At some point, I would like to do the M sport front bumper, M3 rear view mirrors, and delete the roof rack. I don't have any time line/immediate plans for it, though.

Side skirts and rear bump I'll likely leave alone. I actually prefer the rear bumper I have to the M sport bumper, and the side skirts are such a subtle difference that I don't think I can justify the cost.

Decide to break my own "one project at a time" rule, because this is super simple and M5 parts are taking forever to arrive.

M3 steering wheel in. Astounding how much this changes the driving experience for the better.



And OE clears installed. Fits like stock :roll:. They're entirely too clean compared to the rest of the car right now, though.

Also, snow wheels/tires are mounted (have been for a bit):

I'm working on sourcing an e36 M3 US muffler I can borrow to test fit. I really want to quiet this car.

In a perfect world, I'd like to do euro s54 headers to s50b32 e36 m3 mids/muffler. The Euro e36 only made 22 hp less than the euro e46, so presumably that exhaust track wouldn't be too much of a bottle neck.

Been looking at e36 M3 pictures-- looks like most of the extra muffler storage space is accomplished by hanging lower.... which I find unfortunate-- my current (stromung) muffler can't be see at all, besides the tips, because it fully tucks up behind the bumper (which I like).









Wood trim is looking much better





Attempting to capture the color/texture:

Yeah, I'm excited for them-- installed the first door card this morning before work.

The dash, carpet, and center console have already been converted to black, so the PITA portion of the project was already done for me

Interior is coming along on the wagon.

Came with the car: blackgrey carpet, center console, dash

Changes already done:
M3 steering wheel
M3 shift knob
grey sport seats to black M3 seats

Just completed:
Changed from Grey leather door cards to M sport/alcantara door cards
wrapped the wood trim in 3M "brushed titanium" vinyl

Owned and will be installed shortly:
M sport Anthracite (black) pillars and headliner
M3 center arm rest (nicer leather)
black dead pedal

Still need to find:
Black wagon back seat. I'm indifferent between vinyl and leather for that.

Door cards didn't come with speaker holes, which I didn't realize was an option (I got the door cards from Europe). So, had to dremel my own:





But it cleans up nicely with the speaker in place:

Battery light started blinking, so I replaced the alternator. After doing so, I have decided CA people have no idea what real car work is-- no corrosion is cheating!

This was the first alternator I've ever replaced that I didn't have to pry out with a pry bar and elaborate force application technique to put the new one in. Entire job took <30 min, and I was chatting with friends at the same time (that were battling some PA weathered tie rods). It just... unbolted and bolted in. :facepalm:

The degreyification of the interior continues....





Kaiv should be pleased with this one.

Wired up the m3 shift knob illumination with headlights and replaced the center armrest with an M3 one (nicer leather).

Fun part:



Not fun: dropped $1500 on a cooling system refresh, head gasket, head bolts, valve seals, pre cat 02s, and a new maf.

Nothing is failed, but I'm going to do euro headers/cats, and that's half the work of taking the head off, so, "while I'm in there" has taken me over again...

Finished off (got rid of) the rest of the grey interior (trunk area, back seat)!

Swapped out the rear eibach coilovers. Doing the fronts this evening. Already MUCH happier with how the car rides/handles. Eibach coilovers for sale, soon :roll:



Switched over to rouge RSMs/reinforcement plates, largely because it means I won't have to disassemble the rear of the wagon (pita) for future shock replacements-- can do it entirely from the wheel well. Plus it gave me an excuse to do the ECS hybrid monoball RSMs on the M3 coupe! Got new bushings from RE, because zero effort swap currently. Moved from the "track" bushings I had on the M3 coupe to "street" bushings for this application.



Looks to sit ~1cm higher than the Eibach coils at max possible ride height:



And got the new black trunk carpeting installed, plus holes for shock adjustment. Looks SO much better than the old grey. Going to get some black plastic caps for the adjustment holes to clean it up a bit.
