I'm curious to see if you know any great E46 restorers nationwide. The only well-known ship that I know that does some restoration is Enthusiasts Auto Group . Lately, I've been looking into getting a M2C, as the spiritual successor to the E46.

Keep us updated and the pictures rolling! Especially love the green one.
thanks for your comments! i dont know any E46 restorer since all my cars have been bought in good condition but would be interested in finding one too, may need to restore one phoenix yellow I found

I heard it's cheaper to find and SMG car and convert it to 6MT, than to just find a 6MT. is that true? Mostly because the SMG is crap and the resale is lower. They are basically the same car so the conversion is relatively easy

Yes it is true, SMG cars are cheaper and the transmission is basically the same on the smg and 6mt, cost to swap it can vary depending on the shop you use, it may cost $2500 to $4000

Impressive collection, great story compiling this outstanding collection, and I definitely agree with you about the E46. I also love the E36, don't often see great examples like yours. Can't wait to see when you add an E30. Enjoy this one of a kind collection.

Great collection. I had a titanium silver with imola red interior as well as a carbon black metallic with black interior. The silver one was particularly beautiful to me. I enjoy pulling up to next to a local guy in his Phoenix Yellow E46 in my Austin Yellow M4. It just makes me happy for the past and present.

thank you, the stratus grey is my favorite too, not sure if I should lower it since I try to keep it fully stock but it needs a drop for sure
