how rare is Euro S50ed, 5 lug, big brakes e30 M3 Touring in US? Vlad is building it !

so after building bad ass e30 M3 coupe and E30 M3 convertible the next step was to build e30 M3 Touring.

ever since I saw this pic I wanted to build something similar

Good thing is that I found a very nice platform to build it on, bad thing is I only have one month to do it, this is a project that have to be completed by August 27th - our huge, Megatron e30 M3 meet at Pocono raceway to celebrate 25th anniversary of E30 M3!

Anyway, some of you know this Touring

car used to belong to Alex and he used to track it, I remember racing him in my DTM rep at Watkins Glen and Poconos

anyway, as you can imagine, when I got the car it needed work. I knew that I wanted to build E30 M3 Touring, so I bought crashed e30 M3 shell and cut it for parts

what was left after we were done

sad but at least these parts will be used for 2 future projects !

we got the car into the shop and started to work on it, knowing that I only have a month, dropping the motor out and re-doing the engine bay is going to be done after the body will be completed

fixing some rust spots

doing some custom work on the front bumper

I bought brand new fenders from the dealer and we put them on for test fit

shaving the windshield washers

welding the above pictured tow hook

next step was the hardest part of the build - rear quarter panels

the quarter panel has to be cut in half and metal must be welded onto the door and existing quarter panel to match the wide body contour of the m3 body lines

Man that rear quarter panel with the door cutout is crazy.

Nice... this only makes sense. The next logical build, since all the others have been done already...

Very nice. Wish it didn't take 20 years to load on my phone.
Want to bag your e30? Looking for replacement air ride parts? Mishimoto radiators? Or something else I can help you find? Send me a PM for pricing.
