Let 's agree to disagree on the looks of this vehicle. Comes down to personnel choice for me it looks like any other coupe or sedan from the front. The Ti shape is a stand out and made it a feature of this model in the e46 range along with the sport variant just made it look better.

If anyone asks, instead of saying you replaced the front end, just say you took a sedan and chopped the end off cuz you prefer the look of hatchbacks. That will raise some eyebrows for sure.:ph34r:

Same as stock heat range for the spark plugs?

YES! Well done Brent!!!

 Do you think the overflow tank will last with the supercharger sitting right next to it?

shoudl be ok not much heat in front of the charger ,

except for the extra heat in the engine coolant that might make it explode
