OK OK it's not British.... but how often does one see an RV8 in a modern Bimma... and not thrown together either...

1993 318is with 3.5 on carbs...

Unfortunately I don't think it's legal, as it will fail emissions. Shame, but I guess it could be rescued with an efi retrofit, and hopefully will be.

Had a friend put a turbo 215,( not Jetfire) and a T5, in a 320 i. Made for a good swap. Added 30lbs total weight.
He ran it at RIR. with the BMW Club.

Now that's a well-maintain car with a really clean engine bay.
