Yeah, what's a ballpark figure for a turnkey track car like this?

This one listed for $29,900 before negotiation. My shop tells me that to buy a base E36 M3 in decent shape and mod it to this level (and with the care taken in this car) would run between $40,000 to $45,000. Finding one already prepped is great.

That's not bad. Especially with all the content. Some could spend that on mods on the m3

Gorgeous! You'll love having a prepped track car. I attended BMW CCA Racing School this weekend with mine and can tell you I felt competitive in my E36. Have fun!

Congrats on the car! I will probably get one of these some time in the near future.

Interesting idea Chris. My goal is to buy a track prepped car, and convert it back to street legal. Like adding some sound deadening, and a quieter exhaust. This way I can use it on the weekends etc. I won't add the rear seats, or remove the half cage and I'm not planning on using r-comps any time soon. In any ways, I won't buy for at least another year.

Looks good. I was going to say looks like a fall line build before I saw your build sheet.

The car arrived and is being prepped. It is everything I had hoped for. The build is amazing, the quality of everything is great. I am very, very happy. Everyone who sees it is in awe.

The shop is getting it ready for me. I want to make it street legal as I'm not interested in putting in on a trailer. Here is what is in store...

- Adding a race cat
- Adjusting the driver's seat for me
- Replace all fluids
- Check alignment and adjust camber and toe
- Daytime running lights
- New tires on Apex Arc-8 wheels
- Replace the racing harness in matching blue (see pic)
- Add a three point seat belt (to get it street legal)
- Add a Billy Club shifter (see pic)
- Add Turner racing pedals (see pic)
- Blacked out front grille

All else is pretty much perfect. The most impressive part of this build is the incredible roll cage. The quality and welds are immaculate (built by Fall Line) First track day is this coming Wednesday . All of my "stuff" below came from Apexperformance.net except pedals and shifter (Hans, Harness, Helmet, Gloves, etc), they have been simply excellent with service and delivery. Can't recommend them enough!

All the car needs now is a decently skilled driver I guess I will have to do Pictures of the car at the shop...







Turner racing pedals



Gotta have new racing gloves



Harness was expired so I bought these... should look great in the Estoril car!!!



Got to be safe... Hans Sport II



Billy club shift knob



OK, so if I'm getting new gear, a new helmet is in order... HJC AR-10II

Very nice! I had a lot more fun with my prepped E36 over my stock E90 on the track. Wish I still had it. AR10 is a great helmet. Have fun!
