    Looking at a picture of a regular E30 pan and one for an M3 they appear to be completely different.

      i was going to do that modification, to this particular piece, but was gifted the correct part from a close friend
      Austin, honestly I do not. Its "sorta" easy to see where the cuts belong, I seem to remember a mold line almost exactly where the outside cuts go.
      I had my old actual E30M3 version to use as a guide which helped but when I marked the cuts, I remember thinking "oh ok this is where they cut it".
      I do believe the theory that they all start from the 325e part / mold and then there are mods from that base unit.

        Hey Mark,
        I think there are two versions of that plastic engine screening, an early and a late one.
        The E30M3 pan was based on the early one. I have a 1992 E30 Cab and that undertray is completely different than the ones I have.
        I'm pretty sure the part number I used was something really pedestrian like an 85 325e.

        As I posted earlier there is a good thread on this (or a few informative posts in a thread).
        I immediately ordered two and made the cuts and have two new ones in my street car and my race car.
        I think when I bought those basic E30 ones they were around ~$60

          Here are pictures of the differences I am referring to. ASSUMING Turner has the correct picture for a 325i belly pan, you can see it is completely different that the belly pan for an M3.

          I believe these pictures are close to the same perspective. This leads me to believe that the 325i pan, while it may be able to be fitted, is not correct for my application.

          My search continues . . .

          Thanks,

            looks like that is a late 325i screening, '88 and later. 84-87 325e is totally different.

              Yes, I chose a MFG date of 5/1990 in Realoem.com - same as my car.

              If I use an earlier date Realoem shows part number 51711943106. Here is a picture (slightly different perspective):

              I can see where this one might work.

                  Cheers.

                  Do you guys still have one available?
                  I'm also looking to replace mine.
