Making F81 M3

Just started building a M3 touring (F81) using a F80 as donor.
I will use everything from the M3 over to my F31, so this will be a fun touring.

More pictures will come

One has just been completed in the UK - looks amazing!!!

I presume you are using all mechanical parts from the wrecked M3, however I guess you've have to buy new body panels from BMW?

Are you grafting on a pair of F80 rear quarters onto the F31?

Looking forward to see more pics in the future. Hope your build is going to bring you a really nice F31 M.

Feeling sorry for the F80 through.......
