I am getting a 95/ 320 for free, :) The car is an automatic & it's slow as hell. *sad* Also the dash board goes crazy, it turns off then back on. But either then that the car is in good shape.
know the qustion is what should I do with it. Is it expensive to do a transplant, ex m3 conversion w/5spd... really if the car is not 5spd I don't really want to do anything to it. I am planning on getting a 2005 R1 in the summer so should I just keep this car as a daily driver. I would probably just get nice rims & drop it about 1.75. what should I do??? :confused:

I don't know if I could sell it, the person givving the car to me would get mad. Plus I have wanted a bike for the longest time. If I can do the swap to 5spd for 1000$, then I think I am going to to that. Then do an engine swap. Thanks for the replies

I could do that, but I like the idea of swap & getting dirty, doing some of the things myself. I think it would also be cheaper, no?

if you're getting the car for free and going to do the swap yourself...it would definetly be cheaper than buying an M3....but, even when you're done, the car will not be the same as a M3...

post some pics of this car

^^ well if he sells the car then he is still getting the cash for it.....but what jeremy said is so true, no matter what you change it will still not be a M
