Awaiting a whole load of posts moaning about ridge height or tyre profile blah blah blah, I just really need a bredvan RX7 in my life now.
It looks like a race car and the only reason for the breadvan styling is to go faster at places like Le Mans. Unless that car is used at speeds of say 200mph+, I suspect that it is all styling fraud and that it drives like st.

Another waste of one of the best looking cars of all time.

BMW 1 series coupe with 1M body conversion, E92 M3 engine (4.0 V8) and running gear. It's even had the engine swap registered with DVLA:

I would love a go in this.

For those who can't access eBay at work:





The pictures are a bit crap, and it really doesn't suit the M3 Competition Pack wheels, but I like it a lot.
Think I'd prefer the same transplant in a 2-series coupé though...

Also, no bucket seats?!

Crikey, that's a great bit of kit. I'd put some other seats in and that's about it.

Me too. The colour’s awful, but it kind of keeps it under the radar a bit.

Which one did you see the green one or the yellow one. They both look awful.

If it’s the same car it hasn’t improved with age. Cheap tat thrown on poorly by chavs

I'd just put a carpet, headlining and decent seats in it and possibly tweak it to 300 brake? wink
