6-Speed Swap for e36 M3

Happy Friday!  The sun has been shining most of this week, which has been wonderful considering our cold temperatures, snow, and ice!  Let’s get right to some of this week’s happenings around the shop!
I was excited to see this sweet e36 M3 roll into the shop!  What a unique color!  She’s a 1997 in byzanz metallic, and she’s getting a 6-speed swap!  Oh, yessssss!  And I may have had just a  little too much fun photographing this one!

First, we have this 1999 Volvo V70.  She’s in for a repair of a fuel door actuator, removal and replacement of the oil trap, and to mount and road force balance new tires.  She’s also getting an engine trim piece powder coated.

Reggie made a car purchase over the weekend…we’re excited to have a 2007 BMW 335i!  She’s a 6-speed, and lots of fun to drive!  I drove in the snow and ice, and I was really impressed with how well she handled the road conditions, thanks to winter tires.  Fortunately, this purchase was made from the original owner who took great care of the bimmer.
