    E34 540i V 2.0, The Clean Edition

    Good news! Insurance payout came late last week, Not Totaled! They didn't even put up a fight after I denied their initial value and took my word on the current values, so glad this didn't turn into a nightmare battle like I've read about for others. The current auction price insanity on anything old and manual sure helps. All the parts new were available from BMW to repair this, the fender was the only part that needed to come over from Germany but I still hunted around for used parts. It didnt make too much sense to just paint a new door/fender when the whole car needs paint. Car-Part was a joke and prices were premium as well. LKQ pick and pull has a great CURRENT website for listing inventory so I scoured that around the country. There were at least 2 black E34's and several other colors as well among the Los Angeles area yards so I took the gamble on the parts I wanted being there. Luckily a side job gave me the opportunity to drive a 2020 F350 out west. I ended up going to 3 different LA LKQ yards and pulled the front doors off one and a fender off another, all perfectly rust free in Schwartz II. The fender does have a good dent towards the nose but paint isn't cracked and should be PDR'd easily. Bought a driver's door too since the door stay was ripped out when the car was bought. $150 total for all the parts was crazy cheap. Gonna wait to install these come spring as it's cold and I still have remodeling projects to tend too. I also want to rust proof each fender while off and clean things up.

    Once Upon A Time in Munich...

