I have been reading for a while on the M5Board and now i figured that I should make a thread on the restoration of my B3 3.0 -94.
Pictures below shows tha car as purschased in April 2008, not so pretty but I new from the start that this was a project car!
I have allways had a huge intrest in cars and especially sportcars like BMW, Porsche, Alfas och ofcourse Alpina! Me and my better half bought our first house 2 years ago and my "only" demand was that we should have a house with a big garage! We found a nice house with a nice garage (72 m2) and I was i the market of finding a reasonble pretty cheap sport saloon (we were also expecting our first child so I thought a 4 door would be nice).
Long story short, I found this Alpina!
Since I like racing my first idea was to build a dedicated race-car from it with rollcage and so on. Somewhere durng the summer I decided that there are better cars to build a racecar from and that this instead should be a good summercar with good roadholding and good brakes which could take the whole family to a few local raceweekends .
Also I felt a bit bad of "destroing" an Alpina.
So , project in short:
Repair rust damage, change all 4 doors , frontfenders, rear wheelarches and rearend section.
Paint, the car will be Alpinweiss III with gren/blue alpina stripes.
Chassi: Bilsteins PSS14 coilovers.
330 E46 Brakes
Stock interior exept driver seat which will be a Sparco Evo.
Body : Stock exept M3 sideskirts and M3 mirrors (original)
