    Sean's E46 M3 Maintenance and Project Thread

    So I made the move on an M3. I wasn't sure it was going to be in my future because the ZHP made me happy but I was itching for a manual and figured why not go for an M3 while I do the switch to manual.

    Well, what actually happened was I stumbled across the M3 while looking for ZHP sedans (MT) in the Sacramento area because it had a ZHP knob. I fell in love and it had pretty much everything I wanted. I'll add a couple things to give it my touch, but the majority of mods are tasteful and already complete.

    Here are a few terrible pictures until I get my camera back. Wheels are v718's in gunmetal (hard to see in these pics)

    No my ZHP is for sale. I'd love to keep both since the ZHP auto is perfect for a daily and LA trips to see family, but those are few and far between so one or the other would be sitting a lot. If rather let someone else enjoy and love the ZHP.

    I'm going to start parting out the ZHP this weekend so some goodies will soon be available for the crew here.

    Congrats on the pickup Sean but sorry to see the ZHP go....too bad you can't find a way to keep both. I know speaking from experience, I'm happy to have both.

    With that said....now start posting pictures of your ///M!

    Nice, Sean. Glad to see the thread, finally.

    Seeing those pictures...man. Nothing looks better than Style 135. It's just perfect.

    Don't make me regret my decision man. I'm already having a hard enough time letting the ZHP go. If the M3 had four doors I would say it was a no brainer to let the ZHP go, but it does have such a classic/timeless look.

    I thought about getting new wheels a couple times for the ZHP, but always came back to the decision that Style 135 looked too good. I bought the car for the wheels/ZHP package so I kept it that way.