    The year was 1994. It was a summer evening, just after sundown on the outskirts of Salt Lake City. I hopped out of my Dad's Jeep Cherokee with my sister as we walked towards the used car section of the local Acura dealership. It was dark enough that the parking lot was illuminated and the view inside the showroom was clear and backlit. We must have been there looking for something cheap and uninteresting for my Mom to drive, something along the lines of a used Dodge Shadow or Mazda 626. I was very much into cars at that age, mostly obsessing over Mustangs, 1970's Broncos, Probe GTs and other Fords. Aside from the import cars every kid knew about in the early 90's: Ferrari's, Lamborghini's, and Porsche's thanks to bedroom wall posters at home and "Justification For Higher Education" poster inside the faculty office at school, I was mostly disinterested in anything else that didn't look fast, or wasn't sporting a blue oval. I especially was not interested in any of the new Acura models that were on the lot. Acura was a brand that I equated with Buick since I only really noticed older people driving Legends and the occasional Vigor. After a minute or two of walking around silently, my dad spoke up for the first time since we had gotten out of the car as he pointed inside the showroom. "That's the new Acura that's as fast as a Ferrari" I perked up and looked inside to see the brand new 1994 Acura NSX in Formula Red. I was taken by surprise that this once lame old-folks brand, Acura, had crafted such a stunning sports car. This picture of Senna's NSX inside some showroom is a fair representation of what my 9 year old self had witnessed inside the showroom that night. The blur adds a nice touch of realism since trying to remember that far back isn't quite crystal clear in itself. That evening brought about a paradigm shift in my assumptions about Acura and Acura became one of the "cool car brands" thereafter. Meanwhile in that same year, the much anticipated E36 M3 was being unveiled for America. Enthusiasts who subscribed to European Car or Performance Car magazine were undoubtedly grumbling at the neutered version that we would be receiving, down 42hp from the euro-market's 282 and perhaps finding out about a 6 speed manual that we would never get. Early 90's BMW enthusiasts probably scoffed at how much heavier the E36 was over the E30 M3 and how the heavy iron-block DOHC VANOS 6 cylinder strayed from the simplicity and lightness of the 2002 tii, E30 318is, E30 M3, and others that had come before. "BMW is changing, and I don't like it" they said. Perhaps this wasn't even the first time BMW enthusiasts had felt the company was going down a wrong path and were discouraged by the next iteration of the lineup. The "softening" of the E28 and E30 with the 528e and 325e likely drew plenty of criticism with their low revving engines and economy-minded gearing. These were not the Ultimate Driving Machines they were used to and this would certainly not be last time the brand loyalists would be struck with disappointment. BMW fanatics in the 80's were eventually able to move past the 'eta' cars and squash any fears that the brand was losing its way when the E30 325is and 318is came out a few years later along with a more handsome facelift. BMW owners in the 90's who may have had disappointment over the non-bespoke E36 M3 engine, and perhaps a plastic cooling system component or two, were able to accept change and move on from their initial disappointment as there were other exciting cars in the lineup such as the 540i/6 and the new Z3 roadster as well as whatever was to come. The aftermarket support and tuning community was alive and it was To its marketing department, and perhaps to a few hundred thousand enthusiasts worldwide, BMW is known as The Ultimate Driving Machine. “The Ultimate Driving Machine“ can be boiled down to a formula which is easy to catch on to once you have experienced it. -Near 50/50 weight distribution -Rear wheel drive -Manual transmission -Everyday practicality and comfort -Responsive steering and suspension -Great visibility -A refined powerplant -Subtle, timeless styling and charm and a dab of "luxury" amenities This has been the formula for BMW's success which has made BMW the benchmark for the entire industry, most notably the 3-series. In its day, the 2002 was more practical than an MGB GT, and had similar acceleration to the V8 Mustang Cobra, with much more nimble handling. For the driving enthusiast in the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s BMW ownership was a pretty obvious choice. Some cars may have offered a little more performance, a little more comfort, or were more affordable, but nothing else was nearly as well-rounded. A Corvette was fast but not practical. An Accord was practical but not sporty A Taurus SHO was a valiant attempt, but still just a Ford Taurus. But eventually the BMW advantage would become less clear and the playing field would become more level. ....... It was the year 2000. Y2k. The world breathed a massive sigh of relief when January 1st rolled around and the computers which controlled everything from VCRs to the World Banks and air traffic control systems partied like it was 1900. Everything was fine and our very computerized civilization did not succumb to an unknown fate as the double digit date systems rolled from 99 to 00. Cars too were increasingly bogged down with computers and technology, for better or worse. CAN BUS, throttle by wire, traction control, anti-theft systems and intelligent keys. Worst of all, somebody gave Chris Bangle access to a computer which helped him create one of the most controversial BMW designs yet. The E65 "Bangle-Butt" 7er. Until this point, the electronics and computer systems were certainly becoming more of a nuisance for the home mechanic who loved to keep their BMW passion affordable by doing some of the work on their own. But it was apparent that the technology was going to be increasingly hard to keep up with. The X5 was a thing. A tall, heavy, lumbering truck-like organism from a company touted for driving dynamics and performance. You were no longer able to get a BMW with a limited slip differential unless it was an ///M product. Things were starting to become different a bit more often. Amongst the unsettled feelings people may have had about some of the newer developments, enthusiasts took comfort in the exceedingly masculine, driver oriented, manual transmission only, V8 E39 M5. Familiar turf to keep ones interest in a time of uncertainty about our bloated and computerized future. Better yet was the highly anticipated E46 M3. A reminder to enthusiasts that the brand was not about to abandon its winning formula.

