    E36 half roll cage...

    Looks nice and weak to me. I'd much prefer to have a classic x-bar

    Passenger side high

    Most e36/46 are like that. The 36 is worse but they were all on the piss even new

    Thoughts on the E87?

    Why not a 123d? They're super neat

    Pretty sure she can't say anything if she doesn't know it exists yeah appears to be a pfl front end

    E38 750il - Cranks, Coughs and starts

    Start with basics ( no doubt you have already), fuel, air, spark, compression and timing Then I'd be looking at cam/crank sensor testing. Or finding someone friendly to scan it for you

    Fiji green 318is

    I'll be watching that auction like a hawk I believe this one was for sale in Palmy at a dealership two or three years back. Fiji green makes me fizz

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    316 hit 190,000km on the way to work Pretty exciting stuff.

    O2 Sensor Readings

    Or the cats have been gutted the correct way to test your cats for being blocked is with a manometer The correct way to check your o2 sensors with with a gas analyser But won't hurt to check for leaks at all or damage to the cats

    O2 Sensor Readings

    What model car? They're both codes for cats, so I would probably check if they have been removed

    2001-2004 X5 - opinions wanted

    Just hit 260km in my diesel. Still no issues. Seems to me like the petrol variants have significantly more cooling system issues, I imagine that it's just the much higher opeating temps

    E36 328 vs Hyundai i30N

    Now I'm convinced that I should have kept my 328

    1996 E36 - EWS II issue

    If you're on a budget and don't have the ability to make a bench test right for the dme you will need the inpa/ncs/dis set up on an old PC. Easiest way is with a serial cable and an ADS interface. Unfortunately lots of reading is needed and relatively limited info as most people are US based with OBD2 ports

    E53d X5 pusher fan question

    I know the v8had the pwm control fan, am unsure on the diesel (can have a look at mine if need be)

    Grey Thunder - 1990 e30 316i

    I think that's why I've had my e36 316 longer than any other e36, I really enjoy the simple cars. Probably also why I drive a Morrie most days
