Re: E46 M3 Black Leather Interior

Not the pad, the arm rest. Or are those not included? The post said armrest (not shown) and showed a pic of the arm pads.

Re: Engine Dead?

I have thought about it but at the end of the day that last 1000 rpm is just too glorious to neuter the motor for and it sets it apart from pretty much any other car on the road. Lots of cars rev to...

Re: Azaautowheel review. Just as good or better then Ledermanz.

Looks great. All the little nuances are not a real issue, who ever looks at the back of the wheel?
And grainy leather is the worst, smooth ftw.

Re: Thicker steering wheel

Those are two different parts of the wheel. The stitiching looks the same on the rim section.

Re: Driving impressions of an LSx swapped e46 m3

Go for an intake. Cant not love that noise. Or, OR, get an e9x. You are free to get what you like but man, an engine swap for exhaust sound is excessive. E9x is a winning proposition.

Re: CSL for sale

If one is spending $115k on a 20 year old car, I think they will care that you swapped out a massive original component. Would not help value, increases value a bit on non csl SMG cars.
