BMW E46 318i to M3 Conversion

Okay, back to business, new content!

Thanks to Phil from Phils Car Blog for submitting this build. The owner takes his unassuming 4 door E46 318i sedan and stuffs it full of angry M3 goodness. Although it might seem at first that bolt-on items such as bumpers, lights, and panels would be subject to a simple swap-over, it turns out to be quite difficult when small physical differences become apparent. Come and see the owner document the OEM quality transformation from the ground, up.

  3. Hi, I can’t access the pics or the blog properly as my brother in law thinks all he has to do is swap the engine over on his 2000 plate 318i (MPower) because he found the badges in the boot and has been told the gearbox is race spec.

  4. I’m trying to to this myself and gather Intel but the images aren’t loading. Tried different computers with a variety of browsers.
