Jesus, Mary and Joseph! 80 - 100k for the V8 swap?! That's a spicy meatball.

Congrats on the magazine feature, you deserve the acknowledgement after building such unique machine.

Thanks for the support everyone.


- $80-100k for the suspension, motor, body and full conversion. So basically if one had a 135i and wanted to replicate my car. You need an entire m3 to make it.

That is a very nice build! Congrats!

I want to do the same when I return to the U.S. but I'm gonna leave the car looking like a regular 135i. No 1M treatment. Sleeper....

I currently live in Germany and the going rate for the S65 swap is 20k euros.... So i'm waiting till i get back. I will be in California at school in 2016. I'd love to learn more.

if your planning the swap then, then i would go through Performance Technic. It will be cheaper than 20k euros.
