I can finally add to the list. My 332ti is officially legal in California, got it passed by the BAR referee yesterday. Off to the DMV to get it registered next week and get my California Plates.

96Ti with an S52 swap with M3 5 speed, M3 front brakes, Z3M rear trailing arms and brakes, cool carbon pads all around, 3.73 lsd, M3 Ltw 5 spoke wheels with Hankook RS-3 tires (235/40/17's) and all the $)(*@&% smog control stuff California wants.

I have a '96 sunroof-less Calypsorot chassis from Italy that came with an M44 & Getrag 5-speed. Had 200k on the chassis when I completed the swap in August 2013. Swapped in a '97 328i M52 engine (with 114k), ECU, dash cluster & front suspension. Used a ZF trans, shifter and driveshaft out of a '96 328ic (direct bolt-in). Diff (3.25 w/LSD) out of an E28, and axles from an E30. Lightweight flywheel/clutch. Complete suspension & brake rebuild, including Koni single-adjustables all 'round, H&R Sport springs (318ti set; front sits too low!), Polyflex purple bushings throughout, and factory x-brace. Engine mount reinforcements welded-in. Racing Dynamics 28mm & 19mm sways for a Z3 ready to go in. Glass-matt Miata battery moved to trunk. Magnaflow two-into-one muffler completes the sleeper look but sounds roarty.

About three weeks ago, I picked up a sunroofless, '96 with ratty Boston green paint, a full TC Design roll cage, Moton Clubsport double adjustable shocks, a DTM style trailing arm rear suspension, and a complete 2002 M-roadster drivetrain (minus the transmission that's E36 M3). Includes a partially stripped 2002 M-roadster wiring harness (engine and body), and, yes that means its running an S54 engine with stock computer.

Its a beast, but needs a lot of development. Once the fuel starvation is fixed (thanks Dan I) I have a 3.73 differential to install, need to find a E46 M3 airbox/intake muffler, need to reflash the computer from M-roadster to M3 tune, then I need aero, suspension setup training and more rubber...

Add me to the list, I finally finished my swap, 95Ti now with a 92 M50 non-vanos engine/tranny from a 325i. I used a z3 exhaust and a set of ebay headers. Already had a E30 diff in the car and 328 front brakes.
