Much obliged. I'm very fortunate to do what I love for a living and enjoy such fantastic cars. It's a blast to share it with others.

Welp, this is one's kinda long and I tend to be verbose but I will try to condense it. I wasn't actively looking for an E46 by any means, but I search listings from time to time (cargurus, autotrader, ebay, forums etc.) and came across a newly listed cargurus AD by Global Imports BMW in ATL. "2006 BMW M3 coupe, low miles one owner" there were no photos, but it said the color was dakar yellow had 64k miles and that piqued my interest. I called the dealership, asked the salesperson to text me a few photos then wired the funds the very next day. The price was more than fair, especially for how clean this car is. My friends at Wine Country Transport got the car here safely and quickly. I've been enjoying it ever since! (took delivery on my b-day 10/30)

Love it. The ET on the front wheels seems a bit aggressive, it'll probably look flush and fine after the suspension mods you have planned.

It's definitely on the aggressive side, but coilovers and other bits are en route and should be installed within the next week or so!! I was told by so many people that it wouldn't be possible to run the FI, but did the measurements and bit the bullet. Very satisfied so far but once the stance is proper it'll be even better!

The unthinkable happened and it actually rained in Southern California this past Sunday, that put a raincheck (literally) on my plans to cruise PCH up to Malibu until the next day! Dakar Yellow is absolutely fascinating to shoot in different lighting, the color changes hues and looks great! Here are a few shots I took in various spots:

One of my favorite shots from that day even though it looked way better in person!
