In the span of 2 weeks, i replaced my cowl, replaced expansion tank and hoses, replaced passenger window regulator, changed oil and filter, and installed a new double din headunit. Counting to a month, installed an m3 bumper and painted reflector bowls. Coming saturday, adding a 3rd channel to the airbox and a new microcabin filter!

I purchased the 1156 with the wide angle; I'm telling you man, they are worth every penny. I wish I had taken a comparison pic when I was installing, just too excited to replace the old LED bulbs lol

Picked it up on ebay. These usually cost $300-400 in decent shape. You can also get it brand new for $900-1k

Not sure you plan on getting that in their with the front end still together but word of advice, take apart the front end, will save you time and the headaches.

For some reason I thought it would be easier to pull it out with the tranny still attached, luckily the lift went up high enough to not need to take the front end off, I'll be putting the tranny back on tomorrow before i even try to wiggle the new motor in, i feel like it's gonna be a pain to line it up down there tho

Just got 4 new Michelin Sport Pilot AS Plus'... Changed the lenses all the way around, wrapped the interior with black Di-Noc carbon fiber and dropping it off tomorow to get some seriously illegal window tint! Plus I am happy that, on a whim, I took some polish to a few spots on the hood where I thought the clearcoat was peeling... Turns out the areas were just a little etched by something... Not sure what but they are GONE now! Lookin' better every day!

My Ride: bro truck
Father and I dropped the E46 off at the body shop yesterday. We might get it back the first week of January. It is so inconvenient with only 2 cars and 3 drivers.

Finally finally finally did my passenger side rear wheel bearing. It was getting BAD. Sounds great now. Only problem is I finished everything and once done realized I forgot to put in the retaining clip!
