Right so basically most of you will know my old car which now belongs to @nicole_

Went through a mad spell going out of hondas and currently got a 2005 M3 CS

So opportunity came up for a minted DC2 shell off my mate so thought why not, cars been a full shell respray at some point so its clean as which is the main point for me

Picked it up last week and it'll be a slow build until the m3 gets sold

Its had some decent money spent on it in the past, full tucked loom, fuel and brake lines running inside the car, wallbro 340lph pump in the tank, 98 spec hub swap and 98 spec dash in it

Anyway some pics after a clean up and after removing the dash to sort out what's what with the wiring

Looks a good base to work on.

Love how the previous owner moved the battery and washer bottle but yet kept the door speakers.....

It had a full bay tuck done, was fully clean hence the relocation stuff

Speakers are needed like, can't live without my tunes eh
