Or two new cars. I'm sure it's smokin' hot and I'm sort of an E30-ophile but the body looks a bit weird with the bulge outs, front and rear.

I dunno, I'd a put that engine in an E39, 5 series. Stock suspension probably would have worked and the installation would have been much easier, I'm guessing. And the new body on this thing is just odd looking.

That's an ambitious project. I wonder how long it took to complete?

However, I think the welds on the front subframe look crappy.
