Obioban's 332iT Daily Driver

Standard Obioban's 332iT Daily Driver

So I bought Kaiv's first mechanically/electronically M3 converted e46 touring, and drove it home from CA to PA. Not many other people I'd trust to buy a completely swapped car from, and then immediately drive it across the entire country! Right off the bat, my opinion of the car is this: from there drivers seat, there is ZERO indication that you're not driving a stock e46 M3 coupe. It's really wonderful, and exactly what i was hoping the car would be! This car is going to be my new daily, moving my wife to the e39 M5 as her daily, and will be selling the e91.

Car can be seen getting built, in posts 1-400: The perfect daily driver? - BMW M3 Forum.com (E30 M3 | E36 M3 | E46 M3 | E92 M3 | F80/X)

Cliffs, as I picked it up:
Touring body
M3 engine
M3 trans
M3 diff
M3 subframes
M3 control arms
M3 bushings
M3 brakes
M3 mounts
M3 cluster/ecu
M3 headers/section 1/section 2
Chrome trim turned black
black dashboard, carpet, center console

Fresh OE/Lemforder bushings everywhere as he was building it, as well as the full Beisan VANOS treatment, subframe foam (4x), new clutch/flywheel/pressure plate, and new WPC treat rod bearings.

In terms of "mods" at time of pickup (interesting term when every major mechanical component in not original, but....), it has
Eibach coilovers
Eibach sways
not very good performance friction street pads (why can't PF make a decent street pad?!?!)
Stromung customer muffler (e46 chassis mount points, M3 pipe ID and section 2 mating)

My immediate plans for the car:
-Black leather door cards/back seats
-Black M3 front seats
-M3 steering wheel
-M3 MK60 retrofit
-new OE US headers (I suspect one of the cats is gone in these)
-bunch of NCS expert stuff (quad highs ASAP... forgot how useless stock e46 headlights are)
-upgrade projectors (see above)
-two OE resonated section 1 pipes in the section 1 (kill the rest of the rasp
-M sport interior (anthracite (black) A/B/C/D pillars, headliner, and misc stuff (handles, sun visors, motion sensor covers)
-swap out the trunk area for black parts
-new wind shield (cracked it on the way home)
-intravee
-light weight forged wheels of some sort
-raise the ride height a bit
-do something about the interior trim-- not sure what yet, but I am sure that wood is not for me
-roof rack delete
-snow tires on the wheels that are on the car now.
-get the car aligned
-add a windshield washer fluid tank
-clear tails

Here is the car, as we first saw it (lower than it really is, as our junk is in the trunk and my wife is sitting in the back seat):



And the part everyone wants to see:



And driving out of Kaiv's life, leaving him in despair until he built another one the following week:



And 15 minutes later, my first ever tire blow out. Good thing I was 15 minutes into owning my first ever car with a spare tire, since I still had 2700 miles to drive in 2.5 days....



Which was a pretty severe blow out. Was going ~110 when it happened:



So then we went to the Peterson, because it's awesome:




















After that we really hit the road. We saw very little traffic for pretty much the entire country-- rarely had to go under 100 mph for all 2700 miles, and sometimes roof for well above. There's some pretty epic scenery as you cross the country. Didn't really have time to get out an take real pictures, so all we have is in car shots as we rolled through:



This gas station somehow had the land burned all around it (seriously, all sides, including some of the trees in it's parking lot), but the station itself was untouched. Crazy











Scary looking sky in kansas:





shot through the sunroof:




And home:





So this is paid for and in the mail minus the headliner (going to have mine rewrapped locally, as shipping is stupid):



And I picked these up last night for it:

Wheels are on. Too crappy of a day to take any real pictures.

My other e46 makes up a good quantity of the banner pics on this site, so I like to think I could put this here :P

Just picked up Vox Populi's stock seats from his M3. Heated/lumbar/width adjustment/correct color/5 minutes away





Not hating these wheels

Raised her up .5-.75", and she rides significantly better! Probably better still when it's loaded up.

I have the genesis followed :-) Very good work ... In America, that's simple faith as in Germany!

Your interior is what I'd like my interior to end up looking like!

I wish I spoke German, so I could use the Germany classifieds to get parts that were never offered in the USA

Interesting! Just shot them an email, asking if they'll ship to the US.

Put in one of the two M3 seats. Was shooting for both, but it took longer than expected. Next one should go faster, as I have a technique now

Today she's in for state inspection, a new (BMW) windshield, and an alignment.

I'm remarkable confident it'll pass plug in OBD2, for a car that has not original... everything.

How did you solve the "missing hole for the safety belt" issue?

I assume the seats don't look as good they look at first sight aren't they? Because mine are quite the same except for the grey color

I used the outboard slider from the sport seats I took out, which has the seat belt mount on it.

The seats I took out are actually in excellent condition! I just don't like grey (entire interior will be converted) and prefer the M3 seats.

Did the same, great job!

Well mine was completely black so I found a nice m3 being ripped apart and grabbed those grey fuckers and also the navigation system!
Was a long way to find grey backseats tho!

Had the windshield replaced, and I'm not the most impressed I've ever been. Used a new shop that's near where I live now (moved recently)...
Finger prints on the mirror
tape left at the top of the windshield
V1 installed like this:



And glue left on the A pillar...

Did some ecu tweaks this morning...



Put on the more conservative CSL warm up light values, disabled top speed limiter, disabled dyno rev limiter, enabled sport mode memory, and enabled the smg shift lights on my 6mt wagon.



Set comfort mode throttle mapping to be more linear.



Made sport mode a valet mode, in case I have to let someone drive the car.



Used paffy's mssflasher to reflash it when done, which was crazy fast. <10s to flash it, for sure. I bought it to reset the flash count on my M3, but will be using it for all future flashing on all 3 of my MSS5X's!



M3 seats in



M3forum stickers on

Which Programm are you using for tweaking the values?

Ecu tweaking software was made by an M3forum member: MSS52 / MSS54 / MSS54HP Binary Modification Tool - BMW M3 Forum.com (E30 M3 | E36 M3 | E46 M3 | E92 M3 | F80/X)

And I used MSSFlasher to flash it, because I already bought it to reset the flash count on my M3 and its lightning fast compared to any other flashing technique. But, BMWflash would have accomplished the same thing (slower) for free.
