Car looks amazing, but am I the only who saw that the car looks to only redline at 6200rpm, shouldnt it be more like 8000rpm??

just wondering I say that it looks like you did the whole engine swap, did you just keep the instrument cluster from the 318i??

but amazing job again

Hmmm I wonder... which method would be cheaper.... taking an M3 sedan and converting it into a wagon... or doing it the way OP did it??

Very nice job though.

Pretty sure M3 redline increases to 8k once engine has warmed up.

OP, you are my hero

Great job if this car really exist. Why no build-up photos? This is so complicated job that absolutely more pictures needed from the process. You can take engine photos and interior pics from dashboard using normal E90 M3. And have exterior fitted with M-panels just for visual refit, without engine, suspension or other technology swap. Ok, there are some seat pics also with M-seats inside E91...

If this car really exists, congratulations, perhaps the car of the 2011 in BMW community. Sorry if I'm rude while setting some questions, this just seems to be so complex task to be true that I can't believe it without comprehensive explanation...

in an ideal world yes i'd have pictures but i did not do the build, a friend of mine commisioned it(didn't take pics.!) and i finished it, i watched the car being built and i've done 4000miles in it since last year. BELIEVE ME "IT EXISTS", if i look out my window, it's on my drive.!!

What a project. I think it looks amazing. You should take it by your local BMW dealer and watch the look of confusion on their faces lol. Post some videos if you can!
