Default Re: My Estoril M3

Hi guys, quick summary

back in 2010 I bought my first M car, an Estoril E46 M3.
when i bought it it had:
KW V3 coilovers
CSL centre console

While i had it for the next couple of years i ended up doing the following:
Mille Miglia muffler , later replaced by SS resonated x pipe and Race muffler
Evolve Carbon intake
CSL diffuser (rep)
19" VS-XX wheels

some of pics during my ownership











In March 2012, i ended up selling the car. I guess i just got a bit bored and wanted to try something else. i sold the car stock-ish, leaving the coilovers and csl centre console and csl diffuser on. ended up parting out SS exhaust and Work wheels...

Last picture of her, being driven away by new owner


After that i ended up trying a few other M's, E30 M3, E92 M3, couple of E36 M3's and an Imola E46 M3.
most recently after selling the Imola, i ended in a Avus E39 M5, lovely car but just a bit too big for my liking...
while looking at online classifieds, i stumble accross my First M car...the Estoril M3....well you can guess what happened after that



SHE IS BACK !!!!

sitting alongside the big brother...(currently for sale)



Not much planned at moment..

Want to do a few more track days and thats about it for now.

thanks for reading!

Beautiful!! Unfortunately, spacers on the ZCP wheels are a MUST!
