    Random (BMW) pic of the day

    And another update. Looks like someone was keen on the $100
  2. I left mine to gravity bleed for 30 minutes into a tray. Then finished it off with a 2 person bleed. This was after replacing master, slave, line.

    88 E30 Fuel lines x3

    I believe the mysterious third line is a breather line that runs from the tank, through the line, to a charcoal canister, into the intake.

    WTB E30 Cruise Control

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm also after a kit in case there is an abundance of them.

    I already have enough on my hands... But does it still start with a push? Do you know when the clutch was replaced?

    Reasonably priced E30

    From memory Ray sold his tastefully modified one recently for around 18k (I'm sure someone else has a better memory) which was stroked. That was on there for only a few days.

    Stillborn E30 project remnants

    I take it that those sills are for a coupe (look a bit too long for a sedan)

    Quick Questions

    I'm not sure if it's the correct spot, but I had mine meet in the middle at the rear.

    Quick Questions

    I believe either is possible. My old 318i was a 1990 and had rear disk brakes though. Surely it's not a hard question to ask?

    Quick Questions

    It will depend on if you have a plastic cap or metal cap on your oil filter housing. I'm not 100%, but I think the plastic housing is the larger internal diameter.

    1988 325 manual

    I take it you're wanting to sell complete as opposed to parting?

    Right, so I ended up getting around to comparing these with e30 15in basketweaves. In short they don't fit. E30 waffle in Black. E34 waffle in silver. E30 waffle on E34 rim, larger than the hole E34 waffle on E30 rim, center bore of E34 waffle larger, and won't press in. See differences here: E30 on Left with twist to lock, E34 on Right with just a push in See difference in centre widths here

    The oil level sensor I blanked off as my sump didn't come with one either. Ended up just grounding out the wire with a resistor to stop the oil level light on the check panel.
