I’ve written up some pretty nice E46 M3s recently, and today is no exception. This one is a bit different than last week’s low mileage Phoenix Yellow example; it, too has CSL-style wheels and trunk, but a custom color and Dinan supercharger help to set it apart. Indeed, it seems that this well-optioned 2004 model has really had a fair amount of money spent bringing it to the next level of performance. Dinan bits top the highlights, with suspension, exhaust, gears, cooling and of course the supercharger kit. It’s an impressive bit of kit:

The E28 M5 is seemingly following in the E30 M3′s footsteps as the next hot commodity in the semi-vintage BMW game. If you want a lot of the M5 look at a discount, a 535i such as this is the next best thing. We featured this car back in November of last year and it is back up for sale at no reserve with a few hundred miles more on the clock.

There are some pretty distinct tuning periods, such that you can generally peg the time frame that a car was modified if it was “cutting edge”. For example, when I saw this 2002Ti pop up on eBay, I immediately thought it was a late 80s/early 90s modification. Most of that, to be fair, came from the dated wheels, but the boxy styling, attempt to update the grill and paint scheme just said to me that M.C. Hammer may have been playing in the background when this car was revised. And like early modified cars and even more recent examples, dated mods sometimes make a bit of a mess – and this car certainly looks dated to me. Despite that I think there’s still a lot to like here; the base is a clean 2002Ti, the box-flares aren’t horrible and inside there are some great Recaros and a Zender wheel. What would you do with the rest?
