Looking good.

19" rims are nice "bling" but will detract from the performance of your car (slower acceleration and braking). If you go that route, I hope you like a "firm" ride. You will definitely have a good "feel" for the road

That's not a picture of an E46. Might be half of an E46, so we'll call it an E23.

Finally took a new interior picture..
I changed out the Myrtle wood trim with Eucalyptus Malt wood. Absolutely love it!
Also put in a brand new center armrest, and silver gauge rings/orange sharpied needles.

Very nice. I like the koala-approved interior trim.

A friend of mine has eucalyptus trim in his M3, which also has a black interior. It's pretty rare, and the satin finish is cool. Nice choice (but the section over your glove box needs some adjustment)
