    About a year ago, there was a thread about a local shop building an E30 M3 with a V10 for a guy with an extensive BMW collection. The car is nearing completion and here is a lengthy pictorial of the fabrication work which has gone into the car. Needless to say, it's very impressive. Given that every suspension pickup has been changed and the car has new subframes, new track, etc, it may be fair to say it's an E30 M3 in body shape only. Outside of the shape, it's truly a custom car and not just a drivetrain swap:

    The power and art behind their fabrication is just awesome.

    How can you think it kills the car?

    I can agree with you about the fab work that goes into a car like that. However, that car was never intended to have a huge engine in it. Think about this: E30s had a 6-cylinder option yet the high performance variant had a 4-cylinder...and was the most successful in it's day...and is still revered for it's track ability. No coincidence that more cylinders does not equal better car.
