"Downgraded" from 335i to E46 M3 sedan. Yes you read that right.

Hey all.
Had a 2007 335i for the past 2 years that I brought from 100% stock form to 470whp on pump-gas daily driver with all M3 suspension, LSD and few other bits. You can see my build thread here
http://e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=601840
And a sale thread here, that was the "final form" of the car.
http://e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=753892
Car never sold as-is so it's being parted out and then will be either craigslisted or I'll just go to Carmax and accept their offer of 16-17k.
So instead of my car I picked up this car that was built by a good friend of mine, which also happened to race BMW's few years ago and now runs a performance shop. Anyway, enough text, here are the pics

























One of a kind COMPLETE M3 conversion. Everything is swapped from a donor M3: engine, drivetrain, LSD, interior, underbody panels.

Mods:
Genuine Gruppe M carbon-kevlar intake
Genuine BBS RGR 18"
Genuine Eisenmann sport exhaust with custom-welded center piece and single side exhaust
Bilstein PSS10 suspension
Euro-spec headers and euro-spec cats
Built-in Valentive V1. The V1 display is in the mirror in place of compass.

See ya around!_a_

Oooh, someone knows too much!

Forgot to mention that I also code BMW's. Don't have much experience with E46 yet but that is soon to change.

Too much power for the city. Seriosuly it's 1-2-3 and I'm at a 100? Braaaaaake! Plus I actually prefer the looks of E46 to E92. I'm not even gonna mention F30

S54's look so at home nestled in sedans...

makes the ongoing decision I have a little easier to keep the sedan and buy a totaled M3 down the road to convert.. It seems to be pretty straight forward these days, and thats awesome.
