    Auto 328i Daily Build Log

    Yeah, if you look through the report the car was very well maintained, and the mileage slowly climbs up after it was rolled back. 100% sure

    Thanks! It's a great daily. The pictures don't show the dents or minor scratches well, but thank you.

    Auto 328i Daily Build Log

    Well, hello again. That 318is I had was very short lived I know, didn't last very long. I've decided to take a break from projects for a while, so I needed a nice, reliable, no worries daily in a platform I really love. So, I got another E36 sedan. And so, here it is. 1996 BMW 328i, auto. 102k miles *on the odometer* (we will get to that in a sec), rust free cali car thats never seen salt. PO acquired it in california a couple months ago. I currently work as a detailer full time so the plan is to keep it clean throughout the winter while its my daily so that it doesn't become a rust bucket haha. Black leather interior with wood trim is a plus. I got it for a good deal and don't see it going anywhere anytime soon. And thus, onto the bad. The odometer says 102k miles, but when I ran the carfax back before I went and got it I noticed that the odometer had been rolled back from 73000 miles to 37000 miles back in 2008. Almost 40k miles of difference, so that's interesting and the $40 I spent on that car fax saved me a couple hundred getting the car. Otherwise, only things I really need to tend to is that it has a slight power steering like, a /horrid/ exhaust leak from somewhere in the midpipe, a burnt out taillight, and new front seats. The current ones are power and the drivers seat does not adjust. Since I am taking a break from cars for a little while, I don't expect much to change in it from now until spring aftermarket wise. Need to get my finances and life in order before I start something else that I can't financially finish.

    like, it starts in a nice amount of time, but i gotta give her the gas and keep it revd above 1k for a few seconds after it starts for it to idle after. otherwise itll die.

    I'm back with another E36

    Well, I went ahead and impulse bought another E36. So, backstory time. Since I bought my ND miata, I had the money still from my black miata I had sold. (I was originally going to use the money as a down payment, but I ended up selling the NA after I bought the ND and couldnt.) I was joking around and called my mom to tell her I was leaving for Milwaukee to buy a car. I wasn't actually planning on doing such a thing, but she was actually okay with getting a car for the winter. At this point, I did find a nice clean 318ti for cheap down by Milwaukee I was kinda interested in. 4 hours later I figured out the guy had sold it, and had 2 options. A 228k mile 318is with supposedly 110k on the motor, or a 200k mile 328i convertible that had been rained in, so the interior was trashed. I didn't sleep, and left at 8:30am for Milwaukee. I get there and the guy worked at a oil change place, so we pulled it in and I got a chance to look under it. Underbody is decent for the mileage, just a few spots with some bubbling so I wasn't crazy worried. Test drove it and it rode fine, so I walked away with it. Made the roughly 4 hour trip home, and now its mine. Plan is, clean it up and fix anything mechanical during the summer so that I can have it running nice for the winter. So far, I need to fix the drivers side door handle, find out why it doesn't start right (When starting, the car smells like gas and you can see some on the ground. Runs great after starting though), throw on a new fender, new fogs, and clean up some of the rust so it doesn't get that much worse during the winter. I didn't have to buy it, but I did anyways and now I'm back on here. No slaps for this one

    Yup! The seatbelt was actually the cause for my broken back and the internal bleeding. Im 6'4" and when we got in the accident I was sitting pretty relaxed which caused me to have a bunch of movement.

    Steelblue E36 Build Thread

    Hey all, just popped in to check in on this thread and kinda wanted to give an update of everything that happened. So my friend and I went to go pick up my new Miata on Monday the 19th, and once we got about 15 minutes away from the car, the lady struck the rear corner of the semi with the side of her SUV and hit us head on. We were in a 2002 Camry doing about 45-50, and she was in a newer Equinox doing about 60. The crash ended up pushing our car back some even. I ended up flying over the airbag and smashing my head on the windshield so I had a super bad concussion. I had internal bleeding from tears in my smaller and larger intestine, and I fractured my L2 lumbar in my spine. I cant feel part of my leg but I still have full strength. I wasnt able to eat or drink for about 10 days when I was in the hospital, and I finally got home last wednesday on the 28th. Im getting a lot better at walking and functioning normally, and I even started driving again yesterday. The lady who hit us has no idea what happened, and she got the worst injuries out of all 3 of us involved. My friend who was driving just has a back brace for 6 weeks, then he is gonna be back to 100% after he gets that off. I have another surgery scheduled on my back next January to get the 6 screws and 2 titanium rods taken out of my spine, but after then I will be back to normal 100%! Thanks for the support! Heres the camry after the accident. You can see where I went over the airbag and hit the windshield. I also did end up with the miata. My dad and brother got the money and bought it when I was in the hospital. I love it so far. EDIT: Glad to see that bumper going to good use ;D

    Did a thing today! Staggered Style 37s, E39 offset wheels. Rekpoint found these on facebook and within 10 minutes of him finding the wheels on facebook I was on my way to Minnesota. Got them for an absolute steal! $320!

    What do you mean by RAW? I'm extremely new to taking pictures of my car in manual mode. I changed some settings just so that it wasn't so insanely bright.

    Decided my valentine needed some good pics taken of her. She dirty but I needed some pictures for my photography class. Unedited, but these are my favorites so far. This is my first time using full manual mode. Anyone have any advice? Camera is a Canon Rebel T1i.
