Fix your car if you like it, sell it if you dont.

Theres no such thing as an E46M3 wagon. Just stop. There is an E46 wagon with an S54 and while the former is easier to say, is an E30 with an S54 an M3 now? What if i put a 2JZ in, is it a Supra?
The work and love put into some of these swapped cars is amazing and should be (and is) admired, but lets not pretend its something its not

But seriously though, maximum kudos to what you did. The car community is truly made great by the extremely passionate (and perhaps a little crazy) men and women like yourself who are willing to take a route other than the most safest and most cautious in the pursuit of the automobiles they love. I'm elated to hear that you are back to driving the hell out of the M3, unquestionably now, perhaps more than ever, you deserve to enjoy the car to its absolute fullest.

Thank man, and you're right I am definitely driving the hell out of it and enjoying it more than ever now! hehe check the video in the post below!

Mmmm if I would have taken all the suspension components, fenders, interior, drivetrain, and put an M3 badge on it... why can't I call it an e46 m3 wagon? Just because BMW didn't make it doesn't mean I can't make my own...
