    started to gather more and more parts to finish up the car lately...mtechII wheel, some cf covers, cf sunroof, cf splitter and a guage pod for now...most important is to get the car out of the body shop.

    Anyone have a good lead on a cf gurney flap?

    yea they are...you want them back?? hahha

    i need to first fix the body, i already have ordered many new body parts and have almost finished stripping the car.

    As for after that, i think i may swap an s50 motor and just build it as a comfort/sport car as my 540 is...im not gonna hugely track it and chicago roads suck ass so i need some forgivness...lowered, h&r springs and bilstein sports should do the trick, with bigger sways and poly bushings..

    brakes will be stockies but x drilled with some good pads and ss brake lines..

    exhaust will be catless with a muffler, idk which one yet

    interior will have vaders and be redone in all black

    nice ice equipment

    18" m-pars with some good rubber
    and that sohuld be it

    those rims look familiar. Are they 15x7s by chance. Sold a set awhile back. Good luck with the project and as others have asked what are your plans?

    Dunno how much experience you have with E30 M3's, but the S14 is a very robust and reliable motor. In any case if your original motor is in good condition, I'll be in the market for one come next tax return season :fishin: :yeah:


    Keep us updated!!

    thanks for the comments...im not sure what ill be doing with the motor..have alot of time to think about that seeing the car will be in the body shop for 2 months. Im working on it as i have time at work, me and my dad own 2 auto repair shops and as i can sneak away every minute i try.

    i know many are reluctant on the swaps, but i want good, reliable hp and a swap in my opinion is the way to go.

    wheels definatly are getting changed, m-pars is what i want to go with

    Vlad if you want ix flares and skirts, the ones that were on my old ix are sitting in a friends garage trying to get sold, ill check on that if you would like me too

    ooo yea btw my previous e30 was totaled by a drunk driver in a neon, smashed in the r/s and ruined that car...sad day

    I love it how you painted the bumper trim body color and got rid of the door moldings, it looked fantastic and those ix flares were cool ! Gave me an idea of what to do next with some of my e30 projects that I have :idea:

    Both you 540i and previous E30 were tastefully done. Can't wait to see what you do to the M3. Keep us updated on the progress.

    welcome! so what are your plans? are you getting the motor worked on while its out, or just cleaned up? DETAILS!!!! lol.

    p.s. those tires look ridiculous haha, I'm sure you're getting new wheels anyways but they are very entertaining :
