M3 clone
What's up? been off the site for a while, couldn't log back in as my old user name ctchirica. Anyway got rid of my E30 project before i could finish the m50 engine swap, but the price i sold the car for was three times more than what i bought it for. This freed up some cash to start my new project which is a 94 325is to M3 conversion. I have the fornt and rear suspension crossmembers, struts, sway bars, engine, trans, computer (ecu), harness, dash cluster, and am currently working on a body kit. I'm not sure if i want just the M3 look, or a full reiger, or hamann kit. I will try to upload pics. as the project progresses. The reason for the swap is i bought a totalled 96 M3 that had frame damage for $4,500, and i picked up the 94 325is at auction for $2,800 with some interior damage and minor electrical problems. the 94 325is is a clean title and the totalled M3 is a salvage. The interior of the is has already been re-upholsterd in black leather and grey suede. This was my first step because the door panels were falling off, and the seats were ripped. I intend to drive the car as a daily driver, so i addressed the interior issue first. I'm looking forward to some constructive feed back. Thanks CT!

how much money have you spent total so far? on both the 325is and the m3 parts?

It cost me over $10K+ to do a 325is swap to an M3 conversion. M3 engine, drivetrain, subframe, tranny, and all labor was not cheap. Hopefully, you can wrench it yourself.
