Well done Simmie! Yes - the M30 with no exhaust is an epic sound, and a rite of passage for everyone who takes on an engine swap (a bit like the photo standing in the engine bay with no engine) :)...

Note - no close up pics of the right side of the car, only side on.

Seems a bit sketchy - it may have only had a minor accident on that side, which isn't really a big a deal if fixed properly. If...

Sounds like he couldn't work out how to bypass the starter relay, but you do this on all auto to manual swaps (independent of the engine that is up front). There must be more to it?

Lol... if you post up realistic prices, you won't get the "low ballers".

RHD M30 headers in the e30 engine bay are a pretty difficult fit.

For sure! Cirrusblau is a great colour (although yours is certainly neater than mine!)

I'm thinking about adding a few more Alpina parts to mine to turn it into more of a B63.5 tribute.
