My Ride: ///M3 & 330i ZHP
Been upgrading the stereo in my ///M this week

Rockford Fosgate speaker amps and crossovers




Subwoofer amp


Subwoofer enclosure


My mid-range Rockford Fosgate speakers


Power and ground cabling




Speakers being mounted...






The Rockford Fosgate amp is being used with my cabin speakers 300W @ 4ohm load and the MB Quart amp is being used with my subwoofer 700W @ 2ohm load.
The sound output is incredible to say the least Much improved over the stock OE HK setup.

Chuck. You are insane. Everytime I read either one of your threads I get overloaded like going to a bavauto show!

Sketchy errors in your ///M, did you ever have it coded too? wonder if that has anything to do with it? Also, I wouldn't go buying all new coils especially if the car appears to be and is running strong. I had a coil issue once and the f**er basically runs on one less cylinder, it is HORRIBLE, almost undriveable when you have this issue. This being said, I did replace all coils in my 330i a while back, but my wife has her originals at 170K...

Been watching some unreal videos of the F10 M5 walking away from new Audi RS6, Mercedes CSL63, Panamera Turbo S, and surprisingly close to a Porsche 911 Turbo and Ferrari 458. I think you should scrap supercharging the E46 and go big boy. All you'd need to do is bump the power a tiny bit with a tune or something and there wouldn't be a damned thing on the road that could touch you. But yeah, E39 ///M5's are so much more gorgeous.

Mike...as much as your recommendation is tempting, I'll stick to my E46 ///M and ZHP. I kinda like the idea of boosting at least one of them.....either go for boosting the ///M or go for a sleeper and boost my ZHP. Now I'm kinda liking boosting the ZHP more for the sleeper affect

Yes.....for the ZHP..... Part of what's driving me this direction is that I'm completely happy with my ///M just the way it is. There's more I could obviously do but for what I currently need, the ///M is perfect....so that's why I'm looking at my ZHP to mod instead at this point

Well I am already subscribed for the ZHP progress build, I am sure it will be well documented.

Is it me or a lot more people are going F/I?

I got the carbon fiber fog covers but have to shave them in order for them to fit properly. Right now they stick out at the ends because they're too big there...

My best friend delivered his old ///M seats the other night I will be swapping out seat covers from my current seats to put on these since they are in like new shape. Time to replace my worn seats with a fresh set.

Rained so hard today I thought I was overseas during monsoon season....after the rain I got a few pics off the ///M. Haven't touched the ///M in three weeks, let alone detailing and this is how well my last detail held up...





Got my driver's seat refreshed with functioning side bolsters again.....