    I Have a Problem

    Got the engine back together and was still getting breakup issues around the 3500rpm mark, but wouldn't stumble if I was spinning tire at that point, and got worse as the engine warmed up. Being unsure of the quality of the chip tune, and long time desire to see this dyno tuned, it was finally time to take it in and see if the tune was to blame. After some wood and time to get it up the dyno ramps (it's not high off the ground...) it was nestled in and the tuning commenced. Yes the door was open for tuning. The first pull on the chip tune yielded a very lackluster 236hp and 231lbft of torque, and the breakup around 3500rpm really reared its head. I would be lying if I told you that I was happy with that amount of power, but rolled into it knowing that may happen. The tuner then took the existing tune out and tossed on one that he had from a roughly similar motor to see how it liked that. The pull was smooth and didn't break up with the new tune, and it sounded much better. I glanced at the screen and saw 296hp flash across it, and I looked at the tuner to verify what I had just seen. He hadn't looked at the number yet, so we went over and looked. Sure shit, first pull with a different tune and we gained 60hp. We were all quite impressed, as that was nearing the highest HP S5x they have ever seen NA, and its a specific E36 shop that builds many a motor. More tuning commenced and the motor responded really well to any changes and kept improving in powerband and peak numbers, though as the engine would heat-soak the breakup around 3500rpm would return no matter how much fuel or timing was added/removed. That one boils down to a hardware issue somewhere that I am working on tracking down. After a few hours of playing he finally determined that it was doing the best it could, and put down some serious numbers that everyone was happy with. We managed to pick up 75hp and 45ftlbs more torque on an NA engine which is simply astounding. The car is now making more TQ across the entire range than it made in horsepower on the chip tune. The rev limit is at 6600rpm right now and once I find that breakup issue when warm (affects rev limit also) I will be going back and having the limit moved up a fair bit as peak horsepower is at redline right now so I will likely continue to make more power. The car is an absolute machine now, it pulls hard and smooth throughout the whole range and I keep hitting rev limiter because at no point does it feel like I need to shift. Absolutely stoked with the whole tune, and the guys at the shop were great to work with.

    Once Upon A Time in Munich...

    The year was 2020. It was an unseasonably warm November evening, just after sundown on the outskirts of Milwaukee. I hopped into my E46 M3 with my 9 year old daughter who pleaded with me to go for one last drive in it before putting it away for the winter. On our drive we passed some dealerships and I decided to take a quick look at what was on the lot. As we walked towards the new car section of the local BMW dealership. It was dark enough that the parking lot was illuminated but still easy enough to see a new G22 chassis code 440i x-drive with its controversial front grille. I took a look around the car to see if the polarizing style would be better from different angles and wondered if within time I would get used to it and realize that perhaps BMW was brilliant and ahead of their time, but I just wasn't seeing it. Parked next to the 440i was a new fwd-based 228i listed for $45k and scoffed at both the price tag and how small the interior was, immediately thinking about who might buy such an expensive and impractical car. I kept walking expecting to see some kind of M-sport model that would catch my attention that perhaps I could look forward to owning sometime in the next 10 years. My daughter shares a sliver of my BMW enthusiasm and with curious excitement asked me which of all these new BMWs I would pick. I paused and looked around, taking her question fairly seriously. I glanced at the 4-series, a row of 2-series, some more basic 330's. "None of them. I honestly would not pick any of them.” In that peculiar moment I was surprised by my own response.was Once upon a time in Salt Lake City I was a 9 year old boy in the parking lot of an Acura dealership, struck with awe at a single car that captured my attention and completely changed my perception of a brand. Today, I am struck with awe that I cannot find a single car that captures my attention on the BMW lot. Once upon a time in Munich, the Ultimate Driving Machine was not so hard to identify. END

    Installed black anodized pedal covers from Turner Motorsports. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the way the rubber blocks on the existing pedal covers feel. Turner owes me a couple pieces of hardware as they were missing from the box but im sure they will have no problem sending what was missing so I will give them a call tomorrow.

    E46 Things

    It has been a beautiful week of driving! I even remembered to disconnect the battery tender before I pulled it out of storage and drove off. I received my Blackstone report today. The big question was if a 3,000 mile OCI is just right, or too late for an engine that makes a lot of revolutions per mile. Also beneficial is establishing a benchmark for future bearing condition estimation. I have not been fond of the high speed stability. It is stable enough but there isn’t much aligning torque and sometimes it tramlines way too easily on the freeway. Last summer when Big Bear checked the alignment, they set the camber plates at minimum caster since it leaves all of the camber bolts visible. I think they assumed I wanted to be able to adjust the camber easily (my best guess, see pictures below). The toe is fine within stock spec, but caster is less than stock which would explain the excessive tramlining. I’ve had enough and wanted to see how much difference it would make without wasting a trip to Big Bear and finding out something unsavory about running more caster. At full negative caster the steering is slightly heavier and the excessive tramlining issue is gone! This means I will need to schedule another appointment next time driving season starts up to get the alignment precisely dialed again, this time with an added helping of caster.

