CAtuned E30 Mtech2 Vert
Behold, one of our meticulously crafted E30 Convertibles, a testament to our dedication. This model is the final iteration of the E30 convertibles—manufactured in 1993. Initially, it was an overlooked vehicle, requiring comprehensive attention. We embarked on a journey, painstakingly disassembling it to its core and meticulously reconstructing every element you witness today. Every facet was carefully addressed; practically every component was replaced, often with upgraded alternatives wherever feasible.
The car underwent an extensive disassembly process, including the removal of the engine and more. Subsequently, it entered the body shop, where meticulous attention was given to rectifying dents and addressing various issues. A fresh coat of paint, specifically Jet Black, was skillfully applied, providing a renewed and refined finish.
After repainting it was time for assembly:
We opted for a custom interior sourced from Europe, selecting Recaro seats upholstered with cloth material to mitigate heat absorption during the summer, ensuring a comfortable experience. This choice also enhances comfort during winter months. Moreover, we revamped the door panels and dash, adorning them with leather finishes accented by striking red stitching. We also rejuvenated the convertible top, treating it to a stunning red material and installing all-new internal straps for a refreshed appearance and improved functionality.
When it came to the engine, we left nothing to chance and performed a comprehensive rebuild of the entire M20. The heart of the car underwent a complete renewal, boasting upgraded valves, a stage 2 camshaft, new pistons, and numerous additional enhancements.
When it came to the wheels, we aimed for something distinctive and sought the expertise of one of our dealers based in Japan, who happens to own their own wheel brand: Edmond Wheels
