    New car thought

    I always thought the E46 M3 was the best BMW but wasn't without it's issues to me.
    I can sort a lot of the issues out, I always wanted a S62 E39 M5 5 litre V8 in a E46 M3.
    Was thinking CSL is the way to go as the next step, BUT how about getting a cool coloured E46 M3 and sorting some of the issues I have with it and then send the car to a guy I know who does engine conversions on BMWs for a living and get a S62 fitted, then sell the S54 motor on and get a bit of money back, I'd have a spot on V8 powered E46 M3 and something different.
    The guy I know has done a few of these conversions and says they are awesome, they have so much torque and so quick as well as sound sweet.
    Another thought was to do the same conversion to a 330 clubsport and keep it looking like a 330 clubsport so it'd be a bit of a sleeper.

    Well it not a bad idea Mark, the s62 is an evil bit of kit and fook having that in an M3, it will be a monster for sure and i like the idea off keeping it all Bmw, but if it was me if would have to be a LS 3 Lump as your be hard push to get more then 450bhp out of an S62 and an LS3 Lump would piss that all day long

    Liking that idea with the 330 Mark, youd have a great sleeper there and would keep you entertained i think

    Might be good when you go back to the ring as well

    Suppose youd get some decent cash for the M3s engine as well so that would help a good bit

    Edit: forget the M3 bit lol

    Good idea! But i bet you would regret it in the end?
    The car would be a monster and have qudos points, but it would probably spend most off its time in garages being fettled!!
    Find one off the v8 conversions done by hartge or one off the others! Get it out off your system then get your porker

    This sounds epic!
    I would go for a 330 as they are cheaper and sleepers are cool.
    Would be amazing when you dust people off and they hear the awesome roar and see you fly away....
