    Default A Build Better than the Last: e21

    So as most of you know, I sold my beloved e28, for a few reasons. I had finally got it to a state that was very nice to look at, and long story short: I got bored. I couldve done much more to it, however it would require lots of money, which a college kid doesnt like to spend. (Suspension overhaul, motor, paint ect.) So I sold it.
    It was a pretty car. I knew I wanted an e21, and thought I would get my uncles old early model 320i since it has been rotting away ever since he died. That didnt work out (family issues). So I was on the CL prowl and found a clean looking 320i at a portland dealership. The dealer turned out to be an idiot, bought it anyways. 160k, perfect interior, needs paint.
    I had hoarded e21 euro parts before I even bought a car...

    I bought 316 single rounds and non ac console from Adam (twelvizm), Hes an awesome guy with a rad e21 and has infinite man knowledge. Hes helped a lot already.
    Heres the car:
    The first thing I did was take the massive DB off.
    And put single rounds in, This was the result

    Looked nice...

    Stupid F-ing Photo-ineverwannawork-Bucket crashed story time over till I restart.

    That e28 was looking nice, what wheels were those?

    The e21 looks so happy and non threatening with those lights
    I think its kind of stupid how every more modern car is "aggressively" styled

    BMW with 4 headlights is classic. With 2 - I'm not sure if I will like it..
    Though I like the color and, thanks God, no tint on the windows!

    I seen your e28 listed and was tempted to offer my e39 for trade quite a few times lol. Glad to see you finally were able to offload it and pick up an e21. I seen the e21 also posted on CL. Agreed that Adam is a cool dude. Cant wait to see your progress with this man!

    Thanks for all the kind comments guys!
    Well some ditzlefritz backed into me.

    Annoying because nothing wouldve happened if the US bumper was on there. It ended up ruining the valence, cracking my grill, and denting my headlight mounts and core support.

    Managed to pack 5 broads in an e21...
    Alex came over and decided to start shaving things, no more wiper rez and AC! I have to watch him closely, he might try and paint my bay gold. I stll have some AC components to take out...

    This made its way out for my center console.


    Peep that rare OBA wheel, I love it. Portland swap meet find from my friend Hall.

    Speaker install.
    This car has perfect interior. Only flaw is a minor rip in the headliner.
    I picked up these exim 5x120 15x7 et11 wheels at the same swap meet for 100. Could probably sell for 1000, ive never seen the same set. The will make their way onto the e21, I think itr will be perfect. I ordered 18mm and 23mm adapters for hellaflush purposes.

    Polishing was a BiTcH.

    But rewarding. I will be painting the centers a diff color which i will unveil shortly.
    FIXING BENT STUFF



    Turned out better than I expected.

    I have about every part I need to get this thing where I want it. I have bilstiens, bav auto springs, foha spoiler, euro turns, new kidneys, new rear lights, adjustable subframe and the list goes on... Im going away for college so I hoping a lot of progress can come in the winter months I have off.

    Freshly Lowered cuz willis likes to cut things.

    This is the height I am going for, real motorsporty.

    AAAAAnd my starter went out. I will be pulling the engine to paint the bay anyways, and this means I can put go fast goodies on the m10.

    P.S. I got 500 dollars free for getting backed into, hopefully that can go towards euro bumpers. I miss driving this thing while its out, but im looking forwards to the winter months for some progress! I have to do suspension, paint and will end up partially rebuilding the engine. Lots to do, I am hoping this guy will be looking flossy by next summer!! Ill update with much more pictures of parts, and just the car in general. This was just kind of a quick catchup on everything thats happened so far...

    YOURE RIGHT
    Glass and door panels out because I am not painting it the same color. New color that I wont tell anyone tell its done.

    Starting body work, still doesnt run, need a lot of parts, i have money but no time. The opposite of my usual situation. I live in an awful messy smell dorm now.

    GOT ADAPTERS TEST FITTED WHEELS MEH ITS PERFECT SO WHAT.





    Thats it. Boring I know. No more updates until Thanksgiving, then lots of progress this winter! Still need to buy starter, header, injectors, hoses, battery, alternator ect, AND Adam needs to source me some euro bumpers and stock valence.
