    A battery and a starter motor. No intention of modifying it. Although I'd be intrigued to see what it would be like stripped to death, on coilovers and on a track. But M3s are getting so cheap....there's no point!

    Yeah, Its just turned around and bolted to the gearbox mount bracket. Needs a little modification if you want to use all of the fixing points though. Seems sturdy enough with just two bolts tbh.
