MY BMW M2 HATCHBACK BUILD IS GETTING DIFFICULT

I bought this stolen recovered BMW M140i from auction and then decided to try and convert it to a BMW M2 hatchback. Ive already fitted the front end, but now its time to sort out what id be doing to the rear quarters, alloys & suspension.

    Widen the back of the side skirts to meet the flare and mould it properly and you're onto a winner. I say go for it.

    Would have liked the body shop option better and just update how far a long the body shop was every now and then. A donor engine of an M2 would finish that up nicely. Then it would be a real m2. I know expensive, but I have seen 2 builds of M3 touring builds and there were awesome.

    Mat, why not just get the same wheel dimensions for the front as you have in the back? Would look way better! Please atleast mount a rear to the front for test purposes. Having the same spec all around is way better than using spacers up front.

    I'd leave the rear as is - stance looks great. Deffo looks better being a narrower body, quite understated. I'd say get another 2 of the 9j rear offset wheels on the front - will look much better than spacers and will have similar geometry issues so no difference there. Otherwise might be worth looking at the M2's lower arm/tension arm situ, as I can't see BMW building an entirely new front subframe just for the M2 - much more likely to change the geometry through the arms etc. Only a guess though!

    Amazing project! However it needs the oem m2 side skirts installed first since they can act as a guide for the fitment of the rear quarter panels. Also there is no need for the doors to be modified because bmw avoids it as well (for example both the m3 e46 touring concept and the f80 m3 have wider rear arches and keep the exact doors from their respective regular 3ers).

      Sorry bro but out of the hundreds of thousands of people that watch your the only complaint. Problem is if I just have one car or concentrate on one project the videos would be way less frequent more like 1 video every 2 weeks as I have to wait for a lot of parts then fit them etc etc. By puttin one vid out every other week I would not be able to make a living., also then people would complain there’s not enough content. This is the reason I have multiple projects so I can then film on the cars I have parts for whilst I wait for othe me parts on the other projects. If you don’t like watching one car you don’t have to watch every video just watch the videos on the cars your interested in.
