BMW E30 V8 M60 6 speed MOT+Tax Ready to drive
This listing is for a very speical car that took over 6 months to build to this spec. I actually bought 3 cars to make this one E30 (this car) E30 (Donor for a few parts), An E34 540I sport 6 speed manual (this was one 3 left on uk roads) I used the engine and gearbox from this for the e30, I have all the details off the car stack of service history etc, I did alot of research to find the right donor car to buy to use the running gear from. I will give the new owner all the details and service history of this car to go with it so you have it for reference. I then set about finding a good E30 shell that didn't need a huge ammount of work required to be to a high standard for the conversion. I found a E30 318 locally that had 2.5 conversion already in it! It was a loved example that just needed a bit of TLC. I bought the car and we then set about getting this ready for the conversion.
Any questions phone me on 07826851922
I completely polybushed the whole car (every single bush with powerflow bushes)
2x new sills professionally put on the car
I also had a few patches that were required for the car and then undersealed the whole car.
The car is fitted with custom coilovers with springs for the right poundage for the M60B40 weight,
I also fitted WMS 298MM 4 pot kit and earls braided lines with red stuff pads, also have a woodward bias valve front to rear so braking is top notch. The handbrake also locks on 2 clicks ( had all the rear apart and rebuilt them during the conversion).
The car required a huge ammount of custom fab work for the conversion to be completed mainly the brakes, steering, exhaust system all of these have been completed to a high standard. These projects are often started but never finnished. The car puts a smile on your face every time you drive it and you always get people asking about when you go to petrol station etc. It was built to be a trackday/drift weekend car but I never actually got the chance to use it on the track or drifting I have done around 1000 miles since the conversion was completed but I really don't get the time to use it hence why it's for sale!

I am sure I have missed lots from the spec list but phone or message me for more info.
The paintwork on the car has been touched up with rattle cans (but a good job) the plan was to get it fully resprayed but this would be upto the new owner.
The passenger side front wing has a dent in it near the headlight, and the drivers side has a small ammount of rust on the bottem but you can buy wings for £42 per side I had planned to replace before having painted.
I have litterly spent thousonds completing this car it's ready to drive away with Tax for the next 3 months and MOT till december I have the V5 in my name and all documentation. It would make a perfect track/drift car or just a weekend/fun car!
CASH on collection, could possibly arrange delivery.

Price is £5000ONO as unsure what they are worth (I have spent way more than this!) but I am open to sensible offers or interested in cool swaps for bikes cars trucks etc try me!
