Default A Silver Potato's Journal (06 Tiag E46 M3)

Hello!

My names Henderson and on the last few days of March, I purchased an 06 Titanium Silver (on Dove) E46 M3. The car was mostly stock, but did come with a few mods that included an Agency Power Section 1 and 3, along with Status Gruppe SRS Coilovers. The car had 3 previous owners (me being the 4th owner), and had originally come from Arizona before finding its way to Washington.

A little history on myself, I've owned a handful of cars over the past many years, including a few S2000's, an FRS, and an E36 M3. After a few swaps through cars, I found that they all lacked something I was looking for to find the ideal "do-it-all" car that I was seeking, whether that be comfort, driveability or practicality. With the goal of finding a more practical, but still fun car that I'd enjoy, I sold my S2000 and acquired the E46 M3 a few weeks afterwards. My general goals with the car include swapping the interior to black, and addressing general/preventative maintenance on the car.

In an effort to keep the car simple, but also at a stage that I'd be content with, I picked up a cheap pair of rear 18x9 Style-67's and mounted them. I also adjusted the ride height as it was incredibly uneven and misaligned. I'm hoping to drop the car off for an alignment in the coming weeks once I let the car settle to see if I need to make any other small adjustments. I also added 15mm spacers to the rear to fill out the fenders a little better as well.

Now I just need to swap the clears for amber corners/tails and get color matched bumper markers...
