E46 M3 coupe manual with extras

The objective......To create a subtle and beautiful – but extremely competent – road and track ready car.
The work carried out has been a no expense spared conversion of an already great, genuine, low mileage car.

The simple brief........
All improvements MUST look like ‘factory’ Be subtle, effective, purposeful but not intrusive.
The results of this objective and subsequent attention to detail are simply stunning. Fact, this is not your everyday E46 M3.

An example of this brief is the 20 hours taken to adapt the dashboard to accommodate the roll cage accurately. (as the images clearly show).
The OEM CSL carbon roof was not an extravagance, it was a necessity for Two reasons:
1. The 6 point roll cage would not fit correctly with a sun roof
2. There is a 50lb weight reduction advantage by deleting the sunroof. (At the highest point of the car, this makes a difference)
Although expensive, the Recaro pole position seats on Recaro vehicle specific subframes ( so no holes drilled in the floorpan) offer huge support and are extremely comfortable over oem in all environments and only weigh 7.5kg each vs 28kg for the standard seat. They also add to the subtle aesthetic overall appearance of the car especially with the painted and ‘M’logo seat backs.

I will let the images speak for themselves.
