Looks great! The Porsche color is called Grey/Black and the lamborghini color is Grigio Telesto. Audi also has a similar color called Nimbus Grey.

I would love one of these, the E91 IMO is the best looking of the E9x range

An E91 M3 was a missed opportunity IMO

wow interesting. The Porsche Grey Black E91 in the first post is mine.

The photos are old since the exhaust has been fixed for Bimmerfest in May 2013. Just got a BMW Peformance steering wheel and a few changes here and there but the car looks fairly similar.. for now.

I love the Stanceworks E91 conversion also since that particular one is a 335i. I think that conversion is located in Italy. My conversion is the first in the US though.

I believe there are 4 conversions in the world: 1 in UK with FULL conversion, 1 body only conversion in Italy featured on Stanceworks though it looks like he's missing the M3 mirrors, 1 FULL conversion in Taiwan, and my body only conversion in the US.

That's pretty accurate, the SW e91 is in Barcelona actually, they added mirrors and are redoing the car currently.

Correction, I have never rocked fake wheels. FYI the AUTHENTIC 20" LM's are for sale actually. Will be up in the Classifieds shortly.

Awesome colour. The GT3 RS Porsche Grey colour you've used ranks up there for me as does the Porsche Sport Classic Grey (L63A)!

Wasn't there another E91 M3 conversion done in the UK recently to bring the tally up to 2 here.

Its neither... almost positive its the grey offered on the Porsche GT3 RS. Looks very sharp on the M3.

this is very nice, i think there are a few more than 4 in terms of body conversion. manhart racing has done a number of them with the m5 v10 engine (M3 T V10) as well as a blue one which is also 335 Like the art99erformace on the rotiform blq's, there's the mineral white one on this forum also. There's a guy working on a jerez black one which he aims to keep stock looking. There's also a black one with the e92 rear bumper maybe the front also on gold vmr csl style wheels. The guy who owns it name is Buni. They do not take anything away from yours however. Its stunning, looking forward to seeing more of it.

I dream of having one in jerez black with rd sport stradale front bumper, rd sport rs 2 wheels brembo gt bbk, along with some other things

You're right! I just saw there is another FULL conversion with the V8 engine swap in London or was it in the UK? A mineral white one. VERY nice. Plus I do recall 1 Manhart M3 touring, but didn't know they made multiples.

No worries at all. I'm definitely not the first to do this conversion and not trying to make claims at that at all. I'm excited about this project and would love to continue on more with it. I have some things in the works but haven't solidified anything yet.

SPONSORS FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME!! HAHA jk. (but seriously..)

Powertrain has definitely been on my mind. The crazy thing is that BMW JUST replaced my engine, so I have a brand new engine in my car with maybe 1k miles on it. I was fortunate to have it covered under my new car warranty.

I do plan on upgrading the suspension also. I have KW V2's right now, but looking to work on the rest soon as well.

Why'd it need a new engine?

I was told by the SA that there were metal shavings in the oil pan and there was a vanos issue. They automatically ordered me a new engine from Germany and that was installed not too long ago. The car definitely drives a lot better, though of course it won't perform like the N54 or S65..
