Slip Differential
Juice Box 3 Tune Kit

I think you have messed up M3's engine and 335's engine, 335's engine is I6 not V6.

By the way, how much for installed for M3's engine and 335's engine in your place in US Dollar? Does your 316i chasis can strong enough to resist the torque and force fro anyone from the above engine?

No but that is actually really sick! My buddies in Israel have the same issues as you with taxes being like 100% on cars...craziness, one of them drives a Mazda 3 which is even considered a very high end car there..but either way your bimmer literally looks like an m3, good job and enjoy

After driving in Egypt earlier this year, this project is that much more insane. Honestly never been so terrified in my life. I have driven in other foreign countries and many times in the main cities (Rome, Athens, etc.), but Egyptian drivers are in a completely different world. To say nothing of the roads (majority covered in dirt), which only highlight the insanity.

Makes me sweat even thinking about it.

Good luck! Stay alive.

Sorry used to saying V6... I know its an inline 6... anyway both engines complete with installation run for $20,000.. The chassis is the same on all E92 Models... its the specs that differ such as suspension, engine brakes, ecu... etc

100% Customs & Taxes on 2.0L
150% Customs & Taxes on 2.0L - 2.4L
200% Customs & Taxes on 2.4L - 2.9L
300% Customs & Taxes on 3.0 +

I lived in Toronto all my life cars were dirt cheap !! Had a used 2006 Porsche 911 Turbo for $42,000 !!! but insurance was a bitch !

Agreed completely. There is absolutely nothing like egyptian driving anywhere else in the world. it was terrifying and worse yet, many cars don't even have seatbelts. everyone drives like it's bumper cars on angel dust. I wouldn't let that car within 100 miles of cairo.

I decided to go with the 335i has more luxury features and with minor tuning will reach 500-600 HP..
A bit more than a tune will be needed, also a more than a "minor" tune at that.
