Robb, good point on the kidneys. I'll switch back and see what it looks like with the smoked headlights. No new pics but I'll post one with the chrome look kidneys shortly

Thanks! Those Hartge's will be replaced shortly as I just got some new wheels that I'm getting refinished very soon as I'm going with an ACS theme now

The Hartge's are: 8,5x17 ET 09(special build) and 10x17 ET 19. Tires are 215/40/17 and 245/35/17.

Keep the HARTGES. They are very rare and supposedly very light.
I had 16" Hartge wheels and they were super light.

Yes, they are light but I managed to find a set of these even rarer ACS wheels that were made for a special ACS version of the E30 M3. Now I'm looking for the strut brace in that pic

The sparco brace is actually the best for E30 M3.
It actually is bolted to the side of the shock tower as well.
And there is no stupid hinges either.

Maybe they are rarer beacuse they don't look as good as the Hartge's and not many people bought them?
I like the look of the Hartges much more.

The sparco brace doesn't go with my ACS theme although I may just keep the Hartge one because I actually think it looks better than both of them. Another thing to consider will be the size of the CF airbox if I decide to go that route.

On that note, grab an actual REAL DTM one ! Not a replica. I know this guy who can get you a Real one. He has a few of them.

He also has the original Recaro seat Joachim Winkelhock used in his DTM M3 !

LOL
In any case, I like them both but we're going with the ACS ones now and we'll see which I like better.

Damn, I didn't know that real DTM ones were still around. That would be awesome compared to a replica.

Now that is an awesome racecar! Sounds awesome!!

Sure, you just gotta know where to look. Iv'e been in this hobby for 10+ years, with or without an E30 M3... hahaha
I think he wanted something like $1200 U.S for it though, also you do know you have to go to aftermarket Engine management system with it, which can get pricey, and difficult to tune, if you dont have any shops that know how to.

$1,200 is not a bad price for a real one. Yes, the whole engine management topic is an interesting one. Since there isn't a plug-n-play solution, I wouldn't go that route unless I had knew that there was somebody local that has perfected the tuning and then I'd just go with the system they use. Having said that, is there anyone local you'd recommend for that?

You can contact jr racing on here. I believe he has one on his Yellow M3.
I believe he has the Haltech system.

Thanks. I think I'd just go with a piggyback system like Maxx since it would make things easier.
