The Story

We started this build with a 2017 BMW F80 M3 that was purchased wrecked. After rebuilding the car, we ran into some engine issues that led us to opt for a fully built LS3 crate motor. The LS3 engine was mated to the stock dct transmission, allowing us keep the factory look and drivability. In addition to the engine swap, we upgraded the car with various modifications including a custom exhaust system, air intake, and suspension upgrades to make sure it performs at its best. We are also wrapping the car in a unique and eye-catching color to match its performance. Throughout the build, we documented our progress on our YouTube channel, Instagram, and TikTok. Our content features everything from the installation of the LS3 crate motor and Holley standalone, to the custom exhaust system and custom fabrication. Overall, this F80 M3 build is a true example of dedication and passion for building unique cars that perform at their best.
