  1. My sump was about that low on me E30 320. It got removed and folded under the chassis with the exhaust manifold by a manhole that was sitting too high. 10/10 wouldn't do again.

    1990s european touring car anyone?

    Niiiiice. i think this is what James May took on the Top Gear Africa special.
  5. I'm forever sick of finding a link to an old auction, and being greeted by that stupid 'this listing has expired' message. Last night someone pointed this inconspicuous little upside down caret. I don't remember them mentioning this in any of their 100 f**king emails they send me each week. Which pops this box up And takes you here Helpful working out what things do or don't sell for, as well as what price drops the seller has made.

    E36 BMW + 4 Cylinder engine also = engine oil leaks in my experience, around the damn oil filter case.

    Any idea what E36 option S962 is?

    Intriguing and exciting, Is it plausible it was made in SA for the UK? another option is L812 NATIONAL VERSION GREAT BRITAIN https://www.etkbmw.com/bmw/EN/vin/decoder/ES91857/EN
  8. On the vehicle information for an E36 328is Msport the last line is S962 Engine characteristic curves

    E30 335 - 25K

    TradeMe Interesting for some perhaps, I've always thought an alpina E30 B6 3.5 would be a delightful drive, next best thing at an affordable price. Images for posterity.

    Fair enough, might be worth telling him that if he's in such a hurry to move it, a successful or failed wof will help it's sale potential IMO, clarity of the actual expense of having this car on the road is pretty vital to determine whether the car is good value for money. He might think he doesn't have the time, but that's an hour of his (or someone elses) life. The lack of WoF, passed or failed may be contributing to the 2 months he's been waiting.

    BMW M2 drivers review by yours truely

    As above, you nailed a lot, I want more, the funny stuff was good, but, it was missing something, i can't put my finger on it. Be brutal when you edit, maybe you already have been, but be more brutal, ask yourself, does this raise or lower the overall quality/engagement. My own experience was making a time lapse film, heck, while I'm sitting here being hard on your work I'll link mine so you can go on and CC back if you wish, it seems fair, mines a purely visual journey, but, the point is, i spent about 4 days filming, I filmed about 24 sequences, and I only used about half a dozen. It's not easy, we make cool work that we're proud of and we want to show everyone, but, it's not about what you want to show them, it's about what they want to see, untill you get famous, then you can do what you want. When I look back I'd change a lot about it, this was before Hyperlapses and everyone was doing sh*t like that, but I cut a lot that I liked, and if I made it again, i'd change a lot, credits, title, and I wouldn't have used some of the scenes I did actually used, I'd have sucked it up and chopped it to under 2 mins. You ever seen a directors cut of a movie? like an hour longer, that's what they want, and that's 3 hours of probably 5 hours worth of linear timeline and god knows how many different takes to go through. I think you have great potential, but be more brutal. If i make another video, I'll not be in such a rush to get it on the internet, I already watch it half a dozen or more times the day I finish it and upload, but In future, I think I'll Make it and park it for a week. Watch it again and park it for a week, then watch it again. My attempt at being awesome and famous for making videos :

    BMW M2 drivers review by yours truely

    Not sure if you're seeking CC, if not, stop reading. But I offer it because I like your vibe, your passionate, and you've put a lot of effort into this, it's hard enough making a 2 minute video let alone nearly 10. At the start of the video i couldn't tell if I was more distracted by the top of your head being cut off or having to stare up your nose. The drone use and other cinematography is cool, but in my opinion, cars never look good on grass, the green reflection messes with the cars actual colour, and the texture messes with perception of the curves. and hells teeth, you need to stabilise the camera on you while driving, I get that M and other race derived cars are rough on bumps, but that's hard to watch, a lighter camera will move less than that massive DSLR and 24-70? If you're going to do cool cornering shots in an M car, jesus man, cut the apex right (first cornering shot) or some people will judge (I did). And last but not least, though I appreciate that a 9 minute video takes work, but most people get bored after about 3 minutes if theres no guns, drugs, violence, plane, robots, violence, guns, violence girls, sex, speed or noise. I think perhaps you're adlibbing in the summary in the end? Scrip and cut the pauses at. I think looking at what your talking about is strange, when your not making eye contact with the camera its not as engaging, try keep them under 5 and I think you'll have more people engaged. I get a Jeremy Clarkson Metaphorical type vibe, but he scripts and rehearses and keeps it all short, and is passionate, you seemed a little bored in your summary, and one single camera angle with zero cuts is not engaging, you don't need to go full on bubblepopgumyoutubeceleb cut every 5 words, but, change it up a bit. My $200.02c. Sorry if it makes me seem like a dick, well, I am a dick, but I'm not trying to be here.
