Here's a few more

1) You always hold your friends up because you're checking out the E46 that you walked by going across the parking lot

2) You see a sexy M3 next to some hot girls and say to your friend, "Check out those exhausts"

3) After starting your car, you shut it down and start it again just to hear that low rumble

4) You get really pissed when you see bug spatters on your bumper

5) When finals are coming up and all you can think of is "7000k angel eyes..."

6) You clean out the inside of the rim as well as the outside

how bout showing up 5 min before your sisters wedding rehearsal ends, because you seen a e46 that looks exactly identical to yours with the same mods and go after it to see if it has anything better or something your missing (got off the exit on the highway to follow him lol. ) def was wondering if he was on this site tho, funny how i i do almost all that stuff and ive had the car for only a month and a half. Im also up till 3:30 in the mornin looking at threads and going over the ones i was interested in to see if i missed anything lol and i cry everytime it rains because i my dad takes up the entire garage so my cars sits in the driveway

You know your like most of the other E46 fanatics when:

1) you give people tips on how to fix their cars when you've never actually done the job yourself.

2) you've only watched your mechanic Otto do it or read on another thread how to fix the problem. suddenly you are a BMW Zeus.

you try to pass another e46 on the road to see if they have DDE's

you walk by another e46 and look in the interior to see if they have acshitzner ebrake handles and shift knobs...

...buy expensive mods knowing you'll have a major cash inflow sometime soon to cover those mods.
