Yes it was NOT easy finding a MT E91. I had to search for months before I found one that was MT and rear wheel drive + LCI.


You are correct, no S65.. yet??


There are 3 options for engine:
1. S65
2. N54 with Vishnu Procede
3. LSx (yes I said it... LS motor!)

Opinions? I'm sure the engine topic will be an interesting discussion.

I still have new car warranty so.. hopefully this cosmetic work doesn't cause any issues (knock on wood). I was planning on waiting out the end of the warranty before I work on engine since I only have 30k~ miles on the clock and a year left on warranty.
If you want to outdo every E91 M3 conversion, go with an S85 V10. It won't be much of a "beater" car but it'll be well worth it.

More pics please!!
