    21 months, 4038 pictures, 108 days of work, 60 trips to the dealer, 30 trips to the body shop, countless cuts, and 4 pairs of sandals later...

    !!!PROJECT MITE46 EXTERIOR COMPLETED!!!

    Looking back at 2004-05-20 when I started this project...I realized how little I knew about cars...but I had a goal...some common sense...some hope...and most importantly, inspiration from you guys, the E46fanatics community...

    I've been here for sometime now...since the original website under a different handle...so I've seen how the board has changed over the years...I just wanted to let you guys know that your praises and constructive criticisms have all been appreciated...=)

    I've sorted this project into several categories:

    1. Debating the project (2 Months)
    2. Repairing the damaged engine (7 Months)
    3. Taking apart the car (2 Months)
    4. Putting in the engine (4 Months)
    5. Taking the car to the dealer (1 Month)
    6. Bodyshop for repaint (5 Months)

    1. 2004-05-20 Inspection - I remember when I first saw this engine...I was thinking no way...I have no idea what any of this is...

    [​IMG]

    2004-06-25 Parts 2

    [​IMG]

    2. 2004-07-14 Parts Delivery - But I can't say no to a good price...I could just sell off the parts and make a return...but that would be no fun right?

    [​IMG]

    2004-08-21 Engine Repair - Head Cover - Then I realized how much the parts cost...even at below wholesale prices...I spent more on OEM parts than anything else...

    [​IMG]

    2004-09-04 Throttle Bodies

    [​IMG]

    2004-09-10 Engine Harness

    [​IMG]

    2004-10-16 Rod Bearing Recall - Then to make things worse I realized I had to do the rod bearing recall...I was hoping not to open the bottom end but now I had to...

    [​IMG]

    2004-10-23 Broken Engine Mount - And of course everything possible was broken even though you couldn't tell on the first day...you have to take apart the engine to tell...

    [​IMG]

    2004-11-06 Iridium Spark Plugs - Then I was thinking...I might as well go all out...AA SC brainstorming...

    [​IMG]
    2004-11-06 Plasma Coils

    [​IMG]
    __________________
    2004-11-07 AA E46 M3 Supercharger - So I went through with it...Not sure if it'll all work...that's way you aim your goals high right? =p

    [​IMG]

    2004-11-20 Oil Filter Change - Might as well...

    [​IMG]

    2004-12-10 Pallet Jack - Originally I was going to have a shop put the engine in for me...then I realized that would cost too much and I'd give it a shot myself...

    [​IMG]

    3. 2005-02-03 Disassembly - The 323i has 40k miles on it...perfectly healthy...got me through college...awesome car...no problems...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    2005-02-20 Coils - Taking things out are definately much easier than putting them in...

    [​IMG]

    2005-03-12 Fuel Rail - This backfried and I got gasoline everywhere...stupid...Then I was stupid for filling up the tank before I started taking the car apart...

    [​IMG]

    2005-03-19 Rear Subframe - This was a pain...especially without a lift...

    [​IMG]

    Then I yanked the engine...with the help of a pallet jack...

    Según leí el otro día, le queda por trabajar en el interiro otros 2 meses. Sólo ha acabado el exterior.
    El tío es un máquina... aunque en gustos... Para mí le sobran las llantas nuevas (con las anteriores era + bonito)y el alerón queda fatal.
    Con todas las adaptaciones, se ha debido gastar más que en un m3 nuevo, que creo que también tiene uno cabrio.

    En fin, será por dinero......

    ha metido un motor de m3 sobrealimentado, creo entender.

    Está todo modificado, es decir, que solo ha aprovechado el chasis.

    La verdad es que impresiona, el tío es un auténtico friki :) Lo que menos me gusta son los faros del coupé. Simplemente sobran, la gracia está en tener un M3 de 4 puertas, con los faros que le corresponden, al menos así lo veo yo.

    Pues para lo que debe de costar hacer eso me compro un M3 CSL que tambien es un 3.2 que le da la risa al tio ese,pedazo friki, pa mi gusto no es nada bonito, es un quiero y no puedo de un M3,es mi opinion ehh;-)
     
  23. lupito

    lupito Guest

    Eso es un quiero un M3 de 4 puertas y si puede, porque se habrá gastado más tiempo y dinero que en un M3 nuevo, pero a diferencia que los M3 son de 2 puertas.

    Pues va a ser que no...
    1º El CSL nunca se vendio en los USA
    2º El quiere el motor del M3 en un Berlina (Como yo en el compact)
    3º El coche esteticamente te puede gustar o no pero no es un quiero y no puedo sino mas bien un quiero, se como hacerlo (Recordamos que lo ha montado el mismo) y puedo permitirmelo economicamente..
    4º No es el primero ni el ultimo en hacerlo ;-)
