    You guys might be interested to see, I'm getting some new wing struts made from 6061 aircraft grade aluminum

    Some minor updates. Removed & replaced side glass tint (front & rear) with super light & legal 50%, poor tinter had to work around the rollcage. Got a bit sick of the gangster dark tints, they're great for privacy but you simply can't see outside at night (which is when this car gets driven mostly). I need to finish off one side window and remove the rear windscreen to re-tint, too hard basket for now. Old quarter glass: New quarter glass: End result, still looks classy but not super dark. Also painted front splitter again. Finally got around to getting some proper wing mounts designed & made, some renderings from the designer below. The hollow parts will face inboard, should look quite good.
  3. Yes to all, the owner also managed to find brand new matching interior cloth so has gone about re-trimming door cards etc to make them perfect. For what it's worth, this car ranks as one of the best condition e36 M3's I've had hands-on experience with (I was sandbagging a bit at 'pretty good' in my previous comment). Does that make it worth the asking price? Certainly not for me to decide, let alone speculate on; I'm not a potential buyer. And there's absolutely no way I expect to dictate how much someone wants to market their car for..! What I will say is that I hope it sells high; regardless of the generation, M3's appreciating is of particular interest to me..! 🤣
  4. 'Just decals slapped on' cheapens our work a little don't you think 🤣 Yes it's still for sale. Pretty good example too, this has since had a fair amount of interior restoration work completed. Might put this on my stand at Concours next month if you'd like to see it in person.

    Oh great, I heard otherwise; that if they are factory fitted then removing them will fail WOF! Goes to show one shouldn’t believe what ones told, thanks mate!

    I'm a little late to the party with this tune, but finally got around to it. Added shift lights, removed speed cut and selected the most aggressive 'pop & crackle' option as I wish to retain my cats for WOF (or what's left of them). Can confirm that Supersprint exhaust + this tune is something else indeed...! There seems to be a fair bit more you can do with this software, but it's of little interest to me/it sounds pretty risky raising redlines etc. Followed this guy's guide, using BMW flash and ECU worx software:

    Finally ❤️
  9. Sorry I missed this one. None fitted sorry, I never actually installed them as I changed seats after buying the parts from BMW. In fact I've never taken it out of the box hahah

    I had a go painting up the new bracing myself on Saturday after work Also chopped up boot floor & rubber carpet into multiple sections to fit around brace. Factory fresh. Not bad. Swapped on semi slicks and went for a track experience thing at Hampton Downs y'day, was great fun. This car handles like it's on rails now, I'm impressed..!

    Holy moly maybe all those tens of thousands I've invested into this car might pay off after all... https://www.driven.co.nz/news/news/immaculate-2004-bmw-e46-m3-sells-for-135-000/?ref=driven_fbpage&fbclid=IwAR0XPCPuu3R-PNg-yintz5dqRvjiVjpfm-WxpUkbCEhwNIhf_zKZOgnzGug

    No doubt it’ll be a bit different now compared to the last time I tracked it !

    Finished and picked up this arvo, looks damn good That floor ain’t tearing no more. Swapped on the e9x 18’s for a bit. Next up, try not to break anything for a while.. So far in the last couple of months I have a freshly built diff, driveshaft bits replaced and balanced, whole lot of welding and plating and new reinforcement for the rear. That’s enough for a while methinks.
