I have been slacking on updating the forum page.

We have the rally suspension, coilovers, and brakes installed. We had to design a new trailing arm and extend the rear brake lines for the added travel. TC Design built the custom roll bar to e92 GTS Design and he reinforced the rear towers as we are running coils on all corners. Still a lot more to do.

We took the car out as a work in progress on MegaRun. A rallycross 1series may be the best thing ever.

Looks great! In that last picture, is that your co-driver needing a bathroom break? Or just enjoying the view? Or both....

Why would you absolutly need a 135i or 128i, wouldn't any E82 work for the conversion ?

What do you mean? In the US, we only have 1M's, 135i and 128i.

yeah man. 135i's here are often a better project starting point than a 128i. Most 128i out here are all halogen non sport (silver window trim / non-sport seats) and have tan/grey interiors. 135i's all have Msport standard w/ xenons and are readily available.

You guys have 135i for cheap in the US, they are still pretty expensive in europe.
You can find E82 diesel for sub 5k tho.
