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!

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.
