          Wish i could afford to do that, Thats a fantastic bit of kit.
          Hate to think how much that cost the guy (think it would pay my Mortgage off)

            Now thats engineering; bespoke subframes, suspension turrets, firewalls etc, etc.

            Something tells me that wasn't done with a hobbyMIG

                  Again not a nor is it a money no object project like the BMW above. It's a bit of a read but if you are mechanically minded then you will appreciate THIS site

                      Thats some very high quality engineering going on there, and a very nice enviroment to do it in by the look of it! Wouldnt mind a go in that car

                      I did read through the thread and somebody started critisizing it for not being safe in a crash due to the fact it wont crumple with all the box section in it. What a gimp!

                        I don't think the E30 M3 would be fitted with much in the way of crumple zones anyway. I'd much rather be in that than an Aygo/C1 when it came to a smash!

                          To be honest i would feel quite safe sitting behind all that steel and a v10, alot safer than whatver i was crashing into

                            Most BMWs are glued together or cold welded these days, my mate bought an accident damaged 07reg 535d Sport that had taken a heavy knock to the wheel and ripped the suspension turret clean off the chassis rail/bulkhead. It was nearly £2k just for the glue to put it back together and it had to be done in a "clean" room according to the BMW bodyshop.
