“Beauty, brawn and style,” that’s how Andy Nissen-Barber describes his 2002 BMW M3. A lot of time and effort has gone into this build, which is evident through the immense modifications. These include a built motor with Wiseco pistons and Arrow Precision rods, Rogue Engineering mid-pipe with an electronic dump, BC Racing coilovers and a custom purple wrap. Nissen-Barber says plans for the future include a Walbro dual in-tank setup, an engine tune for “a little more hp,” racing seats, a “tig-welded half-cage,” and a possible color change.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION:
“The purple wrap because when it was silver, it blended in too much. All the hp in the world can't make a silver E46 unique”
