Just started building a M3 touring (F81) using a F80 as donor.
I will use everything from the M3 over to my F31, so this will be a fun touring.

More pictures will come

How are you going to modify the F31 front end? M3 front suspension won't fit there due to subframe differences. Assume you're going to convert to RWD?

Have you read this thread about conversion of F31 to RWD? http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho...1164655&page=2

If you ask me BMW should offer an F81 M3 from the factory.
Looking forward to see the end result.
