Say Hello to Elise, the new FJD Performance service/support vehicle AND project Daily Driven AutoX’r! Recently we acquired this 2000 BMW 3 series wagon from the original owner who just decided it was time to finally move on, so we had no issue taking it off their hands! Not only is this Bavarian Wagon *hint* going to be a support vehicle, but she will also serve as a daily driver, and an autocross weekend warrior. The car has 172K original miles, and boasts a whopping 170BHP! Wow! Right? Although our main focus is building the Mare, and her soon to be installed engine, Elise here has her fair share of upgrades on the FJD Performance mod list.
The BMW did her job flawlessly this past weekend out at Sonoma, and we couldn’t be happier with this pick up. While we still haven’t gotten around to giving her the much needed attention she deserves, Andrew and Frank did manage to do some smaller detailing on her.
Elise’s future build list looks as follows:
BMW M-Technic (ZHP) front bumper
BMW M3 front fenders
BMW M3 hood
BMW M3 CSL rear bumper
Apex EC-7 wheels
Falken Azenis 615K+ in 255 40 18 all around
Borla or Magnaflow muffler and tips
Bilstein sport valved shocks and struts
M sport steering wheel
M sport seats
LCI clear marker taillights
Carbon Fiber kidney grills
and a bunch of miscellaneous and much needed replacement parts!
