      A nice touch of a BMW, i love what's going on here. Why doing it *after* rego runs out? And how do you keep rego while its electric? Registered as ... gasoline car?

        Since the conversion is considered an engine swap, it'll need a blue slip after I'm done anyway. I'll let the rego run out and wait until the conversion is done to get new rego, saving me the money of rego'ing a car that won't be driven for several months. Once the conversion is done and the engineering certificate is issued, it'll be registered as an electric car.

          Well, i have to admit, i never was and probably will never be a BMW Fan, but your'es does really look nice.

          Also, it seems that the reputation of EV Cars differ from country to country. Here in Germany, EV's aren't slow in acceleration, but most of them top out at about 160-170 km/h and in germany nearly everybody is driving that speed (sort of) on a daily basis, they are expensive, you'll never going to get 1200 km out of one Battery Charge with a decent sized car and driving on long trips with an average speed of probably 150-180 km/h (the Mercedes C220CDI of a friend of mine, does exactly that. 1200 km on one tank with an average speed of 150-160 km/h). And on top of all that, they are absolutly not environmental friendly.

          I hate to be that guy, but every time i hear something about EV Cars, i aks myself: Why?

          Yes, if you're just looking at the environmental footprint driving the car with clean and renewable energy, they are pretty much perfect.

          But it seems to me nobody is looking at the environmental "costs", regarding the batterys, inverters, chips and so on, because alone with the cost of a big lithium battery, you could drive and service an old car with a big v8 probably another 15-20 years.
          Yes, i know, thats not really the point of an EV Car, but that whole discussion about EV Cars is just incomplete without that...

          Anyway, BTT:

          Thats a really nice and very clean build you're doing, keep up the great work!

            Well i had to look that up but omg go the diesel!

            We are running out of fossil fuel, people need to pioneer alternate methods.
            remembering too the petrol car has had out society by the nuts since 1885. over 100 years of development.
            The electric car got pushed under the rugs as not enough people make enough money out of the principal. The technology behind it has seen hardly any progression and meanwhile auto company are persevering with a focus on what keeps them in business. Once EV's get some time to mature i think they will be the flavor for the common commuter.

            And M.

                Awesome conversion. I kind of hope that one day in the future I'll be able to drive any old car into a shop and get a hydrogen electric conversion done.

                    That green e30 EV BMW is pure sex. I love it. Seen it all over the EV scene, it's very nicely done.

                    The conversion is on track to start when the current rego runs out in April. The only thing that might postpone it is if I end up doing a conversion on somebody else's car instead. We'll see what happens.

                        will it drift..? If so will it be the first drifting EV? Really enjoyed reading this thread, cheers!

                          It very likely will. Dunno if it'll be the first though.

                          It's official though, my conversion is on hold for a bit. Gotta save up more money (my summer job didn't end up being as lucrative as I'd planned, and uni is about to start again). Development on the components will continue though, and I'll continue to update this thread.

                              Such a awkward project i have to say, but it's still very interesting, do you think you will manage to generate some good hp to still have fun with it? Same hp has it was stock fuel? It's a really interesting ideia, not so affordable trough but if you can pay such costs go for it, it sure will be one of a kind

                                Considering that it's currently a stock 318is, it will significantly faster after the conversion. My current predictions (calculated, not guessed at) are 0-100 around 5.5s, so M3 territory. It'll be quite fun to drive, yes :-)
