Check out the rules of the series you intend to run with and do your homework on the 5 vs 6 speed (5 is lighter, 6 is more stout - maybe...). You'll want to address the cage, chassis and diff reinforcements first obviously.

I was moments away from buying a 330i coupe donor and ultimately shifted towards a Miata platform after tallying up the expected costs.
I have a few people wanting to go down this rabbit hole, and luckily one guy was a forumla Drift driver at one point so we can build anything.
