Default E46 M3 GTS-3 Build and Progress Thread


Hello everyone,

Wanted to start a continuation build and progress thread for my newly acquired 2002 E46 BMW M3.

The car was owned by a forum member that decided he was done with auto racing for now. It was a great opportunity for me to step into a close to race ready M3 versus going "all out" with the current track car.

That being said, here are a few pictures.

A dream come true.

So far I have gotten it out to the track one time, will post some videos and pictures early next week. Was able to shave 11 seconds off my time in my track car a PBIR.

Will update this thread as things progress and I work my way to getting a competitive license.
