iM Highlight: Josh Sivadas’s E46 M3 Cabriolet

The E46 M3.

Without a doubt one of the most popular platforms amongst European tuners. First introduced to the scene in 2000, the E46 M3 was offered in coupe and convertible models, featured the beastly (International Engine of the Year at the time) M-tuned 3.2L S54 engine, SMG transmission, sport suspension, and a highly aggressive exterior.

It’s no wonder that Josh Sivadas looked to the M3, as his latest project car. But what more could Josh do to an already impressive package from BMW? Well, in Josh’s case, “Swag” would be the perfect word to describe his E46 M3 Cabriolet.

Already equipped with sporty suspension from the factory, Josh aimed to get this M3 Cab stanced proper with a set of KW V2 Coilovers. And to make his M3 Cab stand out even more from the crowd, How about an agressively staggered set of black Volk TE-37s for good measure? No messing around here.

To give the M3 a little more flow, Josh added an AFE Intake system and Custom Exhaust set-up with rasp eliminator.

“All black everything” is another phrase that just works when it comes to talking about Josh’s M3. Featuring a Vorsteiner CF Single-Sided GTR Hood, Vorsteiner CF Rear Diffuser and a custom CF front lip, any Chrome that was on this M3 is completely blacked out inside and out, perfectly complimenting the Vorsteiner goodies.

Subtlety and attention to detail can go a long way. Josh definitely had the right frame of mind when it came to building his E46 M3 Cab project. Whether he’s cruising with the top down or hardtop on, you better believe Josh’s M3 has it’s swag on and in full effect.
