Almost too nice to race. It has a 3.2L Euro motor (I think), I am not a big fan of that, but the rest of the car is beautiful. I especially like the custom fuel cell.

Personally, I think the outside looks horrid. Not the workmanship, just the general style of the bodywork. They did however do a good job fixing it after the Mini ate the rear end.

I agree,the styling just looks gross. But its purpose built so thats cool.

^^^agreed! this is the one that got rear ended by the mini? wow, great job on body work, although they could have chosen a nicer kit.

They replaced the complete car behind the front doors. Did an great job.

Its not a Euro 3.2. Its a S54 from a E46 M3.

Its ok at best...Its a race car after all, function before style! But one thing i sure dont like is the rear bumper (or lack of....):D

I think it looks pretty good. The rear is aluminum and its shape and size has a purpose.
Like the skirts too (for racing), I already asked Ronnie to make me a pair... but that may take a few hundred years*mumble*
And I just can't get over that fuel cell. What craftsmanship!

I stand corrected on the engine, I guess that's why Frank is selling his old drivetrain, I just thought he had a spare one.

Why would you need a rear bumper?
I think the rear, including the diffuser, has a pretty good design in terms of aero.

Gleb that car is GROSS. As Eurostyle Said "Its ok at best...Its a race car after all, function before style!"

If u want to talk about Nice E30's Ive seen, this is my favorite Hands Down.
And its Functional at its best. better weight distribution than an M20 PWD E30.

Mike,
I love everything about that M3 but the engine, now that is GROSS! I don't even like the S50/52 swaps, but that just doesn't belong.
I guess I should have posted it in the track section. I was looking at this car purely from racing point of view.

OK boys and girls, you can go back to discussing chrome wheels and stereos :D

Like i said, function before style! :P But speaking about looks, that M3 Mike posted is just HOTTT, and still functional!

Disappointing considering the thread title. The motor is the best bit.

+1, a good racecar it may be but a nice looking E30 it is not.

Certainly well crafted, and probably fast as hell. Would be an amazing track car.

But "nice" just isn't the word.... it's pretty ugly in the looks department, in my opinion.
