My Ride: Razor Scooter on 20s
i'm in the process of doing the same to the body, not sure if it will be a turbocharged 330 motor or an actual S54 yet but the body will have to be fully custom. i'm starting off using M3 fenders as well but the size of each are substantially different. the front fenders are a cut and paste process, i thought i could shave and cut and remold but its not gonna happen. send me a PM, i'm sure we can bounce ideas of each other. i have somewhat of a plan of action, i already have a bunch of M3 parts... there are a lot of incompatible parts but nothing a little custom fit can't take care of

Very cool, but I agree....why not get a salvaged M3 to save some cash?

Hehe, yea the oxford/kiwi combination is quite special.

I looked at several salvaged M3s in germany but the price difference wasn't wery big. I also wanted a car with suspension that wasn't wrecked. Im going to sell the body or use it for a racecar project, so in the end I think this will be cheaper.

Why not upgrade the suspension and brakes while you're at it?

Why is everyone trying to tell him how to spend his money and go about his project? Ridiculous. He obviously has the money, the vision, and is looking forward to the challenge. I say good luck and I can't wait to see the results. MITE46's project was very exciting to follow.
