My Ride: '02 M3 Vert
Haven't Been Here in a While...........

Sup everyone! I haven't posted much the past few months, I was focusing on other aspects of life but I was still checking in daily to see what was going on in the E46 world and following the progression of the modding scene.

The most notable changes to the M3 have been:

Additions:
Upgraded to BC Coilovers (14k/16k) = went lower
Megan Racing Exhaust with Titanium Tips
Bluetooth Parrot Retrofit
//M Welcome Lights

Subtractions:
Swapped the Alcantara SMG/E-Brake Boots for OEM (want to swap out the steering wheel eventually as well)
Swapped the Vorsteiner CSL Console for OEM Center Console
Sold Z-Tek Exhaust
Sold M3AN One Headers
KSport Coilovers (For Sale)

I have a pair of side skirt extensions that I might add as well as build my own front splitter and rear diffuser. I've also been contemplating swapping my ACS diffuser for a CSL, but I kind of like how the ACS pairs with the Megan tips.

I also have a bunch of things that I have been lagging on... (headliner repair, windshield replacement, rtabs, fcabs, steering coupler and 3.91 lsd )

that's all for now, hope all my E46 buddies are doing well and hoping to get out to some meets more often

14k 16k!?!? What damper setup you have?
I am on 7/8k with 21 damper, the car is like punching everyone road tank cover.

Very clean. The paint splatter trim is not for me, but each to their own.

thanks! the welcome light mod is pretty simple believe it or not. the kit comes with a drill bit so all you do is mount the projector in the door panel then run the wire through the door and tap into the footwell light on each side.

if you look at any DIY regarding the e90 led door handles you can follow the same instructions

haha it is actually a hologram. there is a little projector mounted on the bottom of the door panel that emits the logo, looks amazing at nighttime.

im running full stiff in the rear and 8 clicks from full stiff up front. i want to soften the rear up a bit but i need to drill holes to reach the top of the shocks to adjust them, another thing on my to-do list.

as for the wheel setup, i only rub the liner on full lock (u-turns and tight parking spots mostly), other than that my setup is 100% rub-free and i can carry 3 passengers along with me
