I think I've decided.

Gloss Black on both it is! It's kind of expensive from the stealership.

I recall the E46 OEM Trim being this expensive but can anyone confirm?

I always liked the Duke Dynamics Kit, but I heard they have bad fitment and its discontinued.

How about Cyba's M-tech Quad diffusers

It's funny that you mention that bumper. I actually purchased one from a local guy for dirt cheap because he wasn't able to sell it. However, it isn't painted the right color. I had changed plans to go with the Duke bumper but have decided against it because I really don't want to deal with a fiberglass bumper after having the Hamann GTR one. Since I'm going with black flairs all over my car, this bumper doesn't quite go with the theme so it's gotta go!

Sneak peak of the bumper I purchased and it's now in transit

Small update while I wait for the other goodies to arrive.

This is a modified CDV from Burger Motorsport (Makers of the JB3). Basically it's a drilled/ported stock CDV. For those unfamiliar with CDV, it's a Clutch Delay Valve. I don't remember having this on my E46, but what it does is... basically, makes a terrible 6mt driver conserve his clutch a lot more. To the more experienced drivers, it makes shifting clunky and engages slow! Hard to explain but yea.



**** it, here's a full body shot before my kit gets put on

Been a little busy starting up my own company (for Performance Products) and haven't had much time to work on my own car.

But, little update, my new bumper was shipped and here it is. It's going to be some time before it's actually on my car because I'm waiting for my CF CSL Trunk and M3 Sideskirts. I'm not sure which diffusor I'm going to go with at the point but my friend got a Vorsteiner one and it's just ridiculously beautiful. I may go with that one or the Hamann one. Reason why I'm holding off on this is because my Rear Bumper is extra ****ed up from D.C. and Alexandria idiot drivers, I would probably buy a new one or repair this one which will delay that portion of the project a little.

It's a JLevi E92 M3 Bumper with Custom Molding for a Authentic Vorsteiner M3 Front Lip.



Additionally, I've been working with BMS to fine tune my car with the new firmware. I'd like my car to be a little more responsive so BMS recently updated their software to enable bogfix. Basically... this maintains boost between shifts much better.

Here is a datalog from yesterday? 3rd to 4th. WOT.



Car is running great, no check engine lights or anything.

One might be wondering, why not OEM M3. Lots of modifications are required of the Non-M E92, mainly the front fenders... which ultimately would turn this into a very expensive project. Not willing to drop serious dollars on this when there's a viable solution out there.

Main benefit of going OEM M3 would be me not having to custom mold the Vorsteiner lip to the bumper.
