SUXG4S - E46 M3

Recommended Posts

Well I just had my resonators installed, and they pretty much reverse all the bad sound that comes from being catless. Still a bit more aggressive than before, but in a good way. It's that nice classic straight-6 engine sound.

Should work well for your M3 too :) Maybe search for some videos online, I'll bet others have done the same and recorded it.

Sweet, im going to run without for a few weeks, if my ears don't stop bleeding i will throw in a single resonator to see what that does.  Cheers.

Have been playing around with BMWFlash and Ecuworx software, man its amazing what the community has put together out there.  Ive flashed the DME to enable shift lights like the CSL, disabled cat warmup, cat protection and tried the build journal burble overrun - stage 1 and 3, all this for about $30 worth of software and a $20 cable.  Plus i can put it back to stock anytime.  Worth a look if you have an E46 M3

If you are using BMWFlash just remember the dme will take a maximum of roughly 30 flashes before it locks up and stops flashing.

When MSSFlash was still around, till about two weeks ago, the tool used to be able to clear the flash counter again. But now it’s gone and no longer (thank goodness!! Can’t even count the number of times I’ve had to fix a dme because of that software) you are sh*t out of luck so to speak once you hit that flash counter.

Brought a set of 17" 335 M Sport Rims to have a bit of fun with, reducing the rolling circumference will also help with torque :D  Photos might be a give away as to what happened next :lol:

Had a great time at Powercruise Taupo back in Nov, 100's of cars various types and having the opportunity to roll race down the straight was pretty cool.  Spent most of the time hunting GTR's.  Being first time on the track with the M3 meant i was also able to get a good feel for the car and it highlighted an issue with understeer, the 225's on the front aren't a cheap tyre but theres simply not enough grip, im going to have to sort that out.  Had a ride in a series winning drift car too, that was quite the experience, thing was violent!  Interesting event in your interested in cars of all types.

I tried stage 1 and 3 of the burble over run, while it sounds cool on lift off and downshifts i would also backfire when upshifting, i found this annoying and almost as if it was slowing the engine, so i removed it.  Just running the shift lights, sports memory mode now.  6 flashes in total, 24 to go :-)
