2011 e90 M3 purchased!

Being a university student i cannot afford to buy such an amazing car new or even slightly used, so i found one that was in a front end collision and me and my dad are going to rebuild it. After almost a year of searching i finally found the perfect one to rebuild!! It will be here next week, and i haven't been able to sleep since i bought it I'm toooo exited . I am going to take pictures of the car throughout the entire build so stay tuned.

Hope you have a fist full of dollars in reserve (if not your dad might), front end collision might have more stuff to repair then you bargained for ...

In any case best of luck to you

Good luck! Sounds like a great project. This forum and its vendors can probably be a big help. Of course this means you can mod right out of the gate. No warranty issues and as long as the car is all torn apart.........

OP Congratulations and we all wish you the best! The "Value" of working together with your Dad to quote an over used phrase is priceless! It will have it's frustrating and costly moments but those memories will fade and the project will live on for decades.
I know.

Good Luck and keep us all updated - we are with you!
