Re: What would it take for you to sell your E46 M3?

I turned down a couple serious offers of ~$45k when I posted a feeler thread here. I was going to buy a higher mileage, less desirable color combo for about $20k and pocket the difference. In the end...

Re: Ethan's "Should Have Just Bought a GT3" Build

End result is beautiful, and I've never seen anybody roll over a chassis like that. Another New Englander too

Re: Rear Subframe Overhaul Checklist

I went with new fluid but salvaging it seems like it'd be fine as long as it doesn't get contaminated while it's draining.

Re: Rear Subframe Overhaul Checklist

I did solid subframe for basically the same reason as you: never want to have to drop it again if possible. New rubber everywhere else including OE RTABs. The ride is excellent, if it's harsher it's...
