Any of you guys drive an E30 by the way? Ive got a bunch of b/s from when I had a 89 325e (or 87 i think, i dont remember). Water pump, expansion tank vent hose, m20 engine fan. Im selling it for dirt as is but ill cut you guys an even better deal. Also have a laguna seca blue fender I painted myself, FREE! Drivers side, sedan.

I hear ya man. Personally id never rock those on an E36 but respect for doing what you want. Although it makes me think of how cheap the E36s are getting and how many ex-honda owners are now defacing the chassis and ricing them out it looks like you executed the job pretty well. What did you torque the bolts too?

I cant decide if I should refinish my Style 19s or not. For the style 5s id either want to do white face or gold face with polished lips + gold bolts.

Sorta like these.

They're going on my shwartz black e46. I havent started reassembling them yet, ill do that after the Barcelona game this afternoon. I've read anything from 15-26lb, so I'll probably aim for 22lb and adjust as required.

I just dislike doing things someone else has already done. Dont get me wrong, they do look good, but "good" is objective and can come in more than a couple schemes, I figured I'd try black/green.

Got a spare from my old M3 if you need it. Otherwise mishimoto time or something.


and **** my life aswell.



All these bastards rusted and are a pain in the *** to re-use!!! EDIT: Oh and by the way if you guys ever loose your stud install nuts, you can use two cam tray stud nuts. OBDI works better because they dont have the spinning flange at the bottom.




p.s. if anyone has any studs to sell me shoot me a pm.

Someone wanna give me some stock headers? Found my leak.

Also the reason I am getting the car so cheap,

Doors handles screwed, headliner falling, exhaust broken at the header, throwing a few codes relating. Drives nice, belts are a little worn. Body is really nice though. Seats have typical bolster wear, wheel bearing out.

I cannot wait to take it home. 500$ cannot go wrong. Parts are really cheap compared to my TT. Idk wtf I will do with 3 cars though.

1-2 Gals of BMW coolant, that doesn't cause electrosis. And 1-2 gals of distilled bottled water (not spring)

Cant tell if srs.... :shifty :4ngie


Seriously id be willing to do a headgasket for you if you swap some motorsport handles in for me. lol. No joke I hate everything that has to do with the door. The panels, the clips, regulators, window replacement, door handle lock swap. I guess its just a personal thing.

T-stats usually come with gaskets. Yet spares are always welcome in my house. 88 degree is stock, no?

You might only need one gal of BMW coolant since its a 50/50 mix, I cant remember I run straight water now. (****s expensive! - dave chappelle voice).

Check your pulley tensioner out before you order the new belts.

And I need some of those spark plugs! lol.

Yeah I believe 88* is stock. Also my tensioner was done when my Vanos got fixed . I already have a Stewart high flow on there.

Was the spal kit a ***** to install? I'm on the fence about it because the wiring/install seems like a pain. I may go with a new clutch/fan. Not sure yet

I'm so stoked for them. I checked the VIN of the car they are coming off of and it says they are power lumbar, power bolsters and heated.

All my research indicates that the power bolsters work off the same input as the lumbar, and my car already has heat/power lumbar, so I'm hoping it'll be a plug-and-play swap. Waiting for the truck is gonna be hell.
