    After lusting over the F80 M3 and F82 M4 for years, I finally found myself in the position to purchase one. I didn’t want to settle on just any F8X, I needed the perfect one. Since I already have a BMW 135i for the track and a BMW 335i for daily duties, I wanted a modern weekend warrior. I found myself leaning towards the M3 because of its wide rear hips and the practicality of a 4-door sedan. After searching nationwide for about a month with no luck, an M3 that matched my criteria popped up in Madison! Meet my 14th BMW, but my first ///M... 2015 BMW M3 with 46K miles Mineral Grey Metallic Black Extended Merino Leather Manual Transmission (6MT) Driver Assistance Plus Executive Package Lighting Package Adaptive suspension Carbon Fiber Roof Harman Kardon Surround Sound System It's stock right now but I have a boatload of modifications on the way. I'll be working with Kies Motorsports and a few other companies for this M3 build. My vision is a functional, good-looking weekend car. But knowing me, I'll probably blow right past that Some of you might already watch my BMW YouTube videos (just hit 26K subscribers!), but I'll be documenting this build on my channel as well. I'll also be posting exclusive high quality photos on my Instagram. I'd encourage anyone who is interested to subscribe/follow on those platforms as well. I usually post on YouTube/IG first, then follow up on the forums as I have time to type up written content.

