Mein Auto: '95 M3
New to Bimmerfest!

Hello,

I am John, I am from St. Louis, and I have a '95 Cosmos on Black M3.

I have had it for a little over 2 years and LOVE it! I have already put a new transmission/clutch/FW/dssr/etc..in it. I rebuilt the front suspension replacing every seal, bushings, and most bolts last winter along with replacing the trunk, and installing OEM ambers and tails...the hideous/cheap clears and LED tails didn't really do it for me.

Car is lowered currently on H&R Sports/Konis, with JTD RSMs, RSB, etc..I have also installed reinforcing plates up front, and reinforced the subframes, pockets and so on. I picked up a set of K1's a little more than a year ago for it and a few other odds and ends for the interior.

The car is higher mileage (225k+), but for the most part is in good shape and rust free..though the front suspension tear down found several issues that I had to correct.





Here is a dyno from last year of the car (shorty headers, AA track-pipe, AA rear section):


Car is currently down for a 9.8:1 big single 2jz build which consists of:
S366 .91 Twin Scroll Turbo
Wiseco Asymmetrical Skirt Pistons
Eagle Rods
ARP Studs
E85
Megasquirt 3x w/ LQ9 COP
R154
Custom Engine/Trans Mounts
Sheetmetal Upper Intake Manifold
FIC900's (for now)
188mm 3.38 Rear Gear (was in the car when I bought it)
etc..

Thanks!_a_
