- Rear bumper is the M3 E90 spliced with the E91 M Sport
Just having brackets and bells made for the 6 pot BBK's for the front(yellow) and touch up paint and she's finished.!!
thx 4 lookin..
My car has M3 engine/gearbox (DCT), full suspension(now KW V3 Coilovers), driveshafts, cradles, exhaust, propshaft, loom (rear e91), front panels/lights, full interior (back of back seats taken off the e90 and retrimmed onto e91 seat). Back door panel the same but e90 doesn't have rear speakers so i fitted rear speakers (Pioneer.!! i know bad move).
Took about 6 months (give or take a few weeks) = stripe e91, paint engine bay, fit engine/gearbox/running gear, electrics, paint again(everything), build complete car then programme ecu's/modules.....
Difficult part of the build was rear quarters/rear bumper..
If i built the car from scratch it would be documented.
As for the CF roof, you don't get one on a E90 M3.!!!!!
Hope this clears up a few things.
it has been built over a year now, she needs a bit of paint(just striped the headlining/sunroof out and had the roof/spoiler done black & new roof rails), BBK'S for the front(as we speak) & programme the new CIC nav then shes finished...
Love the car, nice job!
What kind of covers did you use for the headlight washing system?
