    Latest BMW. Budget build matte red e46

    Nothing much going on here, just modding on a budget whenever I have extra cash. Bought the car for $3500, nothing wrong with it aside from red headliner and bad clearcoat. I've had it nearly two years, it's been a great daily.

    Orignally:

    I like it. CSL rear diffuser would really set it off

    Any interior pics with the red headliner? sounds interesting

    No pics, lol. It was terrible. The interior is tan, so it really didn't go together.

    Not a satin finish guy normally. But that looks ridiculously Good. The shade of red is perfect. Wouldn't change a thing.

    Just listen to the sound of the engine. Isn't that the answer? If you don't understand it, it's not my problem". alex zanardi

    Thanks, it's a weird red. Very metallic. It mostly looks peachy in full sunlight.

    It's Halo EFX, similar to Plasti-dip

    OEM M3 rear bumper. They never fit right due to the M3 being about 1.5" wider on each side. That is the best fitment I could get after spending an evening on it.

    How did you get the exhaust fitted? Cut out the spare tire or custom piping? And where did you get your front bumper from?

    Cheers

    Didn't wanna cut the floor, took it to exhaust shop. Front bumper is eBay, $185 shipped with foglights.

    Am usually not a matte fan, but that came out quite nicely. Props, love the direction you took the car in

    Thanks, the original paint was garbage as you can see. It sprayed it in matte black originally and just recently made it red. It's a nice bold color.

    Do you remember the name of the color you used from Halo EFX?
