Yea I know it's not hard but if you're unlucky when peeling the face... You can be as careful as possible and still manage to ruin it.

What? Almost every e46 M3 in the world is a street car, not a track car.

I should be there Friday or sometime mid next week. You work at the Porsche dealership right? My brother's girlfriend works there too. I'll shoot you a text next time I'm up there. Also, you better get that euro m3 back

Picked up the engine mounts from stance factory today. Thanks guys Also found a package on my steps. I've been waiting for this thing for a while. 8 week wait for it to be shipped from Germany. z3m s54 driver sound mount arm.



You can get away with using the stock e36 engine mount arms but the z3m s54 one allows you to use the support bracket for the plenum. I'm on the hunt for an M50 power steering pump so if anyone has one for sale let me know! There was a nice 325is at standard, should've taken it when I was there

Ah that will look great! I was emailing him a while back wanting a wheel like doogee's but he only had them without the thumb rest things up top and it didn't look nearly as nice IMO
