What if you started with a wrecked 1m? Issue would be finding one that isn't too bad.

This is Definitely a silly question but what is the price you could sell one of these for in the future? Say you got away cheap and * only* put 60k into it, what would you sell it for? For whatever someone is willing to pay?

I know this isn't something most people that do this wanna think about but I'm curious what it would be. Perhaps this is where the wrecked 1m is inferior to just doing the 128/135 swap that wouldn't have a wrecked title.

I won't start any cars on a salvage title. When you are doing a huge build you don't cut corners and get a salvage chassis to save a few grand in the beginning. You need to look at the budget for the entire build and appropriate your funds accordingly. With any notable build there is sponsorship potential and you can save a lot more money through forming relationships with companies and showcasing their products on the car.

I have no idea what any of these 1m clones will sell for. I was made an offer on my first 1series and I declined it. Let's say it was enough to buy a brand new well optioned f80 cash.

Subscribed! Watching your current beast rip around with Matt Farah at the wheel made me think about selling the frozen.. What an incredible build man, can't wait to see how this next one turns out! You're in the SF area? I'm near Sacramento, would love to check out and shoot your cars sometime.

I really appreciate that sir, definitely will. Planning to head down to the coast in about a month so as it gets closer I'll PM you to see if a date/time can be arranged. Thanks!

This should be cool. However, it seems to me like it would be easier to find a 135i to start with. I may be missing something, but it just seem like there are more of them for sale making it easier for you to find the sport trim and xenons. I have been looking into the 128i market and boy it is hard to find one with sport trim and 6mt, not so picky about the headlights personally.

I don't see the cost of this kit on their site? Any idea what it costs for the bumpers, fenders, side skirts, etc?

Basic kit is ~$14k. With the wing and trunk it's $18k.

About what I was expecting. In the render I see some crazy rear fenders... Is that a render only thing or do you have pictures of what they look like out of the box?

I have the fenders- I just didn't get photos of them. The kit is super high quality.

I am wrapping up my e92 and swapping the 4.6L into my first build then moving onto the raze GT build with a finish date of May 15.

Thanks David - the first car has been a real journey. Big fan of apex and Eddie and James are awesome guys and were very kind to let me shoot in the studio. I need to get back there.

My only requirement is white, shadow line trim and xenons. I found the perfect car in Arizona near my girlfriend - I just need to sell my e92 and pick it up.

Oh, you're selling your M3 to fund the project? That's kinda shame as if you keep it, you'd have quite an awesome collection to be honest - two crazy E82's and one bad ass E92. What is your DD by the way? The M3?

I currently own my 1m clone v8 and a dinan s3-r e92. I am returning the dinan s3-r to a 4.0 and putting the 4.6 in my 1m clone making it the ultimate NA BMW and then starting my 1m raze Gt which will be a s65 with FI.

Man, I'd love to hear the 4.6L stroker in person. I love the S65 in stock form, can only be better.

Are you going to go belt driven on the Raze, or putting a snail(s) on it?
