Just bought these. I need the extra width due to the m3 wheels. I haven't seen any pics with a touring yet.

Nice supercharger!

Do you have any more photos of it? Did you do the install yourself? Also, how many miles are on the motor?

What PSI are you running? I don't know much about forced induction on e46s,yet.

Stock internals? worried about longevity at all?

Running about 8psi, not too worried about the internals, as if it blows up, good reason to get better parts

I'd hate to pull up next to you. Talk about a pretty sleeper.

Nice!! How did you like installing the flares? How's the fitment out of the box?

The M3 brakes will be a little bit of a challenge to get working. You can make the fronts work by milling a few mm off the OEM M3 caliper mounting brackets, but they are not a direct bolt on with non-M spindles. The rears are a little more of a challenge, IIRC. I never tried that though, so I'm not speaking from personal experience there.

Fitment is awesome on the flares, I still need to use the included spacers on my bumpers though. I was wrong about the brakes, they are from a newer 4 series and should bolt right on

Good to hear. I really want to get those instead of messing around with rust repair. Well that's interesting about the 4 series brakes, definitely good to know! Looking forward to your progress on this thing.

Nice sleeper wagon! Let us know how the brake install goes as my brakes are due. Might as well upgrade if it's plug and play.
