GTR bonnet fitted

Wasn`t sure about this mod at all, took me ages to pluck up the courage and I even cancelled one after ordering and paying for it.
Seeing as the car gets very little use `tho I think I can get away with it.
Main goal really was to reduce the IT temps and allow better cooling for the `charger ready for when its running more boost.

Looks good Mike.

I have to say Mike, that when I saw your post on evo about the bonnet I really thought you had gone too far, I am not a fan of this sort of mod, but you know what?? It works mate, it looks really good, I think the colour helps it, if it were a nothing colour it may not work as well.

I still haven't got the mag either, I will go and grab a copy tomorrow before it's too late.

I think it works for your car - as it actually serves a purpose.

That car looks gorgeous, I want it lol!

A supercharged E46 M3, have I got that right? Great stuff

Also love the colour, is it Laguna Seca Blue? I know someone who had a Coupe the same colour, suits the E46 better than the Estoril Blue IMHO.

Thanks guys

Porscha, yes LSB. I always wanted an Estoril Blue E36 M3 when I was younger but it doesn`t really suit the E46 IMO

Stevie, your right mate. unfortunately, this time.
