Ok so you all know about my totalled E30 that i had given up on...well i have been searching around for a E30M3....i finally got approved for a loan on one and i went outside and sat in my E30B27 for the last time before i ditched it...

Then i had an Epiphany....you got it right...im doing the un thought of...a Massive Rebuild of my E30B27...i Rejected the loan, after all the work of getting it...

Project E30B27: Massive Rebuild consists of...:

1) Full tear down of front clip...
2) Stretching and Straightening front frame
3) New Power Steering Rack
4) Rebuilding of Front Suspension
5) Possible Rebuilding of engine(Balance, Blueprint, bore, higher compression pistons, and Cam, and stronger crank)Suggestions Requested..OR Big 6 swap
6) 89-91 E30i or iS front and rear bumpers
7) Fenders
8) Paint...

Am i crazy? no one is going to argue that...this is my last dare to be great situation before i get married

Suggestions Thoughts all welcome

M-technik-3 is an unknown quantity at this point
to many other cheaper E30's out there than dumping cash into your tore up car. Buy a good straight chassis and kit bash the two together.

Well I spent 5 minutes just searching so there are cars that have potential. Also if you can see your crank, well that's bad no oil and running is not good.

Supahaole is an unknown quantity at this point
here is my .02

if you do it, turn it intoa really kick ass ralley/strip/track car, i mean all fiberglass front end, big brakes, custom suspension (dude go all wheel drive conversion) and motor work (room for turbo and intercooler now).

like i said thats my .02. remember if you do fix it, it will be worth very little cash since it is a accedent car.

Alohas!
