Well, now we know it's pretty much ready for that

I think I'll spring for the 5sp swap before I get the wheels done though.

Here's a pic I took last year of how the fronts will end up... I don't have my vorshlag camber plates on the car yet

Just a couple more to close out the season. Turns out I'll be doing more body work.

First one is from Oktoberfest. Great time, car was still mint.



Next one is after it got keyed. No idea who did it. Hopefully they die soon



Next two are after I buffed it a bit and touched up the bad parts. Now it's fine from a few feet away again

I can't even imagine how I would react if I came out to see my car keyed.

I would be ready to bash someones head in that's all I know. Sorry you have to go through that, your sedan is pristine . Too bad I never saw you driving around . If you are ever in the Richfield Bloomington area keep an eye out for a lowered e46 m3 or red e30 ... That's me

Just a couple pics that my friend / dent guy sent me today. I ended up getting free indoor storage for the entire winter too, since the car just sat in the shop the entire time.

So at this point it's pretty much 100% scuffed and ready for primer. All the dents I've acquired over the past few years are gone now, and the whole car will be wet sanded with 3000 grit after paint. We're doing the fender, door, door, quarter, and front bumper. I wanted to do the hood and mirrors too, but I figured my money would be better spent elsewhere..

Your car makes me realize 3 things. 1, Seafoam Green is my favorite E46 color. 2, your M-Tech rear makes me realize how ugly the base rear bumper is. And 3, 19's really do look best on a sedan.

Car is absolutely on point.

In to see minty body work and paint.
