[Andy2108] Topaz M3 Progress Thread (KerryGetz&John from jersey's car, its back!)

Remember that 2002 Topaz Blue Europrojektz M3 that was owned by John from jersey and then Kerry Getz? Well, these days, its in my hands

What It used to look like:







How it sits today:















So, as you can see, there have been some changes. The owner before me had it for about 2.5 years, and before him a shop had the car. When the PO got it, it didn't have much of a stereo, I guess. John sold the big huge MB Quart setup. There have been alot of different rims on the car since then. I was really bummed to find out that the car used to have a Brembo BBK. Rockin oem's now.

Mod list:
Custom CF CSL front, (probably custom) CF CSL trunk, Custom CF oem hood, everything on the interior is CF, its a bit much
CF rear diffuser custom molded into the rear bumper
Recaro Sort seats and custom matching rear seats
BSW 210 subs with 600watt 1ohm amp, MB Quart tweeters, Some other aftermarket stuff in the midbass front and rear.
Enkei RPF1 19x8.5" ET35 and 19x10" ET25
UUC SSK, SwayBarBarians, Pedals
Magnaflow cat-back
KW V2 coils, poly bushings everywhere
4:10 gears
Eagle-Eye (I think) Led tails, CCFL 6000k Angle Eyes
There's so much, I cant really sit down and remember it

Stuff I've already done:

Evosport Power Pullies
aFe Stage 2 CAI (it still had the same K&N on it from when Kerry had it )
35% tint. Sorry, but it gets hot in Kansas
ZHP Shift knob. Read above. Solid Metal shifter wasn't my favorite, so I switched.
I have a new OEM bumper that I have yet to paint.
Agency Power Headers
New sway bar end links and bushings.
LOTS of maintenance. 10 year old cars need lots of new bushings and gaskets. new oil pan gasket is already in, the input and both output shafts on the diff are leaking, so that's going to be rebuilt in the spring.

Spring Mods:
Bridgestone Potenza RE-11's
Performance Friction Brakes PFC-05 pads
Camber Plates and Turner Camber Arms

So, if you cant already tell, this car has been repping performance all its life, and now its time for it to prove itself. Going to be doing some serious track time this next summer, hopefully.

About the front bumper.... The shipping company I used RELIABLE CARRIERS damaged my bumper and then said that paying for a new Vorsteiner cf csl bumper would be "undisputed betterment to the vehicle".

Well, I think an oem bumper looks pretty good when the car is lowered, and I am going to put the front back down this weekend.

So, yeah. If you guys have any old pics of this car, or any info, then feel free to post it up. I'm trying to kinda piece together some of this cars past.

Too bad the europrojektz site has been down forever

^This. That is prob the most badass interior setup on e46s to date. Can't believe this car is still floating around in almost the same condition..

Not as into the current wheels... but that's just because of the HREs

Pretty awesome to see the car hasn't changed much

I wish I could find my old photos, I had pics of it when it was getting worked on at Creative Car Tunes... they were good pics too! I'll ask my friend if he has any.

thanks everyone.

the trunk is back to stock, accept for a bsw 210 sub

I agree, the gold HRE's were sweet, but I like the enkies too, and they're only like 19lbs, so that's nice.

I except your explanation accept for you having a flawed statement since I know you didn't get rid of the CSL trunk.

OG right here.... John's rocking a Lambo now and Kerry I think just sold his E92 and was in the market for another E46 M3.
