My Ride: m3 e46 vert lsb
2002 LSB M3 Vert Build Thoughts/opinions

Im in the last couple days of the first part of the build. I bought a 2002 bmw m3 LSB vert for a steal from my mechanic who deals with supras. It has 51K on it SMG package and needed some TLC when got it. The pics with the snow on the ground are when first got it. Brakes where trash, the wheels where like curbed to the extreme it was pitiful. Tires were shot. and the car had been sitting for 7 months. I had the cars repainted the LSB blue so it has a fresh coat, I powder coated the wheels Bengal silver and had all the curbage fixed so they are as if they were brand new. I put a new engine splash shield, new fan, new spark plugs oil changed, Also painted calipers black I put DBA 4000 XS series rotors cross drilled and slotted on it front and back, EBC yellow stuff pads, ATE super blue fluid, and stop tech steel braided brake lines. For tires so far I put nitto invo 235 35 19 on front and 255 35 19 on the rear. Also put the solid brass caliper bolts in as well while did the brakes so they are fully upgraded. also put in a new MAF sensor which it needed. This is just phase one. I had a stage 3 Subaru that was in middle of building I sold to him to get this and so im thinking on supercharging it in the next coming months or turbo charging it. Thinking of carbon fiber trunk, hood and grille and fender inlays, and wanted to also put borla atak exhaust on it as well and then maybe do custome interior. but we all know with projects usually end up going another route. so tell me what you think so far and any feedbacks always well come thanks
