  1. E21 Project Thread - Part 2

    Mmm, those look meaty.
  2. Classic Daily huge moving sale!!!

    I’ll have to check it out then. It’s kind of a side thing for me honestly, I’m only gonna grab one if I can get it cheap, so if the seller doesn’t know what they have.
  3. chit chat thread

    I'd take a sticker or three with that design if you didn't want to make shirts, that'd look great on a toolbox or something
  4. Miscellaneous E30 Stuff

    I've just got like two things really that I need: - Door handle trim piece, the one with the four hooks on it. - Dimensions for the e36/z3 rack swap spacers for a non-airbag car. I've got the opportunity to machine them for free here at school in the machine shop, so I figured I might as well make them now and if I end up swapping the rack, I don't have to pay for it. I have some dimensions off of a forum, but they weren't all that descriptive or accurate sounding. Sorry if this isn't enough to start a thread lol
  5. Classic Daily huge moving sale!!!

    Yeah, not much that really gets my attention. If only they had a z3 rack...
  6. E30 Picnic 2018

    I’ll be there, can’t wait! And I’ll actually be in an e30 lol.
  7. Shop clean up...parts for sale

    Pm’d ya
  8. the one and only e30 s52 engine swap

    I just looked quick and I think all you have to worry about is using the same for both inner and outer rods, so either inner and outer e36 or inner and outer e30.
  9. M2 Competition

    I'm torn. I like the fact that they increased braking and cooling capabilities, but other than that I'm not really impressed. I agree, I'd rather have an engine with a little more soul and better noise instead of ~40 extra horsepower, especially when that kind of power increase can be achieved relatively easy on the n55. I'm indifferent on the wheels, they're not really that bad but they're not really that good either. I feel the same way about most of BMW's current wheel offerings actually, there really isn't much that stands out or catches my eye. Not a fan at all of the blue seat accents. Make it all black, and if you need another color have just offset color stitching. Even better, give us multiple color options on the interior, I think the alpine white with a cardinal or tan interior would look amazing. Also, I personally would rather have the development money for an illuminated headrest logo go towards something meaningful, like anything else. Big fan of the reported $2500 price increase over the car it replaces, I applaud them for not making it stupid expensive like some of the M4 variants.
  10. the one and only e30 s52 engine swap

    If I remember correctly, @m42b32 did a custom short shifter awhile back, that’s always an option. I’ll link the thread if I can find it. Edit: Here’s the thread
  11. the one and only e30 s52 engine swap

    Awesome progress, it’s looking great. What kind of rack did you pick up?
  12. Madison - 1988 E30 325i Convertible - Thread

    I’d be down for that, should we include all white BMW’s so @Jdesign isn’t left out with the white shark?
  13. M3 owner/broken BMW fixer

    Welcome to here! What are your impressions on the i3? Love the M3's and the e30!
  14. Going to Road America?

    I'm hoping to make it to the Hawk, but I've also been saying that for like 5 years now haha.
  15. What is your ideal build?

    I'd have to say for myself, it'd go something like this: E30 M3 front and rear suspension conversion, swap in an LSD at this time too Front X-brace, strut tower brace, Z3 rack Big brake kit Coils, but something and nice(read: expensive). I'd like to have a reduction in ride height and body roll without sacrificing comfort For the motor, either: -M20 2.9 or 3.1 stroker, RHD roller cam conversion, RHD ITB's, Megasquirt, long tubes, manual swap, etc. -Euro S50 with a 6 speed Recover the sport seats with one of the ///M fabrics or like a gray plaid center and black leather/vinyl bolsters Euro bumpers, euro front valance and lip, possibly a late model valance welded onto the rear as well? MTech I rear spoiler, either e28 or e30, rear plate filler, color the turn signals red in the rear Euro grilles, clear smilies up front Then for wheels, probably one of these: -BBS RZ 394 -Alpina Softlines -Apex ARC-8 There's probably more that I'm forgetting that I'd want, but that's the basic idea. I like the OEM+ look, nothing too crazy visually, somewhat comfortable to drive daily, competent on backroads, and just a blast to drive regardless of what I'm doing.
