    Cooked Motor Question

    Looks to have lifted the head. Have seen them do similar with detonation but can't see evidence of it in your pics Hope you've got lucky!

    25psi? Have you checked it hasn't dropped the timing belt?

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Mate, m40b16, crap tyres, XYZs.... no wonder it never gets used.

    E46 330d $1 reserve - There is a catch though

    That's a real shame. I'd go look at it if it was closer to here but not worth the trouble otherwise. I do need an m57 in an e36

    My convoluted brake change tale...

    Just had the same drama with our e70. I welded a studay to the lock nut and slide hammered it off, then welded a wheel nut to the spliced section. What a PITA!

    Got me some new monsoons for the 316i for $1. Super excited Will hopefully get time to paint the style 32s this weekend and chuck them on. Then drive slowly everywhere

    KwS's not M3, M3 Project (or, the M328i)

    I have a nice set of the factory 16 Msport wheels without tyres if that helps? Have a few set of wheels up here if you're interested

    BMW Running cost

    I think the only way forward is to buy an e55

    Tow Vehicle

    If it helps we tow a 10m three axle with two to three side by sides with both an e53 and e70, with a combined milage of around 300,000km and have yet to rip a draw bar out or run out of brakes

    2001-2004 X5 - opinions wanted

    I just returned 8.6L/100km over a 300km trip towing a 1275 clubman for a mate in mine. X5 life is good

    Is the 335i the 2019 performance bargain?

    Worth mentioning that you need rod bolts in a JZ to push proper power. Standard piston/rod will manage 500wkw quite well. About the same as an n5x without a rod bolt upgrade

    Is the 335i the 2019 performance bargain?

    I guess it's part of the "culture" of the boy racer community? I won't be surprised to see a move towards the 335 and such in the near future. Plenty of mk5+ golf around that have been treated to a tune to make them slightly less disappointing to drive and a few "hot" ST225 Focus popping up. All of which offer the performance of a clapped out GSR or early WRX from the 90s...

    BBS RK 17x8

    That's very good buying
  21. You can just hook a line up from the nearest caliper, open both nipples and pump away on the brakes Easy. Do it all the time in the paddock

    E36 half roll cage...

    But also plays with the belt angle

    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
