I hope you aren't trying to convert something into a phony M3

LongHairedHippy: Just let him die out. The odds are on that he won't reproduce, so the problem will take care of itself

find an M with bad paint, light body damage, so u can use the chassis, then use the body pannels from another car

well if u want performance you will have to work on the suspension cause the M motor will wieght more than the 1.8. and the 1.8 suspension isnt up to par with a true M

the m3 engine/supercharger set-up i bought also comes with the full m3 suspension...shocks & lowering springs...& the guy has the m3 rear differential to swap also....so that should work right?..if i get the 318 or 325 donor?

just try finding a m3 shell. cause unless you have the m3 lower and upper control arms that have the M badging stamped on them its not really worth it
that and the fact that the control arm are thicker. M3 chasis pull the motor. price should not be an issue!!!
