    Can't turn off traction control

    Hey guys, My 1992 E36 325i doesn't appear to have an asc button or anything to let me turn off the traction control. BUT, there is a traction control warning light on my dash which teases me because I can't get it to turn on. Does anybody know how to disable traction control even though theres no button? Or is this not possible?

Sitting with BC coilovers brand new, months old (with BMW reinforcement plates on all 4 towers) no cert currently.

    1992 E36 325i Coupe

    Hey guys I'm looking at selling or possibly swapping my E36. She's done 300ks due to Grand touring around the country and has never let me down. Currently wearing Nankang shoes with semi slick tread 225/45/17. Grips well and corners like it's on rails. Chipped ECU inside summoning the forbidden horsepower out of it haha I have always used 95 or above petrol. Never think about 91 haha and has had 328i injectors placed in her. Gas bonnet struts have been replaced recently due to the oem ones bugging out and developing an erectile disfunction lol. It has had the toolkit molested but it will come with my personal little set of tools as it is handy. First aid kit, spare wheel, bottle of anti freeze, oil, crc is all included too. Seats are in good condition with no rips to my knowledge and minimal fading. Fully adjustable. Aftermarket exhaust, generally quiet but really opens up past 2.5-3k rpms Automatic transmission with the whole sport,snow and eco modes Sunroof as well. Works when it wants to but it's there and most commonly goes. Only plays up like once a couple of weeks as if shes on her monthly Sad to let her go as she was my first car but all things come and go. 02108665314 for more details and viewing info Open to all offers Cheers
  7. Hey guys, I have a 328i with a blown motor, and sourced a very low km m50b25 non vanos engine, will the x20 from the m50b25nv engine have the same pin out as the later model x20? and if so is it a matter of installing the new motor and plug and play. or will EWS play up?

    Budget E36 Compact gravel car

    I'm attempting to build a E36 compact into a budget gravel rally car. I had an AW11 Mr2 'sort-of' track-car previously, but it was hardly used due to track day costs and I thought it was time to move on to something a bit different. I've never rallied before, I've always wanted to, I just didn't think i have the balls to. Time to find out! The plan is to start by doing grasskhanas and autocrosses, and once I get a cage in start doing gravel sprints. Car will mostly be stock (at the start at least) to get the hang of things and grow confidence in a slow car. Picked up an automatic 1999 318Ti for under $1k, and all it needed for a WoF was some tyres, a few bulbs, and to clear the ABS light. About a week after I got it, it was already time to try it out on grass, by doing the HCMC grasskhana in Massey. The ABS light came back on just before the event (looks like pump motor/electronics), so conveniently the ASC and ABS were disabled during the event. Even though it was still auto with a single spinner, I had a blast throwing it around the dirt. Looks like the project is a go.
  9. So, after a long time of thinking, I've come to the decision of saving up for a JDM till the end of this year, but a part of me still wants to get a BMW. I've been scouring Trade Me and the Facebook Marketplace for cars, and I came across a 1998 318ti E36 that's selling for $1200 in the same city as me, and has been driving it from Hamilton to Tauranga for a bit. It has 206xxx km's and according to the seller, the only problems are that it has a "rough idle" and that the power steering will need to be sorted out in the near future. I also asked the guy and this E36 has an M42. He's selling it because he doesn't want an extra car lying around, as much as he was planning to keep it. Do you think it would be worthwhile buying a good cheap E36 with a small engine as a first car? Also, how much would it cost to fix the power steering of Another plus is the fact that a bunch of BMW enthusiasts live 2 blocks away, and we have family friends that can work with cars, one owns an auto shop. Any advice on this?

    EWS emulator coding

    I am trying to get an M44 transplant running using an EWS emulator on the original M44 DME. Unfortunately the original EWS module and keys that were paired with the DME are in a donor car that is long gone, which is why i need an emulator. INPA can read the ISN off the the DME without problems and all communications using INPA work perfectly so there is not likely to be any problem with my cables etc. However, when I switch to the emulator software to try and write the ISN to the EWS emulator chip I cannot communicate with it. Everything seems to operate fine, it tries for a while, then returns a message "No echo from k-line". Has anyone successfully done this and got any ideas? The basic approach I am taking is described in the link below, although I got the identical looking emulator chips from Aliexpress... https://www.ecutool.com/bmw-ews2-ews32-emulator_7875.html

