Re: Jared's E46 M3 Sedan Swap

Re: Ledermanz vs Coby wheels

He doesn't have a website. He sells through eBay. Message him through there if you want a custom wheel made.

Re: Jared's E46 M3 Sedan Swap

Lots of news today.

The wiring is all done! To install the oxygen sensors for the Euro cats, I had to split the factory loom all the way back to where it comes out of the driver side drug bin.

Re: Found out some pretty neat info on my ZCP.. And an update with some pics

That's really neat!

Man, you can't go wrong with any BMW blue. Interlagos, Topaz, Estoril, and Laguna Seca are all beautiful.

Re: Suspension setup and handling / balance

The lower control arms are cheap enough (~$40 each for Lemfoerder brand) that I'd just replace them instead of trying to bend them back if I suspected any trouble with them.

Euro cats not lining up with section 2

I'm putting my exhaust system back together, but I'm swapping out the cats/headers for Euro versions. The Euro section 1 isn't mating up very well with the stock US section 2. I'm wondering now if my...

Re: Jared's E46 M3 Sedan Swap

It's a huge motivation booster for sure. I just want to get it out of the garage and on the road now. Soon!

Do you have a build thread for your S54 Touring? I'd love to read through it.
