Thread: S54 sedan exterior swap estimate?

  1. #1

    S54 sedan exterior swap estimate?

    Has anyone gotten quotes from 2M autowerks or similar body shops to do the body conversion for a S54 sedan (front bumper, front fenders, rear arches, rear bumper, spare tire delete (exhaust)) including bodywork + labor?

    Wanted to know ball park figure.

    Still got the vanos (sealing plate is starting to leak a little oil) left to do before my s54 sedan is pretty much mechanically sorted... but strongly considering saving up to get it done in the next year or two (laguna seca blue s54 sedan???)

    On the M3 Touring page, just the rear arches and painting seemed to be around 5-6k IIRC. Thatís the only data I have.

    Bodywork is not cheap, and if it is, its quality is probably questionable.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Yeah seems about right - it takes time to properly graft the quarter panels together. Quality bodywork is always $$$

    A quality paint job is the north of 15-20k in labor + materials... Yikes may need to love Imola Red a little longer!
