That's not really an achievement tbh 🤣

Back on the hoist again. Do you like the '70's dragster stance?

Replacing bolts on suspension arms & wheel bolts for cert. The rear muffler looks spectacular

Bling bling wheel bolts (my standard bolts only did 6 turns, not the 6.5 turns required by cert standards).

Stripes removed for a bit, still waiting on my factory front grilles to turn up. Front lip already pretty muched

New factory filters turned up, but I'm liking this factory exhaust + K&N intake combo. The noise is impressive, was completely drowned out when I had the Supersprint exhaust on hence I'd never heard it before. Sounds angry.

It's hard to improve on one of the most perfect production cars!

(apart from the subframe thing) :p

I forgot how good the chrome grilles look on E46 M3s, everyone does them black so it's become cool to do it as stock haha :P

I got my Soarer cert-ed at that same place, went there enough to recognize it.

Swapped Supersprint mufflers back on yesterday, along with the e9x 18's and one of the race seats. It's still half practical that way 🤣

Not sure I had this exhaust installed correctly since new - it's nowhere near as rattly. Sounds good.

Jeebus, do you have to take all the rear bumper and wheels off to swap out the muffler? That's a big job.

Or were you just too scared to risk scratching your shiny exhaust..??

Yep - left hand front bracket nut is nigh-on impossible to get to. So much that the installer of the OEM exhaust hadn't even bothered putting a nut on it..

Besides, bumper removal on these is bloody easy. 6 bolts, wheel well trims, a couple of clips and reversing sensors. 10m max.

You need better tools!!!

I’ve never had to drop the bumper to drop that muffler and I’ve done it more times than I care to count. You don’t even need to remove the diffuser. Easily done by one person with all four limbs supporting the bloody thing and a good jack : )
