    Re-engaging in the community!

    use the bearing opening in the trailing arm (or the existing bearing if its still in place) to figure this out. the 1.8 has a smaller bearing. z3 2.5 6cyl - Angular ball bearing 42mm x 75mm x 37mm z3 1.8 4cyl / 318ti - Angular ball bearing 39mm x 72mm x 37mm (inside diameter x outside diameter x depth)
  3. 1.e46. and never anything over 6 cylinders. 2.no. its easier! you can still buy the great old cars, and the internet knowledge-base is a godsend. 3.can we trust/believe anything VW has to say anymore? i think the at some point we will realize the net gain on the environment for electronic cars is slim to none and IC will live on. 4.i find live updates for Teslas f*in terrifying. "cold dead hands" applies for me. 5.cars arent expensive. our expectation of what 'stuff' we deserve in life is too high.

    E30 Tail Lights

    humbug, vinyl can work fine. i wrapped the corners of mine (which are the most difficult portion) with red clear vinyl and have none of these bubbles you speak of. https://www.wibimmers.com/board/index.php?/topic/4560-hello-my-name-is-dan-and-today-it-rained/&do=findComment&comment=73984

    yeah, McCarthy has been a terrible game manager for a long time. Rodgers and the team were good enough to (sort of) cover up the terrible play calling. i have to say though, I was pleasantly surprised when McCarthy went for it on the 4th down near the endzone in the 2nd quarter. Normally he would have pussed out and kicked the field goal.

    i've bled a few clutch slaves and/or clutch masters in my day. ive never bench bled anything, and I've never had a problem. you will need a helper though, and your process is correct. i did have one that seemed a bit soft after initial bleeding, so i used the gravity bleed method - i.e., top off the reservoir, crack the bleeder open and walk away, periodically checking it. the 2nd bleed attempt worked fine then.

    Secret Santa 2018!

    will turner? cool gift!
  11. Theres a few more upgrades to consider like M3 front seats, properly done flares, x3 drivetrain, etc but I agree. I think a similar s54 swapped touring went up for sale for 12-15k not long ago

    E34 Front Driver Door

    brilliant 1990 in Shorewood, IL. cannot tell condition of the drivers door, though, from the pictures. https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/pts/d/bmw-ei-part-out/6757768400.html
  13. holy shit balls mother of god. IMHO, this is the pinnacle of a daily driver. love that he stuck an s54 on an iX drivetrain https://denver.craigslist.org/ctd/d/2001-bmw-e46-m3-s54-swapped/6758146934.html
