I have the catted Supersprint S54 /E36 exhaust and Euro Street muffler, could be willing to part with it. Would require sourcing/installing V1 headers though. I haven't installed the setup yet (motivation for car stuff has waned) so it's all new.

Does the group N have wider than standard 60 mm diameter euro pipes?

Yes. I’m being told over 70mm.

Haha that CL exhaust "professional TIG" looks like more like a amateur MIG job.

I do still have my Euro M3 stock axle back from my S50B32 swapped car in storage if you want to use that for the larger pipes on your group n replica

Dammit, I might as well just go to the garage and set fire to my 'restored' '99 M3. I'd even hesitate to call mine 'refreshed' now either!

Great work as always, and thanks for taking GOOD photos along the way...many screw that part up!

I really wish the bozos who installed the RMS supercharger in my car (which I've since returned to stock) carefully removed the spot welded tabs for the airbox and cruise control like you did. Those idiots just buzzed them off with a grinder and dabbed on some Fern Green paint- UGHHH. I found the tabs' part numbers on RealOEM and they seem to be available, but I've got bigger fish to fry on my 6 car to-do list so I'll never get around to that.

Thanks again for the fun read -

Braymond, can you do me a huge favor? I cant find anywhere on the net or forums, measurements that i need of the front of the car. My car was hit way back in 2005 before i bought it, and i think some of the front end body alignments are off a bit. Which is why i have a hard time lining up the nose panel and headlights on my car. They replaced the passenger fender, i have a feeling its positioned too far inwards.

Can you take a measurement from the tip of the fender where it meets the headlight to the other tip? thats kinda where im having issues with the corner turn signals mounting

First time seeing this thread. This is pretty amazing. Has a lot of the same trappings that my car had when I got it.

This just intimidate the hell out of me to bunch them up like this...I know you have done this repeatedly and probably known the nuts and bolt by heart...would love to learn your methodology in sort it out...do you start with 13mm nuts and bolts?
