Well done! - particularly as you are the first E39 based to complete.

Do let us know how that rear end suspension compares to the E30/36.

Great -fantastic.

I simply sent away all the documentation the DVLA asked for, . Just home from skiing, and have the plates in hand ready to fit tomorrow.... I'm actually scared to drive the thing. 3 years of hearing the M3 lump tick over in the garage is all of a sudden going to turn into hearing it under load whilst driving! I've never driven a 320+ BHP engine never mind in a kit car weighing much less than a standard car!

This should be rather exciting with that much power It feels fairly swift with the 2.8 M20 stroker and you've got a good 120-130bhp more! Let us know how it goes
