Thanks, I have been slacking creating the blog because there has been a lot to do. But a quick rundown of what I have done so far and will be doing:

  • Interior is completely stripped out, all that's left is the dash and carpet, literally.
  • Bottom of the car is also very stripped, all shrouding, exhaust, driveshaft and transmission are out. All that is left is the engine and sub frame which should be coming out soon (at which point the car will have very little left other then the frame and be washed head to toe)
  • both bumpers are off

Things on the list to do:
  • HPF stage 3 system
  • Stoptech 6 piston BBK
  • TCkline DA coilovers
  • Upgraded zionsville radiator
  • CSL front bumper/rear trunk (ducktail)/rear diffuser
  • Alcantara headliner/rear deck/pillars as well as the center console (by a local interior guy)
  • CF leather coverings on trim pieces (by a local interior guy)
  • Upgraded drop in audio from BSW (not the type to do a custom setup, it's a good sized upgrade that straight plug and play against OEM)
  • Rear sub frame reinforcement
  • New bushings for rear trailing arms, front control arms and the subframe
  • Relocate DSC module to post 2002 location (run new brake hardlines)
  • Clean everything THOROUGHLY, I'm talking every piece of suspension/liner/underbody ETC until it SHINES. Also scrub off rust from any components and give them a coat of protective paint.
  • Replace all worn components (engine mounts/coolant hoses ETC)
  • Upgrade some of the OEM clamps
  • Once the car is complete/broken in I'll need to fabricate some exhaust parts as it will have a wastegate open to atmosphere (loud) I'll re route it back into the exhaust to quiet it (using v band flanges so if I ever decide I can let it back out to atmosphere O_O ) and if it's still too loud I'll need to muffle it.

Huh? I was an ass when I had no money too, money has nothing to do with it, it's that I know, and know I know more then the people who want to argue with me on this forum. You expect me to be nice to people who have no idea what they are talking about but pretend they do? Difference is I don't feel like wasting my time being "pleasant" to those people in order to gain social acceptance.

Please cry more.

Sounds like quite the project, take lots of pics! Interior sounds like it will turn out real clean...

wow awesome build, whats up with all the z4m guys going to e46 m3s? Im in the opposite site of the spectrum, Im currently in a 2001 Leguna Seca Blue with cinnamon interior and about to buy a interlagos blue z4mc.

My m3 is perfectly setup for a hpf build, but i just feel that its time for a new car. I already have 10K+ in mods including brembos, suspension, and full agency power exhaust.

Im definitely subscribed to this one..

HPF will make it like a new car for sure. You should at least consider it since you have a shop in state who can handle the build without a sweat. You should come down to Orlando for a ride, we have a 2.5 shop car and soon the stage 3.

Agency power exhaust on your m3? Do you have the headers? I was thinking of picking them up for my m coupe....any thoughts on quality?

OCHA - You might check out this thread on my local area car afficionado forum: http://www.dfwautoclub.com/forums/sh...=9608#post9608 . The guy has an HPF E46 and has just completed modifying his rear-view mirror to house the HPF gauges and states (in the last couple posts) that HPF is going to start selling his mod as an option.

Yea saw that, I'll put them somewhere else though or leave them where they are, they look horrible but are very functional.

If I was going to put them in a place like that I would just put them in the centerconsole storage area like I did with the Mcoupe.
