I was thinking of a 3M frozen grey film for
my AW.

Inca Orange would look great on yours, but you need black wheels for that

Agree, though painting wheels is no big deal.

Nice car and thanks for the update.

I nominate you for mod king of the forum. You realize that you can't call that a BMW anymore. Nice work.


Cheers.

I don't know. You seem to have more body and interior mods. Although he has the supercharger as well as the RD stroker.

You are all an inspiration.


Cheers.

I have so much confidence in the car and I really throw it around many times with the ECU completely off and boy is this an exciting car!!!!! For instance, take off with ECU off, full-throttle is a crazy snake that smokes those 305 Perelli Corsas!!! Wow!! I have a number of other true sports cars to compare it to and most of these unbelievably feel "bland" after driving the RS46 M3 Club Sport. I am a satisfied customer and would do this all over again!! I do most certainly recommend this car. Please find some updated pics at the end of the older pics below.
Thanks for the update KT.......so sick what you have done. We will need to talk in a few months as I think RD46, and maybe the CS is the way I'm to go (vs. Dinan). Will want you .02 on the RD46 vs. the RD46 CS.

Congrats, awesome car

Cheers,
e46e92

The one on the left is the super boost function that temporarily raises torque to 531 pounds feet, the one on the right is launch control. Hahaha!!! No seriously, one controls the rear window blind and the other turns the front and rear parking sensors on and off.

Yes but your car LOOKS awesome as well as goes Awesome! PGs car, no offence PG,... is well stock looking.
You could also spend another 11k on an ESS blower, then you would have the ultimate M3 ever, well after mine

Bahahaha!!! Thank you again, I honestly donīt know if I will go with an SC, I love the car dynamics and weight distribution as it is and I am afraid that for a track car and so on the supercharger would somewhat affect that performance (i.e., added weight in the front and higher above, bad, bad). Some may not be so interested in pure performance so that straight line performance is much more important and well, lets be honest, the car will still perform very, very well, I just donīt think that is my cup of tea yet! I am very fortunate to have "other" performance cars and have an 800plus hp twin turbo V8 Mercedes CLK AMG, that is my straight line performer. I honestly enjoy the RS46 M3 much more!
