  1. is this real life? https://janesville.craigslist.org/cto/d/1997-bmw-318i/6679120069.html Pretty sure this is an M sport, which I think are pretty rare https://grandrapids.craigslist.org/cto/d/1997-bmw-318ti/6692222276.html https://wausau.craigslist.org/cto/d/87-bmw/6698847354.html

    A 1997 e36 M3 that I shouldn't have bought :/

    I have an ECU from @ChrisO's 97 M3 if you deduce the problem might be from that.
  3. That burger looks like it came out of a vending machine
  4. Sick color. I really want one of these now and that seems like a good price given the mileage. Might see what I can get for bites on the F30
  5. https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/cto/d/1985-bmw-m635csi-euro-m6/6694307252.html Seems like pretty good deal? Looks pretty clean https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/cto/d/bmw-325e-1986-auto-coupe-e30/6693426385.html

    1998 M3 convertible and M roadster dealership poster

    I'm interested to know what else is going on in these pictures. Looks like OEM replacement fenders and rear sheet metal for an E30? Also, the other poster on the table? Do you work at a dealer ship and they were cleaning out a bunch of old advertising?

    Whats the thread pitch? Pretty sure I have a full set from my E46 in my tool box.
  8. 100K mile E46 conv M3 for less than 10k? https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/cto/d/2004-bmw-m3-convertable-6/6699287464.html I love this color https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/cto/d/2003-bmw-325i/6673521175.html

    Back from the dead or something.

    I've definitely come around to these the more I have seen them. They seem like they would be fun with the M42.

    Was brutally hot at the game today. Was there for 15 mins of game time and left.

    So after doing some more reading and taking your suggestions into consideration, I will keep the CCV and just order new hoses for it. Is there any issue with the hose that drains into the dipstick now that the oil pan is in the front as opposed to the back? Or should routing the house really not be that big of an issue? I'm having a hard time imagining what the distance between stock S52 oil pan location and M50 oil pan location would be. Hose #6 in the below diagram. Which is this part 11151740393
  14. Do you have to be a member to go to this? I would like to come simply to spectate and put some faces to names. Also because I will be in Madison during the vintage event this weekend and will need to say my farewells to the track until next year.

    Definitely will be doing this from now on. And I will have to look into that. My current question/issue involves the throttle body. Deleting coolant lines to the TB. Where do I need to block this off on the motor so that I don't have coolant pouring out somewhere? Is it the one of the openings on the head? Is this where I would run the E30 brown top coolant sensor? Car will not be run in cold enough temperatures for this to be useful and I want to delete/clean up as much unnecessary stuff as possible. edit** Looks like bypassing it is the way to do it? Taken from this thread CCV delete. I removed the diaphragm/cone circle thing(pictured below). Which leaves this hole in the bottom of the manifold(circled in red). I've watched this video which essentially shows plugging where this used to go in the manifold. Can I do this? Is there a "proper" way to do this? Are yellow and blue lines in this related to CCV? Can I run one of those small air filters on the crank case opening at the front of the motor? Or simply just run a hose to somewhere on the block where it will vent to the atmosphere? I was talking some of this over with @GunMetalGrey but he is not as familiar with OBD2 manifolds.
