BMW M2: Bavarian Wonder

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Marc Norris's Bavarian Workshop has rolled out countless projects across its three decades of existence...but none quite like the M2.

Based off a mid-Seventies 2002, Norris reworked the classic coupe to utilize the E30 M3's hardware--most notably, the E30's chassis and 2.3 L inline-four. The combination of BMW's defining classic and the "holy grail" of M3s has resulted in a four-wheel wonder.

So check out the video and see that wonder for yourself.

I love that. I love everything about it...but, for the cost of a new M5 AND a spare car too", you can keep it.

The car reminds me of the first TTi that stole my heart at first site.

Nice built.

Huh, so that's two less classic BMW's in the world and one more 'tuner car'...

I'd rather read about an immaculately restored 2002, and an immaculately restored E30 M3... but I guess it's not my money.

I love builds like this. You know the saying, they don't make 'em like they used to. But as someone said, M5 money + another car? Wow, ouch.

I think this is a cool car but I can see where you are coming from.

After a car gets to be a certain age it's almost sacrilege to "alter" it in anyway because the number of originals just keep going down and down.

Great video until the end about the cost. If it was so easy to do, then it shouldn't have cost WAY over $100,000...

An over embellishment that added no value to the video. It should have been left out...

Beautiful, classic build. Same color as my dad's tii, not silver, not light gray, but Polaris. lol. Plus, imagine the faces when it pulls up next to an E46 M3 and dusts it. Great feature.

Love the car! I wish I was in LA, I would love to have access to a BMW garage like that! BTW, Marc if you are reading this- it looks like years of keeping your head down while working has taken a toll on your cervical curve. PM me and I will see if I can find a good chiro by you so you can avoid getting decreased range of motion, neck/shoulder pain and numbness and tingling in your hands.
