Coming along really nicely! I love the wheels that are on your car - they are one of my favourite m-sport wheels.

Bummer about the sunroof... maybe you can try searching on another forum, like m3forum.net for some answers? They have quite a large resource of info from some pretty e46 savvy members.

I am assuming that the sunroofs are all the same across the e46 range...

Yeah I did quite a bit of research. Pretty much everyone's issue was the sunshade clips braking and blocking the sunroof from closing.

It looks good, but I wouldn't want to have it.
I think I'm gonna get some clubsport splitters.
Does anyone know the best place to get them?

I got my car back from the paint shop today. I'm happy with how it turned out, the colour is perfect .

Tomorrow I'm going to put in the kidney grills and the sprinkler jets etc. Then maybe I'll do a photo shoot .

Basically all that is left now, is fixing the sunroof. I burrowed one of those little cameras from friend, similar to what doctors use to put down peoples throats, to get a better look if anything is blocking the path of the sunroof and we couldn't see anything. So we're still not sure what is going on .

Photo update!!







No grilles yet, just letting it sit in the sun to be sure the paint is 100% dry.

Just take the glass out it will be easier. You will find it is more than likely a build up of crap and it needs a good lube. That or the sun shade clips have broken off and jammed in the rail.
