    1989 E30 325i Progress

    Had an opportunity to get a lower mileage m20b25 for a good deal and they delivered it. Plans are to disassemble it and then rebuild it over the summer and maybe put it in next winter. I figured with the age of these cars having a spare drivetrain is a good idea. Also working on cleaning up the spare g260.

    CL - E30 tan sport seats

    Found on CL. They look like they are in great condition. If my car had a tan interior I'd be all over them. https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/pts/d/milwaukee-bmw-e30-leather-seats-325is/6789345940.html

    A purists nightmare - E46 drift build

    Firmiliar sight here. Got pretty much everything disconnected to pull the engine and trans out. Planning to check things over along with replace the clutch. Found out I'll need to replace an axle as one of the boots is starting to seap grease. Also need a new driveshaft because the damn u-joint has some play in it. Wish these u-joints were serviceable 😑

    I saw a really nice condition Grey one last Sunday and tried to impress him with my xc70 and moose stickers. I was ignored.

    Stock wheels look better IMO... Looks good. You could always use some small spacers if you want it to look more aggressive. Those are 6x5.5 wheels right? What kind of offset? I have some Taco steelies that I used on my cruiser for a while that would be good winter wheels.

    Well it didn't last long! Got rid of the 540 earlier in the week. It was one problem after the next and wasn't worth any real money. I can use the money to keep the E36 on track as well. I did do some upgrades to the current daily to improve its usefulness in snow. I said bye to the bro truck wheels and hello to stock wheels with BFG All Terrain KO2's. I'd be lying if I said I didn't like the way it looked before! But, I should see increased MPG's, the ride is nicer, the tires are quieter, and man do they grip! I look forward to more snow to see what they do.

    Wow mhd makes some quality stuff even messed with the burble a little bit for lunch shenanigans. Now to get the intercooler mounted
  16. I have no idea what size tire I will end up with. Its whatever shows up for sale that might fit. So 31" may or may not be what I find. I rather stay away from changing a whole lot for suspension minus MAYBE making lift spacers for the front struts. I rather cut into the car if its not structural vs. changing the suspension components.
  17. I'm very curious to see your clearance plans to fit a 31" tire at that ride height. 5" spacers are huge! Have you thought about making longer suspension bits? I have had all kinds of horrible/awesome ideas to make that happen with the E30.

    Some good stuff last night. Got the hole in the driver rear wheel well patched up and coated with undercoating. And put a hitch on the wagon.

    Well got everything to work and installed mhd stage 1+ time for the trial run
  20. I feel like its time to check in with you guys on the status of this machine.... Its sadly not lifted yet I mounted one tire to the 16" Procast as you saw above. I determined that it will not work unless I buy 5" spacers for all 4 corners. Im not doing that. my original plan was to flip a set of style 5's and get some aggressive 17" tires. I am still on the look out to go this route. The rear sub frame and axles are all completely apart and I began blasting everything. I did not finish this process yet due to the sandblasters lack of interior lighting. I have since ordered LEDs for the inside of the cabinet and will continue once I install them. getting back to the smushed axle threads, I will in fact need new M3 axles. Still on the hunt for these. Cam and Gear drive THe gear drive is here, but I have still yet to order a cam. There are some many variables to ordering a cam due to the 30 odd years of production of this motor, I want to make sure I order the right cam for the job. I need to do more research. Gastank Still leaks, and I sigh everytime I look at it. That is all for now. Here is a rendering of the Phuture so this is not a pictureless post:

    My engineer father in law says 10 cents a mile usage for the life of a vehicle on a purchase. So if you spend 10k and drive it for 100k miles it was a good value. That was pretty easy on my cheap e36 lol. I was just joking about the $4/hr meaning I spent a lot of hours working on the car so if I want the math to come out my labor would be cheap. If I was only concerned with getting a good value from the vehicle I would have bought a throwaway Camry or something. The cost of ownership on a performance car is always higher per mile, but on a good car it's worth it. And I enjoy working on cars so that is a factor too. This was a fun car to own for a while and I am glad it's going to a good home. I wonder how many VRs are still around, there were only about 3500 imported for the whole 04-07 production run. A lot have likely been wrecked either from collisions or awful modifications.

    Congrats! I was getting nervous when I checked in at 21 hours left and it was around $4k iirc. I'm curious where you came up with your valuation of 10cents/mile. And $4/hr... Dude, I don't know if you need a hug or something but your time's worth more than that!
  25. I didn't say I was against this but "Wow, that looks like something a stripper might wear" was the first thing that came to my mind. Strippers and cocaine... continue.

    New non BMW ride '05 V70R

    SOLD! To a gentleman from Pennsylvania. $9200 via BaT. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2005-volvo-v70-r-5/ Not quite what I thought it would bring but not terrible. All in I paid 7200 for it in August 2015. Drove it from 165-200k. I put about $3500 in parts into it so that is $10,700. If you value mileage at 10cents/mile then I got $3500 usage from it. So if I value my time at about $4/hr it was a good deal However I did own a unicorn car for 3 and a half years and get it prepared to drive another 200k miles instead of ending up in a facebook marketplace part out thread. It is pretty intense to watch your car being auctioned with the clock ticking. I learned a lot and would totally do it again. Now to get the van driving! Road America vintage races. It will be there.
  28. Thus why I think it will go with a car designed in the strippers and cocaine era.
  29. i think every italian designer has 'nude women' somewhere in their design inspiration
