Good meeting you at M-Fest man. And keep those mods coming. If you're going the spring route, H&R is good, but I love the RDSport drop. Or you could just go straight to clubsports .

I would consider carbon fiber reflectors. On lighter cars, the painted reflectors simply stand out too much (I have alpine white). I think with the black grilles/gills/wheels and cf mirrors, it would look nice, especially if you also add cf splitters.

If the pictures don't do it justice, I dread to see the car in person, because then I'd probably have to get one for myself. In some of those shots, the color looks gorgeous. Although that being said, I'm not sure I could live with that in a daily driver, and that's exactly what the M3 is for me right now.

To me, the yellow with the red interior reminded me of a grapefruit. Not my taste (the car, not the fruit), but if you do, best of luck and years of enjoyment with them.

I never really liked Phoenix Yellow, and ill be honest i thought that color combo would be hideous.... but your car is amazing! Congrats on the car and breaking out of the ordinary when it comes to color selection!

Do you have a journal on m3fourm for your e46?

from your initial post, sounds like you are very concerned about receiving negative opinions... so I'll keep mine to myself

Congratulations! Wow, I share your sentiment on it being one of the best colours on the E92. This and mineral white are my favourite!

Different cameras, and different lighting conditions can lead to very different results. There's no way of saying for sure based on the pics in front of us whether the re-sprayed car captured the color perfectly compared OP's OEM paint.
