Fuck. And that is one reason why I never got a bmw...I wanted a e30 m3 soo bad...saw prices for mods and I thought my eyes were going to pop out of my head. 2k for exhaust, 7k+ for basic blower/turbo applications, suspension was bad. Fuck that. And that is one reason why I love my car....We don't have the vette tax on our parts lol.

i dont know where you were looking, but when i was about to buy an e36 m3, the prices were only 20-30 bucks higher than dc5 parts.

I think it was Dinan stuff.

3 Series*::*M3 (E46) 2001-2006*::*Engine Tuning

That shit is expensive man.
well what do you think, parts are going to be cheap for a car that was originally $60k? You are lucky to get a used e46 M3 for less than $25k

I was referring to an e36, which is the prior generation. I looked up suspension components.

heres an example.. d2 coilovers for a civic: $812 on ebay.. d2 coilovers for an e36 m3: $975 from a retailer.

not too much of a difference there.

Bmw 3-Series 92-98 E36 D2 Coilovers (D2-B11)

True True. Like FAST for lsx motors...1200 for an intake mani, 3-400 for TB. And I miss read...I thought you said e46, not e36. 36 parts *should* be cheaper. But when it comes to parts...of course you could buy the cheap shit (Like I did on my budget build), or you can get the proven parts. Ebay header vs koos stainless LTS. $400 vs $800. Cheap ass $300 catback, or a Corsa which is now $1200. Proven parts will cost more. I know if I had the coin on a e46, you better believe some of the best parts are going on it. Same if I had a NSX or a legit ITR.

Thats kinda how I am. I got used parts for the exhaust, but for the valvetrain....I dont skimp on the vitals. I will eventually buy the quality stuff (full stainless exhaust, the FAST mani when I do my stroker, FISKE or iForged wheels), but as of right now....I am a broke college kid, so I got to go cheap lol.

:lmao reminds me of my friend who boosted his gsr. he ran out of money and needed a mani so he got an ssautoshit manifold. it broke no more than a week after he installed it while he was tuning it on the street with uberdata, which caused the oil line to bind and leak, which in turn sprayed oil all over the turbo and manifold, caught fire, and melted part of his CF hood :lol

:lmao

Stainless ftw. If I were to build a honda (eventually), I'll run that. I know they are cheap, I just didn't know how long they last.

Enjoy...iForged are around 3100 a set, depending on sizes, style, ect. Figure $500+ a piece for 15s or 16s. My friend has iForged Areos in 17s with 315s on the back...3100, and one got damaged when his T/A was totaled. He sent it to get repaired, instead of buying new shit. The CCWs I want are like 700 a rim, and same with the HREs.
