Nice done with the car, i am building at the same modell and engine, but i have the e28 m5 front suspension
And rear with special build coilovers. Then i got the m5 e34 big breaks with discs. But the turbo is a garett gt45! Impressive work with the headers!

Awesome build - I'd love to see some more progress on it. The spoiler and the dual exhaust tips are perfect. Have a pic of her from the rear?

I`m waiting for the video of a proper smoking-tire presentation

(I`ve been following this build for a long time. I did my own "E12 build" 30 years ago, not nearly this intensive though )

Very good job man! This was an incredible journey/project you chose to undertake...did you have the intention in the beginning to get this in-depth with the build, or did it just kind of fall into place as you went? Once again, excellent job and the car looks fantastic!

I have to say - I've worked on cars (not as a profession - but as a hobby) my whole adult life - and I would not have undertaken this challenge by myself - with help yeah... but not by myself. And, yet you of little car working knowledge not only took on the challenge - but you've created an automotive artwork in the process.... Deep Salute - by chance in interior modifications / pictures??
