    Nailing it in reverse would make the news

    the other problem with this shit is that it looks bad




    like i get its an old neglected car and all that but i at least want some sort of basics appearence on my driveway right

    these wheels need to match. obviously someone has been doing burnouts considering the stockies on the back. also the 7 series wheels up front look dumb. 18's are too big. wish it came on the M3 wheels but whatever and ever, amen

    simple fix, i have lots of wheels.

    ok, i want to put the E36 back on E36 wheels, then i can remove the 46 wheels... and i'll put the E46 wheels on the coupe. woop.



    muuuuuch better

    now for the

    hrmm.

    16's don't fit



    i should've thought of that

    rear wheels still have loads of tread. nobody has been doing burnouts, its just obviously the donor wheels for whatever happened to the originals didn't fit on the front...

    oh well. dig out a set of 17's

    get the first one on, cool

    go out back, jack the back of the car up to do two at once

    ...

    ...

    ...

    smash.





    crap. good thing the front bar already fell off

    if it was 1995 i'd be so angry

    anyway now my cars are stuck together

    this is my story

    oh also, fun times



    the rear springs are made of wood for some reason

    unsure if factory

    i didn't know all facelift cars got them and i've pulled more than my share of sedans apart to assume it was just another worthless silver rack
    I had a z4 purple tag rack put in the e30, and it's night and day. Drives like a near new car.

    M3’s are for peasants. Auto 318i’s are for the super rich to waft along on in between the casino and their super yachts.

    you know

    i could write an update here

    i could talk about the taste iron block inline 6 that i just got

    maybe the ZF gearbox

    perhaps even show the 280km/h speedo, distinctive interior or even the distinctive mirrors...



    maybe even chat about the other black coupe

    the one that is now manual



    (well, once HEL send me a damn clutch line)

    this is performance forums

    another day has dawned

    and then the sun has set



    and on this fine day

    a car was delivered

    an extremely fast

    extremely rare

    extremely saught after

    ...

    alpine white 318i optioned with the fantastic automatic





    boy howdy

    removed 10 tons of leaves from the cowl



    bonnet struts were gone. pinched the good ones from the blue racing compact



    it verks!



    so plans are a stock restoration. i have sourced the correct wheels and i have sourced the correct head unit

    it needs a clean, inside and out, and then it needs the carpet swapped out from the compact

    then we will have a car

    a 1997 E36 318i auto.

    stock as a rock.

    just as nature intended.

    who cares about M3's anyway

    This is Canberra, we can't all get around in singlets and boardies all year round.

    Ol' mate's positioning of the cradle reminds me of a semi related CSH, had to pickup a current 3 series that bricked itself from a place in Nicholls a few months ago. The owner laid carpet squares under the edge of my tray so it wouldn't scratch his driveway.
