M3 CS Touring, S14-Swapped 2002, Slammed E30 325i: Three Standouts From BimmerFest


Selecting three automobiles to highlight at BimmerFest Europe was by no means going to be a simple process. And as my time at Raceway Venray within the south of Holland went on and I noticed extra builds, the problem solely turned more durable. Ultimately, my selection merely got here right down to the variety of images I took of every automotive that stood out to me (there have been quite a bit).

Let’s begin with this BMW M3 CS Touring…

Like most BMW aficionados, I by no means understood why BMW didn’t produce an M3 Touring, particularly when you think about the success that Audi has loved with their RS4 and RS6 Avant fashions. After all, this yr it should all change, as a result of BMW is lastly releasing a Touring model of their M3.

With out an official M3 Touring within the BMW line up, fans have been taking up the mammoth job of constructing their very own variations. Some are higher than others, and I feel that Sander Koelemij has gone above and past along with his.

Not solely has he created a BMW M3 Touring, however a extra hardcore CS model. To attain this, Sander mated a 316d Touring with a crashed BMW M3 CS, and the result’s fairly spectacular. All the chassis and drivetrain from the M3 CS was transferred into the Touring, so it’s fairly legit.

Including to this, the engine breathes somewhat freer because of an Eventuri consumption, and the wheels are 20×9.5-inch (entrance) and 20×11-inch (rear) solid Concaver CVR5s.

One other standout for me was this shiny orange BMW 2002, and never simply due to its contemporary Colorado Orange paintwork, however due to what now lives beneath the hood.

The automotive was constructed by Mats van de Model for a buyer, and options an S14 engine from a BMW E30 M3.

Mats focuses on E30 M3 rally automobiles, so all of the data he’s acquired from engaged on the excessive efficiency four-cylinder S14 discovered its means into the 2002. The electronics had been utterly up to date for reliability and a standalone engine administration system now offers the firing orders. Energy output is 259hp and a whopping 306Nm of torque.

I’m positive this could be a lot of enjoyable on the highway.

Developments come and go, however slamming your E30 on a set of BBS RS wheels will by no means exit of fashion. What’s even cooler is preserving as a lot as doable in your construct interval right, and this E30’s proprietor, Pim Vinke, has accomplished that by means of components collected over a few years. The one trendy piece of apparatus is the Air Raise Efficiency air trip system.

The bottom automotive is an E30 325i M-Technic II, which got here from manufacturing unit with the M20B25 engine. Pim’s automotive nonetheless has that power-plant up entrance, however it’s now stroked to 2.7-liters and incorporates a Dbilas Dynamic consumption setup with particular person throttle our bodies and a Hartge header working out to a customized exhaust system that ends in an Eisenmann muffler.

As soon as Pim has absolutely dialed every thing in, I’ll be capturing a full function on his E30. And sure, I’ll undoubtedly document the sound.
