You sure you don't wanna do an M3 interior swap and an S54?

Beautiful car! Wish BMW made an M3 sedan.

All that work done to the car and no s54? Not even a turbo/SC kit?!

Me PERSONALLY, I can't justify dropping some serious money for a good job on all that body work and upgrades...and not have some kind of power to back it up. But again, to each it's own thats just MY opinion. Regardless the work looks pretty good from what I've seen thus far. Wheels are my cup of tea but hey, as long as YOU'RE happy, that's all that matters!
