For Nathan Mathews, building an E36-chassis 328i into an M3 doppelgänger wasn’t enough. He kept working and perfecting until he had a machine that could outperform the M3 that inspired the build.

We did a deep dive on this 328i back in the August 2012 issue of Grassroots Motorsports, and you can read about how Mathews transformed it into an M3-beater now by getting GRM+ today.
