    E36 328i coupe 'track' project

    So I took the car to my first track day ever on the weekend. We had an absolute blast down at the Taupo Bruce Mclaren Motorsport Park! The car performed exceptionally well considering it is 23 years old and has 278,000 km on it. We drove it down from Auckland, drove hard all day and drove back without a single issue. It would definitely perform better with some better pads, an LSD and if some of the rear bushings were replaced but all in all I'm very impressed. I also managed to get myself 2 Racetech seats to replace the Bride replicas which I had before. I highly recommend spending the extra money for a better seat. The shape is far better, it's more comfortable and most of all it doesn't twist and flew. Overall, not bad for a car that has cost only $8649.50 to date. See some of the photos below from the day:

    Is your M3 non sunroof Dave? If that's the case, your car really is my dream! #shamelesslyinlovewithyourcar

    S50b30/2 owners - quick question!!

    Best to buy one new, they’re old cars now so any spare is likely to be perished.

    It's a rubber tube with a hose clamp attached. Not fun to reattach..

    There's a low mileage 3.2 SMG in techno violet for 30k and an avus blue PFL which has had evo running gear put in it for 18.5k.

    I've got a full set of M3 evo pads if you're interested? I think they're just standard but could be useful.

    As Nathan has said, I'll be doing e46 328i rears to achieve the optimal 68% Front/32% Rear brake bias. By themselves, the 330 front brake upgrade is said to be a bit unbalanced: E36 with E46 330i front and E46 325i/328i rear: 68% / 32% https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?531881-E46-330-Brake-upgrade

    I’m not having any issues, the rotors and pads are just old and don’t feel as effective as they could be. I’ll be doing Goodridge braided brake lines, probably EBC yellow stuff pads and DBA slotted rotors. That’s the idea anyway, the brands might change.

    Coilovers and E46 330i BBK now in! Totally different car handling wise but I will definitely need to do further work on the brakes. I'm also currently running some electric vaders that I got in a trade for the NOS setup. Someone buy them, they're becoming rare and collectible! I'm eyeing up a pair of Racetechs.

    SOLD E36 M3 seats AKA 'vaders'

    Electric 'M-rain' M3 interior including the following: -Front seats -Rear bench -LHS and RHS fold-down sections The rear side bolsters aren't included unfortunately. Please note the drivers seat has a couple of rips as per photos.. Not uncommon for 23 year old seats (minimum!) Looking for a quick sale as I'm trying to get my hands on some Racetechs. I think the price is pretty fair. $750 for BS members

    BMW sure does love to throw a spanner in the works! 😂 BMW- lets create a variation of the 325i with a less powerful 2.5 litre and call it the 323i so that nothing makes sense anymore!

    Nope- As dirtygoogle said, all coupes are an IS but I've personally owned a Calyso red 318is in the same poverty spec and non M-sport.

    Alright thanks for the suggestions, I'll be looking into my options.

    Hold the phone.. I wasn’t aware that Fenix radiators are so bad? I thought they were decent? Any other suggestions? And as far as BC golds go, I’ve never heard anything bad about them. For my purposes, anything better would be excessive.
