I see. Not quite as easy as sticking on some tips.

What did you notice with that muffler over stock (power, sound)?

He has the same muffler I have but smaller tips. The sound is beautiful but there is no power gain.

You can sort of get an idea of the sound here. This is when my car was still an automatic. Although you'll hear the forced air coming through the exhaust when I go by.

Tony,

Nice looking and very clean car!!! Looks like you power buffed and waxed your engine

How do you like the M6 wheels? I've been tempted but wasn't sure how they would look on an E46. Those 18"?

Post a couple shots from further away, please.
