    Wow, that's a good one. I literally wrecked my M3 the SAME exact way! Less damage on the front but the rear end is identical and the front passenger fender too. I just did exactly what you're doing, swap and repeat. Salvage what you can, keep on going. Nice chassis, looks clean. E36 will stay cheap for awhile. Nobody wants them and they make cheap racecarrrrrs. I think there's a saying Race, Reck, Repeat? Haha.

    Yeah man! I just checked out your thread too, you went waayy deeper with the whole rotisserie and engine bay painting, hats off to you sir. Did you wreck the car in the thread, or before that?

    As far as I knew, the steed was the only one that fit the efr for bottom mount but just recently I though I read someone was trying it with a SPA? I strongly suggest a bottom mount for any type of racing so when you crash the car the turbo and manifold is protected. This was my number one concern when deciding between top and bottom mount and unfortunately I got to prove myself right, lol.

    I wrecked mine mid thread just like your car. In October is when I hit a guardrail. Really sucked but in the end, I got an easier to pass emmisions car and it's 100% right from bumper to bumper.
