Somebody in Scandanavia (maybe Norway) built a white one
There's a Fashion Grey F81CS in The Netherlands

Hey Everyone
I'm working on the first video episode, and hope to have that out by Sunday.

In the meantime, here's the advance update on progress!

I spent the last week getting the wagon interior fully stripped out.
I had no idea what a pain in the ass getting all of the interior out was going to be, and keeping track of all the wiring.

Here's a pic of a very lightened F31 for y'all!

Keep up the good work man. Tackling this is not a small job. Ive had 2 major E91 projects and based on the electronics in the F8x F3x, I know for a fact you have a lot of work ahead of you.

I'm sure you're right.
My project "coach" Ryan at Dynasport made sure that when i was on the hunt for my F31, that i was looking for an LCI version so all of the standard wiring and computer systems would be of the same generation. That should help significantly.


Where i'm fully expecting to run in to snags / jobs:
Transitioning the M3 body harness to a power tailgate
Patching in the KAFAS (lane / collision) system from the F31 into the F80 harness
Patching in the power moonroof into the F80 harness
Other shit that i didn't expect

OMG so many wires!

Terrifying to look at! I get nervous just hooking up the battery tender to my M4GTS

Kudos to you, I still remember drooling over M Coupe way back when.

Still scratching my head about BMW not bringing the new M touring to US, I means Audi is selling RS6 Avant for well north ok 100k, what gives?

Keep us posted

This project is destined for a record book of some kind. Looking forward to the updates!

The picture with engine completely removed is both sobering and exciting. Wow.

Awesome. I can only dream of such a project! Kudos to you and your friends.
