We know you like to support a Lego Idea, so here's the latest!
Whether it be a Caterham or a Land Rover, it's clear that there's appetite on PistonHeads for a big Lego project. Indeed we'd like to think that the PH support helped a fair bit with Carl Greartrix's Seven idea, which of course you can now buy in shops. So when there's opportunity to publicise another one...
Black looks especially good...
The E30 BMW M3 is a car every enthusiast knows of, a tremendously successful touring car and an exceptional road car too. Much like the Golf GTI, the name has become synonymous with the sector it occupies - that's how significant it is.
But then you knew all that about the M3. What you might not know is that one eager Lego builder has now constructed his own brick based homage to the legendary BMW. 'Dani87' has created his three M3s - black, red and yellow - on the Lego Ideas page, canvassing support in an attempt to get the kit made. And we would very much like to get behind it!
Let's make it happen!
His Lego M3 features opening doors, bonnet and boot, plus a removable engine and hinged front seats. The dash even has a full set of stickers on it! Now you may remember with Carl Greartrix's Caterham that a few Lego tricks were used to create prototype parts, which were then altered for production. Dani87's three cars differ on more than just colour though, the red car having a "more Lego look" with the studs shown off. It therefore looks like a more straightforward build. Anyone with more Lego knowledge than us, now's the chance to shout about how achievable (or not) this look is!
The project has been running for a little while, meaning there are 213 days left to get behind the Lego M3. At present it has 963 supporters, with 10,000 required before it gets to the Lego Review Board - you know what you need to do!
