Heres my new baby...It's got a few mods, the coilovers, wheels, power pullies, exhaust and carbon fiber intake are all new. All else is stock.

Glad to be part of the club!

Thanks for the comments. I get a lot of crap about the color, people either love it or hate it. I love it so thats all that matters. I already put an eisenmann exhaust on it.

I've got to raise the rear end up some...the wheels are 19x10.5" and even with the fenders rolled I can't stick anyone in the back without some rub. I think it's also hurting my performance. I'll try to raise it about 1/4" this weekend.

On a side note, I've heard rumors that the only good super-charger for the e46-M3 is almost 25g's installed and tuned properly. I've heard this from several performance shops. Let me say right off the cuff that I have no desire to do much else to it, I was just curious so I asked around, but is this true? They said all the $10k ones produce little power and will blow the motor, this was from two customization shops.

That color looks great in all those pics. I think you should be proud to have a sweet car like that. Congratulations! I also like the teal you can get. It grew on me. Well anyways, awesome car man.

I believe they are 19x9" but I'll have to double check.

*edit* correction, 19x11" in the rear, 19x9.5" in the front.

I got it about 3 weeks ago, drove it like crazy for a week and half, then had it detailed and garaged. Mainly drove it around Fairfax/Centreville. Where did you see it? That would be funny if you saw my car! Thanks again all for all the comments.

They fit great, no rubbing. The rear rubs some even with rolled fenders, but thats cause it sits too low, a simple 1/4" lift will fix that.
