Heres what i traded in for my R..Its a BMW compact with a S52 M3 engine conversion, After the Remap and my Ss system and CAI it was Dyno'd at 347bhp and 420NM torque..at the rear :) yess its a beast and could out do an RS4 , E92 M3 and similar class cars but it was insured as the 1.8 i couldnt afford insurance as a 3.2 compact only being 19..Thats why i thought id sell it for peace of mind and got an R ... Heres a few pics of the beast

lol, looking good mate, but not very clever insuring it as a 1.8 although I can understand why you did it!

Have you got the R yet? Any pictures?!?!

I upgraded brakes to 328 calipers and Bigger discs:





And Heres the engine going in the standard Ti:







And then i did a makeover on the car..resprayed in Monza bleu.. and added the wheels and boser hood:







Spent just under 8k including the car..and made every penny back :)

Standard E36 M3 discs are 315mm diameter. They aren't by the looks of things as they look tiny benhind the wheels which are 18".

There only the 328 discs but they are suprizingly good, standard Ti brakes are ace apart from the fact they suffer brake fade so i upgraded to the 328 calipers which are still only 280mm but allow vented discs which vastly improve the braking... The brakes were fine for the car.. it wasnt for track use anyhow they brakes coped more than enough..
