Since the age of 13 when I first realized how amazing and artistic something as simple as an automobile could be, I started to dream of what my ideal car would be. Fast, Loud, and Clean are the first words that come to mind regarding my mindset at that age…

The E46 M3 from day one, caught my eye and stayed in my mind for a long time. It was on the top of my list as one of the sickest and reasonably affordable cars on the market, but I honestly never thought I would own one.

In December of 2009, I decided that it was time to sell my 350z and begin the search for my future M3. 4 months later, after going through pages and pages of ads, I finally found what I believed to be the best M3 that fit my needs!

March 2010, right before my 20th birthday, I was fortunate enough to have purchased one of the cars on my “dream list.” ☺

The rest is history…

DAY 1 :

As she sat when I purchased her : Slightly Modded, and undoubtedly clean, but I would inevitably change it around to my liking


.

.

.



Miss my VSXX’s :



First Meet : Literally days after I bought her.



Obviously I had a great palette set before me, now I just had to make it my own.

________________

First change I made to the car were new the wheels as well as dropping the car some more.

Reason being, I wanted to free up some money for other mods as well as change up the look a bit.

Here's what I went with :

VMR VB3 Hyper Silver
19x9.5 +22
19x10 +25 w/ a 10mm spacer = +15
Toyo T1R 245/275



.

.

.

.

.

.

.


I then decided that the interior needed a bit of a "refresh." So I purchased some CF Fabric and wrapped a few interior pieces.

Got some CF Mirrors for XMAS 2010!

After quite some time of rolling around on an OEM + look, I decide I wanted to change my modding route a little as well as get more into HPDE's.

I decided that I wanted to go with an 18" square setup :


I threw round the idea of going with some 18x9.5 TE37's in Mag Blue, but couldn't get myself to pull the trigger. (I think they'll be my next set)

So I did a couple PhotoShops to see what it would look like...





Here's what I ended up with.

Enkei NT03-M
18x10 +25 Squared
Falken Azenis RT-615

Also, in between stages I managed to crack my VCSL Lip, so while waiting for a replacement I threw my OEM bumper on for a while...

Going along with my current route of modding, I decided I needed a more track oriented coilover setup.

I also was getting bored of my exhaust and decided to sell the full Supersprint setup as well. I plan on running the OEM exhaust for a while, a then going to a custom single exit exhaust...

In the meantime, I added new headlight lenses, DEPO smoked corners, and DEPO smoked side markers. I like the look much better!

Update's to come...
