Here are some preliminary pics ... It rained and the car is not washed/waxed, so it's semi-dirty. The inside is as clean as a 12.5 k mile car can be....
It took me a while to realize that my wife had set the camera to the smallest pic/quality size and when I realized it, it was raining too much, so better pics WILL come in the future, WITHOUT the hideous front license plate and holder; I almost didn't want to post pics with it, but here they are anyway:

Oh no sorry to hear. Hope you get your insurance money and get to make a nice new M3!. Ahh ok that's probably why I've seen that car before. Could be the times I was down in riverside/corona/rancho.

Update my front turn signals. I went with clear and it was right choice after reading a couple dozen opinions.

Tonight. I need to go back there when my car is actually clean.
Very nice car. It doesn't look to dirty either. Perfect color too.

That is probably one of the greatest rear views of an E46 ive ever seen....seriously it's gorgeous beyond words and I dont normally like red bimmers. Not a fan of the dash area (obviously prefer the e92s) but the ///M steering wheel makes up for it.

Thanks, ftw.

It's a great picture. The photographer nailed that one.

I have an E92 and I do prefer the E46 interior over it. Why? Because the E92 interior feels more detached. Doesn't feel as up close as the E46.

But it's all a preference, of course. I'm glad the M wheel could make up for the E46's shortcomings, though.
