Hey guys thanks for the condolences. As it is right now. I am thinking the chassis is completely bent. I have a big wringle in the roof over the b Pillar. so that mean the whole sub frame is done.

Manual yes i did have the flashers on before hit me. Koreans use the damn things so much. Anymore when i come to an abupt halt I just down shift, flahsers brake lol.

the only thing on this car that will go to the crusher is the body/chassis, I will shell the whole thing. It is a full EDC 3.8L. I think I will crate up the motor and ship it back to the states along with the engine loom and engine management bit and pieces. I am seeing a e30 S38B38 in my future.

Johnnny yes that is my car on youtube puling in the parking spot.

No worries though I wont let any of the items everyone else needs so badly we cant get anymore get junked.

What a waste. Glad you are ok, definitely put that engine into an E30 and keep it going.

What a real shame and quote what others have said about your safety comes first.

I'd put the engine in an E30 Touring rather than spoil an M3, but i am biased!

It's nice you did that, it definitely cannot hurt anything. I don't notice many people doing that in the US.
Actually they don't do much about active safety actions in general.
I love engine braking on our cars.

That'll work! Or you can convert a blown 3.6.

So sorry to hear about your car! I very nearly had mine totaled after hitting a deer recently, so I can begin to imagine what you're going through. Glad to hear you've got plans for the engine and running gear.

So sad about the car, so glad you're alive to tell the story.


Send back all sorts of stuff. It was a 93 right, so you have the motorsport door handles....among other goodies. Did you have by any chance the driver's side glove box?

There is one E30M3 touring here in Austin, but I think it has an S52 in it. Sayther has a red one.

By tomorrow I will be posting if I am parting. I am not sure how shipping will work due to me being stationed in south Korea but I won't let the needed pieces we can't reLly find anymore go to waste. I know for example that some needs the EEC struts front and rear. They don't leak.

No worries I won't let anything I can go to waste
