Jaw dropping... you have more money than sense! Only worries would be stability with the suspension holding the new motor and chassis which I assume you have already taken precaution steps in working around.

car mounts and ecu's are standard e92 M3 ones, had to deal with the front panel to accomodate the radiator set, since the e82 front is much shorter than the e92 M3. prop shaft and exhaust were modified. exhaust has been custom modified in the work shop. car complete electrical wiring was modified to make every thing work with the v8 engine and the e82 parts such as head lights, mirrors, i1 series i drive, window mechanisms, etc,.

complete mods cost around $45,000. in Egypt we pay 300% custom charges on imported vehicles above 2000 cc. which makes a 1m cost a fortune to buy here. (more than $150,000 custom charges+ original car price) so we had the idea of having a standard e82 and fitting it with a bigger engine. the v8 dream came to mind since the whole car is gonna be stripped. i thoght the v8 has more roar sound than the turbo six 1m engine, more hp , and ofcourse more challenge. the idea was thouroughly studied and thank god it went perfect.

compared to my previous car (an e92 M3), the v8 1m is very very nice to drive, huge torque, more horse power on top speeds, no lag in power delivery on high gears in low rpms since the car is lighter than the m3. THE CAR IS F---ING STABLE, and plays very NICE in low and high speeds, thanks to the shorter wheel base of the e82. (tail is really short , car behaves like you want it to)

The only draw back i observed is that it has a stiffer ride specially in the rear, also most probably because it has shorter wheel base than the e92.

all in all, i really love the car, i haven't really tried the standard turbo six 1m, but i think the v8 is great fun, naturally aspirated and makes me feal i'm driving one hell of a beast.
the car looks really beautiful from the outside, and my next step will be fitting it with some custom forged 20" wheels to give it the individual look it deserves,

if you have any suggestions on the wheels guys pls do not hesitate to send,

and thanks everybody for the nice comments

By the way guys, the e82 can be also fitted with a (DKG) double clutch transmission v8. that option does not exist on standard six cylinder 1m. it will take much more effort and and money, but i studied the idea and it can be done easily. ( A 1M V8 WITH THE INCREDIBLE UNMISTAKABLE 7 SPEED DOUBLE CLUTCH TRANSMISSION)

My car is a manual since the car is gonna participate in some races and drift compititions.