    the one and only e30 s52 engine swap

    Differential was fully dissembled for the case and cover to be sent in for sand blasting. That Thursday I dropped the case and cover off at a local industrial painting shop. I stuffed the casing full of newspaper and duct taped the holes to help prevent to much sand from getting inside or hitting the bearing races for the pinion gear shaft. The following day after work I picked them back up. As for the smaller components I threw a wire wheel on a die grinder and went to town cleaning them up. After going through and de-greasing/blowing everything off I prepped all the metal with some por-15 metal prep to add an extra etch to the metal for better adhesion. It's a pretty simple task, just simply brush it on all the areas where paint will be applied and let it sit for a half hour. Once a half hour has past rinse everything off with water and your set to go. Did two medium coats of por-15 waiting about an hour in between coats. After the last coat I let it dry for a full 24 hours. While the paint dried I started on the lsd rebuild. As a refresher this is getting the 3 clutch disc upgrade from thayer motorsports increasing the lock up to around 50%. The rebuild is very straight forward and Thayer includes a link on their site with a step by step process. Biggest thing here is taking your time and double and triple checking yourself making sure everything is in the right order facing the correct way. After removing all the guts I did soak the lsd unit in de-greaser cleaning it thoroughly before beginning reassembly. Remembering to lubricate every component with diff oil as it is being installed is crucial. Left over parts after the rebuild was the two old clutchs and dog ears, 4 mm spacer that the third clutch takes the place of and the eight old carrier cap screws. The following day I removed the masking off everything and cleaned everything once more through. I also threw a few light coats of satin clear to the diff cover to protect from corrosion. First part of the rebuild is reinstalling the rear pinion gear. I did replace the clamping bushing and the dust cover. After inspecting the bearings I chose to reuse the original ones as they were still in good shape. Being that I hadn't changed anything with gear clearances I simply torqued the nut down to 137 ft lbs as specified from bmw and what I confirmed on a couple threads on other forums and called it good. After installing the freshly rebuilt lsd with the ring side retainers and axle shafts I took a little red paint and brushed it on the ring gear and spun it a full turn to ensure that the gears were still properly meshing. I also checked for any crazy amounts of backlash which was also within spec. Used some permatex "the right stuff" gasket maker to seal the diff cover to the diff. After ensuring the preload of the pinion gear was within spec I popped in a new locking plate for the nut. Added 1.75 qts of castrol 75w-140 diff fluid which includes the lsd additive needed for the clutch plates. Also popped in the speed sensor with a new o-ring and metal plate. She is ready to be installed in the car. 3.73 diff that was in the car on the right. On to the next thing. In a previous post @KaiserRolls mentioned the detent pins in the zf trans. I had not looked into these and did a bit of research as well as checking that it didn't need the replacement done. One of the major signs of failure was the shifter not popping back to center after pulling it out of 5th gear. Luckily everything still felt good. New guide tube came in and the damaged one from the clutch disc was replaced. After that was all said and done and the clutch disc was flipped around the correct way the trans was re-installed. Also installed a fresh guibo \ For the manual e36's the 325i guibos were thinner and a bit smaller while the e36 m3 guibos were slightly larger and thicker. If you chose to run the m3 guibo which I preferred the dssr has to be modified. They usually are bent in order to add clearance. Being that I would have had to make a whole new dssr I instead chose to grind away the area that came in contact with the guibo. I over did it on the grinding in order to insure I had no clearance issues. I always knew about the bent dssr's but never knew why until now. After re-installing I found that I had plenty of clearance now. Up next... brake cooling. About a year ago I drew these up on Solidworks in a class I was taking and had them cut out on the water jet. As for the tubing portions I had some left over 2.5 inch stainless exhaust tubing laying around that I cut into sections and had my buddy tig weld them up. In order to get the adapters for the air ducts on the valance attached I picked up some jb weld plastic bonder. The stuff is designed to attach plastic to metal so I thought I'd give it a try. After letting it dry for about an hour it was solid and definitely not coming off. Towards the beginning of March I ordered some ducting tubing 2.5 inch on amazon. I ordered two 1 meter sticks which would be more then plenty for both sides. Unfortunately, I did not take any pics of the backing plate installed but it fit up really well. I did have to cut out the original dust shield in order to fit these up. My bigger challenge with this hole setup was where to route the ducting. Originally I thought I'd just run it right through the hole that the factory duct ran through but I ran into issues with the wheel rubbing on it when turning in. I found that my only option was to route straight back and then along the bottom of the frame rail up to the front. I didn't really have any other method to hang it other then zip ties so I got some beefier ones to make sure it was tight in place but not to tight that it would collapse the tubing. Plenty of clearance with the wheel turned in and enough flexibility with it all the way out. After this was finished I had the car back on the ground and buttoned up the last little bits and pieces. The same day I took the car out for a short drive around the neighborhood and I found the car was running really rich and there was a ton of drone in the cabin. After taking a look through tuner studio I had found that I had left the flex fuel sensor settings enabled and it was messing with the tune. After disabling it the car was back to normal running at the right afr's and no more drone. I never did take any pics or mention anything about it but I did get a flex fuel sensor installed. I ordered a gm sensor which seemed to be the popular option among many tuners. I ran the sensor on the feed line right below the intake manifold where it goes from hard line to rubber hose. I ordered a gm pig tail as well and wired that in except for plugging it into the ms unit which I decided on waiting to do tell I get the car back into the tuner to get it tuned for 91 octane fuel so I have the option to run both e85 and 91. The following Sunday morning I took the car for a drive down to the local gas station and ran it through the car wash. First impressions with the new setup were pretty great. The zf trans shifts so smooth compared to the g260 and with the power numbers I am making it handles it so well. The stage 3 clutch surprisingly does not feel that much heavier over the stage 2 and with the zf trans the pedal feels like it is much less grabby and has a more consistent feel. Right away I took the car for a 25 mile drive of very easy driving to break in the new lsd clutch packs properly. Still on the list to get done is finding some replacement seats and ordering some fresh rubber for the upcoming season. Very excited for this summer and really hoping this pandemic pans out soon.

    Dont quote me on the thread size. I was high on Fun Dip when I googled that. The reason we all cant have a drive with perfectly running cars at the same time is it would be the final straw that would end the world.

    Finally re-worked the exhaust mid section. I got rid of the crappy glass-pack and replaced it with a pair of more substantial mufflers Before (old pic): After: I promise the welds are less boogery than they look in the picture. I'm going to re-paint it sometime this summer, so for now I reinstalled everything and took it for a test drive (also first drive of the year, this car is so fun). Its not necessarily much quieter, but the awful rasp is significantly better and it finally sounds half decent. The ground clearance is a little worse but I'm overall really happy with how it came out.

    Here's what I got done on my winter to-do list: - Complete the e36/Mclaren F1 window switch retrofit - nope - Re-do exhaust mid section - nope - Finish horn relay/wiring - nope - Diagnose/fix driver's front running light (currently no power) - nope - Re-do water temperature sensor ground - nope - Once the weather warms up in the spring, repaint all the faded trim and a few other things - nope - Maybe some other stuff - nope I did stop by the garage yesterday and cranked it over with the fuel pump relay pulled to build oil pressure, then popped the relay back in and it fired right up! Can't wait for driving season!

