    E36 '96+ M3 suspension components (E30 5 lug swap)

    I'd say hit up your certified and ask. Or you could email lvvta directly, which I have done in the past also.

    Fun Cars for Under 5k

    I'd suggest a Mazda 323 like this https://www.trademe.co.nz/1906062000 Nice and zippy in a 2l manual. Plenty enough fun to drive around, and still practical. Doesn't quite meet the cool criteria. But that one I've linked is yellow, which adds some points for being different.

    E30 Air Conditioning System

    Is this out of a pre or face-lift? Was it working prior to removal? What conditions are the lines in?

    Random (BMW) pic of the day

    And another update. Looks like someone was keen on the $100
  5. 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.

    FS: e36 318iS 5MT - needs love

    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?
