    Tristern Technik: Project E91 M3 Wagon

    Pretty much like what the title says , we here in Taiwan are turning a E91 320 into a E91 M3 DCT.
    Well we started everything from the body panels to engine. The body was the first part as there are no actual parts for the E91 so we bought original body parts off the E90 and molded what we needed to make it to work. So now we are in the second stage. swapping the engine and the tranny. Here are some pictures... this week we are taking out all the wiring and modules out and replacing it with M3 wiring ECU modules and more.... the entire car inside out will be a genuine M3(E91)
    Once everything is working a Gintani Stage 2.5 will be in order for sure!

    We got a E92 M3 that was a write off here in taiwan and took the good parts.. and what needed new parts was all ordered in from BMW.

    lucky the car we go was side swapped so the important pars like the engine and tranny was all good.

    we also swapped the diff. and rear axle to the car itself

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I am guessing that this is cheaper than actually buying an m3 right? what is staying the same from the old car and what it changing exactly? seems like an interesting project and looks like a nice challenge

    Price is not an issue actually, the owner is well funded by his job. he DD is actually a 997.1 TT and this car is his project car. But now this car will be out for a while so he is working on his 997.1 TT now as we speak.

    everything is being transfered except for the rear seats. so its going to be pretty complete!!!

    The past couple weeks I've been obsessed with wagons. I saw a picture of an e30 m3 wagon and it just set me off.

    I think there is something wrong with me. It is strange for a 23 year old guy to want a station wagon this badly.
