  • FS : 1989 M3 Track / Race Car - 2.5 ++

    Hello Everyone,

    I'll always be a fan of the E30 M3, but for me, it is time to move on to a new platform. I've owned this car since 2003. I bought it from Fillipo Morelli as a Diamondshwartz car basically in bone stock condition and 78K miles. After a few years of basic bolt on modifications it spun a bearing at Mid Ohio and the major work began. In the last 2 years since the rebuild, it has essentially only seen 4-5 track days as family and business have consumed my time. Engine work was done at VAC and tuned / dyno'd at VAC. With very little break in, it made 236whp....complete list of modifications below. 95K miles on Chassis / ~2K on engine

      I've looked at Ed's car several times at his shop, it's well sorted out & well done.

      What platform are you looking at?

        Thanks Mike...I've got an Audi B5 S4 shell ready to go. It will be the complete opposite of an E30 M3 on the track, but hopefully as fun !

          Sorry to see you leave the M3 fold Ed. This car is splendid and well sorted. Good luck with your audi project.

                        There's absolutely no respect for anybody from you is there?

                          This is not an old tired 165,000 mile J-Stocker. This car started out as 78K car, & purposely built street car / track car. It's very simple math $2K in Recaro's (w/ mounts), $10K or more in new the 2.5, $2.5K in carbon box & MAXX A/N (w/out tuning), $2+K for real 48mm TBs., $1K 50/50 header, $1K carbon EIII wing, $350 EIII wheel, $2K (at least & NLA) Grp N coil overs.

                          That's $20K without the car, wheels, cage, paint, tuning & sorting out.

                          You'll spend at least $40-$50K to duplicate this car. Ask me how I know...
