  1. Is it posted to FB marketplace? If so, that would explain the headache. It is legitimately what seems to be the worst people possible.

    E46 Things

    This is news to me. I must determine what ones provide such food.

    Lifted E30 V2

    I'm (allowing my engine to breath air that is) cool finally! Surprisingly very little contact with anything, and the 135° coupler on the intake ended up being the saving grace of this whole attempt. Grilles fit back on, so now when I come off the highway the engine wont be completely heat soaked! Wahoo!

    Jake's Epic BMW 135i Build Thread! (5+ Years of Ownership)

    I vote to change "epic" in your thread title to "epoch" This literary pun is far less amusing when typing it, but it's Friday and that's just where I'm at.

    An E36 Investigation

    Life lesson, don't investigate things. This car now resides in Indiana.

    E30...M30 rocket bunny on LSD

    That car has had an... interesting past. Hopefully you get it up and running, with the motor of your choosing!

    A clunk like your describing has typically been worn U-joints in the driveshaft (for me). Easy to check if it's in the air.

    I wasn't entirely sure where to price it, but we all know the WiBimmers price has more flex than your average joe. The frame is indeed in very good shape, only the seams have any tell of Wisconsin use. Really no surface rust on anything underneath. It's handy. No rubbing anywhere!

    Part of the box. The dent could be pushed out a lot better than it is, but I never got around to messing with it more than what is shown.

    That's $4,00 to you good sir! Which if we were following the metric way of life, would be $4! Fixed that though, thanks.

    211k Miles - No large rust (Georgia truck) with a very clean frame, lil bit of surface rust here and there. Back corner had a trailer pushed into it right before I bought it. Crew Cab with 5.5' bed, with liner, 7,500lb towing capacity. I personally have dragged around 5,500lbs of trailer and it does it very smoothly. 2x4 (Georgia things!) and honestly with 300lbs of sand in the bed it felt like driving a car on half tread snow tires. Quite a lot of fun to throw it sideways and just zip around in 12" of snow. It is on some aftermarket wheels with good tread tires (Big O brand?) but could negotiate further for a stock set of wheels with BFG KO2's that I put on less than 6 months ago (1k in tires) Recent maintenance: All brakes and rotors, Bilstien 5100 front shocks, KYB Gas A Just rears, front wheel bearing, lower ball joints, starter, plugs, MAF, serpentine belt, all belt idlers, new AC condenser, coolant flush, trans fluid. Basically I took care of any potential issues of it running for another 100k miles! Superchips flashpack tuner, in winter with the tonneau cover and the MPG tune I would do about 20mpg highway. It averages better mileage than most newer trucks of people I know. Does not burn or leak any fluids. This has taken me out to Colorado and all over the UP without skipping a beat and had I not come across the long wheelbase one I would be driving this one for many moons yet. WiBimmers price of $3,600

    Diaries of a Daily Driver

    That's an impressive amount of fuel! Being able to fill up when gas is lower cost is quite handy! I have not sold the old truck yet, though it is up for sale. It wasn't my intention, but I would agree that it's a good way to go! Haven't done any towing with the new one (same engine as the other though) I didn't do any long distance towing with the other one so I'm not entirely sure what it did. Better than a new Tacoma though, that much I do know! WiBimmers discount does exist on my existing Titan, crew cab. I should just make a quick ad on the for sale section here.

    Diaries of a Daily Driver

    Since this is already a truck thread... I've been keeping an eye out for one of these for a fair bit now, they do not pop up often, and when they do it comes at a premium. Introducing the new rig. 08 Titan Pro-4x Long Wheelbase! Featuring an E36 that I need to sell, and a Nic with a broken hand. But why? 4 years newer, 50k less miles, 4x4 with locking diff, 7' 3" bed, 10k lb towing capacity. It also comes with a 37 gallon fuel tank that drains you bank account every time you need to fill it! This thing is by far the largest vehicle I've ever driven. It comes in just shy of 20.5 feet long tip to tail, and the roof stands about 7 feet tall. It has been lifted 6", and I will likely rework the wheels / tires with something that fits the lift better. The extra room will be great for bike trips, as I've had to use hitch racks already on the other truck to have enough room for bikes, people, gear, and coolers. Now to wait for the next eBay sale to get some wheels and tires...
