Jerez E92 Dual Duty build

I suppose it's long past time to start a build thread after nearly a year of ownership, if for no reason other than to document for myself all the shit i've done and forgotten about. Anyway, here's my E92 M3, I picked it up for pretty cheap last July during the pandemic with the intention of using it as my daily and slowly bullet-proofing it for the track as I go.

The car had 115k and as you can see it was a bit rough around the edges. Some fool screwed the license plate straight into the deck lid rather than plunking down thirty bucks for an OEM bracket. That said, the bones were good and the price was right. I intended to replace most of the parts anyway. The used dealer I bought it from had already sold the car but the rod bearings failed in the first thirty days, Massachusetts has pretty solid lemon laws so they bought it back from the original purchaser and put an engine from a car with half the mileage in her.

First things first, not knowing the history she needed a thorough servicing. Liqui moly, some new oil cooler O rings and Turner titanium magnetic drain plugs-ya know, for weight savings…
Seemed like a good time to get rid of the tattered old under panels in favor of something a bit more robust.

I took about a pound of dirt and clay out of the front cowl drains, glad I got to them before water started overflowing into places it doesn’t belong.

Interested in seeing you bring her back to her former glory. I agree that the bones are good, just needs a ton of spit and polish (literally) to get it looking great.