    So, I finally took some time to work on this. Despite the parts being moved around the shop as I tended to other projects, I finally moved the crate for the last time and got this going last weekend. Up on the lift I pulled the old wheels off and found that one of my spacers became no longer hub centric.. Besides that I was able to get 6"s of lift out of the coilovers up front before the bottom of the uprights hit the control arms. I made a slight adjustment back down to prevent this. In the future I might need to add a spacer to the subframe and control arm bushings to get more lift and travel out of this set up. I also had to remove the brake lines from mounting locations as the flex section was maxed out and would have prevented me from turning. The PO deleted the ABS and its a mess, so I might find myself addressing the brakes again in the near future, but for now I will just weld tabs for new "lower" mounting locations to allow the lift. I had to remove the front bumper due to the tires rubbing and I was unsure if I wanted to trim it and the filler panel with the kidneys. After I removed it I test fit the front wheels and kind of like the look with no bumper cover. I might need to attach some kidneys of some sort just because of the BMW factor but I will revisit this later. I then started the rear last night which was a whole different situation. I started by removing the over fenders and exhaust. As mentioned earlier, I was upgrading to ///M Swing arms and axles. So with that, I have all new bushings, subframe, control arms, control arm supports, ETC. I am swapping out everything besides the shocks, brakes, and diff. I was able to remove everything without any major issues. Once everything was set aside, I started to trim the arches more to allow the bigger tires. After this I gave up for the night and will return tonight. ...... But obviously I had to see how it looked on the ground, so I set it all in place and lowered the car back on the ground. Needless to say I was pretty happy with the results.

    New build! E90 M3

    I bought a few things recently and yesterday one of them showed up! I ordered a set of VRSF catless downpipes from Extreme Power House last week since ECS will not sell catless parts. I originally wanted Rogue Engineering test pipes from Bimmerworld because the price is great but they were out of stock and when I called it in they told me Rogue was terrible with in-stocks and they estimated at least 2-3 months. I did some searching and found that VRSF made a catless downpipe and it was only $20 more than the Rogue option on sale right now. I had used VRSF in the past and trusted they would have a quality part at a great price and I wasn't disappointed. The installation was pretty straight forward. Remove the exhaust, measure where to cut, cut out cats, attach new pipes, floor it. The benefit is extra horsepower and increase in eargasms. There's a few useless pictures and the video doesn't do this mod justice. I have it paired with the Borla Atak mufflers and in my opinion, it sounds phenomenal. It has added more bark and volume to the sound in the mid to upper rev range and added more depth and complexity to the overall tone through the range.. Apparently, without a tune, it has added more power but I can't honestly tell if it "feels" like more power because the noise has changed or if there actually is until I get it back on a dyno. I was worried about it being too loud but at cruising rpm's there is a only a slight increase in volume and it doesn't get loud unless I want it to.

    The "everyone is a f*in idiot and now I need to react or I'll be the one suffering from their idiocy": Case in point when I went to the grocery store when this all started I saw the near empty toilet paper. I knew everyone was being dumb, but also knew if I didn't also get some, zero might be left when we actually needed more. I bought a reasonable single package of TP. i'd like to add that if someone here has kids or a person in their family incapable of personal cleaning in the event of no toilet paper, we would gladly share. reasonable adults can learn how to wash up without TP. i was trying to explain cloth diapers to someone recently and they couldnt understand the concept of something ever being clean after having shit on it. 1st world problems, jeesh.

    she's up! still lovin these cribs I built for the e34 trans swap. yeah they take up more space than a jack stand, but they are more stable and easier to use almost everything went smoothly with disassembly. small snags - when i went to hammer the subframe pins up through the chassis they wouldnt budge. took a closer look inside the cabin to find that the holes had been filled with body filler when the car was originally painted. i've removed these pins on two other e30s and have never seen this before. *shrug* nice to see 30 year old hardware that looks like the day it was assembled. also had one of the subframe bushing sleeves stuck in the body. i've "been here done that" so I tried the first stage of removal - putting a lag bolt through the side of the sleeve (i did not have a big enough bolt to run up through the hole.) first i grinded a flat on the sleeve so I could drill a hole. make sure you drill through both sides of the sleeve. then i ran a concrete lag bolt (hardened) through. then just put a long screwdriver or other sturdy pokey object from the cabin down through the hole and give er some hits. after a bit of wrestling, the subframe is out! not a bad process. i'm a pro at removing my exhaust and driveshaft because of my driveshaft woes, so this only took about 4 hours. i also got lucky in that the rear ABS sensors and ebrake cables just popped right out of the trailer arm without a fuss. is anyone out there in the land of wibimmers still powdercoating parts?

