Yeah kind of, its done by the same guy who does the M3s but this is the only 35 he did. He's done a lot of M3s (including engine) and he always used to call me to tease me cuz i used to tell him he'll never get it right, but he did and the cars run as good as mine (I think). As soon as I put my hands on my car and replace the clutch I'll race one of the cars he made just to prove that he isnt as smart as the bavarians and I am sure my baby wont let me down. I think it wouldnt perform as well as an original M3 but we'll see it will be exciting I guess. BTW do u recommend I use the stock clutch or buy some aftermarket cuz mine is slipping and the car has 53K km, and if so what kind.
Thanx in advance man.

Ms are usually only speed limited in 6th gear. 5th is unlimited (only limited by the maximum speed the gear, motor, and aerodynamics allow). But 5th will easily push through 160 mph.

my top speed so far is 165 Miles per hour. That was in Kuwait last year, and my car was there. My car is back in Seattle now where everyone drives 60 miles an hour and I will not go a mile faster to avoid tickets, and to avoid going to jail if I try to do 160 again.

Nice video, bro. Be careful at that speed at night though. Better to do it early morning or at sun rise to avoid anything jumping out in front of you or cracks in the road. Stay safe.

Its so popular now that there is about 10 of them on the street fully converted some with DCT and some manual which I think never happens anywhere but here. These cars are fully emptied and they replace almost everything (suspension, interior, exterior) and to the casual eye its an original M3. A friend of mine does the conversion and i have seen the process and its amazing how the car turns out to be when its done. I have never had a chance to drive one yet but I think it'll be the same as my car since everything is taken out of an M3.
If you are interested to see how these are done check out my conversion from e92 316i to a Tuned 335i DCT 7 speed with an M3 Body and interior..

Not EVERYONE drives 60 in Seattle But you are right... your car will not see 160mph legally on Seattle streets for sure.

Good point I know it's a lot hotter (it was in 2007 some 49C). The faster he goes the more the air will feel like going thru liquid honey

some deserted airfield perhaps, race clubs must have access to them. I would not recommend it on public roads.
