Default Re: My $8.8K 176K mile Craigslist E36M3 Journey Begins

I'm going to look at a local 1995 vert MT in a strange color combo asking 51K... sub 80k miles...... getting the n/a man trans car bug....... I was hot for an AMG GTS as 'aspirational' car...... but since I've enjoyed restoring this light nimble high rev'ing m3 w/ MT... my interests are changing. I"ll drive the c63 for a few days and see if this passes.

As long as the S52 motor keeps performing, and I can track it and mod-it..... it stays in! I've got all the ls swap stuff on standby... 90% of parts are in from V shlag.

Another option is to sell the C63 and buy a 1992 E36 coupe.... non-M..... for low$... and put the LS in that...... and keep the m3 with the S52...... there is a 1992 e36 MT car local for $2500... it's fairly clean, runs, drives and has a few M bits on it. being a 92 MY... no emmisions.... just safety check.... which is a plus for the swap. Plus I can go nuts with weight reduction..... fender flares... race seats...... alot to think about.


.....
WEST - funny you say fun w/o go to jail speeds....... I drove the c63 up to my friends place this weekend to help him work on his 85 928..... and if you hammer on that car you end up way over PSL........ and funny thing since I've been in the E36 M3 for the past year 90% of the time DD it........ I just don't feel as safe in the C63 anymore..... the 500+HP and small tire size and high curb weight just don't seem to add up for fun on the street...... I've had the C63 at speed @ COTA..... but on the street not so much fun anymore.

NATE - yes.. high mlg and rough interior.... but as you can see from this build that does not bother me much...... I would enjoy a basket case 911 project.......

Yeah, I would keep the little M as is. You have put so much work into it, it would be a shame to rip it apart.
