    Most everyone I know has jumped to the E46, but I honestly love my old, scarred, 90000 mile Estoril Blue shitbox too much to send it down the road. Modifications include H&R Coilovers, Conforti CAI, Dinan Stage II software, B&B Tri-FLo, OEM X-brace, Active Autowerke Lightweight flywheel and heavy-duty clutch combo, AC Schnitzer front tower strut bar, and a custom-built Turner Motorsport 3.46 rear differential with 40% lockup that absolutely makes the car.

    I love that color.
     
  4. The action shots are awesome! Estoril Blue is my favorite BMW color.

    Nice car. I am a BMW technician. :bigthumb:

    CMT© trademark baby! The car was too plain-Jane, I had to gay it up somehow. :dunno: :rofl: Those stripes are the remnants of an H&R sticker that was stuck there when the coilovers were installed, and that was/is an absolute bitch to remove after a year of being on the car. I got the H and R off, but never returned for the stripes, and its been on the car so long now that I stopped caring - hell even noticing - them.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate the favorable comments. :wavey:

    Use an entire memory stick. Seriously. For every decent shot there were about 20 rejects. In fact, the best of that series on the highway is the one below, which actually probably ended up being the best moving shot I have ever taken - with the camera set to a shitty res, too. :sad2:

    I think the E46 is a fat pig of a car. E36's will always be much nicer looking. I'd rather have a modded E36 m3 over an E46 m3 anyday!

    BTW, I like the pic in the rain. I saw that awhile ago on DTM.

    Supratt85: My camera is a Sony DSC-F707, and I honestly experiment with so many different setting that I cannot recall offhand what I used for each picture. I do know the long exposure was set to a 25 second shutter, and of course a tripod was 100% necessary. :)

    OMG - wow i just LOVE the e36 m3 - i know the e46 has the bigger balls but im just a HUGE fan of the e36 - estoril is BADASS - i would have either gone with that or the dakar one i was looking at - but it had front end collision :( - i like that black maxima i see hiding :) - only because thats what i settled for a 2002 Maxima SE

    Your car has been my desktop at times. :)

    Never did care for the wheels though, however, the car on the whole is beautiful.
