God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

The E30 is what all actual driving enthusiasts are after. It's an unpretentious machine, quietly capable of spectacular feats of handling. It's light, simple design is rugged enough to run against $400k rally cars, but on the street it' communicative chassis delights even the most disinterested driver. It really is one of the world's ultimate driving machines

I'm pretty sure it's already been done. But I still say give it a go.

they are overly heavy and arent worth the time. there is a video on youtube of a turbo m20 taking a v12 e30 for a walk. there is alot of e30 v12 cars. the only thing good about them is that fact that you can say .. I HAVE A V12 .. but thats all its good for

i dont think you understand the concept of an engine. a tt m20 would most likely be worse then most or any single turbo m20's. Limmet had a 1100+ hp single turbo m20.

after rethinking what i said and getting my doors (and pants) blown off by a gtr, i am so down with doing something like the ics bumblebee. single turbo s53 swap with a little better transmission. i remember reading the article they blew the tranny or clutch before they could get near top speed........

of course i got the link if you want to read up. and search for the vid of the start up......gets me everytime
