There has been some changes for us at Buildjournal the past few months. Let me just go over some highlights and then tell you about the big change…

We’re proud to say there are over a hundred E46 M3’s out there that are running the B-Spec Tune and we’re glad to hear nothing but positive feedback/support from the community! We want to say thanks to everyone in the community.

In addition, some of you may know Connie who’s on the team with tune support. Well, she recently picked up an E46 M3 also and so we’d like to congratulate her on the purchase! Oscar also finally picked up his dream set of wheels: Volk TE37 SL.

And finally, I’ve done quite a few things to my car – going towards a track build. The goal was to turn my E46 M3 into a daily driven track car. Something that can perform on the track while being able to drive to and from work on the daily. Although I have a separate daily for the work commute, I still want that peace of mind knowing I can drive 300 miles without any issues. I think I’m just about there. I present to you, Buildjournal V2.0.
