Our latest challenge @ HELLBM: 2007 118i Le Mans Blau M Sport powered by S65 with DCT.
Using a 130 shell as a mockup test fitted E92M3 subframe,Steering column with linkage,S65 and DCT.
Fitted like it belonged there. Interestingly the chassis dimensions shared with E92 M3 and E87 are identical right down to the extra threaded holes for the M3 subframe.
Overall weight difference between the E92 M3 and E87 118i is approx. 400kg with 100kg weight difference between the motors. The finished S65 powered E87 will be approx. 250-300kg`s lighter.
