    Re: BMW E46 M3: pictures

    I had 3 steps on my own CSL project.

    They were all about saving more weight.

    So I went with the 18" BBS RC wheels which are one of the lightest street wheels that had been produced by BBS:

    Fronts were 8,5" and the rears were 10" wide:

    Re: BMW E46 M3: pictures

    Then I put Supersprint Race Lightweight exhaust on the car. It was half the weight of the stock unit; 12 kg vs. 24 kg.

    Then, I bought Recaro PP seats in leather/alcantara trim with alum. lightweight brackets.

    Re: BMW E46 M3: pictures

    These 2 seats saved approx. 40-45 kg (88-99 lbs) alone.

    Re: BMW E46 M3: pictures

    So I achieved around 65-70 kg weight saving with Recaro PP seats (40-45 kg), SS Race lightweight (12 kg) and BBS RCs' (10 kg)

    Re: BMW E46 M3: pictures

    Correct  The only mods planned so far are some headers and an ECU flash. We will see where I go from there...


    Re: BMW E46 M3: pictures

    That is an awesome machine! I bet the handling is incredible.

    Trip,
     

    Especially with the chassie modifications (Motorsport X-brace, strut brace, sway bars and konis) the handling of the car was improved significantly.

    But the design of the car was old, and it wasn't top quality.

    I cracked rear subframe because of too much oversteer. Also rear suspansion bushings were another weak area.

    It was behind the E46 M3, especially on high speed long turns. E46 was more sure footed and solid. The wider track and stiffer and modern chassie improved the handling dramatically.

    wow pride355, the E36 M3 is one of my all time favorites!  Looks awesome Smiley


    Thank you Smiley

    My E36 M3 EVO was special, and a strong one. It was faster than all of the other E36 M3s I had raced.

    A very good example and my biggest toy. It was more special at those times and I was only 19 which made everything more special about the car Smiley

    Re: BMW E46 M3: pictures

    On my own CSL project, I had saved around 65-70 kg of the car.

    Recaro PP seats saved approx. 40-45 kg

    Supersprint Race LTW cat-back system saved 12 kg

    BBS RC wheels over OEM 18" saved approx. 10 kg.

    I had superchips stage 1 software on the car. It gave 12-15 hp, raised the rev limiter to 8200 rpm and removed the speed limiter.

    So while the power went up to around 355 hp, the weight of the car decreased to around 1440 kg.

    Re: BMW E46 M3: pictures

    That must have been great fun to drive! With headers and chip I should have around 425-430 hp. Will be plenty of fast for me then. I'm only 23 so this car is like a dream come true. 


    Re: BMW E46 M3: pictures

     Great shots ! of all the cars  funny just today i saw a dark gray M3 E46 on the streets an thought how great it looked, then i come home to find this thread opened.

    I do still like the design of E46 M3, today. Especially E46 M3 CSL looks so musculin and handsome with its spoiler integrated boot, 19" BBS RC derivative wheels, flare arches, carbon roof, and ready to attack nose. I really love the CSL and it is my all time favorite ///M car. I'm very sad to miss the opputunaty to buy one when it was released. SmileySmiley

    It was fun to drive. I always love to drive front engine rear wheel drive car.

    But I sold my 2nd E46 M3 the day after I put in the Recaro PP buckets as I had a customer for the car with a good price. Smiley

     Trust me I've had the M3 torture going on for a while, i live in a house practically in the heart of the city and the V-Cool showroom just moved right behind my house. everyday i have to go past the huge glass windows that have had 3 different E92s in the last 5 weeks. the first one was space gray with black wheels Smiley then black, and now dark blue. Its torture i tell you !!Smiley

    Alex,

    Beautiful car  I love silverstone !!

    I haven't seen one with fox red interior. Can you also post interior pictures of the car?

    Only thing I don't like about E92 is its interior style; it is too lux. especially the seats.

    But the exterior, engine, the new 7-speed double clutch, and the overall handling of the car is irresistable
