  1. Makes me feel like Christmas morning.
  2. I'm actually trying to find a decent turbo diesel truck myself the difference is I'll have a running BMW to take to events.

    I am late to this thread but how amazingly clean is that car? I got my e34 540 from Texas and I can't believe how clean it is. That state mummifies cars. I'd buy every car I ever own from that state if I could.
  4. Amen to that! Once you go V8, you never go back. #V8Mafia
  5. I'll be getting them within the next month FCP Euro has them on sale for $200 off as well.
  6. It's essentially bolt on for the swap with very minor modifications. Hopefully I have the time to do it either this summer or when I'm a nuclear power school next year. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  7. No price in this case probably means if you have to ask you can't afford it. That's what I said! He's pretty much selling a Ferrari on Craigslist. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  8. What is a good coil over brand to go with? I've found the BR Series for $1k and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with those.
  9. I've fallen off the map here on WIBimmers so I figured this is a good way to get back into it. I picked this car up this summer west of Dallas, Texas. The green 540 was riddled with rust beyond repair and had to go. I picked up this car with 128,000 miles and drove her back home. It was kinda a barn find, two guys who own a BMW shop got it from someone and proceeded to do no maintenance on it. I decided to try and do this car some good right off the bat. I dropped the money on an 18-piece Lamforder control arm kit, engine mounts, and polyurethane subframe bushings. Doing the work on this car was an experience I've never had before. I would pay you if you found rust on this car. I was rubbing the dirty off the brake lines to find unoxidized metal (see picture below). Some other things I got done were getting my 2-piece, 18in style 5s redone. They were sandblasted down and are now powder coated, the barrels are imitation chrome, the faces are gray, and the bolts are zinc coated. I also let Marc screw around with the exhaust and this video resulted... https://youtu.be/16bq2TZDAZE I have some maintenance I want to get done but I am still a college student so it's getting done slowly. I will be commissioning into the navy in May so I should have the money to get some more done. I am thinking about buying another car so I can be dedicated to working on this car but it's very hard to justify having two cars being a 22-year-old in the navy. I also need to find a friend to be able to do my own work down here. Some upgrades I would like to have done very soon are: New exhaust fabbed up, goal is to sound like this https://youtu.be/gT3G2O6pViA Coilovers, still shopping around M60B44 Frankenstein build (M62 block with M60 head) General restoration
