Default 242 + e46m3 = 262 W (episode 2)

I said I wouldn't build another 240.......
I said I wouldn't EVER own another black car...

Then stumbled upon this at a local JY
burned e46 m3 with 6 speed manual 105k.... $540 after taxes

repasta















a week later I picked up a 1982 242 T to start building it up
Thanks Luke and Gary


Then yesterday (10/11/14) I stumbled upon CJs old 242..... Couldn't pass up the deal
Thanks again Luke and Gary
I just saved myself 6 months worth of work.










parts that will go on black 262

parts I have
flathood
early flathood grille/lights
240 LSD


I will try to get these mounted e46 coilovers with spindles - look really close (I paid $62 for the pair)

Did you just say $540 after taxes? For a complete s54 and gear box? That's just theft. Check out r3vlimited for technical advise and wiring. That's were all the s5x engines disappear in e30 engine bays.

Thanks guys
I also have a GT cluster I got for ... $15 (1/2 off sale) that I restored that might go into this thing. (depending if I can get the speedo to work somehow
Backing plate for late dash was made by volvogt



And a set of E21 Recaros that will go into this thing. $45 (1/2 off sale also)
they need new upholstery but you can get a kit on ebay for $350

Serious the Ronals will be the icing on the cake. Get them to fit. 15" Is a good size.
