A guy on e46fanatics actually is doing the conversion himself with an S54/SMG on an E46 sedan. Already about 9mnths into the project and almost done. Pretty impressive, and in all acounts his baby.
But if you're having someone else do it, it's far more cost effective to just buy the M3.

As far as I'm concerned, the whole notion of building something out just so I can drive it on the street seems like a huge waste of both my time and money. But then, I'm a results oriented person. My 323 will get built out so that I can race the damned thing, not so I can pimp a 323 with an S54 in it. That whole notion is just silly.
