  • Keep.it.STOCK!!!

  • The E46 M3 is such an awesome design. One of those designs that is timeless for sure. Those rims look really nice too!

  • where is the follow up video??

  • song while painting the hood?

  • Sam , couple of thoughts generally. First your life would be much easier if you installed a twin post above ground lift. You can get them used for very little and installation is easy. Second as an old BMW hand these cars are very responsive to proper alignment. Night and day. With the aforementioned lift you can get a used electronic alignment system and in 45 minutes really dial them in. Cheers

  • I can't believe you didn't make a final video for this project! We want to see it finished!

  • I like it that you Save these cars

  • Great video spoilt by irritating music !

  • Card board is flammable.. just saying

  • That replacement steering wheel is horrid 🤢🤮🤢🤮🤢

  • Nice wheels, no difference seen on the paint...but CHANGE THAT AIRBAG!

  • Sorry to hear you "lucked out". I hope your luck is in soon!

  • Hi Sam, it would be great it you make follow up videos on this one, the donated 335i, and the Golf GTi. At least for me is, is great when I see the final episode and / or know what happened with the car. Regards!

  • Because of the exchange rate and the amount of cars on our roads comparing to you,some spares is scares and expensive.i like all the tid bit info you give as you progress.

  • I like the height and the wheels look really good taillights are major improvement too

  • After you got that wicked sweet steering wheel you could've left the carbon inserts on the front bumper lol

  • So how much did he pay for it?

  • Ohmygod please freshen up the steering wheel airbag

  • Dont leave those wheels. NO. DONT.

  • car is very sharp

  • Nice Carr

  • I enjoyed watching u rebuild this m3 ..

  • Never use flat black, only semi gloss black, looks way better. Rest of paint looks great. Love your channel dudes.

  • Keep the Koenig wheels they fit the car. Its Hockenheim style racing design

  • Why would you replace the tail lights? They were LED 😂

  • Can I buy it serious inquiry email?

  • Hahhaa you put the top adjustable top hats on wrong, How did No one notice it? 😂

  • I replaced 2 ignition coils and need to reset the ecu on my e46 330. Nothing I've found online has worked. Need some help. How do I actually reset it so the fault codes reset?

  • anyone else thinks this guy looks the cartoon version of president nixon "i am not a crook" joke's aside when you go to sell the car do you have to tell them about the flooding or what looked like a bullet hole ?

  • When r u posting another vid on this

  • Hi Sam. I have HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!! !!!!!!! Read plz I have a bmw 328i. Also e46.. Awesomen car, and had the same problem than yours, the problem started right after i instaled a aftermarket sound system... I then realised that the problem began to occure. Changed the batery terminals and my problem is solved until this day! ¦! 🤝🏻 🤝🏻!!!!!!!!!

  • I know I'm about 3 months late watching this, but someone should have told you at 7:40 you don't have to heat the lense to pull it, just pull it! Also, when's the next vid on this car?

  • The tires look nice on that car I think better than the black one. you can leave them on there delivery. You really look like you enjoyed working on that, not that much stress. All in all the car looks really nice.

  • All that work and paint and not clean the underside of the hood?????? Ehhhhhhh thats half assed in my book! But i dig the car bigtime, good job! Oh and fix the camber plates too like others have said!!

  • Is it missing the spoiler?🙈🙉🙊

  • If it be wonderful during your videos if you mentioned “often “as a reminder how much the purchase price was on your projects, how much you spent on parts, and how many hours you put into the vehicle. Thank you love your videos

  • Thoss aftermarket break lights were way nicer

  • Anyone notice the camber plates are off by one bolt

  • This car is so fire i want it

  • What do you want for it?

  • That ricer steering wheel is joke, stock m wheel is best wheel bmw made Laughable

  • great content but holy ads

  • More e46M3 content please.

  • nice job!!

  • Love this build Sam. Cool car. You unpimp it. You actually fix it. And hopefully finish it. That's what we like seeing!

  • I loved the black part of the hood

  • Gold bbss

  • Your windshield wipers are backwards l to r And the m3 logo is too low But what a car!

  • The steering wheel is fugly. Should have kept the original but had it retrimmed.

  • You should have done the water pump + thermostat while you were in there. I believe they are electric and could fail suddenly

  • Looks good!

  • Looks good!

  • Just subscribed to your channel sam love your videos very informative 👍 keep it up

  • I think it’s great that your kind makes an attempt at rebuilding cars. The gay community never gets the credit they deserve. Your doing good little guy. 👍

  • @samcrac just get new outter lenses for the headlights. They are cheap enough.

