Hey everyone,

I would like to ask you all a huge favor. My car is being nominated for best non-m coupe of the year and the race is very close at this point. PLEASE take a look at the thread and if you like what you see, hopefully I can earn each and everyone of your votes. I know a lot of people have been following my progress thread and most of you guys either know me on a personal basis or internet basis, so you've seen the amount of dedication I put into this car. Winning this would mean the world to me.

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...=#post14124543

Thanks in advance !

Thanks Steve

The new exhaust is getting welded as we speak. Should have it back in a couple hours
Before and after vids to come!

Voted for you! The form and function of your car together are incredible. I would've gone with Hyper Black ARC 8s- concave- and Recaro Sportster CS but that's just my own opinion, and your car is head and shoulders above most of the competition.

What exhaust are you installing?

Thanks man. Hyper black would look good too. I sold my 9" apex's so I can get 9.5's instead, so I might switch up the color.

Pretty much all the cars in the COTY threads sucked. Save for yours and the V8 3series. I left very negative comments, and will probably be banned. Obviously, I'm heart broken.

Just one more reason he should win. A clean car wins out over uniquely-stupid anyday.

Here it is guys











Pipes had to be welded in to connect the supersprint resonator to the eisenmann race muffler. Of course I chose to keep it quality by using t-304 stainless like the rest of the exhaust.




The end result:



The x-pipe:





Done!!

Edit: never mind found it. Nice choices! Supersprint
