Description:

1988 BMW M3 M

For sale is a custom rebuild of a legendary car: BMW E30 into devils M3 package. The basic car had no damages whatsoever, had no rust. It was torn apart, then I have installed racing parts, all original BMW or best money could buy at that moment. Painted white and wraped with special BMW M power vinyl design. The car was made for GRIP racing, not a drift vehicle although setup for drift could be made easy now with all the parts installed. I think the perfect Grip race car is much more complicated to build than a drift car. Imho

Here is the list I have done:

I have put in a E46 M3 powerful engine, S54B32, with custom Evo tuning and CSL upgraded remapping. Power output is around 385 HP. The engine was taken from a donor car, BMW E46 M3, make 2005 with only 40.000 miles on it. Rod bearings replaced. I have moved the engine back to the cabin for 20 cm, so it is in the center of gravity of the car. That means the car balance is perfect, and the engine has original oil pan with original oil sump. No fear of oil starvation!

100 cell catalistic converters and straight pipes.

BMW E46 Oil and air cooler installed

Sinter racing carbon clutch

Autoblipper instaled for bliping the throtle while shifting down. Can be set manualy or turned off.

Special air flow manifold done by me with piper cross air filter

I have put on a original M-tech2 parts modifyed a bit with wide fenders, angry hood, etc... Which I like much more than the looks of original M3. Why? Because an original M3 should look original, mine is much more powerful and it must look better. So it does.

Wider track at front 8cm, 14 cm rear. 5 lug conversion fornt and rear

AP racing brakes, with brand new pads, and 330 brake discs fornt.

Steel brake lines allaround and new racing Dot 4 oil inside.

Rear brakes from BMW 330ci front set.

Racing wheels front 9J*18 and 11J*18 rear, with semi slick tires: Federal RSR595 245/30/18 front and 285/30/18 rear

Racing suspension: Moton (they range with Ohlin’s btw...) no cheap version.

Racing differential rebuild, all parts are new with new oil, sealing’s, gaskets, bearings, plates... ratio 3,46, 45 % lock, special hard mount to the chassis.

Front and rear H&R stabilizers

E46 M3 steering rack

All other parts needed to allow to modify the track of the car, front control arms adjusters, uniballs allaround, unique camber plates + hard polyurethane bushings known as power flex, rear sub frame adapters for camber and caster settings....

Inside Lumma racing speedo (Lumma is famous for BMW tuning), showing 8000RPM and 260 Km/h. Only 5 produced, this one has Nr.4 on it.

OMP Roll cage

Sparco PRO2000 seats, new, FIA till 2020

Alcantara dash

Added extra gauges for oil pressure, temps and voltage

Sparco 6 point seatbelts

Short shifter

Racing fuel tank in the trunk, holding 60 liters...

External racing Bosch fuel pump

New akku

All in all, exceptional car. The only problem I have, I love building them, not driving them. So I did drive one track day, barley to see how it drives. It drives perfect, in range with new Bmw M4, on straights loses a bit, but braking and cornering, is there anybody faster? Unbelievable grip, no under or over steer, very neutral handling just as I made it go. Of course, you can play if you want, there is plenty of power for that.

The curb weight around 1100 kg, still some room for improvement, like plastic windows and lighter front hood.

Shipping worldwide, to USA from 1500-3000 USD, depends on location.

If you have questions, please ask.

Thanks for watching and don't deny yourself with opportunity to buy European legend car that drives faster and better than most now day’s cars. With this car there is no more fear of loosing value. Except if you brake it :-)
