      check out my friends e36 m3 with headers, no cats, and magnaflow muffler. This thing sounds crisp. Not to mention its crushed on style 5's. Pretty much the perfect car.

      Step 2: Replace the suspension with crappy lowering springs

      Sorry I watched the video without reading the OP text....I watched the walk around and after hearing the exhaust all I could think was "Man someone put a lot of time, money, effort, and skills to make that Honda Civic coupe look like a BMW."

      Why's everyone so mad that they wanted their Civic to look like Bimmer?

      Your "perfect car" looks a little rough. I liked the sound of my E36 M3 stock exhaust better than that. I guess this is what you get when you can find these things for like $5-6k.

      Firstly the car is now under tired. That's right, it actually has less foot print than it came with stock... real upgrade huh. It effectively now has honda civic sized tires on a 3200lb car.

      Secondly, it is too low. The geometry has been compromised, so no, it doesn't handle better. Doesn't matter if they're the best racing dampers on the planet, that won't help solve the geometry issue. And I doubt they're very good dampers, but we'll wait for you to tell us what they are.

      Thirdly, the exhaust doesn't sound so great either, that's preference though.

      you guys are WAY too critical. I have rode in and driven this car. It handles amazingly and is very fast. Its a 3.0 and it is much fast than the newer newer e36 3.2 liter m3s. And these arent honda civic wheels??? They are BBS style 5's. civcs dont run 17 inch wheels, they run 15 inch rotas. Its not like he put a wing and a jdm bumper on his car lmao. He lowered it on coilovers, upgraded the exhuast, and nice wheels. Literally it doesnt even rub anyway and can be driven on any road. Its a very practical fun and fast car. Loosen up guys.

      BTW I like the cat picture.

      This is why I'm glad to have a stock, 1 owner E36 M3 sedan that no one has "Crushed" style 5's with.


      Mod away guys.. hopefully it just drives up the value of my car.
