 series with AWD is already done by BMW.

Did I say you used BMW's parts? No. You clearly started with an AWD 3 series. The basis for doing the AWD "swap" was already there.


I'm beginning to understand why you seem to be at the center of past controversy.

@braymond141:

What difference does it make? If he had used an M3 Chasis he would have pulled most of the parts anyway. Then again - he has the M3 rear and an M3 motor - thus making it a custom "M3 sedan". How do you suggest we call it? "318 sedan prefacelift M3 parts, M3 motor, awd custom car"?

Besides - there are people who have turned their sedans into M3s. Its not as big a deal as you think. They simply pulled everything from an M3 (front, rear, suspension, brakes, stearing, gearbox, differential, engine (and what not) from an original M3 and bolted those parts onto a modified sedan chasis.

They have even manufactured their own chasis parts (fenders and so on) to give their sedan the same look and wheel clearance an M3 has. Original M3 bumpers, mirros, speedo. No one has a problem if these guys call their ride an M3 sedan...

Besides - I dont know about you guys but I wouldnt repaint my engine room if I was still working on everything. I would finish the job - THEN pull everything apart and paint it!

@TwinTurboS54:
I asume you didnt really spend 50 grand on your engine. I asume that is what it would cost if I would have you build that engine. The way I understand it you do it all by yourself - for yourself It would be great if you could post more detailed pictures (AWD parts).
