The e91 m3 conversion has been attempted quite a few times ready.

This has been talked about in this thread:
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...light=m3+wagon

Here's a e91 wagon to m3 conversion. V10 powerplant though (I actually posted this V10 wagon in the thread above):

Here's another e91 m3 conversion. Here's Eugene-TAIWAN's friend doing his conversion:

Did not really have any updates since last year.

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...

LOL. Nice.

Most of the pictures are all in his driveway. You can see it even in the interior shots. Hell the engine shot even has his license plate in it.

Seems legit to me.

Man, I'm more a reader than a poster, but this thing is absolutely stunning, car of the year 2011 here in the forum imo, can't get much better than this. Awesome job. Would love if you could provide some details of this process, elaborate a bit on how it was done, won't you mind?

It's dfny legit, in one engine pic you can see the same 1 series that is parked next to the car in the picture of the rear quarter panel, but who would care to fake such a thing anyhow...

(Although there's a car in my city that is an exact replica of a Merc. E Class E63 AMG, EXACT, except for the engine, which is a 320 CDI lol)

Not everyone likes an M3 wagon though. I was saddened by the reaction of a lot of forum members especially on this thread:
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...light=m3+wagon

I'm also planning on doing my conversion. Stil in the drawing board.

It's sad but it's true. They think it's the ugliest thing that they have ever seen.

I'll definitely PM you if I have any questions.
