Getting started

Posted by Josh Avery on

You might remember this...


Then a drunk driver slammed into it and turned it into this...


The plan:

Take the totaled 2007 BMW 335I and this pretty beat 1995 M3 and make something rad.


For us, the most exciting part about this build is instead of dropping the car off at a shop and having them do all the work, we'll be doing it in a garage during after hours and free weekends. Even though this is a pretty rare swap there are a few out there already which will make it easier along the way.  

The team:


Austin Volpe
BMW Master Tech, Drone Flyer




Josh Avery

Adult with capable friends, Car owner



Maxx Faith




Russell Stacey




Initial Cost:

Buying the 335I back from insurance - $2650

Clean title E36 M3 roller - $1450

Vehicle transport- $550



Stay tuned for plenty of documentation and updates posted here and on youtube.
