    As much as I despise the 1er look, the 1M has really grown on me! That color combo with the black rims is great!

    Ditto, good looking car. if i were you i would add these also:

    -JB4
    -DP
    -DCI

    OT Apparently there are no more 1M in middle east and that's sad, I should have got one. I called most dealers in ME and they said they can find one for me for more than $70K. It seems 1M is a better way to invest money than gold lol

    265/30 seems to be right at the limit without rubbing the fender liner. Going with a lower offset wheel may make the 275's an option, but then you may run into issues with the front of the wheel well in tight turn. The car hasn't been driven more than a few miles so there's a chance that the 265's may have some problems (with a +22 offset wheel) once I give it some stick.

    Where in the middle east? I've got friend in Dubai with one that has a habit of shuffling through cars like he's playing poker. Knowing him, he'll be getting rid of it in in a few months and it will probably less than 1000 km on it. His 599 GTO had about 200 miles on the clock before he sold it.

    Thanks for making your thread here. If the car is ever up in the air can you snap some pictures of the diff and how they have hung it. Will be quite valuable for 135 owners who might want to do a M3 diff swop.

    Yes....

    Though, I probably won't start the project until the spring. I was going to go off the deep end with trying to get the N54 up to speed, but in the long run, it will never have that NA throttle response that I've grown to love. Plus it will never sound like this:

    How much room is available in the bay? I know that there have been S85 swaps with the e9x chassis but I don't know/think that the e8x chassis can support such a large platform - however, it holds the same engine as the e9x chassis so it may be a possibility.

    Any idea?
