    2015 Bmw M235i racing simulator

    Hey guys
    Over the last two years i have been working on this project and figure some of you might get a kick from it.
    It's probably one of the craziest things I've ever built as I didn't even know how or what I was going to do but I knew I wanted to build a racing rig out of a real car.
    I contacted a salvage yard that a friend runs and went down to see what they had and came across a few e46 m3s and a 2015 m235i with 77 miles on it.
    After tons of negotiations I came home with the m235. It was cut in half and had no driveline or suspension but was what I needed to build what I was after.
    Now it was time to figure out the Controls and figure out what I can get to work from the car after being cut.
    I used a thrustmaster t500 wheel set and 7 speed shifter that I had to cut and modify to the point of no return.
    I then finished cutting the front and rear of the car and covered all the metal edges.
    The front is cut all the way to the firewall.
    The car has the oem door speakers and subwoofers under both seats that I wired to a 110w home amplifier. Also there are four ten inch jl subwoofers powered by a large peavey rack amp. The sound is amazing and very powerful with the subwoofers under the seats and the four tens.
    I have the full interior working at this point including dash, heated power seats, blower motor and all interior lighting.
    It uses a 60" 4K display to fully fill the windshield and at this point I'm using a PS4 for the console as I racing games for it.

    Here is a video of it when i first got it together

    i have it listed of eBay now
    here is a link to auction with more pictures

    2015 m235i that was totaled

    Car has body damage and such.
    Windshield is cracked across top of drivers side.
    Passenger side is decent with most damage showing starting in the back by door closing.
    Drivers side is wrecked in front fender to about the mirror mounting spot than again from the door handle back. Looks like door was pried open, there is no handle on drivers side and I have the door modified to not latch.
    Great interior that is wired to power up as it would when turned on.
    Large A.C to D.C. Power supply with large gauge wires were ran to power the vehicle functions.
    Ac/heat blows room temperature air by control if wanted.
    Heated seats work.
    Power seats work.
    Interior could use leather cleaned in a few spots
    Thrustmaster t500 steering wheel and pedal set mounted into car. The mounting is solid and I have had no issues. That being said I believe it would be good for a responsible adult owner and would probably have to be beefed up if it was to go to a commercial atmosphere or multiple rough users.
    Th8a shifter mounted and oem performance bmw shift knob and boot installed with it. Looks factory.

    All the interior speakers are wired so they play.
    There is a pioneer a/v amp to power those.
    There are four 10" jl subwoofers mounted behind the seats.
    Also 2 transducers one mounted under each seat.
    A large peavey ipr-1600 amp to power those subs and transducers.
    Orion Hcca 225r amp mounted to back for looks only.
    Top notch custom pc was special built for this by a gaming pc specialist.
    Custom Built Gaming PC:
    So it has been sitting in my game room, and is not being used. It has about a total of 2-3hrs on it total before I just gave up with trying to map all the controls. So basically its a brand new computer. I have the original purchase receipt and full breakdown of whats in the tower.
    -Intel Core i7-4790 Devils Canyon Quad Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
    -Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
    -Asus Maximus VII Gene Motherboard (HDMI - Display Port - USB 3.0)
    -GTX 970 Gaming 4G - MSI GeForce DirectX 12 (SLI Ready)
    -Samsung 850 EVO-Series 2.5" 250GB SATA III 3-D Solid State Drive
    -Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
    -TP Link T93 AC1900 Wireless Internet Card
    -EVGA 80 Plus GOLD 750w Power Supply (10yr Warranty) SLI Ready and Crossfire Support Continuous
    -Corsair Hydro Series H60 High Performance Water/Liquid Cooler 120mm
    -Corsair Air Series SP120mm White LED High Static Pressure Case Fans (Twin Pack)
    -Corsair Carbide Series Black Steel / Plastic Window 240 High Airflow Mini PC Case
    -Windows 10
    -Original Purchase Receipt Included (Note: On the receipt i originally paid for an Z97 Motherboard, but it was out of stock at the time of build, so i went with a better and more expensive board for $120 bucks more.) So your getting a much better gaming motherboard. I have $2000 dollars total into this tower and it is absolutely beautiful
    60" vizeo 4K hi def tv monitor with heavy duty full swiveling extended reach mount.
    I have tons of time and money in this and hate to part with it but I just do not use it enough.
    It is fully useable as I have it sitting right now but I have only played it on a PS4 as I never had time to set up the pc. So the pc will need fully set up to the controls as it is a brand new pc.
    This is a full custom build and I tried to do everything the best I could. It looks decent and I've never had any complaints but I know there are things that could be cleaned up or done in a different way to possibly make it better but that being said I am selling it the way it is. I want someone to buy it knowing this is not a finished project in my mind there is plenty of things that can be done to make it better or just make it yours.
    This is sold as is and I prefer the buyer to come check it out and fall in love with it. It's definitely a one of kind project.
    Shipping will be buyers responsibility.
    I have moved it on a rollback before. It is on small wheels.
    69" wide from side to side
    99" deep from back to fron
