i presently own 4 bimmers, one of them is a 90 e30 convertible which i am making it into a m3 convertible.For this i bought 2 crash cars, one a 89 e30 with a 95 m3 motor in it. I took the drivetrain from it [motor,tranny,computer].I also bought a 88 m3 with 50K in it, i took all the suspension out of it and put it in the convertible which by the way fit right in it. i also bought 2 m3 quarters, fenders, bumpers and put in the car also fit pretty nicely the problem i have is that the motor mounts brakets do not fit right and i ca not seem to find the right ones. If anybody outthere have done this conversion and know which are the right brakets please advise. Thanks.


the motor mounts to use in this swap are the e28 5 series with a 5mm spacers under the mount between the suframe and the mount. with the trany you need the e21 320i trany mounts this car uses only one but you will need to use two in the e30 if you have any more ?s email me at chck1@hotmail.com and i will help as much as possible i have just done a swap on a 90 M3 w/ the M50 engine
