Precision Sport Industries created an E30 M3 Matte DTM race car using a 1:18 scale model as a guide.

The DTM project was done with matte in mind and the mod list includes S52 Swap w/ OBD 1 Conversion, full custom exhaust and RD Sport RHD Headers, Euro 3.5 HFM w/ 24 lb injectors, Custom AA tuning, 3M Matte Black Complete Wrap, 3M Matte DTM Livery w/ Custom Cut Matte Decals and Lambo Pearl Yellow Striping, 17 inch Hartge 3 piece Wheels, TC Kline Racing SA Coliover Suspension and RECARO Pole Position Seat.

Based on the 1986 model year E30 3-Series, the first M3 was introduced with a 2.3 L I4 S14B23 engine (also known as S14). The engine design was based on various BMW parts: basic block layout from the M10 4-cylinder (found in the 2002 and 320 series) overbored and reinforced to similar specifications of the BMW M88 inline-6. To this date, the E30 M3 is considered one of the most emotional M vehicles to date and a darling of BMW enthusiastic community.
