Lol, no, Iím no engineer. There are more people then you think, without higher education, who are able to make something.

Great job man
Yes, that was another possibility, but I wanted to make something with, for the first time ever, my name on it.

Meanwhile, I totally finished the CF logo's. Here the show pictures.
What's in the CF box?

Robolop's Logo ....O yeah....




The aluminum ring, I abraded in the same way I did like the alu in the front bumper.
I had the intention of painting them black, like the window moldings...But then again, there would be no more contrast with the carbon fibre.
Silver, like the car, wasn't an option either.



For me, they worked out a 100%, and again, I've got something original.

I think you already know, I ordered some things for the amplifierbox. Cause these things still aren't delivered, I worked on some other things in the meanwhile.
Sitting still isn't my style
The next update has nothing to do with car-hifi.
When I bought the car 2 years ago, I already knew I was going to make this some day....Now I purchased a M-tech2 rear bumper with pdc.
This is an original bumper from BMW itself, because I didn't want to get the same sh*t, that I had with the front bumper.
Once I received the bumper, I mounted it on, and it fitted perfectly!
So I could paint it, and mount it on...but you know that's not my style
I want the back of the car, look more like an M3. What the comments will be about this, I don't know, but I think it's the most beautiful rear of an E46.

This also means I'm going for quad exhausts in the rear. This won't be easy...but yet, another challenge.
The original M3 doens't have a spare wheel in the back, but instead is the exhaust system.
What maybe an even bigger challenge is that I'll try to make this work on the original exhaust.
Because in Belgium, we have to go to a technical control every year with the car, I drove to the control-station and asked if this would be a problem.
they told me that whatever goes behind the original exhaust is no problem, as long as they can messure the CO-output.
After a long search on ebay, I purchased these pipes.

The end pipes didn't look like that when I ordered them on the internet.
The thing I'm pointing at, should have been straight.


You can see on the picture, it looks a bit curved.
I could do 2 things: Send them back, or tune it myself.... I did the last one
I put in the disc an hour later after delivery .





This looked much better according to me. Now it's the art of making these things fit descently onto the exhaust system.
Because I knew that things of the exhaust will get very close to the rear bumper, I need to do something to keep the heat out of there. This is special material to go around the pipes, and can resist a temperature of 1200 degrees. Heath wrapping.



Then I also have a heat-shield to put on the back of the bumper.
