    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Had this el-cheapo Brace turn up ~9 weeks after ordering on eBay today too, appears to fit too!

    I used a similar expanding foam product to fix my ACS front lip on the E36 after I drove over it. Worked a treat! Put 90% of the front end back together over the weekend, replaced smashed/cracked fog lights in the process. New 635i radiator for the E30 arrived today! Fitted and warmed up the engine before finding various leaks from sensors etc...worst being from the thermostat housing so rad will have to come back out again to get the housing off and resealed

    Exhaust Advice - M30b35 E30

    Looking for some advice, going to build my own exhaust to keep funds open for other repairs/upgrades on the E30. Dont want an obnoxiously loud setup and have the following available to use: 3.2 E36 M3 Muffler E36 328i complete exhaust from headers to muffler (probably won’t need) Will buy piping/bends as required. Idea at present: as the M3 muffler has dual inlet 2.25” pipes I’m leaning towards 2 y sections, 1 after the headers and 1 pre-muffler. With 2.5” center section to keep it simple and reduce weight. I don’t see any real benefit to a dual exhaust? Yea?

    Dropped the old diff out of my E30 last night, took a while to figure out the ratio stamped (40:11)was the same as the LSD (3.64) I have waiting to go in! Seriously considering buying diff studs before I reinstall incase I ever have to remove again - so difficult compared to an E36/39!! Raided Zebra today and picked up a mint FL nose/grill panel & bootlid from an E36 coupe and a Barina steering linkage for the E30.

    New centres for 3-piece rims

    Arrow wheels also custom make wheels centers. Otherwise import some?
  7. Yeah I have a b20 drivehsaft as my b25 shaft was too short.
  8. What gearbox you using? Couple or factory options work rather than custom length depending. Also, I need an exhaust made up for my M30 swap, we should ask for a package deal haha

    Cleared all the stored goods from the back and installed my rear seats in the E30! First time seats have been in there for year! Fresh oil fill and mounted radiator in front of the M30 (barely clears) New trans cross member and gbox mounts bolted up. Realised my newly acquired g240 shifter linkage is the same length as my old g260 gear? Need to shorten ASAP so I can bolt up driveshaft!

    Feel free to drop by for some open header goodness E36 being showered with gifts; this arrived today, not as bad as expected being a FG rep.

    Swapped a 4th engine harness into my M30 (E30) and got the engine to fire up and die a couple times! Such a relief, now need to figure out why it won’t idle.
