Hartge Z4 N54 Swap - Repost?

Always wondered if anyone could/would do a n54 engine swap in the non-m e86... I guess this answers my question:

http://www.autoblog.com/2006/12/05/t...e-biturbo-z30/

Btw - has anyone actually seen that front lip for sale? I've seen the other Hartge bumper/lip on the pre-facelift roadster but never actually seen the one in the link above.

Let's see. How many 2006 Z4M's can I buy right now for 110K? 4? 5?

We aren't criticizing you, just wondering why anyone would spend the money for this car. Makes no sense with what is available for $110K...

I like the bumper too. Looks like mine but with little bits added like the center vert bar and the side lips.
