Wow clutch is stock and going fine, I will upgrade it when needed. Also I am planning to put a smaller pulley and tune the boost to 8,5PSI according to ESS the car should be between 360-380

Well time for one of the last updates as I have the car as I want it and it will remain fairly unchanged for years with only maintenance to do...
Here is my new interior
Recaro Sportster Seats with custom cinnamon leather and Carbon fibre black trim

Congratulations with a very nice car. The SC is addictive and with those seats you do not jump into the car, you dress it on :-)

One little detail: I think that a BMW with a 6-in-line deserves the battery in the rear (hint: the cable from the 325ti fits). Except from that - perfect!

Yep I've been thinking about moving the battery, The only thing is that I should redo the whole audio system as in the place of the battery there is a lot of audio components from the sub and the amplifiers.

Best regards!

Wow my written english is not as bad as I though!

I am based in Madrid, Spain, E46 compacts were never imported to US Market although they are very popular across Europe. In case you wonder why someone would choose this controversial styling instead of the beauty lines of the Coupe it comes down to pricing, these cars were between 6000-10000 Euros cheaper than their coupe siblings with the same engine. Also BMW did not fit any diesel engines in pre-restyling E46 while the compact had a Diesel option from the very beginning.