    Euro Plates

    My new E36 just has standard New Zealand plates on it but I'm wanting to get some euro plates for it. I was wondering if anyone could help me get an idea of the best place to get it done. I don't want to change the numbers/letters on the number plate, I just want the Euro plate with the same text.
  13. Hey everyone, This is for a 1998 328i E36 cabriolet. My front passenger seat doesn't stay forward. Which makes it hard for people to get into the back seat (it's a 2 door cab). I can hold it forward, but that's getting to be annoying Some initial googling tells me it might be the strut inside the seat that's worn out. This makes sense because the driver's seat fair launches itself forward but the passenger one just sits there sedately. However, before I go removing the seat, figuring out where the strut is, and trying to order one, I thought some people here with more knowledge than me might have some other options. Also, if anyone knows how to replace a seat strut, that would be great. I've never disassembled a seat before! Tim

  15. Hi guys! New to the forum. This is my Arctic Silver E36 328i sedan. It has 145,000kms on clock, sunroof, heated front seats, and came with an mp3 stereo and a very clean interior. I have fitted Mtech clear indicators, tail lights, smoked side repeaters, Super Low springs, and have maxed out the camber in the back, along with -2.0 degrees camber in the front. Bit of surface rust on the rear fenders, but if I do keep this I may spray it with the airbrush sometime, since this thing cost me less than $1500 haha. It needs some TLC to the body (new bonnet maybe), but overall it's a great runner. Already have a Getrag 220 and single mass flywheel sitting in the shed for it!
  16. Hi, Before I grab one I've seen in the UK. Just checking if anyone on BS had a six cyl shifter linkage for sale? Cheers

    NZ New 1996 BMW 328i SE Motorsport

    $9,000 Obo Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am having to sell something I was going to keep for ever.. Its a New Zealand new, 1996 BMW 328I SE Motorsport Factory Manual in DaytonaViolett Metallic with Black leather interior originally sold by Shelly BMW. I have just replaced the following in the past couple of weeks: - Brand new genuine BMW water pump - Brand new genuine BMW thermostat - Brand new Battery as of today The kilometers read at low 147,000kms and the condition reflects this, all the common door card failures etc are not found in the interior of this vehicle and the leather is near perfect. It has 4 basically brand new tyres all round, the engine, gearbox and clutch make it drive smoother than a gravy sandwich. It will come with spare Fog lights, Clear indicators, bulbs and BMW car care kits. As you would expect its not entirely perfect and has the following minor imperfections: - Hood lining down quoted approx $100 from local upholster) - Fuel sender line needs to be re soldered so it doesn't read empty - Two or three very minor areas of clear coat peel If more photos or details are needed don't hesitate to pm me, price is somewhat negotiable but getting harder to find such clean examples in these specs.

    WTB: E36 M42B18 Engine Package

    Hey all, Wanting to purchase an E36 M42B18 Engine Package, preferably with all electrics and ancillaries, I could also be interested in an M44B19 engine package also but would prefer a complete M42B18. Ideally wanting to spend no more than $450 on a low mileage engine (with proof) although I'm not overly concerned on mileage. I'm not interested in any engines with a blown head gasket, previous overheating or other associated issues. Located in Napier, Hawkes Bay. Happy to pay for shipping although anywhere within 3 hour travel would be highly convenient. Contact number: 0212034089, I'm not overly active on the forums. Thanks Richard

    Super Low Springs

    I'm looking to buy some front Super Low Springs for my E36. It already has super lows in it but it's on 4 cylinder Springs at the front and my car has a 6 cylinder. If anyone knows where I can get some or if anyone has some please let me know, thanks
  22. From what I have researched, use the S50 ECU and loom, bypass EWS from the original engine and I'm good to go? If the M3 the engine came from didn't have automatic aircon should I convert to the manual version/ Delete completely? Cheers, Connor

    325is Coupe 1994

    Build Date March 1994.Chassis JB02939 Reg No SS1338 Supplied by TMBMW July 1994.Full service history. At a cost of more than $110000 on the road there were not many of these AC Schnitzer S3 silhouette coupes bought into NZ. With the M50 2.5 engine producing 190 HP,a top speed of 150MPH and 0-60 in 6.5 seconds (AutoCar magazine Aug 1994) this car was no couch potato, these are respectable figures even today. One owner till June 2013 and on the mainland since, it has travelled 96000 kilometres. Always garaged, driven in the dry only,and in perfect original condition. $13000 For more detail PM or call 029 777 4006 Thanks for reading Update 05 October 2017 Car sold in Feb 2016 to third owner in Tauranga. And in July this year 2017 we bought the car back. It has a recent service with Coombes Johnson in Tauranga, and a complete four corner suspension refresh (Bilsteins), new bushes and sway bars, and new brake rotors too. So now it is really is a show car, and go car! The car is still in Tauranga, and if we don't sell it or deal it on something else I'll bring it back to the South Island, although at the moment there is no room in the garage!

  25. Am tossing up the idea of a 3.0 or even a 2.8 assembly in my E36, the b25 feels dull. What kind of $ am I looking at now days for the crank/rod/pistons?
