Phone pic. No it's all stock other than wheels and front m3. Are you talking about where it meets the fender?

You need a camera with red-eye reduction.

Various mountains here in CO: Mt. Evans, Lookout mountain, Independence pass, the last one is a parking garage shot from a local e46 meet.

Its a blast to drive through the mountains here during fall. But winter is a totally different story.

Thanks!. 363/ 280-290 torque. Quick from 0-100 or so. 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear plenty of torque. 4th and 5th? not so much. My Centrifugal supercharger is more for top end speed rather than torque. Although all I was trying to do is build a car that can get quickly out of cornering and that's what it does.

I keep up with E9x M3's. A stock E46 M3 without boost has no chance against me tbh.
make sure you read the description of the video lol. It's running a lot better these days. I need to get some more videos tbh. A lot of people on here have been wanting a some.
