    Hi
    Really cool project. I`m building my very own E30 M3 replica using genuine parts just as you did. All i need is 2 doors and a front screen only.
    I also need to change the suspension to 5 lugs and bigger rotors. As E30 M3 are never found anywhere i`ll be using E36 M3 front and either E36 compact or Z3 rear arms.
    Would you be so king to explain to me the difference between the various compact and Z3 models as to which one is best for using the diff and arms please ?
    Compact rear end has a track width of 56.1 inches while the Z3 has various widths depending on which model it is.
    This is where i`m stuck.
    Which front and rear suspension combination is best to use ?
    Any help would be very much appriciated
    Regards
    Antonio

    Hey,

    I’ve been trying to reach you in regards to purchasing the car. I saw it for sale on r3v, and eBay, but heard the deals fell through a couple times.

    I emailed you at the address above but haven’t got a reply yet.

    Thanks!

    -Kyle

    I just purchased a e30 and am looking into getting a m3 widebody kit for it and was wondering if you guys would be interested in installing the kit and even perhaps helping me locate the kit or do you guys recomend a different kit for the car.its a e30 325body.also can you give an estimate as total cost for this and build time.

    You guys need to read and look at the pictures this is no “kit” they got a wrecked M3 and killed it!!
    and if you have to ask how much something like this costs…you can’t afford it!!
    probably cheaper to try to buy an actual M3
