Re: 1998 E36 M3 Dakar HPDE Car - Picture Intensive

I'm super excited. I love the S52 but I think getting a "true" M motor in this car will make it come alive in ways I couldn't imagine.

Had a buddy with a spare trans and a compression tool come...

Re: Thoughts on this e36M build

That's a lot of scratch for an E36M. It is my understanding that aftermarket parts do not increase the value of a used vehicle - but I have seen race cars go for more than a heavily modded street car...

Curious to see what they say. If it’s just the booster and you can still source the one you need, awesome.
