    Story behind the car:
    I came across this car after finding a built m10 turbo for sale. The engine was originally intended to be installed in this 318, but the previous owner never did. I bought the car for $1250, and have spent many times more than that modifying it. It's a never ending project.

    and even though videos filmed this way drive me bananas, I had to include it

    Nice setup! I've been dying to see how those deep dish Rials would look on an e30.

    My 1989 325i vert (sold)...this is Nina

    My 1991 M5 (sold)... this is Veronica

        Actually the paint peeled off there from the glue that was used. It's a shame but i think it's funny

                I actually got more pics, but had to remove several of them due to the gigantic size. I will update the original post when I get them. Well deserved COTM

                  I got a chance to see Matteo's car in person about six or seven months back when he came to buy some AC lines from me- this car sounds amazing!
