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
6SPD Manual


Modifications the car already had:
-ESS VT500 supercharger kit, upgraded to 8psi pulley
-OS Giken STR2CD clutch
-OS Giken LSD
-Dixis Spirit Japan handmade full titanium exhaust
-H&R lowering springs
-Carbon fibre lip and diffuser
-Odyssey PC1700 Battery
-AEM wideband and boost gauge
-ATi steering pod
-God awful TSW wheels


Night I first brought it home:






Stuff I've done since purchase:
-HKS SMF filter
-Innovate LC2 wideband
-STACK Pro Control boost gauge
-Installed OEM aux port in factory deck
-Installed OEM leather shift boot and UUC shift knob
-Vortech S/C service
-Vortech 73mm pulley (we're at 3500ft. elevation so it's pretty tough to make target boost on these kits)
-ST XTA coilovers
-Rays G07EX wheels
-New OEM 1pc center caps
-Wheelmate stud conversion
-Project Kics R40 Iconix lug nuts
-Endless MX72 brake pads
-Endless RF-650 fluid
-New Textar rotors
-UUC double shear selector rod
-UUC clutch pedal pivot bushings
-UUC brake pedal pivot bushings
-UUC clutch damper delete
-BMW short shift lever
-Radium Fuel pump kit w/Walbro 435lph pump
-Radium Fuel Rail w/ damper
-Radium Catch can
-Audison Prima 8.9 Amp
-Audison SR1DK sub amp
-Audison Voce components
-Audison Voce 12" sub (removeable in 30 seconds, with custom enclosure)


























My good friend Jason Hoang took some awesome pics for me, one of them ended up on Rays website. More of Jasons photos can be seen at his website http://www.lifewithjson.com










































Soon to be done:
-CSL headers
-Standalone ECU and Tune
-Autosolutions short shift kit
-Different Wheels



Will update thread as I go._a_

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

If you ever want to sell the exhaust, I will pay top dollar.
