  • From Bags To Riches - Austin Norton's E36 M3

    Long story short, I’ve wanted an E36 M3 since the age of 13 (I’m currently 25). With hard work starting to pay off, it finally came time make a purchase...but I wasn’t about to buy the first M3 that caught my eye, it had to be just right. I was constantly reminding myself to be patient & after almost a year of searching, I pulled the trigger. Although the mileage was slightly higher than I wanted, the overall condition & maintenance records made up for the 125k on the dash (still relatively low for a 16 year old car).

                              Things have been relatively slow with this build. Mainly because Iíve been enjoying the car for what it is. Iím going to try my best to update this thread with the things I have done.

                              Old OEM rotors, as all four corners were overhauled. Iíll get into that in a bit.

                              I didnít like the way the clears fit so I swapped them with OEM.
