The idea behind this project was to build the ultimate BMW using the best of the best from their line up. Some may argue whether or not the E30 M3 had much to improve on in the first place. Of course, it didn’t! The E30 M3 is and always will be a great performer in factory trim and truly is a classic. We’ve simply used the E30 M3 as a platform to build a whole new breed of the BMW M series.
To start we stripped the car of everything suspension, engine and drive train related and trashed it. KIDDING… we sold it to a few lucky E30 owners. But come to think of it, nothing except a few body panels and interior trim remain. That was the easy part.
E90 Parts, Chassis, Roll Cage
Next, all new E90 (05-11 3 series) front and rear subframes including all associated suspension components were purchased and assembled on a chassis jig to fit within the stock body of the E30 M3. To achieve this, the stock front frame rails were removed and new rails were constructed to secure the new subframe. We even raised and relocated the front shock towers to allow proper E90 suspension travel and geometry. The rear of the car was completely cut, gutted and removed. All sheet metal GONE. Again, we fabricated new frame rails, shock towers, spring perches, wheel tubs etc. to adopt the new E90 subframe and suspension package. Read More
