The Auto Analysts II Spec E46 Build thread

Auto Analysts II is very excited to announce our latest racing endeavor. We are in the process of developing one of the first BMW Spec E46 race cars in Northern California. Auto Analysts II is happy to be part of the beginning stages of this new series. We are confident the series will see success equal to the very popular and competitive Spec E30 series we have been part of and supporting for the last 5 years.

We will continue to race the white #34 in the Spec E30 series and support our current SpecE30 customers. We look forward to contributing to another BMW platform in the racing community with our newly acquired E46.

We located a low mileage 2002 BMW 330ci manual. We are now in the process of getting it race ready. First up we will be stripping the interior and prepping for a cage.

Follow the build out of our new race car here, on https://www.facebook.com/AutoAnalystsII and http://instagram.com/autoanalysts2_a_

Sorry for the off topic post
But what will you be doing with the wheels that you have mounted in the picture?
keeping and using ?
selling?
stock piling?

Actually excited to see the progress with this as well

Thanks for the interest. We will be keeping these rims to use as rollers. The roll cage is still being put in. I'll post up some pics of the cage progress shortly.

That's a nice looking rear bulkhead. Does it have to be airtight?

Can't believe that beautiful natural interior was scrapped.

Hi Guys,

Sorry we haven't been updating much lately. We've been lucky enough to be very busy with customers cars, so not much time work on our own race cars.

We recently installed the Turner Motorsport rear subframe reinforcements and the BimmerWorld solid mounts.

The interior was beautiful and is now in another e46 so it was not scrapped, just switched cars.
