Goodbye E46! =( Hello E92! =)

Just picked her up this morning and said goodbye to my beloved e46 M3. It's going to be tough keeping her under 5k rpm during the break in period!

My old e46 with mods:

Great shots!! Like how you turned both cars around.

E92 looks a good bit wider.

With that interior, I think you just became Swamp's new friend.

It's a reflection. Lando had this illusion on his pics as well.

No illusion, it is a paranormal thing! The M3 spirits really believe there should be euro seats in all M3's. Our eyes can not pick it up but sometimes cameras can.

Contrats bro! Very nice.

I too really like your old M3. I think you did a great job on the mods. Very cool without looking boy racer. Curious how you find the E92 vs. the E46? I picked up my new M3 last week and find it to be more refined in every way. My only disappointent is I find the steering to be a little dead on center compared with my old M3.

The old m3 felt much more sportier due its rawness. The new one is much more civilized and refined in everyway. It has really grown up, attitude wise and appearance wise.

Congrats. Who did you go through at New Century? I'm having a hard time getting them down to MSRP.

I had my order placed over 6 months ago. So getting a good price was whole lot easier.