    T H I S. More progress last night. I got the AGK reinforcements welded in. It was more work than I expected, and I also had a quick panic as the fuel lines for the fuel expansion tank were still in the car and I may have had a small fire😆. Cleaned Mocked Welded Painted I also got all the rear brake lines replaced. My last challenge is to finish repainting the control arms, diff, and swap the delrin bushings from the old swing arms to the new ones.

    I figured the rust wasnt removing enough weight fast enough. Also needed room for this With nothing in the back of the car, I noticed that the car was starting to tip off of the lift so I had to strap it down LOL Some quick C.A.D. I found some nice sheet metal at my work from an industrial washing machine, which made a perfect new floor. I will be using the same stuff under the rusty sections too before I fully flintstone the car.

    Heres my year and a half update lmao This past summer I basically did nothing to the car, my Passat sat dead in the street and I just daily drove the M3 in near stock form. In early November I got the Passat going and the M3 went into hibernation, I've slowly been doing random things here and there and put in a big order recently My goals for the spring are to have the suspension completely sorted, lose a ton of weight and do some engine upgrades to try and make a little more power, I really want to get into doing some autocross and make a all around nice street car for the weekends that feels a little bit more raw to drive The first thing I did was a deep clean, the interior and engine bay got pretty dirty driving the car every day last summer The LTW seats are going to be washed and extracted soon. For a while I really wanted bucket seats but I decided the best thing to do for the car is to just keep the full factory airbags and restraints in place. Pulled out my broken SAP and got the delete plates The harness for my HK amp was cut when I got the car, and the radio was missing. All of the speakers were replaced with cheap Infinity ones so I just pulled them all out. I dont really ever listen to music when I drive the car, and believe it or not I probably saved about 40lbs between all of the speakers, the amp and the cassette player Factory LTW radio delete panel Next I wanted to pull some more weight, so I moved to the rear of the car to pull out all of the trunk carpet, sound deadening and rear seats. I want to keep this clean, so the factory wires will all be loomed and I'm thinking the rear seat area and trunk will be sprayed and glossed in the factory color by a friend of mine at a body shop in the spring everything forward interior wise I'm keeping, all of the carpet and interior panels I've been looking into light weight batteries so I can shed another 25lbs from the rear I'm going back to plastic headlights because they weigh a lot less then my glass ones, and they also look gross missing all of the inside covers Brand new floormats New flex disc, center support bearing, fuel filter, all the bolts and exhaust hangers etc. For power upgrades I picked up a bimmerworld 3.5" intake elbow and got rid of the asc throttle body. I also picked up a AFE intake used, but unfortunately the head shield weighs like 20lbs, is rusty af and it doesn't fit quite right with the 3.5" maf even with trimming the bimmerworld elbow a ton. The intake is for a 3" setup, but the inside diameter of the pipe is close to 3.5", it bottle necks right before it to probably around 3.25", but I don't think it'll make a noticeable difference? As long as I can prevent heat soak Picked up a M50 manifold kit from bimmerworld, and Gibsons came through with a absolutely perfect M50 manifold for like $10 Soon I'll be looking into getting some headers and a tune of some sort I also picked up a UUC clutch stop, poly trans mounts, shifter rebuild parts and the bimmerworld pedal cover set in black (that I forgot to take pictures of installed) I'd couldn't recommend the covers more, they are super grippy, not flashy and improve the pedal feel so much After 2 months, my custom race height RTD V2 shifter and DSSR came in the mail, so I'm really excited with how it's gonna feel Another thing that I had to wait for and got lucky with, a factory BMW motorsport shift knob to go with the RTD shifter. @Rekpoint sold me some kind of GT style low rise wing, probably gonna try and get risers for it Also tracked down a pacific BMW plate frame, from the dealership that my car was sold new at Andddd on Saturday I'll be picking up a first gen Max Velocity Evo splitter from the Plymouth area! Sorry this update is all over and I'm a incompetent writer

