We built the Griot’s Garage World’s Fastest Detail Wagen for the SEMA trade show. Standing out in a sea of flashy cars was a tall order because it would take a keen eye to notice the BMW’s subtle, well-executed customizations. Still, we hoped our two-door M3 wagon conversion would be noticed. Boy, did our dreams come true.
The Detail Wagen was a smash. It garnered accolades from show-goers and feature write-ups from the likes of Road & Track, Carscoops, BMW.SG, Razao AutoMovel, Motorpasion, and the BMW Car Club Great Britain. It was refreshing to see that people still recognize and appreciate attention-to-detail and quality craftsmanship.
Stay tuned… In the coming weeks we will be chronicling all that quality craftsmanship, taking you behind the scenes to reveal how the Bimmer’s transformation was pulled off. We will show you the car from its raw 1989 325ix roots to its M3 wagon glory. You’ll also see how we added V8 power to the equation via a 540i/six-speed manual swap.
Have fun in your garage!
