like ? not

love ? yes !

it looks like it should, like a beast ! Sadly the style 32 alloys don't exist in 16 inch, 17 is a bit too big for the E21 chassis. But overall, marvelous !

This car is getting more and more bad ass! :thumbsup

I like the idea you went for a e36 rear axle! i was thinking about it, but got rid of the idea very quickly because of the total width of the front mounting bushes of the trailing arms.

what is the reason you decided to cut the front of?

allso nice wheels, what kind are they?

Thanks for the kind comments, adje they are style 32 bmw alloys. i cut the front end off because there was no room in the engine bay once the engine was in there, the engine will physically fit but if for example like you had to change something simple like an exhaust gasket orrr a starter motor or a small leak at the bottom of the engine.. its an engine out job. plus moving the firewall back means the engine can come back and you would not believe the difference it makes to the handling!!! :driving

Oh yeah for sure! Was just discussing V8 conversions for E30, same story, the only way to get close to E30 M3 handling with a lump like that.