    Update. Been busy with some personal stuff but finally got some time to get to the shop. Pulled out the main hoop and got it completely welded. Which was a daunting task for me leading up to it. I can weld and do fab work but when it came to something this permanent I got nervous about my welding skills. But it went well 😊 so confidence re-instilled. Then I cleaned up all the seam sealer under where the rear box plated for the main hoop will be and re-tacked them in. Forgot to take a pic but it wasnt much of anything exciting. Before putting the main hoop back in we "clearanced" the rear seat area with the good ole attitude adjuster. Aka hammer. The idea was to make room for the chassis harness to slide back down next to the bottom of the main hoop. Really excited on how that little detail turned out. Next we threw in the main hoop and tacked it in place again, then I got the rear down bars properly aligned and squared up and did a final weld on them to the main hoop. Hoping to make more progress next weekend!

    I resisted the urge to pull the e21 out of storage while I was there. I did take the snows off the compact though, so if it snows next week it's partially my fault, but I wanted to try on the style 30s that I picked up recently. So 90's. They're wrapped in some 600 treadwear falken all-seasons that grip about as well as you would expect. Ride quality is much improved over the koseis, which is what I was going for (it's official; I'm old). Kosei K1s will be for sale once I clean them up and take some pictures, if anyone is interested.

    Back on the ground and it fired right up. The coolant “leak”/drip must’ve fixed itself because I Can’t see anything dripping from the area. Before I took it out I had to add some more power steering fluid and re align the steering wheel after having the steering shaft out during the firewall boot install I need to get this ABS light off the dash, it’s super annoying. Also sometimes the brake fluid light flashes, it’s full though. need to wash it so badly

    new wheel bearing pressed in. hub pressed into the new bearing. smooth as butter now. both procedures done with the FWD bearing kit. antiseize applied between the bearing and the trailing arm, for good measure. pulled the ebrake cables. after undoing the nut in the cabin and pushing the cables down from the ebrake lever, i found that when I went to get under the car to pull them from the chassis, they had already fallen out of the chassis. #sorrygabe very little corrosion on either end. I am lucky! started disassembly of the diff by cleaning some of the anti-corrosion coating off just the faintest whiff of the "S" stamp left. i think ill try to repaint it nice in the end.

    a little more progress today. in my haste to remove the subframe bushing pins, i forget I borrowed mike's homemade puller tool which is a through-bolt style. this required me to backtrack and take that lag bolt back out lol was worth it, as the tool worked great, thanks @HipMF ! fully extracted, no burning or mess. the workbench is now full of mini projects. the "subframe overhaul" consists of: clean everything replace passenger side rear wheel bearing replace subframe/trailing arm/diff bushings reseal differential (output seals, rear cover gasket, sensor gasket and fill plugs crush washers) install new ebrake cables install rear brake lines (body to subframe SS soft lines) install new rear sway bar bushings and end links install ebrake rebuild kit (shoes and springs) maybe powdercoat odds and ends

    Another daily driver thread: E34 525i

    That was poorly worded. I don’t own a set and am balking at paying the $100 for them to use once. I’ll do it if I have to, but I’d rather borrow a set. I’ll have to take you up on that, thank you!

    Trunk carpets in. Could’ve got fancy with cutting them out for my adjusters and strut brace, but just cut them short instead. I do have the plastic battery cover, it’s just a tiny bit awkward to affix and it’s nice not having to tear anything apart for tech - so I won’t be using it most likely

    E46 Things

    Progress this week: -Asked @Jdesign which shop near me wont scratch my wheels during a rotate/balance, he suggested Midcoast Auto in West Allis so I dropped them off there. They seem like a nice operation. Should be picking them up tomorrow. -Removed shift carrier bushing (thanks to @straight6pwr for the image) -Removed the selector rod joint. This is much more challenging with the transmission in the car and the driveshaft installed. Who could have imagined!?!? -Installed new selector rod joint with pre-installed DSSR. This seemed like a good way to go and I think it was an easier way to hold onto the joint with the limited visibility and access. The compression set of the foam on the old joint vs the new joint: The stock rear carrier bushing shows no cracks or obvious signs of wear but it is so flimsy and has a ton of radial movement by design. The Turner Motorsports bushing is gon b’ gud. I need to drop the trans crossmember 1/2” again to get the rest of the shifter installed (for bitch clip clearance) so I will save that for later. ....plugging away 15 minutes at a time
