Got the car back from the body shop on Monday, and immediately got to work fitting the RWD transmission tunnel floor + longitudinal support brace (driver's side only).

Also, while my buddy was fixing a million spot weld holes, i got to work on the hybrid rear bumper supports.


You have to combine the M3 support (in white) with the tail light pocket contour of the F31 wagon both to make the bumper fit, and to match the lines of the tail lights.

(The lights are the same in each car, but in a slightly different location)

That looks like a particle accelarator tunnel!

I think everyone using "build" in their car journals needs to find a new word, as this is actually a build!

Great progress!

Shiny update on the fast-paced path to getting the M3 wagon up and running.

I got the car back from paint this week, in Marina Bay Blue Metallic.

Then this weekend I got as much of the wiring, and underbody / rear driveline together as possible.

This week i'll be tidying up the wiring harness and reinstalling the engine and transmission.

Along the way i'm upgrading a number of pieces, such as
Turner / ECS Shift Bushing
RK Autowerks Pinned Crank Hub
Mishimoto Oil Cooler
and much more

S55 IS IN!!!!!!!

Ryan from Dynasport PDX here in Portland swung by in his E39 M5 Touring (In Interlagos Blue) and helped me drop the engine and 6-speed transmission in.

I ended up putting in the majority of the exhaust and a bunch of other little wiring things last night.

Loving how this is looking as it comes together - man oh man.

First startup on Sunday. Never screamed that hard in my life!

Also, the front end is damn near together, looking mean AF.
