Yes, you read that correctly. E30 Touring with a S54 & 6MT from a E46 M3. This is a very rare chance to own such a beautifully executed project. No expense spared and no shortcuts taken. Built by a local enthusiast. Get in and enjoy.


The silver paint is in great condition. No rust, rot, fading. All panels are straight and look excellent. A/C blows cold & heat blows hot. Everything works as it should and this car does not possess the typical negative qualities of a swapped car. No warning lights, everything looks untouched and it would be very easy to convince someone unfamiliar with the platform that the car came this way from the factory.


Background: The vehicle was originally a Italian market vehicle & imported to the US from Italy. Donor car was a rear ended 2005 BMW M3 Convertible w/ 65k Miles. Both the S54 and 6 Speed Manual transmission were used from this vehicle. Below is a list of maintenance, modifications, improvements, and wizardry that made this swap so clean and tidy.
