Hybrid E36 BMW 3 Series

Don’t be deceived by the title, as I am not talking about a green minded owner, but rather a undecided one.

The hybrid part of this particular build refers not to the motivation unit, but to the bodywork itself.

Of the big German car makers, BMW and Mercedes-Benz have always been at each other’s throats, and for every 3 Series BMW built, Mercedes presented a C Class to counter. Comparisons are all over the internet, and while most choose a side, others find it quite difficult.

So did the owner of this E36 BMW 3 Series, who couldn’t decide which of the two brands he likes most. The only logical conclusion came in the form of a BMW-Merc hybrid, with the front end of the E36 being reworked using E46 parts and the rear using second generation C-Class bits.

If there is at least one good thing about this build, is that the integration of all the parts was done almost seamesly, even if faithful fans from each side would fret over this abomination. If you think this is a good way to go, the owner is selling his creation (perhaps after having an epiphany), so go look it up.
