Default My Estoril M3

It all started with this picture..



Seeing the for sale ad made me fall in love with the car and i had to have her.

after the PPI came back with slight crack in subframe, i was so cut up, but luckily the owner chose to have it fixed for me. very cool guy!
so next 3 weeks i spend waiting for the car to be finished and then i had to get her shipped to the other side of Australia (i bought the car unseen btw ).

once i got her, had a mate take some pics




car came with 19" CS rims (ZCP), OEM CSL centre console, KW V3 coils.

Over the next few months bought a few goodies.
- weighted shifter / Alcantra shift boots
- Muffler (believed to be mille miglia)
- LED tails from JLevi

[/QUOTE]


then i lost my licence for 3 months (due to accumulated demerit points)

while i was car-less on the local forum someone was selling Work VS XX rims in M3 offset. 19x8.5f and 19x10rear. i love the spoke design similar to BBS LM's but that dish is yummy!! so this was the present for getting my licence back haha










[/QUOTE]

since then, i have changed the Unknown exhaust for a SuperSprint Race muffler and non resonated Xpipe. i have also just had the Evolve Tune done, giving me 10whp

in the future i am contemplating getting the CSL replica intake and Alpha N tune, but we will see how that goes.

thanks for Reading

I still think of Estoril as an E36 color and inferior to Topaz, Mystic, Interlagos, and Lemans for the E46, but your pictures are doing a good job making me second guess myself. Beautiful car, man...

Estoril looks so good on this car. I can't believe more people didn't choose it
