Canadian E46 M3 build
Hey guys, I'm a long time lurker first time poster.
Bought this car a few months ago, and I'm enjoying it a lot. I've always wanted an E46 M3, but these days it's hard to find a good one.
Originally my gf's boss owned this car, he was the second owner and had it since 2005. I did most of the mods on it at my shop for him, and it's been maintained quite well.
2003 M3 Coupe
Bought with 49,843km's = 31k miles!
Silver Grey Metallic, with Black Interior
Modifications the car already had:
-ESS VT500 supercharger kit, upgraded to 8psi pulley

-Dixis Spirit Japan handmade full titanium exhaust
-H&R lowering springs

-Odyssey PC1700 Battery

-ATi steering pod

-Wheelmate stud conversion
-Project Kics R40 Iconix lug nuts
-Endless MX72 brake pads

Crazy awesome, love how low mileage it is!
Where are you planning on getting the Autosolutions kit from? I've been trying to find places to buy them other then through Autosolutions themselves

car looks GREAT! the ONLY thing I'm meh about is the chrome grills/spokes. feel like gloss black would look real nice to compliment the front end. but regardless,
