Me too.

Ok one more for you Rich this may actually be my favorite of the day. This one does the car justice because it shows how everyone takes a moment to check this car out

This is an incredibly good looking car!

Seriously, you guys stateside have so much better taste than germans have... it's often so horrible to see how people treat their car or what they do to them...

Yeah right. You should see some of the monstrosities I see on the streets here everyday. I could personally say that I have never seen an M3 like this one just driving on the streets. Never.

I'm not talking about M3's only... these are just barely (to never) seen on the Streets here.
I'm talking about E46 models in general... mostly the taste of E46 owners and the way they 'modify' their cars is kind of... weird.

...and that's what most people call 'quality tuning' in Germany, my friend.

Now time for some Good.....


And some bad....





The Good ----- First Class Fitment 2013 Pics






















Now for the bad.....

I think my SMG Pump went.

These are from my facebook convo, but it gives you an idea of whats going on...

"its neutral dropping every time I go near the gas, and sometimes wont even find a gear and pop back into neutral. Makes a grinding noise when I try to select a gear. But when I unlock the car, the pump still primes. I changed the relay, and also the resistor in the SMG mod I did, and still the same thing."

"Mine just started randomly, i was backing into a spot at school, and the SMG light came on when i went on the gas. I parked it went to class thinking, ehh just a fluke, whatever. I went to leave, and it would take 3-4 attempts to find 1st gear, and then if I slowed at all to downshift, it would neutral drop."

"it barely goes in gear now, like there was no slowly getting worse phase. it just crapped out. Tow wont cost me much if anything, roadside assistance comes with my insurance."

sounds like a slave or gear position sensor to me not the pump. As the pump going out would not push it out of gear it just would not allow you to go in to gear at all..
