Back in the day I owned' and sometimes raced' a 2002Tii. I got a lot of enjoyment out of maintaining and rebuilding the engine some 25 years ago.
In late 2017 I brought a E30 320iA which had been converted to 2.5 manual out of E34. Otherwise it was pretty stock on bottlecaps although did have Bilstein sport shocks/springs front and rear. My objective has been to build a ‘little brother’ B3 for the B5 and make it handle like an M3.
The mods I have made since have been extensive and I will produce a project log one of these days...
Another goal is to own an M3 and/or get into Motorsport. Achieved. Have had a lot of enjoyment working on this and giving it tlc. Check out for this project.
(SOLD August 2020) Went out to buy a E60 M5 and came home with a Alpina E60 B5. The B5 is fantastic with so much power and torque yet flexible, understated and handles well.