    Managed to get the flex sensor mounted under the car. I need to get two 6AN ptfe fittings to finish up the job (had the extra adapter fittings pictured laying around). I also decided to test my local premium 91 gasoline for ethanol content and contrary to what I've read on the internet, there is no ethanol (as advertised). The internet was saying even the premium-no ethanol still had some in it. Knowing the ethanol content is important because my current ve table is based on this fuel. The flex sensor should read this fuel as 0% and my will not add any fuel to compensate based on the flex multiplier table. Once the sensor begins reading ethanol %, the ECU will multiply my base ve table to administer the proper ratio. Hooray for being able to use any fuel available. The struggle of dealing with someone else wiring harness.....

    G80 M3 Redemption

    A German company by the name of Prior Design (think about that one) will be making aesthetically pleasing bumpers for ///Mr.Toothy. Funny to think that typical buyer questions for M3s will now be: E21: “did it really come with those M badges? I didn’t think there was an E21 M3...” E30: “Is the dash cracked?” E36: “Have the cooling system and VANOS been done?” E46: “Have the subframe, VANOS, and rod bearings been done?” E90: “Have the rod bearings and actuators been done?” F80: “Has the crank hub been done, and can you please delete whatever app it has that makes it do that burble thing?” G80: “Has the front end been done yet?” I would not be the least bit surprised to see a good looking LCI In a few years now that they hopefully realize their errors. When 2020 has you down, just know that there is hope for the future in a better looking G80

    **CLOSED** e36 M3 front suspension

    I'm actually researching this right now. My wheel choice is e38 style 5 (16x8 et23). -e46 325 front brake rotors are 300 x 22mm -e46 330 front brake rotors are 325 x 25mm (as Mitch noted^) and there's a really good chance my wheels won't clear these. -e36 m3 front brake rotors are 315 x 28mm (as Mitch noted ^), I don't think these would fit either ( might be close). After much thought all day with the help from @KaiserRolls & @m42b32 I think I will end up going with the IRP 5 lug conversion kit and run the e46 325 calipers/rotors. These will be a decent upgrade from the e30 260 x 22mm rotor and in fact, the e46 325 setup will be 1/10th of the price of a massive BBK which is also only 300 x 22mm! In closing, I'm going to mark this thread as closed and thank you all for the information. Appreciate it... -Nick

    So another year has come and gone and this small case old open 4.10 diff is still sitting in my garage untouched. For 2020: FREE to whoever wants it...but you have to come get it. The perfect solution for winter boredom: rebuild it on the off chance someone wants an open diff, hours of entertainment and much better than a cheap cardboard puzzle on your kitchen table, a throwaway unit to practice your diff welding skills, use it for feats of strength with your friends (annual WI Bimmers diff toss competition??), avoid embarrasing calls to AAA or EMTs and use it instead of your car or rocks in your pockets to test whether the ice is safe on a lake, help someone avoid getting this lump as a secret Santa gift.

    Finally got the carriers, so the calipers are on. Still need to get some anti-rattle clips. The e46 caliper piston is about 5mm larger than the e30. On another good note i've got the flex sensor harness run through the firewall and wired in, I will be working on mounting and plumbing that in soon. It's going to be badass not ever worrying about the fuel you put in the car. With the flex sensor the ECU will automatically adjust the VE table and ignition table for ethanol %.

