My Ride: 02 E46 M3
Hello from Idaho, M3 Vert build, everyone loves pics!

Hi, my name is Alex and this is my E46 M3 Convertible. I bought this car last year after selling my GTO. When I bought it, it had some CSL replica wheels, carbon fiber SMG hub, carbon fiber lower steering wheel inlay, and some angel eye rings. Other than that the car was very stock. All service records were included with the car and I was a happy camper


Then i started the Mods

Pics from AUG 2012



I got the car home and the next day, wrapped the rear diffuser panel, kidney grills







About a week later, I bought some lowering springs from a fellow E46 M3 owner and installed them along with clear corner markers.
( I can't find these pics but you will see them in the next mod)
I ordered a carbon fiber AC Schintzer replica lip and put it on.








I got the lip on and was happy as a clam.

UNTIL.......
OCT 2012
Early one morning on my way into work, a big black dead dog was in the middle of the road. I swerved but still clipped the lip, which shattered


Pulled the lip off and kept it off for the winter.
DEC 2012
Checking my tires one day and I noticed this



DEC 2012
Ordered new tires, and pulled my interior trim out and wrapped it in carbon fiber vinyl


JAN 2013
Brake Time!!!! Front slotted rotors, OEM rears, Hawk pads all around

FEB 2013
Decided to change up the look a little bit, and painted my highway bowls and fog lights amber. I loved the look.





MAR 2013
Added some flair to the back window


Also, the snow had melted, decided to order another lip. Went with the same lip but I didn't but the splitters on.




I also ordered a set of color matched bumper markers and replaced the clear ones.


Along with the bumper markers, I ordered some 10k headlights. Old bulbs on left, new on right.


APR 2013
Ordered a decklid lip. LOVE the simple look.

Had a few blown speakers, decided to rewire the entire car, new front door speakers, new rears, and added a subwoofer. Boston Acoustic fronts, Kicker rears, old school Punch woofer, Kicker amp, Alpine head unit.


MAY 2013
Tire Gods struck again.



at a local car meet, topless

JUN 2013
Tires were fixed and Taxes came back






Varrstoen ES6 19X9.5 +20/19X11 +25
Varrstoen open ended extended lug nuts
Motorsport Hardware Wheel stud conversion kit


Had to wait for new tires (yes, new tires again this car is up to 9 tires now) and wheel studs to come in. Rolled the rear fenders.



Shined up the old wheels and threw them on craigslist. They lasted 3 hours.


All the parts came in.










Noticed there were too many colors on the car, White, clear, yellow, blue, black, carbon fiber..... Made some changes, smoked corner lights.

pulled off the carbon wrap

got rid of the shadowline side grills


Blacked out the highway bowls and took the fogs back to clear





I liked where the car was at this time.







Decided the black housing looked werid and wanted to readjust the lip and put the chrome kidney grills in

Them came along Idaho's big import show of 2013. Import Revolution. The car was waxed, clean and ready to show.







All the hard work paid off




SO thats my car.... I havent done much since the car show.... Ordered some new Powerflex bushings and some new rear wheel bearings.
