Here’s the rap sheet as it now stands: Fuel tank access holes need tidying up and a couple of bits cut out and replaced Front inner arch section needs cutting out and replacing Rear tail panel needs cutting out and replacing Front wings need bottom parts cutting off and repair panels welding on Jacking points all need redoing as someone has bodged them Hole in rear arch to repair I’ve now discovered the boot floor aound the rearmost exhaust hanger has rot and would have to cut all that part out and weld in a piece with the exhaust hanger mountings. Looks a very awkward job too Seems to be some rust underneath seam sealer on the inside of the passenger rear quarter?! Further investigation has revealed all the back of the rear arch at that side is rusty too There’s a huge worry that the underside being covered up with under seal will also have more rust on the floor pan that will be revealed over time Having seen the repair of the front arch another poster has shown us I’d love to think I could save this but I now longer have the luxury of time. Following a marriage break up I am under pressure to get the house sold which isn’t easy with a car in bits on the drive. So choices are flog it as is, try and fix it despite it having to be a rush and me not being very confident, try and reshell it fairly quickly and flog the remains. It won’t be a real M3 anymore.... that would hurt. But I paid £4.5k. The reshelled car (which would be a track car and would be raced) would never be worth less than that, but it won’t go up in value like an M3 either. But mine has done 157k so would never be a top example. So if I do reshell, how do I get around the EWS issue? What else should I be mindful of? Evo fuel pump will need to be swapped across but no worries there. Anything else?
