I got so lucky finding mine, only 44 here in the states to my knowledge! It's always been one of my favorite colors

Don't hate the wheels but the one thing that is for sure is that with those, you NEEEEEEEED brakes. (And reflector delete!)

I like the idea of body color in your case, just because it's a rare color.

Seats look great. Very nice find.

Beautiful car and beautiful wheels, I wasn't able to find FIs on E46 chasis either.

Definitely agree with you on that. Currently waiting for my Euro bumper to come in so I can get that done. I'll be rocking the reflectors for a bit. MCORE Innovations and I plan on doing a pretty cool 996 BBK setup, I just need to make my mind up on caliper color honestly.

As for the seats, I love them. The stock seats were mint and I'll be holding onto them but Z4M seats fit me a lot better.

Thank you! I suppose being the FI guinea pig was well worth it. There's photos of a white e46 m3 with the RI-D in Japan but those are smaller and thinner than the FI.

Insanely beautiful car. Wanted FI for my e92, but was scared of curbing them. Ended up going with Volk Ze40

Thank you sir, that means a lot coming from you! I'm trying to get it in the best possible condition and maintain that. I'll be in touch for a 6-speed swap in the next few months. I've got a few more things to take care of before I'm at that point, though!

Much appreciated! I love the ze40, Volks are very solid wheels. The only time I've EVER curbed a wheel was in the GTR backing into a spot in an attempt to avoid other cars I'm really pleased with how the FI turned out on the E46, though. It's such a phenomenal design.
