    Hi all, I don't usually introduce myself on forums, but in this case I feel I should so no one thinks I'm an idiot later.

    I (sorry to let you all know) have a soft spot for a certain 80s Ford Coupe, (eh hem...the Capri), however I love the BMW Ms and especially the straight 6s, so I have decided to combine the two.

    I have a Capri shell, which will hopefully be having M3 rear suspension and pretty much full drive train, along with a custom space frame front end and a list as long as my arm of other parts. The aim is to produce a porsche baiter from a clean looking old school meets new school car.

    There is no way I can do this without getting seriously clued up and I would really appreciate some help!? - To put it into perspective, I have just bought a 1996 3.2 M3 EVO engine, gearbox, wiring gauges (and full BMW service history!); the wiring alone has me getting a bit of a headache!

    So what do you think? I'm not exactly a BMW owner, but am I worthy?
