I'm going to keep most of my thoughts to myself except that you should lose the m3 stickers on the side gills. I can appreciate the amount of time and effort you put into your build.

So swapping from an automatic to another automatic? lol

I think it looks fine. Just ditch the M3 emblems and get the custom 335i side emblems and be done with it.

Here's a prove that 335i can be faster then m3. Some always claim even a tuned 335i has no way to smoke the NA m3.

Agree the car looks good and congratulations on all the work you have accomplished. I would recommend removing the m3 badges on the grills and make custom ones to your liking.

Wow thats great torque! Man i would love to see your power in an AWD model, that think would be a beast out the hole and probably run in the 11's.

i will never understand dumping so much money into a regular 3 series. But i do admire the labor that went into this, however.

I don't care if its faster. Fact remains it's an automatic, regardless of what anyone thinks or says.

Beautiful car OP. It's obvious how much work + love went into it! I hope you enjoy it for many years, and be safe out on the roads too. It looks like a MONSTER!

Just a thought. Wouldn't it be better money wise to just buy an M3 and if you really want the 335 drivetrain, then pull and sell the M3 drivetrain and swap in a 335?

Is not it easier. The difference in the price of my 335 and M3 only alteration m3 Look! If I buy m3, I must do interior works, change the suspension, change the brakes, change the exhaust, wheels and so on. I have full custom cars and do not use stock parts.

I don't understand why you feel the need to put M3 logos on your non-M3.

I also don't understand why you feel the need to post your non-M3 (twice) in the M3 forum.

Like everyone else said if you are proud of your car then ditch the stupid m3 emblems because that's just being a poser. It looks like a clean conversion a few issues I have to push it a little bit to where it should be.

For a color so bright and in your face as that you need to have a better stance cause right now it looks kinda strange. Get a better set of wheels with better offsets and widths something a little darker and more aggressive looking the silver looks weird and then go and crank the coilovers down more cause it almost looks like your at stick height in some pics( and no excuses bad roads, to low etc)cause you build a car like this and don't compromise when it comes to their things.

The spoiler really loos like shit right now as it looks like a big spoiler on a stock m3 body. You need a lip you listed one but where is it cause you need if bad and with the lower stance and better more aggressive looking wheels it can look alot better.

Unfortunately I can't do anything about that interior. It looks like it came out of the 90s when fast and furious 1st came out.

Please take this as constructive criticism I respect the time and effort you put into the build now push it to where it should and could be.