  • I thought carbon fibre matched everything😳

  • *I actually liked the aftermarket tail lights that were on it because they looked different not the same as what you see on every other one of those cars on the road today*

  • Fancy lookin Kia!

  • Dude 🤦🏻‍♂️ the lenses pull off of the housing with clips, you didn’t need to oven it like that

  • Your dumb ass is still doing videos Find a new hobbie cause you don’t know what your doing half add repairing cars gonna get someone killed

  • I recently moved from Ohio to Wyoming and had to leave my mystic blue metallic 2005 M3. Watching your videos makes me realize how much I miss that car and cannot wait to get it out here. Going to have to wait until spring due to the bad winters and a different housing situation so I'll have somewhere to put it (took my blue Jeep TJ 2-dr with me). Absolutely love watching you fix this car up. live.staticflickr.com/8732/29414069215_0bc093df6f_h.jpg

  • with those cheesy aftermarket parts, that subframe is definitely broken

  • subframe

  • When is the Rangey getting finished.....?

  • the led taillights are far better and better looking than the ones you put in it also the cold air you took out flows much better than the oem the filter fell off because the clamp was lose also the black on the hood flows with the black on the roof and now the black roof is out of place you ruined the look

  • that wheel looks awful

  • Came out really nice. I'm not a fan of the steering wheel but overall love what you did with it and I think the wheels look great. Nice car Sam!

  • Add a CSL boot lid....

  • If you want to buy Sam's Shelby GT350R its for sale on Cars & Bids. Only one day left, if you want to check the specs visit Cars & Bids

  • thats my dream car over here!

  • 12:08 Look man, I am impressed with the overall speed and quality of this rebuild, but could you not have put some more red paint down on the underside of the hood? Minimal cost (you were already painting it) for something that wouldn't haunt the next owner every time they open the hood.

  • How do you know there is no water in engine

  • I love these vids, I would like to work on cars 2 but dont have the space. I live in a small appartment and my ride always are side parkings of the street. Please keep up the vids! Its the only thing a got about cars.

  • I may of missed some vids on this, but did he do a thorough inspection of the rear subframe mounts. It's the biggest issue effecting the E46 M3 AFAIK. May be a more euro problem though with a damp climate.

  • Bimp bimp ba dimp bimp (mmmmm) ....bimp bimp... bimp.. beemp!

  • I would have thought by now you would have made a small spray booth in one of your sheds....

  • Where do you get your service manuals??

  • Paint the roof to match , will look better still 👌

  • Previous rear led lights were waaay better. It's a pitty they were replaced ....

  • Make sure you get the airbag recall done

  • Why no mention of BC Racing as the manufacturer of the coilovers? As some others said, the camber plates are installed incorrectly. I think you should lower it abut a 1/2 inch.

  • Great video sancracc, looking forward to the test drive soon

  • All the ants running around when you where cutting the box, boak

  • I'm sure this was answered in a previous video, but what is the brand and model of the coilovers? I'm looking for some for my 335xi.

    • They are by BC Racing. He used the box to make the heat gun oven :)

  • Looking Great Sam

  • Love the piss taking between you and Rich, adds that bit of extra flavour on both channels xD

  • What happened to your spraye tent?

  • Those aftermarket tail lights would been fit if car was black and some sick bodykit on it

  • Turbo Mike 😎

  • that steering wheel is TRASH

  • its almost done, so you know what that means! It will now sit in the grass for a few years, produce a lot of rich rebuilds jokes, and then gets finished by Vtuned. Also, sam buys a few more project cars.

  • Looks great leave the wheels look awesome! Nice score .....

  • How many scrap cars does this man have?!

  • Samcrac and WatchJRGo have the same royalty free montage music lol

  • You didn't link ultimate rebuilds channel in the description

  • Wow! Great job man!!!

  • The taillights are the most satisfying thing to see replaced. Those previous taillights were so hideous.

  • Wait, he got rid of le hood?😮

  • holy crap, 7:39 into the video, 3rd commercial interruption. bearing in mind that there was a 2+ minute in video commercial for a home security system in the first 4 minutes. this is bordering on unwatchable.

  • @samcrac 2 things. You have installed your coilovers incorrectly. The plates are supposed to slide horizontally. You also bought the wrong coilover setup. Your camber plates are meant to be offset as the M3 run higher caster angle. You bought the ones for standard E46. Your alignment wont be right now. Get BC to send you out the correct camber plates.
