    1989 E30 325i Progress

    Had an opportunity to get a lower mileage m20b25 for a good deal and they delivered it. Plans are to disassemble it and then rebuild it over the summer and maybe put it in next winter. I figured with the age of these cars having a spare drivetrain is a good idea. Also working on cleaning up the spare g260.

    Some good stuff last night. Got the hole in the driver rear wheel well patched up and coated with undercoating. And put a hitch on the wagon.

    Fuck yeah. And working on sound deadening in the trunk and putting carpet back in it.

    I've always said, the shinier the vulva the better.

    Picked up a lower mileage G260 to put in it and then will have a spare. Also got trunk carpets and sound deadening to get the trunk back together. Have some stuff off to Zach for powder coating. RHD flywheel should be here soon. Then I can start putting stuff back together . And enjoyed some of the warm weather to wash the car. Loving the new daily.

    Merry Christmas everyone. Anyone ever make some type of table to set the engine on rather than a stand? Would be nice to work on the block without it being on the hoist to do things like the RMS. No e30, but the new wagon looks right at home in the snow.
  7. They're out of the car and ready to go.

    Lol. The e30 has 3 pedals. There's something pleasant about a comfy auto on a daily commute.

    Engine coming back out. Confirmed the RMS And asleep for the winter. Hoping the CPS being weirdly offset like this is contributing to my cutout issue when driving. And, a couple of the new daily. I'm really liking it. Totally different than the 325i wagon, but I like being back in a Volvo and the swedish styling is great. I had a 2010 S80 for a little while and it is one of my more favorite interiors.

    Thank you for the compliments and your contributions of ridding the world of its nature.

    2005 325iT - 135k Miles - Great DD

    Picked up the new daily! The e46 is still for sale!
  13. 2005 325iT. 134k miles. Car is a base model (manual seats, rear wheel drive). Starts, runs, and drives great. No CEL or other lights. No rattles or clunks. Some minor oil residue on the driver side of the engine, however, the car leaves zero puddles or drips. I was told it most likely the oil filter housing gasket. Vehicle routinely gets 30mpg on the highway. Only reason I am selling is because it is not as wide as I thought it was with two car seats in the backseat and it makes it difficult if someone has to sit back there with the kids. Asking $4,000. Clean title in hand. More pictures will be posted. Work that has been completed in the last 5k miles: • New control arms • New sway bar links • New front pads and rotors • New windshield washer pump • New heater control valve • New fuel filter • New tires (put on 12/3/18) • New rear passenger window regulator • New windshield cowl • Passenger side seat airbag sensor emulator (to bypass seat sensor) • Have new serpentine belt and AC belt, just not installed. • New air filter What it could use: • Common e46 fuel gauge issues. It doesn't always read accurately right after filling it up, however, after a few starts the gauge reads as it should until you fill up again. • Could use a driveshaft center support bearing in the near future. Every once in a while you get the "rumble strip" feel, another common e46 issue. • I would do rear pads rotors at some point in the near future. • New key fob (or replace battery in the current one). I am going to try to get to the dealer to order a new one. • Tires should be balanced by an actual tire shop. After getting new tires there's a slight vibration at 60-65 in the steering wheel, but it's not bad, just a thing I noticed that others probably won't.
