Part 1 of 2 of the restauration of a 1959 Mk1 Frog Eye Sprite.
BMW E30 M3 - Total Disgrace
1988 BMW e30 M3 USA Spec | I took this video just before selling the car and after years of restoration. The wheel set chosen were BMW Radial style from the BMW e39 540i. The suspension dampers and springs were updated and lowered 25mm. The strut brace was fabricated by John Mason of Mason Engineering. The engine was the original US spec 2.3L 4 Cylinder with 215Hp. I then graphed in 100cpsi metal catalysts with 2.50" cat-back muffler system (this alone yielded +7whp / 11wtq) and updated to the EVO cam gear and reprogrammed the ECU tune file. The car ran very strong with good tone and was highly reliable. The e30 M3 is the original and still the very best touring car I have ever known.
