My Ride: M3
Smile FS: 2003 Dinan S3-R M3 -- Highly Modded

I purchased this car several years ago from the local BMW dealership. This car was originally used as their "show car" for Dinan & other performance products--it has just about everything you can do to an E46 M3 and keep it street legal. The backseat of this car has been removed and it has a rear cage. The interior was re-carpeted in the back to keep the car looking nice inside.

The car runs perfectly. I've sorted the car very well over the past few years and would reason to say that, at this point, nearly every common and uncommon fix has been taken care of including vanos, headliners, water pump, coils, plugs, fuel pump, etc.

Most of the rubber in the backend of the car was replaced by Poly for a more rigid and stiff set up.

The battery was replaced with an Optima Redtop.

The car comes with a master battery kill-switch, brake light kill switch and tail lights/license plate light kill switch, these bespoke options are wired up to a carbon fiber switch panel in the cockpit for good measure. The car comes pre-wired for a ValentineOne.

The car also comes from the factory with no sunroof and an M-Cloth interior.

I have a mountain of invoices from high-end and very well respected motorsports shops for nearly all of the work that was done to the car since I purchased it.

I purchased this car with 44k on it in 2007 and I've only driven the car 24k in the entire time I've owned it. The car has seen a few track weekends but it is by no means a beat-up track car. I have the compression/ leak down test results to show that this car runs like new and I am happy to provide any serious buyers along with the names and phone numbers of the professionals that have worked to properly maintain this car over the past several years. This car is a total gem, period.

I always said I would keep this car forever, but I guess we all get old at some point and decide to sell our toys.

I forgot to mention a few things, I am sure I am forgetting a few others too.

The tint is a ceramic tint. This means that you can more reliably use a glass mounted antenna on this car. Metallic tint interferes with the signal.

I have a euro tray cup holder delete. Trust me, this is much better.

I've removed the armrest-- anyone with any serious driving experience in an E46 knows how annoying it is when the armrest starts flopping around at speed. A arm rest delete is sold for $59-70 bux and makes everything purdy inside again.

thats all I can think of for now.

yep

Nitto NT05 Tires, wheels are a single block aluminum billet wheel, it was actually hard to find a proper set of wheels to clear my huge calipers. I bought these CCW wheels at VIR from a guy who was getting ready to sell his E46 track car.

http://www.hutterperformance.com/Pro...CCW-Wheel.aspx

The tread on the back tires is worn by street standards, but according to my standards I know there is plenty of fun left on these and they have plenty of grip IMHO-- Just don't expect to put all 462 horses down when they are cold. When it comes to a R-compound tire that does not need to be heat cycled (Nitto NTO1/NT05 and plenty others) I have found that the NT05 is surprisingly good for street/track use. The way my car is set up one can expect to have fairly consistent grip on a new set of NT05's until about 100-110 in the rain (obviously this is a multi-factor equation).

Please let me know about any other questions. Thanks

Here are some pics below. From a parting out perspective, I think it was a pretty clean hit. From a usability perspective, this frame and car are toast. I need to wait until I have a more definitive assessment back from the Insurance company but I figure I should have most of it taken care of within a week or so.

Nick, aka, 05M3Driver, I am not selling you parts so that you can resell them on M3 forum. I can part the car out myself.

Looks like hood, bumper, fender, maybe wheel and rad support.
Was the strut tower moved at all?
Let me know if you're willing to sell as is.

I'm not sure it makes much sense to sell it as is; but, I will entertain offers if you send a PM. I wont be able to give any answers on parts until I have a final number from my insurance company.

From what I saw, the entire strut tower was crumpled but it did not look like there was any damage to the wheel. I'm surprised the wheel didn't go rolling away because there wasn't much left to hold it on.
