    E30 engine swap options, M20, M30, M50

    Haha I wish! That would be a very nice setup if done well. I've seen a few examples from overseas and man do they go

    E30 engine swap options, M20, M30, M50

    Haha I was looking at that the other day, just busy doing my homework on what the swap entails before i get to putting money on the table. Theres also the other issue of getting parts to Christchurch of course, but that can be sorted

    E30 engine swap options, M20, M30, M50

    Cheers for the advice gentlemen, for the simplicity I'd ideally like to go for the bigger M20 but theyre not the easiest to find in alright condition and people seem to hold onto them. At the same time a later M5x engine would be good for the improved technology and potential later down the track. Any idea what you would want for such a kit and clutch? Is it the Getrag260 or the 240?
  5. Hey all, Ive run into some engine trouble with my e30 and it doesnt seem worth fixing for the price Ive been quoted. So instead Im looking at potentially doing an engine swap while in this situation (was my intention from the beginning). Im either looking at an m50, m30 or potentially an M20B25 (currently has the 2.0l, and its an auto) if I can find one. If anyone has anything along those lines theyre looking to potentially sell or even if someone has a 2.0l M20 thats in not too bad shape I'd love to hear from you Cheers Mo

    WTB: FL E30 320i radiator

    Looking for a radiator to fit a 1991 320i auto in good condition in the Christchurch area or potential advice on where a new aftermarket or good secondhand one can be had. Mine sprung a leak at the small return outlet (read: it was snapped off and fixed before I owned the car but the fix has failed) Cheers

    E30 odometer not working

    Thanks for the replies, I'll put some plastic grease on them and see if it makes a difference. Any idea where I can buy plastic grease from? Also yes its definitely a motometer unit as its soldered into the main board and has the original bmw parts number sticker stating its a motometer unit stuck on the speedo unit as well as all over the rest of the dash. I got the motometer non-us gearset from garagistic as mine isnt in miles or mpg, I checked the old and new gears back to back to make sure they were the same (probably should have counted teeth as well) but they all matched from what I could see. I'll check this all again today but if I cant find the issue, does anyone sell good working odo/speedo units by themselves? Thanks

    E30 odometer not working

    Hey all, sorry if someone has asked this before, I did have a search but came up with only the usual gear fix. Pretty much the odometer on my e30 decided it had enough, I got some gears off garagistic to fit my motometer cluster and put them in but afterward it would only count over a few kms and then stop for a while and then count over some more later. Its fully stopped working now though. Everyting else works fine though I've taken the cluster out a few times since to check the gears but they're fine. I was hoping someone might have some ideas as to what could be causing this Cheers

    M20 manual conversion parts

    That would have been ideal, my parents live up there, could still potentially be interested if i go up there at some point, thanks man
  10. Looking for the parts to convert a 1991 e30 320i from auto to manual or even if anyone knows of someone that does manual conversions in e30s Im in the Christchurch area Cheers

    e30 shell/chassis

    cheers man i'll contact him and find out

    e30 shell/chassis

    hey all, i had a bit of a prang the other day and have damaged my old girl quite badly. Im looking for a later model e30 chassis if possible but would consider a pre-facelift model too if it was in decentish condition. My main thing is i would hope it is in not too bad state and hopefully not be fully dead on the registration side of things. 2 door or 4 door sedans welcome. The shell is the main concern as my car still has everything else in working condition. Anyone think they might have what im looking for give us a shout. Cheers Mo

    Glad i could help! nope i still use standard 91, although as i said myne is more to improve fuel economy and just give it a bit of oomph, but yeah heaps of different ones out there

    hey Toby, i did have a look on ebay for cheap ones but in the end i didnt find many that were specially for the 320i so bought one off of a guy from another BMW forum site E30zone.net that sells performance chips for both the 320 and 325s, the guys username is SPEEDTOUCH. Think i paid 30pounds or something like that, plus postage from the UK but i found it to be a decent and worthwhile mod. But have a look around might be able to find something cheaper for yours, dont expect massive changes but can expect something you can feel atleast, like with myne i could actually feel my throttle response and mid range torque improve a bit. But yeah have a look around and see what you can get
