My Ride: 02 TS M3 6MT Coupe
HSV Newbie

The Intro
Hello all. I have been using this site and a few others to learn as much as possible about the e46 model. Before I get into story here's a quick teaser.


The Setup
I am venturing away from the world of Nissan to find new terrain. I will most definitely miss my old 240, who is the reason for my new find and soon to be resurrected as a track only vehicle. About a month back my S13 finally succumb to old age and the crankshaft burst through the block. I was heartbroken to say the least. At the time I wasn't even looking for a e46, was looking for an IP G35 coupe. After traveling to B'ham and test driving a 02 SMG e46 coupe I was simply taken away by the vehicle. I traveled back home to find that a fellow in Huntsville was selling his 02 coupe for a more than reasonable price. After a test drive, some research of maintenance and a spotless PPI I jumped on this faster than Lidsey Lohan on a pile of unwrapped nose candy . Made my purchase of 16450 in less than a weeks time, 8/25/2011, and couldn't be happier.

The Breakdown
02 Titanium Silver M3 Coupe 107550mi (@ purchase date)
19" CSL rep wheels (tires had about 400mi on them prior to purchase)
CSL rep trunk
LED tail conv
Autosolutions Short Shifter

also with purchase:

Various fluids and spare bulbs
