The splitters up front and CSL bootlid would set it off nicely. Definitely get OEM M3 mirrors while you're at it.

So I wont do anything with the interior at the moment.

What do you guys think about CSL frontbumper and bootlid?
Any other mods that would be cool to do?
M tech bumper looks better imo but the bootlid would look quite nice

Here are 2 videos I got from the prev. owner of the car after some miles with the Supercharger.
I think im gonna get a GoPro camera and get some good videos with full acceleration so you can see what its capable of, so these are just teasers

And you can hear the nice sound from the BMW Performance Airbox in the first vid.



Maybe I should get a clip of the Eisenmann exhaust aswell if people are interrested

Get a shorter diff and that thing will FLY. A 3.46 would be wonderful (or is it a 3.48? I forget). Cheap and amazing mod.

Stroke some bad luck when I was going to change the front turn signals :/
the mounting points were totaly ruined and broke when we took the old ones out. So I need new headlight too And of course the dealer sent me the wrong turnsignals -.-

That interior/exterior color combo is mouth dropping. I fucking hate my interior The only thing i'd do to that car is a lip spoiler or CSL bootlid and maybe some ACS mirrors

Wow, beautiful car, one of the best color combos available for sure. I'm jealous of all the supercharged e46s being sold on the market lately!

Looks like you need some resistors for your LED tail lights. I have a thread on it, from about 4 years ago

The only thing you need to do with that car is drive it. Don't change a thing, the color combo with that interior is perfection.

Hehe, a new diff would be cool, but since its an every day car and because of the weather in norway I dont think it would be the best idea.
M3/M5 mirrors are coming, but since the coupe mirrors aint too bad, its not top prior CSL bootlid tho, that coming soon, had it on my 318 and cant get enough of it ^^ But im still not decided what to do with the front.

hi its me alec, got a link the your thread ?

very nice car. that wood trim is rare, sell it and paint a set of less desirable trim if you have to paint something.

I really like the Hamann lip too, but the problem is all the speed bumps here :/
Driven with it for just a week and the whole underside is white with scratches and its got several cracks too. So if I want to use it, i can't have the car as low as it is now

You sir have a very nice car but keep in mind you wouldn't come close to a "boosted" ///M, so I wouldn't necessarily call it an M3 killer. Still....a very nicely modded and beautiful example you have there!
