Helping his dream become a reality was A1 Autobody. They successfully fitted the front bumper without fender mods or cutting the bumper. This made Jojo one of the first sedan owners to successfully fit an OEM M3 bumper on a regular E46. Keeping with the theme, an OEM M-Technic rear bumper and side skirts were added. With the subsequent popularity of the Europe-only M3 CSL, Jojo incorporated a custom metal CSL-style bootlid from Technik. And to set his sedan apart, a carbon roof panel was added to again emulate the CSL.

To accentuate the carbon roof, Jojo turned to Fusion Autowerkz for a plethora of other carbon parts, including M3-style mirrors, a Schnitzer-style quad exhaust diffuser and kidney grilles.

Rounding out the new transformation, the popular Schnitzer carbon fiber lip, splitters and aluminum supports were added to the front bumper. Finally, a Vorsteiner vented carbon fiber hood was set in place to finish off the aggressive look, and to keep engine bay temperatures under control for what was to come.

And what was coming was an ASA SK1 supercharger with Technik front-mount intercooler to give the sedan 300hp and 260 lb/ft of torque. However, the only indication that something might be upgraded is the four 76mm JC Designs stainless steel exhausts, which is what most cars view when the gas pedal hits the floor.

The job of keeping the sedan glued to the road is tasked to KW’s Variant 2 coilovers, which ensure the 225/30 front and 245/30 rear BFGoodrich tires remain in contact with the asphalt.

The tires are wrapped around some of Jojo’s own product, namely DPEngineering’s R08 Variant S wheels with an exclusive anodized finish. These have a steplip and are rivetless for a smoother finish. They’re also a generous size at 20×8″ front and 20×9.5″ rear.

Behind the front wheels is a pair of 14″ Brembo Gran Turismo rotors and four-piston calipers, while the rear gets smaller 12.6″ rotors.

With the exterior taken care of, Jojo focused his attention inside. He again turned to Fusion Autowerkz to accentuate the factory details, adding carbon trim to the dash, seat backs, center console, shifter and e-brake.
