  1. 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.

  3. Hey guys, I've been scouring lots of beemer forums, and found a tiny bit of info and would like someone to confirm (or educate me). I'm building a budget gravel basher, and want to stiffen up the front (my suspension has 260ks and is a touch soft). I don't want to upgrade to coilovers (yet), and i've read that a good way to upgrade the front is to use E36 M3 front shocks with lowering springs (as my compact is 4cyl, therefore lighter in the front). The lowering springs will keep the compact at stock height, and the front will be nice and stiff. There's a set of M3 front shocks, offset mounts, sway bar and links which just popped up on Trademe (http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/bmw/suspension/auction-1316004846.htm), so I'm wondering if anyone knows something about this? Is there a different way of achieving this? My compact is of the m-sport variety, so maybe some new inserts will sort it out? Cheers, Kris
  4. Hi guys I've been skulking on the forums for a while, gathering intel, but haven't posted. I've been wanting to get into gravel rallying for a little while, and since you can buy E36s on a tight budget, it seemed like a good idea. They're popular in europe, so a ton of info is available. Spare parts are easy to come by (as it's sometimes cheaper to buy a broken E36 than it is to find individual parts). I bought an automatic '99 318Ti compact for under $1k, and after sorting small issues to get it a WoF, it's still driving. It's even seen a grass autocross and survived! I also have a frontal damaged 318is manual which is currently being stripped down for parts for the compact. I should probably start a build thread... Here's a pic for you: Cheers, Kris
  5. Hi guys Looking for a E36 Compact / 318ti project car. Doesn't have to have WOF but it does need a live rego (or on hold). Prefer something for under $1k. Located Auckland, but may travel for the right car. Cheers! Kris
