Does this mean you are abandoning further development of the E46 M3?

Unless something that makes financial sense comes up we are directing our efforts to new platforms.

Chris,

Good luck with the sales.

You built "solid, good power making E46 M3 kits" and you deserve applaus.

I wish you sell more of your kits, E46 community needs tuners like you.

Chris.
Is there a particular reason you think the e46 turbo market does not make financial sence anymore? There are currently several other vendors developing kits, that must be thinking it is..

I have enjoyed watching your youtube videos, and think you are the one that unlocked the potential of the E46. I even booked flight for Mfest long time ago, just to watch you race Marcus, lol. but sure I will have a great time even if that is not happening!

Just remember, the moment you are in it for the money, someone gets better then you. If you do what you like, and become a master of it, you will turn it in to a profit!

I hope you stay and give the newcomers a run for their money! And wish you luck with your sale!

Change of plans. Somebody (not naming names) convinced me to keep it and track it again. Doh!

Doubt it will be the e90.. Seeing that the f80/f82 m3 is coming out and also the f10 m5 is already ouy.. It would be smart to get a jump start in those and making upgrades.. Single turbo conversion, twin turbo upgrade, down pipe, exhaust, tuning etc... Much more money to made out there instead of trying to compete for the e46... All the things they should have done with the e9x 335's

How ever, who ever makes the e92 m3 turbo will have me as one of their first customers if i dont have my (997) 911 turbo by then