    I Have a Problem

    Long time no update This thing has been a struggle. Things that were happening; engine was stumbling around 3200-3500rpm and sometimes wouldn't push past it, light throttle would allow those revs. Would hit some form of limiter far before what the hard limit is set to. I thought it may be due to 92 octane (10% ethanol) vs the tune being for 91 no ethanol. I tracked down some 92 no ethanol (technically not legal in WA) and tried that. No dice Hooked up a wideband to see what it was doing in that range and noticed that it would lean out on light accel and was running right on the edge of what seems comfortable for being too lean. Took the fuel pump out while I was trying to further investigate my lack of fuel gauge and was reminded of the time when the pump in this car was being changed and I noted you couldn't dangle a fuel pump with a piece of wire cable tied to the fuel pump bracket. I dropped the pump back down and verified the pickup of the pump was sitting on the bottom of the fuel tank. Drove again and the AFR's came back nicely, but still struggling a bit in that 3k and rev limit range, though I noted a strong increase in midrange torque. I had been monitoring spark plugs and cylinder tops and had noted that each time cylinder 6 was wet on top, and so was the half of cyl 5 that is near 6. Tried blowing them off to see if it was fuel from a leaky injector or something of the like and nothing happened. Cylinder 5 and 6 were the lowest in a compression test, so the head came off assuming the HG didn't manage to hold through the lean abuse. Off came the head, the old gasket did have faint notes of failure. I decided to go with another MLS as my last cut ring experience was not good, and I was unsure if the stock HG would allow for the 87mm bore pistons. When removing the old gasket it seemed thicker than it should be (.08" was the previous order) and I verified that this engine has been using a .100" thick gasket this whole time. A rough ratio shows that it brought the compression back to just about stock. I ordered stock thickness so we will see a hair above 11.5:1 compression now. Started reassembling the engine and got everything timed up and assembled, went to install the primary chain tensioner and it never got tight. Surprise no more threads in the tensioner hole. Called around to see who had an M26 helicoil with no success. Tried a local E36 shop who said on the phone they had them and could fix it, drove an hour there to drop it off, waited for 2.5 hours, then got a call saying they couldn't fix it and they didn't think they even made helicoils that big. That was a colossal waste of time and made me super happy. i ended up ordering a kit to helicoil it as I'm not super keen on welding in that hole and would still need to pay someone to bore it back out and tap it again. In good news I finally took it from the original (adorable) early 318i front brakes to the late model brakes with all new parts. Hoping to have the head back on by Saturday before I leave for another month work trip. .....This was supposed to be fun to drive and just small projects

    E30 Swap Content

    So I've been busy doing some swapping the last couple years and thought I should share what I've been up to. I currently have 2 e30s, red s52 supercharged and blue m50nv. I picked up an s54 with a 420g(6speed) that has a hole in the block. The head and cylinder are destroyed from what looks like a piston going through an industrial ninja mixer. The flywheel was a bonus, lightweight with new sachs clutch kit. I found a good cylinder head. I also picked up a mystery block that supposedly had 80k miles on it. Sure enough after disassembly, it looks as though it did. I cleaned everything up and am currently waiting for some new rings and rod bearings. My goal is to sell the s52, zf310(lightweight flywheel, act clutch)supercharger kit, and mspnp to swap in an s54 turbo. FS thread soon. For the s54, I'm going to use arp head studs and the oe mls gasket. The rod bearings are ACL. I'll be opening up the ring gap a little bit as well. Any input is great. I'm deciding what kit or parts to use for this build, as well as a hp goal. Definitely want to go turbo, more tq.

    I'm converting the rear to 5 lug using z4 hubs, this adds minimal width (like 2mm per side) unlike the z3 and ti swap. This will allow me to remove the 20mm spacer/adapters needed to run the e38 style 5's and add a much larger tire. Going from a 205/45-16 to a 245/45-16. Anyway, I need more traction...so it starts. An added bonus is the e46 325i brakes a quite a bit larger. I do have to say, the B90 paid for itself again...worth the investment 10 or so years later. Edit* forgot to add, the e46 rotors are also vented...check it out.

    ILC finally gets a roadster

    As noted, I don't have any crazy plans for the car so this thread will be mostly dead but I did just get the car back today from my detailer. 4 days of paint correction, headlight restoration, ceramic coating the car and wheels with Kenzo IGL, and proper interior treatments. Photos don't do it justice - Imola is truly gorgeous when it is this cleaned up. He wet sanded the entire car. Just above and beyond service. It pretty much looks like a new car now. If you look extremely close you can find a couple blemishes still but the paint is 98% new car quality again. No more fog in the headlights either. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmRDYwyh
